Al Contadino Sotto Le Stelle

Not only is 'Al Contadino Sotto Le Stelle' one of my favorite restaurants here in Berlin. 
Marjita(?), our waitress of the night, offered us incredibly good tasting red wine: 
But let's start at the beginning.
The Italian restaurant 'Al Contadino sotto le stelle' is located on Auguststrasse 36 in 10119  Berlin Mitte.
You'll find homemade pasta, veil, rabbit, fish, tartufo, prosciutto etc on the menu; 
solid Italian cuisine that is both, rustic and fine, at the same time.
'Al Contadino' is not a cheap restaurant. It's rather a restaurant where to go on a date.

Me and my partner went there for our anniversary and had:

  • Prosciutto with fruit mustard
  • Entrecote with truffle
  • Homemade Chestnut-flour Tagliatelle with veil liver, apple and truffle oil
  • Warm chocolate-hazelnut cake with vanilla ice cream.

Sadly they had to move out of their original venue which was even more cosy and romantic.
Their new location is a little less intimate and on our last visit we discovered that the tables in the front are cramped.
But sitting in the back of the restaurant can be quite loud and busy with waiters rushing past. 
Still it is one of my favorite restaurants. 
The food is excellent and the service is very friendly and knowledgeable.

PS: The name of the restaurant means 'The Farmer Underneath The Starry Sky'.
