Standard—Serious PizzaThere may be plenty of pizza in Berlin, but excellent Neapolitan pizza is another matter entirely, so thank heavens for swanky Standard pizza in Mitte. It's anything but standard with its blend of expertly sourced ingredients (the vegetables come from local farms; the tomatoes and cheeses come from specific Italian brands for added authenticity), a 4,400-pound oven custom-made in Naples, and an impressive dedication to perfecting the Neapolitan art of the thick but tender crust. As well as several regular pizza options, the restaurant usually offers a couple of daily specials with seasonal ingredients and a few salads and desserts, including a memorable tiramisu. The biggest surprise about the whole enterprise? An Austrian runs it.
