The reservation worked and we were placed decently, the place has a charm and atmosphere that stood the test of times, I had been an occasional guest several times roughly two decades ago and came again. The waitress was helpful, professional and dedicated. The menu has a wide choice of classics and sophisticated but not overly engineered dishes, it is a decent up-market italian restaurant with a long tradition in this place, dating from the time before Berlin became a posh or hip metropolis. However, one of the starters we had (melanzane alla parmigiana), which is supposed to come piping hot from the oven, was more stomach-friendly luke warm, and one of our group was granted a good 15 minutes extra time to appreciate the view of the 6 main courses in our group of seven before his dish arrived, without a warning this would happen. The food was good otherwise, but the experience left room for improvement. The restaurant offered an espresso as compensation. I might come back for good memories, but if your life or carreer depends on the perfect dinner, you might be at risk. If you are relaxed about an occasional lapse in the kitchen, you will enjoy the place.

Wonderful food, great service. We chose this place because the selection was more interesting than what I guess I would call your ‘token Italian’ place you find in Germany. We were very please with our choice. Stuffed zucchini flower was tasty and the handmade ravioli was on point. Highly recommend.

We really enjoyed our food and the ambiance of the restaurant was great. Our server was mildly despondent, but that’s alright. What really threw us off was how shockingly rude they were when we called to make a reservation. He cut us off, kept repeating ‘ciao’ and blocked both my and my friend’s number. We were literally just trying to book a table and I was very surprised with how the situation was handled. However once we got to the restaurant we had a nice time - foreigners in America would never have been treated like that.

The food was good and the restaurant too. The prices are normal for a good Italian restaurant. What I didn’t like was that after I paid they asked me for a 10% tip for the service, and obviously it was not on the bill!! Really disappointed!

Wir waren mit einer Gruppe dort. Schon der Empfang war sehr freundlich. Der gute Service setzte sich bis zum Schluß fort. Wir hatten die Gästeanzahl erhöht und erst vor Ort wieder reduziert, alles kein Problem für sale e tabacchi und für den Service. super nett und flexibel. Das Essen - vor allem der Thunfisch und die Pasta - war sehr gut. Weine waren ebenfalls sehr gut.

Traditionsreicher Authentischer Italiener, lockere Atmosphäre, sehr gutes Service Personal, manchmal ein bisschen vorlaut aber herzlich. Zum Teil schon jahrelang im Einsatz, was für das Restaurant spricht. Küche ist hervorragend, gut, bodenständig aber nichts vom andren Stern. Pasta war diesmal ein wenig klein. Besonders ist der große weite hohe Gastraum.

The servers were extraordinarily rude and inattentive. We had a strong feeling that they never wanted us to return to the restaurant ever again. We were seated on the terrace, as was everyone that day, and asked to move to a quieter table, which seemed to be fine, although the waiter was rather grumpy about it. The first course came in a decent amount of time and was quite tasty, but we had to ask several times for bread. Once the bread arrived—it was excellent, with a very good olive oil—we were completely abandoned, as if we had dropped off the face of the earth. I wanted to order a glass of wine but I was unable to get the waiter's attention. Other people came and went. Finally after close to an hour I got up and went inside, searching for our waiter (he had not even appeared outdoors for at least 20 minutes). He brought the food immediately, explaining that he thought that we had wanted to chat and eat our bread (the bread was long gone at this point, as we were starving). My pasta probably would have been good had he brought it when it was ready but it seemed to have been sitting under a heat lamp for rather a long time, either that or it was just not very good. We shared a dessert at the end, an acceptable but very ordinary creme caramel, and ordered coffees. Again, the coffees took an extraordinary amount of time to arrive. Neighbouring tables had coffee delivered with no trouble, but by then we seemed to be jinxed. But as soon as I took out my credit card to pay, the waiter was there in a split second. All in all, an unnecessarily aggravating experience.

Seit Jahren gleichbleibend hohe Qualität. Service professionell und mit der typisch italienisch leichten Arroganz. Machen charmante Sprüche zwischendrin aber wieder wett. Wie in teureren Restaurants üblich geht man nicht übersättigt nach Hause. Es bleibt definitiv eines unserer Lieblingsrestaurants.
