This is my favourite Italian in Berlin Mitte. I am coming here on a regular basis. Mädchenitaliener (Facebook) means in English something like “Italian for girls”. Somehow it´s true because usually I go here with my (girl) friends, It´s one of our favourite spots for a nice dinner in Mitte. Located on Alte Schönhauser Straße the location is very central. The interior is basic but has some highlights such as the huge painting of a an alpine scene with a Dackel (German = Wiener Dog) in the middle. You will find the Dackel on other details as well (we bought a voucher once and it had the Dackel picture as well). I find Wiener Dogs really cute :)!
The food at Mädchenitaliener
The food at Mädchenitaliener is really great! The antipasti plate is a must. It can be easily shared with 3-4 people and contains different kind of cheeses, rocket salad, capers, salami, ham, grapes and figues. As a main dish I can absolutely recommend the Tagliatelle con Fico which contains fresh figues, salami with fennel, poppy seed and a redwine based sauce. So good! The house wine is pretty good too and cheap. I never made it to the dessert because I was always too full. Next time…
The service in my opinion leaves room for improvement. The waiters often don´t pay attention or you have to wait long until they check back on you (once we had to ask twice to get the bill).
Prices are Mitte oriented but still affordable for regular visits.
