You can't go wrong here. This restaurant is undoubtedly one of the best Italian eateries I've ever visited. The owners--a married couple--help create a warm ambience with their great sense of humor, exceptional customer service and friendliness. You can even request a surprise menu and let yourself be spoiled with the flavors of delicious Italian cuisine!

Another great evening in this super family owned place in Berlin. Always come here when visiting the city and will come again on Sunday for the second time during this trip! :-)

We made a reservation for a family with 2 teenage kids. Nice open restaurant on a corner in Kreuzberg. Warm welcome. Good choice of different food (meat, fish, vegetatarian) on the meny and today's specials on the wall. We ordered starters which tasted very fresh (big german portions); caprese salad, fried artichokes and fried mushroom. All tasted very fresh and... More

Unable to get a reservation at another Italian restaurant for the evening, we found Peperoncino on Tripadvisor and made our way. What a surprise! No pretension at all (in fact, when we arrived we were concerned we'd dropped into a local shop), but all the attention you'd need to feel loved by the chef and staff alike. Not a bubbly... More

Had dinner on this place two times while on berlin. They have amazing Italian food for incredible cheap prices. I tried the spaghetti with onion and garlic (5,90 euro) and bolognese on the other day (6,80 euro). The staff is very friendly as well. Unfortunately they don't speak English very well, but they have an English menu to solve the... More

What a great find. My husband and I went here when looking for a cheaper, non-German restaurant (sometimes you need a break from meat and potatoes). Our host was very friendly and the restaurant was quaint, a little off the beaten path. Traveling a little farther from tourist sites was well worth it. The gnocchi was fabulous! Would highly recommend... More

Had a wonderful, relaxed lunch here! Read through the bad reviews and can't quite understand where they're coming from. May not speak English but in my opinion that shouldn't be criteria for enjoying a meal. (Plus there's an English menu available.) Had the mixed antipasto platter and it was excellent. Took a break afterwards for some great conversation (very relaxed/non-rushed... More

The waitress was very kind. The food we had was pasta. The red sauce was taste less and too much spaghetti. The cream sauce was not thick enough to stick on the penne so it was not really tasteful. The owner did a smoke outside en we smell the smoke inside.

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighborhood Profile
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighborhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
