Really impressed by this place. Didn’t think it’s possible to find products in Sofia to make dishes like in Italy. Perfect food, delicious, amazing wines. Strong recommendations.

I have just come back from spending 6 days in Sofia and ate three times in this restaurant. Ridiculously good Italian food and wine. The waiters are friendly and knowledgeable.

This restaurant has arguably the absolute best location in Sofia, a clear view of the Alexander Nevski church and the National Assembly House. The servers are extremely professional and the interior is small, yet very cosy. Here’s the thing, the prices are ridiculously high, but...the food is ridiculously good! If you have the buck, go there for a close to orgasmic blend of Italian goodness. For me... every dime is worth it!More

Over several years it remains as one if not the best restaurant in Sofia. Perfect food, great wine choice

Went for lunch having had dinner the night before. Took great interest in the food and a really good wine list. I started with the octopus and then had the seafood pasta. Cooked well and beautifully presented with a muse bouche to start with. Would...go againMore

Thin crust Pizza with mushrooms yummy, pasta gnocchi with pesto & Gorgonzola light & Delicious, filet mignonette...with pepper tumeric cream delicious - unique. Very very reasonably priced. You must go here!!!More

Great choice of food, nice ambience and perfect location. Pasta is not perfect for Italians but acceptable, good wines and beers too. Easy to get there, personnel friendly and nice to meet,

Been here for lunch with my family and the food was tasty, the level of service was adequate. We had from pasta to salad to turkey, and everything was really good. The ambient is pleasant especially in the summertime.

The restaurant placed in one of the best locations in town. You can see the Cathedral of Alexander N. and you can walk to Cerdika after you dinner. The booking is always mandatory for this restaurant as there are no many tables. There you can...have good pasta pure Italian Al dente so be prepared if you are not familiar. The fokaccia is awesome and they serve it as starter so you will enjoy it for sure. The wine list is not big but you can ask for some good BG wines from the Thracian Valley. Keep in mind that the desert are also good. Try milfeig with fresh pastry cream and cream roles with apples and cinnamon. At the end with your espresso you can have original Italian Biscoti and Floretes with honey and almonds. The prices are above average however the fresh imported ingredients can give you a true Italian dinner. So if you are true Italian foody give it a try.More
