Friendly Italian

Made a welcome change from the standard German cuisine. Very friendly, busy Italian, the bruschetta was outstanding, pasta carbonara a little too salty for our palette, and the gnocchi first rate. Didn't have room to sample the puds on offer. Would definitely recommend.

Return to our hotel just across the road and was looking for somewhere close by for dinner. Spotted Pasta e basta and made our way to see if there were any tables available. Very busy inside, but the friendly waiter managed to squeeze us in. Fabulous pasta dishes, great wine and child friendly. What more could we ask for. Professionally... More

Great Italian food and excellent service. We payed around 80€ for two people, two courses each and a bottle of wine. The servant was observant and friendly but yet not pushy. Great!

We were staying across the street at the Hotel Otto and arrived back in the neighborhood at 10:30 pm after visiting the Brandenburg Gate and Berlin Wall Memorial. We were sure we were out of luck for dinner but decided to chance it and walk across the street. We are glad we did. We ended up having a great Italian... More

Family of four ate well - bruschetta and pasta dishes delicious. Tiramisu looked lovely but unfortunately had run out by the time we came to order dessert - still two of us enjoyed tartufo instead. Would also recommend for friendly atmosphere and good value for money.

Friendly service with a good range of Italian dish.es. We both had different pasta dishes and although well cooked seemed under seasoned.

We ate here on our first night in Berlin. The waiter was very friendly and spoke English which was very helpful. Me and my partner both had the lasagne which was very nice and at around 10 euros wasn't too expensive either. It came with a sauce which was also very nice too. The total bill came to around 30...

The food was so good that I went there twice during a conference at Technical University of Berlin. On one night I had pumpkin filled ravioli with truffle cream sauce. Excellent. For the second occasion, I took colleagues for a business meal where the service was great and we were able to have lengthy discussions for several hours. Naturally, close... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
