There isn’t a pizza or tricolore flag in sight at this humdinger of an Italian restaurant. Da Baffi skips the cliches with its heart-achingly authentic cuisine, hailing from the Emilia region of the peninsula. Opened in 2011, this Italo-Deutsch team emphasize seasonal, first-rate ingredients and it sure proves that you get what you pay for. Everything from the baked-on-site bread to the pasta fresca melts in your mouth. And you can expect the rarest of things in Berlin, premium quality seafood, as well as a weekly changing menu. The perennial bridesmaid of Bezirke, Wedding, has never had it so good.
