Great staff, and impeccable location! The pizza we ordered was very tasty, but served to the seven of us approx five minutes after ordering. How can you make seven pizzas that fast and still keep them fresh? The place is not that authentic and very touristy.

Not a bad place, food arrived fast and there was no major issue with it at all. You wouldn't rate it 4*, but considering the price range you get what you pay for.

After visiting the MauerMuseum, we were looking for a quick, hearty dinner. This was an excellent choice. The food was authentic and tasty. The service was good. Our only dilemma was that we intended to charge the meal, but they only took cash. It was a bit of a scramble, but the ATM is right down the street.

We were seated and served quickly the vegetable starter was ok however when the mains cane one dish was wrong. When I said I didn't order that the waiter looked... More

When we found this place, at first we were just really happy we`d found a place to eat. When we got in, we were really charmed by the atmosphere, and we also thought the menu looked very interesting. It was all very relaxed and the waiter was friendly. Just to our liking. We ordered a pizza each, and we were... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat and didn't fancy a KFC or McDonalds. There wasn't many people in when we looked in the window but we looked at the menu and decided to eat here. The pizza's were nice and came very quickly. It was fairly cheap as well. You can't pay by card, it is cash only. We... More

Visited here for lunch - we had two pizzas both were so good. Great size and ingredients tasted fresh. We had a glass of wine and a beer and the bill was just over 20 euros!! Can't beat it, a great spot to sit and rest your feet for an hour with good food. Defiantly recommend!

Maitre D. Gestured towards a table because his mouth was stuffed with food when I walked in. The mushrooms in the mushroom pasta were not cooked. My beer came with a fly

Typical great little Italian restaurant, perfect late lunch stop and very tasty dishes. We had the lasagne and Carbonara (both clearly made with fresh ingredients and herbs).

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
