The thought of turning an old laundrette into an Italian restaurant is one that wouldn’t enter into, let alone take shape, in most people’s minds, but it is exactly this strange combination that makes Lavanderia Vecchia a true one-of-a-kind. Laundry in the form of embroidered tea towels hang from every available space, and combined with the industrial pipes and whitewashed brick walls, it does feel a little like you’ve entered an authentically rustic Italian kitchen. Mismatched and welcoming, this unconventional restaurant isn’t all about style over substance and thankfully features a hearty menu of tasty Italian cuisine. The preset menu comprises ten taster starters, two main courses, dessert, coffee and half a bottle of wine per person all for a reasonable €45. Draw up a chair and watch the open kitchen throw numerous oils in the pan as you sample the finest Italian in Berlin.
