Italy is a Place in Berlin

Let’s be honest. If there’s fine cuisine to be found in Berlin, it’s probably italian. Nothing against all the great chinese, japanese, mexican, ethiopian, lebanese or indian diners – but most of them won’t live up to that Insalata Buffala, Lasagna Verde or Tartuffo Bianco a certain “Ristorante”, “Enoteca” or “Trattoria” serves in your need […]
