Nice and big restaurant where larger groups can have a nice pizza. Quite cheap as well (12 euros a pizza and 0.5l of beer)

The place is always full, the pizzas are good and big. The restaurant has a punk/left italian attitude which is attractive and honest. But there's a stressed atmosphere inside. The waiters throw the menus on your table, which are dirty and nobody seems to care.The manager is screaming to the waiters, so they are in a hurry and stressed out.... More

You'll find this Italian restaurant in Berlin's vibrant east district. We visited this place based on the reviews we had read online and although the pizzas are deliciously fresh with thin crust and tasty toppings, we were slightly taken aback by the restaurant's décor. A bit too "hipster" for our liking with tons of graffiti, political propaganda and anti-fascism messages... More

Upon recommendation we came to the restaurant only to have one of the worst dinners we had in Berlin. The place is packed: especially at rush hour, but we managed to be seated at a table. The waiters were very rude, spoke no English, and dismissive. We ordered 4 pizzas. After the 30 minute mark, we asked out waiter about... More

Went on a Friday evening, place was packed out. Ended up sharing a table with a couple of other customers. The pizza was excellent, fresh with many choices of toppings. Various local and other bottled and draught beers are available, service was quick and efficient given that it was busy. Not the place for a no rush relaxing meal but... More

Huge size, lots of different options, fresh stone baked. Give you chilli oil as standard. Always absolutely jam-packed! This place knows they do pizza well and they have a great reputation for it! Hats off. Come here if you need a decent pizza fix!

Had a great Capriciosa that was more than big enough for one person. Staff were busy, and we were left to ourselves for most of the meal.

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighbourhood Profile
Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
