A great place for some delicious pizza. Menu also offers numerous other Italian options. Outdoor dining area is great on a lovely evening. While the fact that the train literally runs overhead may disturb some diners, I think it adds to the overall charm of this restaurant and isn't as noticeable... read more

We went in and the first thing that strikes you is how busy it is and the decor ,very popular and very impressive. We were found a nice table and ordered... More

We were seated and looked at the menus, but were not able to have a conversation across the table due to the insane noise level in the restaurant. Not caused by any specific group of people, but just the regular buzz of a full restaurant - but in a room that seemed to work as an amplifier and took the... More

We went here because the restaurant was in our capitool-guide. I think it is one of the best Italian restaurant in Berlin. The location is also very nice, underneath the S-line. I wood really recommend this please!

We were a group of eight without prebooking. Needed to wait awhile but were offered free drinks and snacks. Pizzas were lovely and service fast and good.

A friend of mine, a Berlin local, suggested this restaurant when I needed to organize a dinner for 25 people. It was within walking distance of our conference venue, took reservations, and was happy to bill people individually, so we went. Occupying one of the many storefronts that are built into the substructure of the S-Bahn, the place feels like... More

We were there several times. There are always many people there, families as well as couples, The pizzas are freshly made, actually there are 12 different ones on the menue. However you can easily modify them if you like. There is even a vegan version available. The noodle dishes are excellent as well. The rooms are nicely decorated.

We had dinner here with friends and colleagues during a visit to Berlin to attend a conference (see other restaurant, hotel, and attraction reviews). The speciality of 12 Apostel, which is conveniently located on Georgenstraße between Friedrichstraße station and the Museum Island, is a dozen varieties of pizza, each named for one of the apostles. The pizzas are delicious: thin... More

First night in Berlin I thought we had entered a typical European tourist trap, however I was wrong, admittedly everyone is packed in but it was definitely value for money. We purchased two huge cartwheel sized pizza with pretty much everything on except seafood as we all had specific tastes. I've no idea how much we spent but it wasn't... More

Staying in Mitte

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.
