This restaurant serves very traditional Italian trattoria cooking. It is good cooking and there is evident skill in the kitchen. We had a vegetable soup with truffles and it was delicious. The pasta dishes were well prepared and balanced dishes - good cooking. On the downside it took the servers 30 minutes to get us a drink once seated. In... More

Recommended by the hotel. Spot on. We wanted Italien food. A bit creative and good quality. Supposedly they get their ingredients frequently from Italy. The pasta was one of the best in years. Buratta with salmon and truffled honey. What an interesting combination. Good house wine. Left with satisfaction.

I rarely refuse to finish a meal. But sometimes you just have to go. We‘ve read somewhere that this was Brangelina‘s favorite restaurant in Berlin. (I know.) And we craved some Italian so we went. We got in for very early dinner and could sit without a reservation. The salads we offered for starters were incredibly bland and had hardly... More

Very cozy place with warm Italians owners. The food is genuine and incredibly tasty. Based on the first floor of a residential building, it occupies two apartments, and the waiters are crossing from one apartment to another using the common stairs. The firs time I was there, they have fantastic big shrimps with coffee sauce, but because they change de... More

Al Contadino Sotto Le Stelle is a bright modern looking trattoria located on a side street but a short walk from 2 different U-Bahn stations. The menu is more modern than many such restaurants, but there are traditional dishes as well. We started with caponata and carpaccio di zucca, then had lasagna and rabbit as our mains. The dishes were... More

Out in east Berlin this restaraunt rates right up there with the best. Service was fantastic food and wine was exquisite for a great price. What else do you need? 5 min walk from nearest train station and plenty of trendy bars around there for pre dinner drinks. Worth the 15 min train ride.

It's the second time this year we visit this restaurant and once again we were blown away by the amazing cuisine and variety. The service was exceptional and they let us in right before midnight when they were closing. Can't wait to come back again and try a new dish!

This was our first night in Berlin and we wanted a relaxing meal with our son and his girlfriend. Al Contadino fit the bill perfectly. We had three different starters between the four of us and all were delicious. Our four different mains were equally tasty. Finally we shared two sorbet desserts. We also had a bottle of wine, sparkling... 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.
