What you’re getting: Pizza Incredibile
Always packed, and perpetually hectic, this sprawling spot at the top of a strange little hill where Mitte meets Prenzlauer Berg has been a favorite for years. Its waiters have been known to be surly as hell, but the food is good enough that you won’t care. The unofficial favorite is the Pizza Incredibile, topped with Parmesan, buffalo mozzarella, walnuts, and two kinds of thin-cut dried sausage.
What you’re getting: Weisse pizza
Modeled after traditional establishments in that mountainous part of Italy the Italians call Alto Adige and the Germans call South Tyrol, Gasthaus Figl is a cross between a German guesthouse and an Italian pizzeria; that is to say, both cozy and raucous, with pizzas that are a bit heavier and heartier than your average Italian thin crust. The “Marinara Klassisch” pizza will satisfy those after familiarity, but the “Weisse” or white pizza has a wonderful savory mix of taleggio cheese, chard, cherry tomatoes, and pine nuts.
