Disappointed - Expected significantly better southern Italian cuisine

Like many Italians who left Italy and came to Germany and operate as Chef/Owners, they have modified Italian cuisine to suit the tastebuds of the region they are in the longer they have been there. Atmosphere is good. The service was very good between the Chef's wife and the waiter with the... read more

We had been staying in the neighborhood for a week before we tried this restaurant. If we had tried this restaurant the first day we would not have eaten anywhere else. The physical decor is unassuming but the food is amazing. If you don't speak Italian or German the cute waiter with the dreads can translate. I had the bolognese.... More

We just happened across this restaurant and went in for dinner. We were lucky to get a table so probably better to book. When the front -of-house realised we didn't speak German so well, she rustled up a delightful and very helpful member of staff to explain the specials and gave us an English translation menu. The caponata with mozzarella... More

Heard about this through Trip Advisor, absolutely incredible Italian food. We both had the Bolognese and it was delicious. The portions are huge and great value for money with most of the pasta dishes being around €7. The waiter was highly accommodating and spoke enough English. The chef even came out to ask how we were enjoying our meal. A... More

From the outside, this restaurant is very unassuming, and there weren't too many people in when we arrived. The meals on the menu all seemed pretty basic, as well as the wine list (white/red or rose are the options). I started to think we'd made a mistake...but don't be put off! Order mains from the specials board - we had... More

A wonderful family restaurant with delicious Italian dishes. Would probably visit again next time I'm in Berlin.

Heard about this restaurant though Trip Advisor and was so glad we visited. My fiancé and I shared the 'antipasti for two' and it was the best selection I have ever tasted (I've had many in my time) it was truly delicious! The staff were friendly and we felt so welcome. If I were to go back to Berlin I... More

If You are broke and hungry - Go! If You are not broke and not that hungry - find another place. Charming service that lacked professionalism but got the job done. Boring antipasto. I paid 46 EUR for an ok bottle of Primitivo di Manduria, that was ok.

Wow, bit of an Italian food connoisseur and this is better than most in and outside of Italy. Anti pasti was out of this world, spag bol for main was the best I've ever had! Highly recommended! Would be the first place I'd come if I returned to berlin!! Lovely staff

Neighborhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighborhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
