Peppone on a Thursday night was two thirds full, and with the exception of one family with two children, all fairly mature couples, which contributed to a slightly subdued atmosphere, in contrast to the nearby Essenza (see separate review). Previous reviews had criticised the service, though on this evening, apart from a rather formal start, the staff were relatively friendly. The wine list was pricey - our pleasant but not outstanding Sardinian red was 39 Euro - but the menu was varied and not overly expensive. We had mushroom based starters, with the thinly sliced cold combination with celery and parmesan better than the warm shitake. For main, the truffle pasta was good; the green spaghetti with capers and chilli rather dominated by capers and olive oil. 107 Euro without dessert and before tip (the water a relative Berlin bargain at 5 Euro) was rather more than the meal merited, so despite an enjoyable evening, we will look to try other Italian restaurants next time.

Elegant interior (don't let the street location fool you) Discreet, helpful staff and lovely wine and food. Not cheap but worth it for a special evening!

I was staying at the Ritz Carlton,so this was only a 5 minute walk away
It was a beautiful summer's evening so I sat outside. I was dining alone on a Saturday evening but was made to feel very welcome.
I had tomato and mozzerella salad to start, which was very fresh and tasty. I followed with gnocchi with a tomato and basil sauce, which was excellent
Considering the location and quality of the food, the price was very reasonable

We visited this restaurant on our second night in Berlin . Having been disappointed the previous night at 'The Armit' Indian restaurant around the corner on night one and having read the earlier trip advisor reviews this was Berlins opportunity to answer back. With Peppone it did - with a whimper ! The restaurant was quiet - only 5 tables were in use - not a problem though the atmosphere was good . (I get the impression this is a fledgling restsurant in a developing area and tucked away from the throbbing masses around Potsdammer Platz and its day will come.) The food as others have reported is 'innovative' and it is 'pricey' especially for the quality. . Good ? Yes , Exceptional ? No. What tipped this restaurant the wrong way was an apparent lack of interest from the staff . Easily 10 mins frim the time of our arrival to provide menus and ask if we'd like to order a drink . Bread provided without butter or olive oil and a further 10 min wait for two small butter balls to arrive. Starters and main courses arrived after further unacceptable delays . Now, we're enjoying a leisurely weekend break here - we're in no hurry and pretty chilled out but we are hungry and looking forward to eating but this is stretching it ! Some 30 mins after our main course has been finished we are still awaiting a dessert menu or to be asked if we wanted a coffee. We decided after a further 5 mins to ask for the bill and leave - and yes at that point we were asked if we'd like a coffee 'on the house' . Sorry mate, too late - just like everything else tonight. Regretably our search for Berlins best "all rounder" continues !
