Uncrowded Italian

This Italian restaurant has good salads and very ample main courses. The service was very slow. They could well do with a couple more on the wait staff.

We took a friend to dinner here while on tour with our orchestra. It made the night off really memorable. Fabulous service, great food and gorgeous rooms. It was NOISY but that may have been in large part to a large table of men nearby who had obviously had a very successful meal! Not a problem for us as it... More

Are you ready for a break from typical German fare? This Italian restaurant is fantastic. The pasta is fresh and the menu varied. Great wine list. Great service.

The concierge at our high end hotel recommended this restaurant and from the moment we stepped inside, what a delight! Atmosphere, service, wine, wait staff, attitude, food couldn't have been better. Our waitress was such a delight we didn't want the evening to end. We made reservations again for three nights later, even though it was for 9:30 p.m. Highly... More

I left a little disappointed with this restaurant, especially after reading some of the rave reviews on TA. I just got the impression that we were just one of a number of diners, that our presence was of no great concern; no warm welcome, no "Was everything OK? Thanks for coming." In other words, a little cold. The food was... More

While staying nearby we wanted to try the restaurant for no other reason but the proximity to our hotel and rave reviews on TA. Went without a reservation and were seated immediately, we were asked for drink in 20 mins which felt long but then for the main courses we had to wait another 30 mins. The food was not... More

Whoever says best food in europe either does not know customer service or had been served in a Bronx. We waited 30 mins for someone to bring us a menu and additional 20 mins to take an order. Next 30 mins for lamb cutlets to arrive which were stale, cold and tasteless. Worst experience of Berlin we had dinner next... More

Traveled Eastern Europe for 2 weeks and this was by far our best meal. Steak was perfect as were the grilled prawns. Highly recommend.

Food was delicious- room was very pretty. Portions were adequate so that you could enjoy three courses without feeling too full!

We did not intend to have a fancy Italian dinner but heavy rain forced us to go in. The result was a very pleasant dinner among colleagues. The winelist was impressive with a huge collection of wines from all over Italy, but also other countries. Food was typical Italian: relatively simple but great taste. Pasta with truffels, lamb with tomatoes,... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
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.
