Standard was Berlin’s first really good Italian pizza place and we still consider it one of the best. The pizzas are Neapolitan-style and have been certified authentic by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, Naples’ official pizza authority (yes, this is a real thing and also our dream job). The crust is thick and fluffy, the tomatoes and mozzarella are from Italy, and the toppings are simple and traditional. There’s a big wine menu too and you never have to wait long for a table.
