Lonely Planet review

When Doris Burneleit opened her first restaurant in 1987, deep inside East Berlin, she’d never set foot in Italy, nor had she had any formal training as a chef. Yet she proved to be such a magician in the kitchen that even the Italian ambassador became a fan. She still pampers the cognoscenti in artistic country-style digs. The malfatti (cheese and spinach dumplings) are a speciality.
