On a Monday night in early December, we ate at Bocca di Bacco (the mouth of Bacchus) on Friedrichstrasse in Berlin Mitte, having walked by the previous Saturday and noticed the waiting crowd spilling out onto the sidewalk. Our hotel reserved for us, a lovely table for two in the front window, and the beautifully decorated dining room was much calmer on a Monday. The other diners were a mix of shoppers and couples meeting up after work. This is a great location if you’ve been shopping in the Friedrichstrasse corridor and/or want to escape the hectic, crowded holiday market at the Gendarmenmarkt.
The meal was served beautifully, delicious and reasonably priced: 107 Euros, including two starters, two main dishes, a half-bottle of a delicious white Burgundy, still water, a coffee and a cappuccino. The salad and the cream of pumpkin soup were superb; our mains were excellent and fairly gentle in terms of calories, since we ignored the pasta offerings, choosing instead a sautéed calves liver and a dish with parmesan/basil encrusted grilled shrimp and fresh ricotta.
