Good food, Atrocious service.

The Lady and I had eaten there a few times, the pizza is good and the service average. On this occasion, however it was terrible. We waited at the door for fifteen minutes catching the eye of waiters and waitresses, and they just ignored us. I asked to be seated and we were given a table. No menus arrived, in the meantime, three other tables were seated and given menus and orders taken. I had to go and ask for a menu at the service hatch, and was told it was coming. 5 minutes later I went again to ask for a menu, the waiter went off to get one, evidently expecting me to follow, but I went and sat down again. The waiter shouted at me, walked to the table and threw the mus at it from couple of meters away. We stood up, thanked him for his friendly service and left. We have not been back since.

There are other places in Berlin which do equally as good, and better, pizza and have impeccable service. Pizza Lubau in Friedrichshain is one top choice and Papa Panne in mitte is another. I would heartily reccomend these two over Il Ritrovo-Cucina Casalinga Popolare.

The best pizzas we had in Berlin. The pasta is also good! Our favorite is the pizza Picantissima! But watch out, the restaurant is always full, if you´re in a group of more than 4 people, you might not have a table right away! But we recommend, and everybody that likes a good pizza and is in Berlin should try it!
