Innovative Italian cuisine Nov 08, 2014
Who would have thought that you’d find a very inexpensive Italian buffet-style food just 150 meters away from the famous Checkpoint Charlie? As we discovered, it is not impossible to eat cheaply and well in the centre of a big city.

We’ve come across Casa Italia whilst roaming the neighbourhood of Checkpoint Charlie. Maybe this wouldn’t have been our first choice for food (we would have rather eaten something more traditional, wink, wink, like bratwurst), but there was surprisingly not such a great choice of restaurants in the area. What really caught our attention was the price for "all you can eat buffet" - €7.90, and the enormous choice of dishes included. So we got tempted to try.

The pace was absolutely packed. Fortunately, we didn’t have to wait very long for a table as someone was just leaving. People, who kept arriving shortly after us, seemed not so lucky.

The buffet choice was gigantic – so many different pasta dishes, pizzas, salads, meat, vegetables and desert snacks that we struggled a lot not to overload our places only so we can try as many dishes as possible.

With much buffet food you can experience blandness of flavour or overcooked food. This was not a case here. All the dishes had their unique and well-balanced taste and none were overcooked or destroyed. Quite an achievement for such a busy restaurant.

We took our time to savour a little of many dishes. That also included some desert and ice-cream. We definitely didn’t walk out hungry, or wishing that we went somewhere else. A good choice indeed.

To anyone who might find themselves in this neighbourhood looking for good and not very expensive lunch or dinner, I advise to try Casa Italia.
