The True Italian Project

True Italian is a network that aims to preserve authentic Italian restaurants found in Berlin through its brand (registered in the Deutsches Patent und Markenamt, the German patent and trademarks office), as well as a number of other initiatives and events held throughout the year. The project is pursued by Berlin Italian Communication/Berlino Magazine, a point of reference for the Italians and all those passionate about Italy who find themselves in Berlin. True Italian is made up of all the ambassadors of Italian cuisine who, starting from the product selection, show their passion for spreading the culture of “good eating”. When we talk about True Italian, not only do we focus on the chef/owner’s nationality but also on their approach to food. Creativity in the recipes and high-quality ingredients: these are the key focus points for True Italian restaurants.
