When the Wall came down in 1989, travel-hungry East Germans flocked to Italy, while entrepreneurial Italian restauranteurs rushed to set up shop in East Germany. One of these pioneers was Il pane e le rose which settled in the middle of the Wild East, close to Volkspark Friedrichshain. The simple and elegant decor and play on the great past of Italian cinema have lent the restaurant a reputation as being a meeting place for "intellectuals". The quality of the food is high and only the freshest ingredients are used. The venue is open daily from 12 p.m.
