Dare I say I'm looking forward to February? Berlin does its best to cheer everybody up in that short dark month, perhaps as a reward for getting through January.

Muret la Barba

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

This is two Italian restaurants in a row we've reported on, but this one is too lovely to keep to ourselves... Muret la Barba brings great joy: a simple, autenthic, delicious Italian restaurant and wine bar near the Miniloft apartments, with a huge wine selection, most of which can also be ordered by the glass.
