Osteria Ballarò - Berlin-Charlottenburg - Cucina Siciliana

We wish you a pleasant stay at the Osteria Ballarò

Our specialties are excellent meat and fish dishes such as veal chop, sole or loup de mer in a salt crust, precisely cooked and aromatically seasoned. Vegetarian and vegan dishes such as the popular caponata have always been part of Sicilian cuisine. For a sweet ending, we recommend our popular, homemade dolci.

We attach particular importance to our recommendations of the day.


We also offer weekly seasonal highlights, salsiccia freshly prepared by our chefs, pasta such as the specialty polpette (Mediterranean-spiced veal meatballs in tomato sauce), tender loin of veal or exquisite fish dishes such as sole or loup de mer in a salt crust.
