Brot und Rosen
One of the better Italian restaurants in Berlin, Brot und Rosen is favoured by couples after a romantic dinner. In fact, ask any Berliner to recommend you a restaurant and they’ll probably suggest an Italian as over half the city’s kitchens serve delights from the Med’s back garden and the German obsession with pizza and pasta verges on the obsessive. A little out on a limb, the restaurant overlooks the tranquil Friedrichshain Volkspark. On a sunny day, light spills through the large windows and a light lunch can last a peaceful eternity. Diners sit amid pine dressers and yellow roses, beneath giant prints of Sophia Loren and other Italian goddesses and greats. The refined atmosphere is somewhat laid back and suits almost every occasion, along with the consistently good, classic Italian food.
