This was really busy when we went on a Wednesday night, with all ages and plenty of locals, which is always a good sign. Business may have got in way of service, but decent enough. Portions, as others have said, can be enormous. The Caprese salad could be enough for four. Pizza's are big no match for our 13yo son,... More

We ate here this evening - just popping in for a quick meal and had excellent pizza and salad, followed by a superb tiramisu! Our waiter Nico could not have been more helpful, recommending food on the menu as well as giving advice on a few places to visit.

The basil pizza and pumpkin ravioli here were both delicious. Good quality food at a decent price point. We had two meals (the pizzas are big) plus a beer, wine and large bottle of water for 39 euros. On a Sunday night there was plenty of space to sit. My main complaint was with the waiter, who from the beginning... More

We passed this place on the way to the Savigy Platz S Bahn Station and thought we'd give it a try. It turned out to be one of our favourites, great Italian food and top notch friendly service. Great spaghetti, huge delicious pizza and a tasty chicken dish my wife tried a couple of times. This place is rightfully very... More

Ordered a huge table sized pizza with four different toppings to share between us - so much food. Pizza was cooked perfectly and washed down with excellent beers. The place was located in some old railway arches with a very interesting decor. Lively atmosphere which is ideal when with friends and looking to share good conversation and enjoy an evening...

A very good choice for all pizza lovers visiting Berlin. The thin-crust pizzas are tasty and quite huge so prepare to be hungry or share it with somebody. Recommended for lunch and/or for cure of hungover. The atmosphere is lively and noisy, and the mural-painted high ceilings are a nice touch. The service is not the best available, but the... More

Hands down best pizza I've ever had! On a recent trip to Berlin with my friend, we had this place on our very extensive itinerary; it was around 9pm and the place was mobbed. We both shared a pizza and a salad, thankfully as the pizzas are huge! Our waiter was lovely and quite taken aback at how many times... More

This is a good restaurant to go to have lunch. It is close to the Museum Island. Its location is unique, below the train tracks. There is a nice painting on the ceiling. The price is excelent. We ordered salad and salmon (business lunch) and they were very good. My friend had a red meat that was just ok. To... More

We had a very nice lunch here this weekend and have been very positively surprised. The location is very convenient to the Museums Insel, the restaurant is not one of these tourist traps, the rooms are really very nicely designed (you kindly feel comfortable very quickly) and the food is really good. Very taste and portions are almost too big... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
