TISK is an old German word for table. The menu consists of tried and tested recipes from the region, which are presented in a new guise. You can either have a seat at one of the tables or at the long counter. From a small bite to a 3- or 5-course menu, the menu is wide-ranging and offers something for every appetite in a familiar atmosphere. They also do have an in-house TISK FARM and use self-harvested vegetables and herbs, so it can't get more regional and seasonal than this! In summer, they also create delicious draught spritzers and lemonades. The philosophy behind the "TISK Speisekneipe" combines the qualities of a modern restaurant with those of a Berlin corner pub.

This Neuköllner pizzeria serves Berlin‘s best sourdough pizza. For the Gazzo only honest, good and regional products are used. The organic flour comes from Brandenburg, the buffalo burrata from Paolella from Brandenburg, the ham and the salsiccia from the Swabian-Hallow pig. But because this is still Italian, the olive oil, Parmesan cheese and tomatoes for the sauce come from Italy and you can taste it. At first glance, the sourdough pizzas look like the Neapolitan version. But the sourdough makes the pizzas much more digestible, especially for people with wheat intolerance. You can feel or taste the difference at the latest when you bite into the crust. It's really crispy on the outside and fluffy and soft on the inside.
