Unusual location very near Museum Island. The restaurant seats 100's but it still has atmosphere. We sat outside and were served by a really nice girl who was very helpful. Trams were running by just behind us and trains rattling overhead! Great fun. We all had wood fired pizza and all very happy. Lovely crispy base. Beer was fine and... More

If you go to museuminsel, and you must go, a good place to take a break and a nice pizza is the restaurant. it's located in front of the main entrance of the Pergamo museum (this entrance is now closed)

We had a nice lunch here after spending the morning at Museum Island. It is very close by. We had a Margarita pizza which was thin crust, fresh and delicious. Service was uninterested but adequate and did not detract too much from our experience. Would go here again.

Massive restaurant, but make a booking, as very busy. Understandable, as any choice made from the menu, is great. Very polite staff.

Was recommended this place by a friend and we were not let down. The pizzas are HUGE with loads of toppings and plenty of choice. Staff were friendly and helpful and it is not overpriced, especially considering it is just a short walk from Museum Island. Really good Italian food.

Went there last week. Food was average or better. Atmosphere is cool, but loud. Very casual. Since I was with a large group, it may not have been the best indicator of what it's like to go with 4-6 people. Check it our for yourself for a lively evening in an energetic space.

It is definitely not true that this restaurant has unfriendly waiters. We have had three of them at our table and they were all very friendly. We did not reserve a table and the restaurant was loaded with guests, but they did theur very best to find a table for us. As starters we had carpaccio, tomato soup and vitello... More

We saw this in a couple of guidebooks and checked it out on here for reviews. It was a little tricky to find, but that might be because I'm rubbish at reading maps. The restaurant is tucked underneath the railway arches, just off Museum Island, on the south side of the Spree. They've converted the space beautifully to create a... More

This restaurant is on the way from the U Bahn to the Museum Island. It is under the railway arches and has a lot of neighbouring competition. It is deceptively big, the restaurant is two or three cavernous rooms with the apostles on the ceiling. The diners were tourists but also a lot of local business people. The occasional train... More
