Editor’s note: Sironi La Pizza will be open for dining again soon – until then you can order their pizza and ice cream for pickup or delivery. The bakery next door is open for the fundamentals too!
Alfredo Sironi has influenced the Berlin bread scene like few others, so we’ll forgive the long wait for him to open his first pizzeria, Sironi la Pizza. The place itself reminds you of an airy reception hall and is brought to life by the warmth of the service. To start, you’ll find a basket of famous Sironi sourdough bread on your table before you get stuck into the starters: a creamy burrata with anchovies and thin chickpea dough pancakes. As for the pizzas, the different varieties come either on a traditional wheat base or a spelt flour version. Toppings aren’t customizable, but you won’t mind: the Wheat Calzone comes with a delightfully bready base and lighter toppings while the Passatello with matured Parmigiano, lemon, mushrooms and rocket makes for a real treat. These are not your classic Neapolitan pizzas, but that’s what makes them excitingly different. To finish, don’t miss out on the homemade pistachio and hazelnut ice cream (currently available to take away) and whilst you’re here try the new Sironi bakery right next door.
