Due Forni Pizza Restaurant – Berlin Prenzlauer Berg

The best pizza in BerlinEver since I arrived in Berlin all of my friends, German and foreign, had been telling me to try the pizzas at Due Forni. I kind of figured that they were making a big deal out of nothing. After all, how good could pizza’s really be. How wrong I was. It took me almost a year before I went and I have to say that the place lives up to its reputation. Now Berlin is overrun by pizza joints, but these have to be some of the best pizzas in Berlin. In fact, you may find that they are among the best pizzas anywhere.

The thing is though, that this is not just any pizza joint, its also a place where tattooed punks go when they grow up. Your waiter or waitress will likely have more paint on them than the Sistine Chapel. And the bad service is legendary. I mean that. It’s not casually bad or carelessly bad. You can find shoddy service at just about any Berlin restaurant. But here they take it to a new level.

This is a place where the service is deliberately bad. They make a point of it. Perhaps its some weird anarchist thing or maybe it tells us something weird about Germans and Germany that people pay good money for bad service. But whatever it is, this is a trademark of the place.
Expect surly staff with loads of tattoos, tons of graffiti and some of the best pizzas you will eat in your life at Due Forni.

Update Jan 2014
I see it got a really nice writeup by FoodieinBerlin that also has some really great photos. But they said they couldn’t find any blog posts about the place 🙁
She also mentions Casolare, which I love, especially in summer.

    I would recommend you guys to try the pizza by Mamicamilla, in prenzalauberg. The original Neapolitan classic Margherita, at lunch time, comes with salad at 5,50 €. On Tuesday night there is the all you can eat night at 10,90 Euro. Amazing; testy, fresh, and authentic Amalfi coast atmosphere.
