Great pizza in a unique atmosphere

In the middle of Berlin Mitte, close to many tourist hot spots like Museum Island, 12 Apostel is a good place where you can have decent food (pizza, of course) for a goo price. the pizzas are huge, no need for an appetizer. Nice location underneath the Berlin S-Bahn, in the evening,particular on... read more

Nice location underneath the Berlin S-Bahn, in the evening,particular on the weekend, quite popular. Reservations recommended.

My only recognition is to the chef's because of their amazing pizza and pasta, the portions are big and the food is just really good, however the service we had was the complete opposite. The waitress treated us as if she didn't want us there and just chucked our food at us and walked off, then when what looked like... More

I have eaten here twice and though the location is excellent, located directly at the Savingyplatz train station, the food and service are only mediocre. The tables in the courtyard and in front are excellent and if you are looking for something for brunch, this might be a place to start before seeing Berlin. By Berlin standards, however, there is...

This is a very nice place, well decorated and nice to spend time in. Food is very good, although not cheap. Unfortunately its usually quite busy, so the service is pretty slow.

This restaurant is very atmospheric, and offers generous portions. Service was good. The marinated salmon is to be recommended. Decor was interesting too.

The food was absolutely ok, a little bit tasteless then. The service was not the best and I was very surprised that they did´t except credit card, only cash.

Excellent - should not be missed. We could not find this restaurant at first but ended up here for coffee and dessert. We wished we would have eaten the delicious looking pizza.

We came across this restaurant on the way back to Friedrichstrasse from the Pergamon Museaum and popped in for lunch. The restaurant is located under railway arches and is tastefully decorated with classical type painting. The service was good although we were at the end of lunch hour and the restaurant wasn't very busy. The food was excellent and reasonably... More

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

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.
