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.

I returned to Ribaltone this week after an absence of a few months to be greeted by Marco, the proprietor like a long lost friend. His restaurant was full and he struggled to find a place for us but with some defy rearrangement managed. I knew from my many visits prior that both food and ambience, looking out over Viktoria...

We had dinner hier because a couple of friends recommended us this restaurant (we are fan of "Belmonte", another italian restaurant nearby). We made a reservation, but we had an awful table near the bar, where we could hardly listen to each other because the waiters were always yelling (they totally overact the "italian way" and make the atmosphere simply...

Walked past this place and it looked really cozy and was full of people. Returned the next night and were able to get a table. The food was just great - fantastic lasagna, great daily specials and a wonderful bruschetta. Friendly and helpful service from the waiters. Would love to visit again if I am in Berlin

Located on Victoria Louise Platz, this very lively and friendly Italian restaurant is very popular with high quality food and drink. Some of the waiters speak good English and the service is good. The decor is Italian motorcar so, cycles, motorbikes and memorabilia , all tasteful and the clientele appreciative. The daily specials are worth inquiring about since the menu... More

This place was recommended by friends and is so popular with locals that we only managed to get a table at the third time of trying, but boy was it worth the wait. The waiter was incredibly welcoming and friendly, the food was superb and the price reasonable. You can probably find fancier places, but if you like great food... More

Staying in Schoneberg

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.
