Basi'l was traditional Italian food. The pasta dishes were nice and the antipasti platter for starters is highly recommended - however this place definitely lacks atmosphere and the waitress seemed as though she couldn't be bothered.

I recently had the pleasure of dining at Basil Berlin. I coordinated a group of business guests at the restaurant. The coordination and friendliness of the owner - Marcus - was a seamless experience. He was very accommodating and quick to respond to all correspondence.

The restaurant is located in a hip neighbourhood of the revitalized East Berlin in the centre of the city. The restaurant is modern, intimate and has a friendly vibe from the moment you walk in the doors. Service staff were great!

The food was fresh and delicious - pasta made fresh on site daily. Excellent wine list including the exclusive house-brand Riesling (if you think all Rieslings are too sweet - think again, this white wine had a great nose, lots of beautiful fruit and a soft finish... a great little surprise!)

I would highly recommend taking a group or choosing to pop in to dine here. And be sure to say hello to Marcus!

Just 2minutes from the over priced tourist traps of hackescher market, basil provides a quiet atmosphere with a lovely terrace out back perfect for dining alone, as a romantic couple or with friends. I've only eaten their salads and bruscettas (recommend the bbq salad and the harissa bruscetta!) on the 4 occasions I've visited but friends have also recommended the pasta dishes. Afterwards cross the street to riva bar opposite for a cocktail.

The food was so miserable, that I didn't even finish half of the small portion! In the end we payed $40 for 2 disgusting noodles and 2 beers! This restaurant is a big mistake!
