3. Lavanderia Vecchia Flughafenstr. 46, Berlin, 12053 (Neukoln)

Bathed in white light and decked in white cloth from table to ceiling, this Neukolln spot transformed completely when the sun goes down with neon blue and purple lighting for two completely different eating experiences. Lavanderia Vecchia's Italian menus change every week -- at lunch meals are ordered a la cart, and at dinner, the lucky patrons who managed to score reservations pay around 60 Euros to have their four courses and a half bottle of wine chosen for them.

This Mitte Italian spot is well known for being a stupendous pizza spot, and the the walls of this cavernous resto are covered in graffiti, making for a unique environment for sure.

6. Villa di Wow Ohlauer Str. 38, Berlin, 10999 (Kreuzberg)

The brightly colored signage (lit neon pink at night) and the pink door almost demand you enter Villa di Wow and you’ll be glad you did. They sell New York-style pizza by the slice and it’s incredible. You can also get 28cm pizzas or the whole 50cm pizza if you’re feeding an army.
