It is difficult to get a traditional italian pizza in Berlin, that´s why I am really happy to have two "12 Apostel" restaurants in Berlin (there is one at "Savignyplatz"-station as well) Although it is close to a touristic hotspot (Friedrichstraße), the 12 Apostel is highly esteemed by locals. In addition to great pizza (made in a stone oven), they... More

My wife and I had lunch here and the food was absolutely delicious and the waitress was friendly, attentive, and very intuitive. I am emphasizing the service because really good service is so rare in Germany.

We were at the the Pergamon museum and needed a place to eat nearby, checked Tripadvisor, and found this not far away. As we were hungry and nearby we decided to eat lunch here. The meny is large and should have something for everyone. The styling is a bit to much for my taste, with murals and a large painted... More

Very popular spot with a friendly and unpretentious feel. Quite busy and noisy even though its not a main street, this is due to the train running above and the trams on the street. Great starters and good salads. Pizza is the staple here and they are huge and very thin - but overloaded in a way Italian pizzas never... More

Great place! Much recommended! Friendly staff and possibly the greatest pizza I've ever had! Also with ample space so it's very unlikely you wouldn't find a free table.

I recently went with a few friends and had no idea what to expect, they only told me it was a good Italian restaurant. It is indeed. They have a nice terrace, the inside is huge and lovely, the staff is very friendly and the service not too long. I had a very nice Mai Tai to start with, quite... More

We decided to try some pizza in Berlin. This restaurant is very easy to find. It is right off the exit of the S-Bahn. I tried the Judas Pizza. The spicy pizza but it was just medium spicy just the way I wanted it! You must pay Cash, They don't take Credit Card. The Pizzas are one size and they... More

Large Italian retaurant in Mitte. The lunch special is a great deal. You get a wood-fired oven, handcrafted pizza or pasta dish for a very reasonable amount, considering you are in the middle of Berlin. All the pizzas have fresh ingredients, and provide the classical Italian toppings. The pastas are quite filling, and very delicious. An inexpensive but filling lunch... More

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
