“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

The restaurant is a fair walk from Sophie Charlotte Platz U Bahn station along, what in the evening appears a mainly residential tree lined avenue, but just keep walking and you will come across Don Camillo. Unfortunately, our original reservation had been for 11, but following a bout of sickness in our group only 8 of us arrived at the restaurant. On a Saturday evening this must have been annoying but the staff could not have been more accommodating. The restaurant was beautifully presented with starched linen and delicate fresh flowers. The other diners were plainly enjoying themselves and although, as a group, we were initially a little downhearted by our friends absence the atmosphere soon put us in the mood for a fun evening. The wine, taken from an open barrel was both delicious and reasonable and the portions were good. Just for starters, mains and drinks our bill was 50 Euros per head so, if you were going to have three courses + coffee, it was certainly not cheap. However, as we were leaving the owner came over to talk to us and wished our poorly friends well, it really was a lovely, friendly place.

“Unforgettable experience :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Amazing to be greeted and served by the owner - he tells you everything about the food and if it all sounds too good to choose from, you can get a little bit of everything. It's a really personal approach and you feel very welcome here. The deserts were amazing - and the Berlin Wall was the best of them all!

“Fantastic experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

The restaurant is in a beautiful area of Berlin. And you don't just go to dinner there, it's a true experience! No menu, they present the different dishes you can choose from on a trolley, the show you what it is and tell you about the ingredients and how it is prepared. You can also choose to take a bit of everything (that's good because eveything tastes sooo good!).
The food is excellent, the service is great, the people working there are pleasant and funny. And it wasn't that expensive at all! One of the best Italian restaurants I have ever been to! Try it!!!

“Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Food and service fantastic! It is a 15-20 minutes drive by taxi from the tourist area, but really worth it. Italian at its best!

“excellent food and experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Booked this restaurant for a business dinner with guests from UK China and USA
The owner makes this a unique experience we did not consult a menu or wine list once for each course he visited our table and with great style and personality introduced all offers for each course with recommeendations. The same occurred wwithin the wine and he has such style and personality I simply followed his recommendations as did all my guests and none of us were disappointed the food wine and atmosphere were superb.
