My friend and I are very partial to some Italian food, so we were excited to find Donath which has a very authentic and rustic feel. We ate there twice, and whilst the food was not completely mind blowing it was really tasty, authentic, not expensive and lovely sized portions. The main selling point of this place is it's staff...

We've been to Donath many times the past 6 years and it's always a pleasure coming back. This was the first time we went there for lunch with our kid and the service was amazing. We got served by the owner himself. We ordered from the menu on the wall, the food was amazing like it always is. We ordered... More

This place is really expensive (€3 for 0.1 l wine!), service is poor - but the food is okay. The atmosphere is modernish - bistro-like, not too comfortable. There are many better places around...

We were there with a bunch of people. They have only a few dishes on a blackboard. You have to stand in the way- which doesn't feel comfortable. The food tastes good but the portion are not that big and even the price is a way too high for it. In total it is a bice hipster place.

We have visited Donath a couple of times over the last years and have never been disappointed. This time we enjoyed grilled chicken with baked potatoes and mixed dolci - just perfect.

A totally below average pasta restaurant that thinks it's something special. Pay €10 or €12 for a so-so & small plate of pasta, delivered with some of the worst service I've had in Berlin. The place was half empty when we there, but the waitress (when we managed to get her attention/walked to the bar to get service) spent the... More

Not only did we have to return the pasta because it was only half cooked but the waiter and the owner are disrespectful and rude to am extent which even exceeds normal Berlin bad behavior. It is really beyond any point of acceptance and the least Italian place u can think of from both good quality /taste and service

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighbourhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
