“Consistently Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

After many meals at Casa Matti I can safely say - the food is consistently great! Never have I had a bad meal there - the food is always top quality. Lovely atmosphere, great view by the Spree river, friendly/professional staff. I've enjoyed some dishes more than others, but that's a matter of taste. The quality, as mentioned, is always first rate. My personal favorites are the Tagliatelle al Salmone and the Pasta Tartuffo with fresh shaved Truffles. Surprisingly, the beef filet and Entrecote dishes contain the best beef I've had in Berlin. Not cheap, but very reasonably priced, especially for what you get.

“Very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

We accedentally ended up at casa matti after another restaurant we wanted to go to was closed for the summer, but for me it was a lucky accident since it was a plesent expirience. We both ordered pasta dished, I ordered ravioli with gorgonzola and my girlfriend ordered tagliatelle with salmon. When the food came, our young waiter brought my girlfriend the grilled salmon, but when we told him that it was not what we ordered he imediatly took it back and got us the right dish.
Despite this blunder by the waiter I still have to give casa matti 4/5 since the staff was nice and the food was really good.

“Great food but one major low point”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Casa Matti was a short walk from our hotel in Berlin. Having spied it when returning from a riverside walk, we dropped in for coffee and dessert one evening and dinner another evening.

Coffee and dessert was fantastic. Great food, wonderful warm service from staff that rounded off a great evening.

Dinner later that week was also quite nice. The food here really is very good and the staff do their very best to provide excellent service.

However, beware that this new restaurant 'does not yet have credit card facilities'. Seems to me this is ridiculous in 2014 and should be a part of any initial restaurant setup. So we paid by cash. The bill came to Euro80.00. Which was fine - the food and wine were all very good. However, upon paying by cash (good thing we had enough) the waiter took Euro100 and never returned with any change. I had to go and ask the manager for change! The manager just about clipped the waiter over the head as it was clear he was trying to keep Euro20 as a tip...!

That experience soured the evening considerably. Tips are voluntary and would never run to 25% of the bill without exceptional reason! Poor form from the waiter.

However, the food really is excellent so don't hesitate to go there if you're in the area.

“Friendly and welcoming Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

An interesting and varied menu - Italian with some German additions and twists. The house wine was excellent and the service friendly and efficient. The fact that there were lots of locals dining there says much about how this relatively new restaurant has already made its mark.

“A very friendly place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

The waiters were very helpful and welcoming to us on the first and another two visits. The food (Italian) was good too, epically the fruits de la mare. Just along the riverside from the Abion Hotel and good also for an afternoon drink after a hard day sightseeing in the centre of Berlin on the way back to the Hotel.
