Visited this restaurant as a 85 year celebration, food was amazing and staff was very friendly. Their starters were out if this world, an absolutely must try! Will definitely go back next time we visit Berlin!

I've been to this place many times now and I would recommend it to everyone. The food is delicious (and trust me I know Italian food) and the whole team is super nice.

Loud and crowdy. Main course was not my taste, but that's not a big deal. Waiters did not helped out on a situation, where another guest, sitting close with his back to me, had half his butt uncovered. They didn't do anything - I don't need that kind of restaurant.

Monday evening and the Restaurant is packed like always - got a table for 2 and service is authentic and fast - sometimes they spend too much time with Stammgäste and the waiters are in genral quite talkative :) Carpaccio was 5 star quality, pasta frutti di mare was average and I would not eat it again - special desert...

This restaurant is a bit out of the way - find it near the Viktoria-Luise UBahn station. It's well worth seeking out. Probably best to book, we hadn't and were lucky to get a table. Inside the walls are covered with motorbike stuff and photos, drawings, cartoons etc showing the owner's passion for the sport, which all gives the place... More

Its hard to find, I make sure to order a table. Its crowded and I understand why. The food is great- but the portions are really to big. My Vitello Tonato was huge and my Tagliata was even bigger. But my god it was tasty. Wine menu is good. The owners and waiters are all italians. Thanks - will return

Went here in a family style setting and enjoyed consistently great service from beginning to end from multiple of the waiters in this small, distinctly Italian decorated restaurant. The food was also very good from start to finish for all six people in the party. Clear recommendation.

To be able to enjoy dining in this great restaurant you have two options : make a reservation, or failing that, be prepared to turn up at 17.00 when they open and eat quickly. This place is so rightly popular that you will most likely be turned away otherwise. I eat here every year and I have never been disappointed... More

Small intimate restaurant in a lovely neighbourhood that was booked by a friend living in Berlin, the night we were there it was packed out, found the staff to be very friendly and happy to explain the menu since my German is terrible, the food was of very good quality as was the wine, the atmosphere was great and we...

Centrally located, walking distance from the Kadewe, this restaurant offers amazing Italian food and drinks. It is an absolute "must" to enquire about the daily menu which offers fresh, seasonal dishes. The pasta dishes are amazing so are the fish ones. I can strongly recommend this place.

Neighbourhood Profile
In 1963, Schöneberg was the centre of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the centre of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
