“wonderful, peaceful meal on a quiet December Monday evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

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.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

This is an excellent restaurant. The food is superb. It is always busy but they have an exceptional menu. One year ago I left my suit jacket here and they sent it to me in the UK wih I think was fantastic service.

“Good celebrity spotting for not so hungry people...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

There is nothing wrong with the food in this place, fine italian dining with attentive service. Just don't go on an empty stomach, the portions are pretty tiny.

“Awesome italian in Berlin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

I went here with 4 customers and it turned out to be perfect choice. Excellent italian food, excellent wines and excellent service. Fell in love with this restaurant. If I ever visit Berlin again I will go back here. They serve awesome olive oil with the bread. It tastes like "early spring." So mild and delicious. Had to buy one bottle to take away back home.
