18th – 21st September
Almost 60 Italian restaurants, four days, one single price of 7€: it is the long-awaited fourth edition of the 72 hrs True Italian Food.
Aubergine parmigiana, caponata, pasta all’Amatriciana, pasta alla carbonara, homemade gnocchi and ravioli, creamy salted codfish, Sarde in saor (sweet and sour sardines), boar meatballs, risotto with wild mushrooms and taleggio cheese, tagliatelle ricotta and ‘nduja, porchetta (savoury, fatty and moist boneless pork roast), tigelle, selection of Italian cold cuts and cheeses, panuozzo, Bagna Càuda (warm dip typical of Piedmont), Sicilian cannoli, pistachio cream, and much more: a big party with the tastes of the true italian cuisine is about to take over Berlin. Starting on Wednesday, September 18th until Saturday, September 21st, almost 60 Italian restaurants, pizzerias, wine bars and cafès will offer their own specialities to give to all the Berliners a tour of the best true Italian tastes. Anywhere you go, the price is going to be the same: 7€ for a glass of tasty wine, a Spritz, a beer or a soft drink (depending on the restaurant) and a small portion of the speciality of the restaurant. Our goal is to spread the Italian culinary culture abroad, with a focus on special dishes that are not so well known outside of Italy.
The 72 hrs True Italian Food event
In order to try one of the 60 different combinations of specialities in our True Italian restaurants, the only thing you have to do is going to one of them, between Thursday and Sunday, and order the True Italian speciality. All these places will also offer their regular menu dishes. Every client will have the chance to choose to stay and try something else or switch to another True Italian restaurant. The event is organized by Berlin Italian Communication within the project True Italian.
In order to facilitate the tasting tour, we created the 72 hrs True Italian Food map: a metro map that indicates the location of every place participating in the event. It will allow you to check all the restaurants’ addresses, as well as their opening times and their True Italian speciality. The map will be available both as a online PDF file and as a flyer in all the participating restaurants or at the True Italian office in Gryphiusstr. 23, Berlin Friedrichshain.
