This is a very nice Italian restaurant, in an area that doesn't offer too many options that are not chains, fast food and tourist traps. This isn't a common place, but not too fancy either, so pretty easy going.I can recommend anything with veal or lamb.It has a second story, in case you need privacy for a small event.If you're a big table, better reserve.
They were not the friendliest people. The host first told us there was no tables. When we told him that we had reservations, the host barely looked at the list and said we didn't have reservations. It wasn't until we mentioned which hotel we were staying at and how the hotel called for us for the reservations that magically a table opened up and we would only have to wait five minutes. The food was very good. However for the amount of money it cost, I wouldn't go back for the negative attitude the people who work there have.
It has been a while since last time I was here in Berlin. (6 months to be exact) I wish I could come here more often than twice a year. But one thing left a great test of Berlin, and it was Essenza! I was so happy to see the place is still here and more importantly that the service and food is always the same, (not sure what to write here, wow, amazing, omg...) but I bet you get the point. It's good! I started with a nice African pinot and got one of my favorites appetizer, the burrata cheese with heirloom tomatoes. (I usually don't take images when at dinner, but I did make one picture). The main course, oh the main course; spaghetti with fresh marinara souce, with basil and heirloom tomatoes. Yes, it is the best spaghetti I eat so far on all my travels. It has it all! Presentation, smell and of course the taste!  I wish I could get delivery to LA. Anyway, for me, it's a must when in Berlin, and I hope if you read this review and you happen to be here, GO IN and enjoy life ;)
