i ate here a few years ago. Since I'm not from Berlin - or Germany at all - I'm not very often in the neighbourhood. I've visited Berlin last week with my boyfriend and wanted to eat at Santa Maria again, because we ate like a king and queen there! Unfortunately all the tables and the bar were taken. Well, I guess that says it all. The food is great! If you want to eat here, you have to be on time to get a table.
