“Nice and authentic food in a non pretentious, familiar environment. ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Simple, nice Italian food served by very friendly staff. Caring owner who discreetly but regularly checks on his guests to make sure their needs are met. The prices are very reasonable. Genuine Italian family restaurant that surely deserves a visit if you are in the area! I would be inclined to disagree with the previous review when it comes to the ambiance: this is not a trendy, young place, but rather a completely chilled and non pretentious trattoria that offers good and simple food.

I would recommend their saltimbocca (traditionally meat rolls filled with ham, cheese and sage: here the meat is not rolled up, but the dish is tasty). Lovely is also the bruschetta that the friendly owner will serve you free of charge while you wait for your food.

I would happily recommend this place for an informal dinner with family or friends.

“Delicious food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

On one of my frequent travels to Berlin many years ago I found this lovely restaurant, hidden from the main road. It certainly is one of these places that everyone hopes to find on their trip! La Cenetta has delicious food, a very friendly staff and an Italian atmosphere and all for very reasonable prices. The family business is always on top of including new dishes to their menu and responding to their customers' wishes. I cannot recall how often I went to La Cenetta for a lovely meal but it has been years and I always look forward to going back there.

If you are looking for a real Italian restaurant offering a variety on traditional dishes, pay La Cenetta a visit.

“Highly recommendable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Great service, nice place, really authentic atmosphere, cold beer and delicious food! Had fresh fish from the grill and the pasta is perfect, too. Should I ever visit Berlin again, I'll come back for sure.

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

I ate on this restaurant with my art class in 2008. Five years later and still good food. We ate pasta with duck and pesto. Very good service with small apetizers and the house's own orange limoncello (really good). Cheap for the food quality and
Portion size.
