One weekend dedicated to the tradition of the authentic Italian street food.
Arancini, fried pizza, focaccia, panuozzi, prawns with ice, salt codfish balls, “cuoppi” (cone filled with seafood, meat or vegetarian), sandwiches with “porchetta” (roasted and flavoured pork) and with octopus, tasty cream puffs and cakes combined with real Neapolitan espresso and much more… The first edition of the Italian Street Food Festival is coming to Berlin and aims to celebrate once again the best Italian culinary tradition in Berlin. The “Belpaese” doesn’t only stand out for the cities of art and its beautiful beaches but also and especially for its delicious food. This festival wants to present the Italian culinary diversity, the traditional street food that every year attracts tourists from all over the world to Italy and makes nostalgic those who had to leave it.
The first edition of the Italian Street Food Festival will be held on Saturday, 23rd and Sunday, 24th of June from 10 am to 10 pm at Osthafen (Alt Stralau 1-2, 10245 Berlin) and will involve the participation of more than 15 stands and food trucks (scroll down to discover them all!). An unavoidable event during which you can savor the most varied Italian specialties for everyone’s tastes, accompanied by DJ set and theater performances (but the entrance is for free). Like the other events organized by True Italian (the 72 hrs True Italian Food is scheduled from 27 to 30 September), this initiative aims to promote the excellence and variety of true Italian cuisine abroad.

The event will take place at Osthafen (Alt Stralau 1-2, 10245 Berlin), an exclusive location just two steps away from Treptower Park S-Bahn station. It is a large open area with a beach on the Spree, where the DJ set and two different theatre performances will be hosted and where you’ll find many tables to enjoy the specialties. The entry is for free: you just have to decide what you would like to order and enjoy the Italian atmosphere.
The True Italian project
True Italian is a network that aims to preserve authentic Italian restaurants found in Berlin through its brand (registered in the Deutsches Patent und Markenamt, the German patent and trademarks office), as well as a number of other initiatives and events held during the year. The project is pursued by Berlin Italian Communication/Berlino Magazine, a reference point for Italians and all fond of Italy in Berlin. True Italian is composed by all those representers of Italian cuisine who show their passion in spreading the culture of “good eating”, starting from the product selection. When we talk about True Italian, we don’t only focus on the chef/owner’s nationality but also on their attitude towards food. Creativity in recipes and high quality ingredients: these are the key focus points for True Italian restaurants.
