“Lovely Italian Bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

This is the kind of neighborhood Italian bistro that can be hard to find in the US. The menu is limited, but the food is great and the service was good.

“Decent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

Nice restaurant in the central berlin. The pesto spaghetti was tasty and well priced. San lorenzo was similarly good. Was really weird but every person coming in seemed to be young, good looking and female, seems to be a young persons' restaurant. The waitstaff were not really on the ball, and if they'd been more prompt this would be a 5/5.

“Limited choice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

The starter of mixed antipasti was tasty. However, the main course was rather disappointing. It focuses on about six or seven pasta dishes. The truffle pasta was rather disappointing; try and tasteless. The pannacotta was good. Nice selection of wines and beers for a small local restaurant.

“superbe Italian pasta in the center of Berlin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

As it started raining and hailing we rushed into this restaurant to have a drink at the bar. All the tables were taken and while sipping our beers we could glance into the kitchen and see the chef prepare some delicious pasta's, which smelled great as the waitresses carried them to the tables. We could witness all ingredients to be absolutely fresh so we decided to expand our drink with a meal.
As we moved to the terrace (incredibly hot inside) there was a mix-up with our order and we had to wait a little bit longer than expected. The two girls serving the resto were also overburdened and a bit stressy, but overall they did a great job.
The wine was tasty and affordable and the pasta as expected: superb. We tried tagliatelli rusticana, mjum.
Despite of the problems with service, a nice experience. Would definitely go back.
If you want to go, definitely book a table.
