Located in Kreuzberg, just a short walk from Hermannplatz, Masaniello is a truly authentic Napolese pizzeria joint. The owners, chefs and much of the produce used in the restaurant have all come from Naples, bringing the UNESCO ‘intangible’ status and traditional pizza recipes with them. The menu is a range of Italian treats, including pasta, daily specials, pizza and antipasti. However, the one dish to try is, of course, the pizza, prepared in an authentic Neapolitan style. The place fills up fast on the weekends, so to avoid missing out, booking a table in advance is recommended.
