A friend who lives locally recommended this place as one of the best in Berlin, and so 4 of us went along for my partner's birthday. After ready many of the reviews I was expected the food to be great but the service to be dreadful, but it wasn't that way at all. The food was as great as was expected, but from calling ahead to booking a table, to being warmly welcomes and then seated within seconds, it all went really well. The waiters were fine about having to verbally translate the menu items into English (the menus are in German and Italian) for us poor souls, and the food arrived very quickly. All in all it was a very pleasant experience and we did not have any complaints regarding the attitude of the staff or the quality of food.

We really enjoyed our stay here although we had to wait a while to order and the staff did not seem very friendly. But afterall the pizza was great and we had a good wine too. Good neighbourhood to stroll around and go to a bar afterwards.

A friend of ours lives in Kreuzberg and recommended this place so we decided to check it out. I also read the reviews on TA (as well) and was prepared for attitude and rude service.
But we went in with a game plan - be assertive, smile and be patience for a table. We were seated within 5mins. During that time another 3 groups arrived and none of them were turned away. The waiter spoke English and happy to serve us. We had no problems at all.
We ordered our pizzas at 9pm and they arrived at the table within 6mins - I'm not kidding. We were expecting to wait at least half an hour or more (like the previous reviews had stated) and were surprised when they reached our table so swiftly.
The menu had at least 30 different flavours - plenty to choose from the classics to interesting combinations. We ordered 2 pizzas, 1/2 litre red wine, 1 x large beer and 1 x large water and it came to 28 EURO. Bargain. Give it a try and see how you go.

They really make one of the best pizzas, but if you arrive at 17, MAYBE you will manage to eat at 22! Place is always overcrowded - so I let you imagine the noise, you have to shout to talk -, the toilettes are filthy, not to talk of the tables. Waiters do what they can, but the problem there is how the place is runned, no fault of waiters that have many table per person and are really under stress.
We had a very bad experience last time, I guess that they awesome pizza is not worth all the rest. There are many other places in Berlin where you can eat a good pizza and be in a normal and even nice environment.
