Zia Maria (Berlin)

You're in Berlin. So many Italian restaurants, so many pizzerias, so difficult to choose. Well, if you happen to find yourself in Prenzlauerberg, I strongly recommend this place. Thin crispy Roman pizzas with a range of choices when it comes to toppings. Sold by the slice, the menu is neatly divided into meats, seafood and vegetarian pizzas. With slices ranging from 1.50 to 3.50, you would usually eat 2 to 3 slices for a meal as they’re quite large. They also have 4 different salads that come with the most amazing rosemary flatbread. They also have a child- and waistline-friendly fruity tiramisu that’s caffeine and alcohol free with the custard as a mixture of mascarpone and yoghurt. Havent tried, but it’s intriguing.
They have two branches in Prenzlauerberg. It's a very casual restaurant with simple decor and a relaxed atmosphere. They sometimes do art exhibitions there or have live music, altogether with long wooden tables that you share with others and a good pizza, it's a good place for a meal.

The only complaint I have is that sometimes it takes them half a day to bring you your pizza. The pizza dough's already made, there's a wood-fire oven, and there are only three tables of clients, just what the hell are those pizzaioli ("pizza chef" in italian) doing there? Tall blonde German men in aprons just standing there looking pretty, I tell you.

But if you're in Berlin - this is the place for authentic Roman pizzas.
