“"A real find"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

After a long day spent travelling my wife and myself were looking forward to having dinner in our hotel - but were quickly disappointed to find out that the only restaurant had been completely given over to a large tour group.

So, not yet acquainted with our surroundings, we had no choice but to seek sustenance elsewhere and after a leisurely 10 minute stroll stumbled across the Pieciolinia Smakow.

It turned out to be a real piece of good luck. Immediately upon entering we were warmly welcomed and shown to a lovely table for two next to a window overlooking the street, then duly handed the menus for our perusal. At our leisure we eventually chose warm garlic bread, salmon soup with onions, tomatoes and parsley, bread with basil and main courses of fried sole served with french fries, boiled vegetables in jus comprising of carrots, broccoli and cauliflower.

To accompany the dinner we selected an excellent bottle of Italian dry white wine and finished off with an expresso coffee.

The food was beautifully cooked and presented, although we both thought the sole was a little lacking in flavour. It was, however, the first class service that made the meal as the very friendly and courteous waiter was excellent. He spoke very good English and informed us that he had spent 6 years working in Wales. He is no doubt a great asset to the restaurant.

To sum up, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and considered the cost of 171.00 euros plus a gratuity really superb value for money.

In our opinion a visit is highly recommended.

“Very very good food at excellent price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

My father and I have just visited krakow and went to pieciolinia smakow as it had been recommended to us by some friends who had visited recently. Their recommendation was spot on. The gentleman who served us was attentive, spoke good English and very welcoming. We both had the sirloin steak, cooked to perfection and the best steak either of us have had in years! We only had the 2 steaks and a bottle of wine but the price came to about £34 in total.
Definitely recommended you won't be disappointed!

“Service with a smile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

We dined here last Thursday for my 50th birthday and loved it so much we returned last night. The staff are polite, attentive and friendly and the food is delicious - the cream of broccoli soup followed by the salmon with lime sauce, potato gratin and spinach with garlic was incredible. Our apartment was opposite, which was fortunate because otherwise we may not have discovered this little gem. Following dinner here, cross the road to the 'Wodka' bar - the combination of these two places makes the perfect night out.

“Go here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

I don't know why they are slamming busy. Everything was delicious from the steak with peppercorn sauce to the most amazing ham, cheese and rosemary dumplings. They weren't gummy they were so flavorful and pillowy. The desserts were thoughtful, not overdone but tasty and the waiter was an absolute delight. he was so accommodating fun and kind. Their house wine is delicious also.
