A board with cheese and sausage and a good red wine – what more does a person need. In viticulture there are both.
A few years ago we visited the “Beef or not to Beef” in Schöneberg and never returned. The prices were salted for the lust of the flesh.
Now owner Giacomo Mannucci has switched and transformed the restaurant into a wine bar under a new name. The facility with almost 40 seats is reserved, modern and yet comfortable. The guests have to load the menu onto their mobile phone using a QR code, which is good for those who have glasses with them. Here, the Italian and international wines are the star, the dishes the accompanying music. The wines by the glass (0.1 l) range between 5 and 10 euros, the bottles from 29 euros with a clear upward trend.
This goes well with the cheese selection with chutney and peanut brittle (17 euros), Fiocco di Parma ham (culatello) with dark bread and red-eye mayonnaise (14.50 euros) or the board with mixed starters (26 euros).
We choose the board and are very enthusiastic. The selection is large, as is the portion. Three types of cheese, grilled vegetables, chutney, meat specialties and sausages. The marinated onions are particularly delicious. For the main course we chose parpadelle with wild boar ragout (16.50 euros) and were not disappointed. The homemade pasta is al dente and the ragout is well seasoned. This time we will come back.
