Il Giradischi

Hidden Berlin Instagram blog (13 October 2015)

The name means ‘record player’ in Italian – and stepping inside, it’s clear this is more than an attempt to win ‘cool points’ in the hippest city on the planet. No, judging by the album covers plastered to every surface and records crammed into nooks and crannies, Il Giradischi knows its stuff on the music scene. And its pizzas? Well. They hit the right notes. Fluffy bases with a ringing crunch and perfectly calculated harmonies of rich tomato and gooey cheese make these taste suspiciously like the real deal. At €7-9 for most pizzas, it’s a little pricier than other nearby Italians – but with its intriguing flavour combinations, Il Giradischi dances to the tune of quality and originality. The stand-out item? Probably the Patatona. Yep. A potato-covered pizza. Satisfyingly savoury, the rosemary flavour adds a mouth-watering melody to this surprise contender for number one. Pizza places are hardly a rarity in Berlin. But Il Giradischi’s originality, know-how and all-round coolness mean it definitely strikes a chord.
