Bellissimo - it's in the name!
I'm glad to be writing about yet another great restaurant that I have come across on my travels. This time, it's "Bellissimo", a quaint Italian restaurant, run by Italian people, with an authentic Italian atmosphere. The food is Hungarian...just kidding, it's Italian believe it or not. And fantastic at that.
We found this little restaurant on our treck back to our hotel after walking around Berlin. We didn't want to head out too far that evening, and it was perfectly situated not too far from the Wittenbergplatz underground station. It can also be reached if you are staying not too far from Nollendorfplatz underground station too, but with a little more of a walk from here.
It was so cosy when we went inside; it immediately took away the numbness of my cold red nose, and we were greeted with a smile and a nice loud "ciao!" by the waiter, who also seemed to be the owner too. (One of those competent type that never need a pen or paper for your order, and still remember what your original order was, even after a long evening of serving several tables of customers!)
On the menu was a variety of pizzas, pastas, lasagne dishes, fish and salads. I've never seen so many choices of pasta in all its forms before! Some restaurants leave me undecided on what to eat because I find it hard to choose something I like, but here it was the opposite and there were so many dishes that I was spoilt for choice! I opted for a beef lasagne with cheese baked on the top, as well as a tomato and mozzarella salad. The lasagne was served steaming hot and the salad with some wonderful fresh basil, which has since inspired my boyfriend to use on our own salads at home!
The waiter was so friendly, and came over quickly whenever we needed something extra. We made a bit of a mess on the table by accident, and he wasn't annoyed at all! He got an extra tip because of our shame! Two meals, salad and two drinks set us back a mere 30 EUR, for what was a great evening in a small restaurant that was cosy, relaxed, friendly and completely accommodating. It deserves no less than five stars. Do visit and keep family businesses alive! [more ]
