I have 10 drafts of posts on file. I haven’t posted them because they are all negative reviews and I’m thinking you must be all getting fed up with me moaning and groaning about the sad state of affairs that the food scene finds itself in. But then I think, well I’ve wasted my money there so I should tell you, after all; forewarned is forearmed (don’t ask me why I have all these sayings squirlled up in my head, I seem to only be able to think with the profundity of a fortune cookie). Then again I think, Oof you need a break, you need to hear something good, a light at the end of the tunnel (there I go again).
Did I mention I am a Libra? It takes me eons to make decision. You should see me in the canned tomato isle. (At least here in Germany I save time shopping because there is so little choice.)
Ahem, so yes, decision made, this post – something positive: good pizza in Berlin. I am by no means a pizza geek like my friend over at LNDEATSNYC (on his tip, I once drove to Brixton to try the “amazing” sourdough at Franco Manca, it was very good and very far away). But I like a good pizza every couple of months, preferably washed down with a not too sweet Italian lemonade (which at Due Forni is called Lemon Soda).
And when pizza time comes round again, I like to go to Due Forni. My esteemed blogger colleagues; Luisa over at Berlin on a Platter and Margue at 13 Desserts told me I should visit their sister restaurant in Kreuzberg (Casolare) but I always end up at Due Forni because it’s so much closer. The place itself is punky and grungy, yellow sponged walls, loud rock music and sparrows swooping over your head (yes, indoors). It was hard to make out what the girl serving us was saying because she had so many piercings in her lips it was impending her speech. And don’t expect fast or friendly service because you probably won’t get it, but that seems to be part of their branding.
I prefer to go for lunch, when it’s not too busy and not too loud. Take care when ordering because some pizza combinations are spot on while others run towards dodgy; globs of Philadelphia cream cheese anyone?
Oh and in the summer, you can sit outside…
I couldn’t find any blogger reviews of this place but these guides all loved it (click on the names and it will take you to the link).
