San Marco

Hidden Berlin Facebook and Instagram feeds (15 April 2016)

Greifswalder Straße perhaps isn’t the first place you’d think of for a romantic pizza date… but among the casinos, Spätis and electrical stores, one building’s windows lay bursting with foliage and the curious glow of candlelight. Behind the leaves? San Marco pizzeria and seafood restaurant. Stepping into this quirkily rustic setting – think part-nautical, part-Aladdin’s Cave – you could easily be in one of Berlin’s pricier restaurant hotspots. Except most pizza and pasta dishes are under €10 (even less if they’ve got a 40% off deal on) and there’s a distinct lack of touristy chatter. Don’t worry, though… from English-speaking staff to a menu that at least roughly translates what you’re eating (we’ll let you decide what pizza with “tomato sauce, cheese, tuna and bulbs” is…) ordering up an Italian feast here is blissfully simple. And the food itself? Well, the luxuriously flavoured stone-baked pizzas left us with full bellies and smiling faces. Plus if all that isn’t a good enough reason to get the M4 here from Alexanderplatz… they’ll even throw in a free shot of Amaretto or Grappa after your meal. Prost! #PrenzlauerBerg #Greifswalderstrasse #Pizza #Pizzeria #Italian #ItalianFood #Pasta #ItalianRestaurant #FoodPorn #Berlin #HiddenBerlin #Lecker #SanMarco #Dinner #ItalianNight #BerlinFood #Berlinstagram #IgersBerlin
