Germany has so many glorious restaurants to choose between, so we’ve given a helping hand in finding the right ones.
Berlin is one of those cities you have to love, it's like a sponge of international influences, absorbing the most authentic flavours and essence of what you plant into it and rendering its own look and feel. Cecconi's is no different. The heartfelt name of this famed establishment has deep roots in Venice, where pasta is handmade, seafood is caught fresh and the best ingredients are used to curate Northern Italian cooking. And while there are several outposts across the globe, from West Hollywood to Istanbul, the tradition has remained. Located at The Store, on premises at the Soho House building, Cecconi's recreates the same beloved dishes in an open-plan kitchen with a wooden oven, while the diner's lounge is adorned in red leather booth-style seating, marble floors, soft lighting as if you were at a bistro along a quiet canal and an outside terrace to enjoy the summer months.
