Al Contadino Sotto Le Stelle is a bright modern looking trattoria located on a side street but a short walk from 2 different U-Bahn stations. The menu is more modern than many such restaurants, but there are traditional dishes as well. We started with caponata and carpaccio di zucca, then had lasagna and rabbit as our mains. The dishes were... More

Out in east Berlin this restaraunt rates right up there with the best. Service was fantastic food and wine was exquisite for a great price. What else do you need? 5 min walk from nearest train station and plenty of trendy bars around there for pre dinner drinks. Worth the 15 min train ride.

It's the second time this year we visit this restaurant and once again we were blown away by the amazing cuisine and variety. The service was exceptional and they let us in right before midnight when they were closing. Can't wait to come back again and try a new dish!

This was our first night in Berlin and we wanted a relaxing meal with our son and his girlfriend. Al Contadino fit the bill perfectly. We had three different starters between the four of us and all were delicious. Our four different mains were equally tasty. Finally we shared two sorbet desserts. We also had a bottle of wine, sparkling... More

Went there with nine people. Seated without fuss. Looks like we made it in before the crowd as it did not take long to fill up (and it's a good sized restaurant). Great staff who seemed to enjoy what they were doing, which was to sell the best of Italian ingredients. Everything was superb, including the wines (the free glass... More

We went here upon the hotel's recommendation. Very poor choice! Salad and service were good but it went downhill from there. Main dishes were veal stuffed ravioli that looked and tasted like salty dog food. Awful! My spouse ordered a risotto with sausage and chanterelles. Again it was awful! We left over the food and asked for a check. The... More

We ended up here as the restaurant we planned to go to was no longer open. The service was mediocre at best - not so pleasant. The food was very good - wines by the glass were fine. Would not serve tap water and charged 6.75 euros for a bottle of still which is insane. Thus the lower star rating... More

It's great to return! Excellent carpaccio of artichokes as a starter and really special rabbit as main course. Accompanied with bottle of Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore, what a great combination! Perfetto, Grazia!!!

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
