An excellent restaurant. A little way from the centre of Berlin but worth the journey. It has a lovely atmosphere and the owner is friendly. All of our food was delicious. Tuna, pastas (squid, carbonara, beef ragu and ravioli with truffle) burrata and panna cotta....More

We started at 6pm, had a beautiful table, wonderful conversations and really charming service. The smell and taste of the caponata, a Sicilian aubergine stew served on lettuce, was incredible. It is difficult to match such a brilliant starter. The fresh pasta as a main...More

The wine selection is pretty good, we had some liver with figs and the entrecote, both we're divine. the staff was really nice and the expresso at the end was probably one of the best i had in Berlin.

This is a small authentic Italian restaurant. The menu is small, BUT very dish (we were a party of 7) was as good as it gets. The best tuna stake ever. The location is somewhat obscure but the service mostly by the owner was informally...More

By far one of the best Italian eateries I've been in whilst in Germany. The staff are so friendly (make you feel like you're eating at a friends house). The food is the best I've tasted. The wine is neatly paired with every dish. Nothing...More

We really liked the restaurant and the wine and food was really good. Compared to other italian restaurants in Berlin I am not sure if it was worth the higher cost. Great caponara though..

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here
you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
