Parlamento Degli Angeli

Pizza may not be typically German, but in Berlin, it's very popular, and a vast improvement on the ubiquitous currywurst stalls. This lovely Kreuzberg Italian restaurant may well have learnt from the best Rome has to offer. Pizzas are huge, crisp discs and the chefs can be seen kneading and stretching the dough behind the counter, and the seductively dim lighting, Renaissance-style murals and vast gilded mirrors keep the decor just the right side of kitsch. If you order wine with lunch, you may find the entire afternoon has slipped by in an exceptionally pleasant way.
