Gorgonzola Club / Würgeengel, Berlin, Germany

Dresdener Str. 121, 10999 Berlin/Kreuzberg
Tel: +49.30.6156473

A bit difficult to find, this down to earth Italian restaurant is one of my all-time favourites in Berlin. The interior features cast stone walls & a wooden floor, and the restaurant has a wonderful but simple back garden during the summertime. Gorgonzola club serves classic dishes of good quality and decent prices, such as Spaghetti Amatriciana (7€) and Pizza Salsiccia (8€ large / 5€ small). The food won’t trigger fireworks on your palate, but is nevertheless of a steady, good quality. The service is straight, friendly and sometimes a bit melancholic. Like Tho Loc, this is not the place for a fancy business dinner, but well worth a visit if you are up for straight and good Italian food with friends or colleagues. Gorgonzola Club is located in the dead-end part of Dresdner Strasse, just behind the incredibly ugly 70’s concrete high-rise at Kottbusser Tor.
