"Proper" Italian food - no pizza

Varied authentic home cooked Italian food. Prompt service. Attentive staff. Most expensive place I went in Plovdiv. Ate here three times. Diverse drinks, good wine selection and beers. There is outdoor seating too and blankets if it is cool - nice touch. There was live music one night... read more

Make sure to reserve, else you might be in for a disappointment! They serve high quality fish, very good meat and even biological products like cheeses. With these good ingredients they create robust dishes. Combine this with a good choice of Bulgarian and international wines and you are in for a great evening. The service is ok, the atmosphere is...

I live near the restaurant and it's my first choice for eating out. I can easily say it's the best in town as the cuisine is contemporary and masterchef-like. Anything I've ever tried has always been impressive and delicious.

Visited this restaurant with my partner twice in the last two weeks, also with colleagues. OMG, great service and really friendly staff. The food is excellent, breads are just fab, try the blue cheese and walnut bread, hot and served in a paper bag, great touch. Chicken fillet with Tuscan salad is also my recommendation, this has to be the... More

Excellent food, great selection of wines and the duck pate is to die for. Service was pretty good as well, the staff is pleasant and nice. A Must see in Plovdiv and to be sure you get a table, call for reservation in advance. The place is busy.

The food was ok, but not for the price. I had porkchop which was good, but then again how difficult is it to cook a pork chop and not bugger it up? My wife had salmon, the grilled asparagus was grilled to death, cremated in fact and the salmon had some gung poured all over it, we are still unsure... More

This restaurant had been highly recommended by our guide. Reservations were made and off we went. Initial service was quite good, drinks and meal served quickly and efficiently. The meals were excellent, but that was about the last time we saw our waiter. The restaurant was busy, but there were more than enough staff available. Most other tables appeared to... More

Our landlord recommended this restaurant which he said was a bit more expensive than others in Plovdiv. Let me first state that we did not find it expensive at all. The quality of the food was excellent. We ordered Bulgarian dishes based on the recommandation of our waiter. We were not disappointed by this. He also suggested a Bulgarian rose... More
