Italian cuisine is one of the most appreciated cuisines in the world: thanks to its simple and healthy ingredients it can also conquer those who are on a vegan diet. So just get ready for the 72 hours event: basically it will be a tasting tour where you could discover real Italian restaurants in Berlin and their specialties; it will involve the whole Berlin and you will have the chance to taste Italian food specialties with tasty wines, Amaro cocktail or sometimes also Lavazza espresso (depending on the bar/restaurant). In order to facilitate your tasting tour, we have created the 72 hours True Italian map: it is a metro map that indicates the location of every restaurant participating in the event.



72 hrs True Italian Map 23.09.

How to participate? It’s quite simple: you only have to go to a restaurant participating in the event and order the True Italian specialty. Every restaurant has its own specialty consisting of a food specialty matched with a glass of wine, an amaro Lucano cocktail or a non-alcoholic drink, furthermore your 6€ can also include an Espresso (only in restaurants serving Lavazza). During the 72 hours True Italian event restaurants will also offer their usual menu to fully satisfy your appetite.

Check the map (click on it) to discover all restaurants specialties:  the tasting tour will involve all Berlin districts. On the map (download it here) you could find all restaurants, bars, wineries and bakeries participating in the event, their addresses, their opening times and their True Italian specialty.

Italian cuisine is versatile and it is open to different interpretations, but there are many Italian restaurants in Berlin that have nothing to do with Italian cuisine: you only need to take a look at menus to find spelling errors, wrong recipes and not to mention cooking videos that explain how to make “pasta risottata”. Anyway in Berlin there are people who work hard everyday to serve authentic Italian cuisine: they are Italian people who arrived in Berlin and have become taste ambassadors, or simply German and foreign people who love Bel Paese culinary tradition and respect it; they only use quality ingredients directly coming from Italy or they buy them from trusted suppliers. Products respect and care of ingredients quality: these are the key words of all True Italian restaurants.

    Hi guys, when you designed the map did you assume that everybody has a A3 printer at home to print it out? Or do you expect visitors to print out 4 A4 pages and glue them together so they can read the text? Sorry, but this is not very user friendly 🙁 Best regards, Branko.
