We visited on a Friday night, without reservation around 8.00pm and it was absolutely packed. We were seated quickly and the food was plentiful. Pizza's are big and very tasty if rather salty. Service was friendly but not the fastest. If in Berlin again we would definitely go back, good food, good atmosphere, good price.

Underneath the train tracks near Museum Island, the 12 Apostles offers good service and tasty pizza in a very cool space at quite reasonable prices. If I lived in Berlin, I'd come here all the time.

We had a meal at this restaurant in 2013 when we visited Berlin for the first time and was blown away by the food. Superb quality and quantity with great service. On our most recent visit we went to their sister restaurant at Bleibtreustrasse 49 near Savignyplatz station and the food was just as good. The restaurant is amazing and... More

There is nothing negative that can be said about 12 Apostel in central Berlin - maybe the fact it is not intimate or cosy - it is rather large and loud, so possibly not the best choice for romantic dinners. The place has been famous for its pizza for years and quite deservedly so. It is essentially an Italian restaurant... More

At the far end of a street of many bars and restaurants and just behind Humboldt University, this part of Berlin is great for a lively night out. 12 Apostel is a spacious (actually huge) restaurant with an attractive ceiling and a reputation for decent food and good beer at a very reasonable price. It's a small menu but I... More

The design of the restaurant 12 Apostel is nice. It it is located below the U-Bahn bridge. The place is incredibly noisy. It is dedicated mostly to large groups and, moreover, the metro increases a lot the level of noise. It is a very hot place too which increases the uncomfort. The food is not good. We have received cold... More

Went to this restaurant for lunch, plenty of free seats, also because this restaurant is quite huge. Pumpkin soup and vitello tonnato (veal in tuna sauce), together with roasted rosemary potatoes, everything was cooked to perfection, more than ok portions, very tasty. Prices are ok, around €50 for two. Decorated with some interesting italian style paintings, good atmospehere. A place... More

This is a huge restaurant under the railway arches, between Friedrichstrasse station and Museum Island. It seems to attract tour groups, and these groups are given priority - so if you go independently you are likely to be ignored, or suffer poor or slow service. Still, there are plenty of other places on Georgenstrasse which seem to give a friendlier... More

Went to this restaurant last week while I was on IFA 2014. I had a pizza and beer. They have their own local brew and it was decent. The pizza was an italian style thin crust. It was wery good. The price is average and the only real drawback is that they dont accept credit cards. All in all, a... More
