The restaurant is very popular with both tourists and locals so booking is a wise choice. However we did not and were lucky to get a table. Althought very busy the service was excellent and very quick. We both had a pizza all named after an Apostel and it was excellent and very big and filling. They also serve their... More

Always worth the visit...Pizza with massive Scampi's and lemon sounds strange but put some fresh ground black pepper on there and you are on the way to heaven...this is a Berlin institution and is still going strong, vist when you can, get some Pizza!

This was another stop on the giant group train during my last visit. 12 Apostel is really good if you need to go somewhere with a big group. It has tons of space, making large family-style tables easy for them to accommodate. On top of that, it happens that 12 Apostel makes really solid pizzas and other Italian fare that... More

Catered for a group of 15 hungry marathon runners without any issues. Great location. Within walking distance of Arcotel John F. Fantastic range of pizzas. Huge portions. Reasonably priced. Nice loud atmosphere. Very enjoyable evening.

Visited 12 Apostel last Sunday evening. It was very busy and after the inital welcome from a man showing us to our table (outside in the covered over area) the waiter who served us was miserable. He stood at the table and looked at us blankly. The food (pizzas and another main dish) came quickly, nothing special about them and... More

Total chaos, full, noisy and nearly impossible to get any service or food. Minimum wait for a drink was 30 minutes and it took 90 minutes after ordering for the food to arrive. Quality of the food mediocre, at best. We were told that some staff had fallen ill and therefore there was a total breakdown of service. No excuse!

We decided to check this place out since every time we walked by it was full. Surprisingly with a full place we did not have to wait a long time for the starters. The starter where large and almost a meal in itself. The pizzas are good and same with them, it did not take a long time to wait... More

Charming atmosphere, great service and amazing food. Pizzas were really big and delicious. Due to its central location in Berlin Mitte we had dinner just after visiting the main tourism attractions in the city centre. We loved it.

The pizza was great, but no more special than any other pizza place I have eaten at. What is great here though is the venue, with the beautiful ceilings and cosy atmosphere. prices are reasonable too and you can take-away any pizza you don't manage to eat on the night (which is likely as they are huge!) Our only critisism... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
