“Junk food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Reading the menu everything seems to be ok. In fact, it's not. Simply because the chief seems to ignore the existence of different spices and herbs. The raw cooking material is looking great, but the taste is near to the zero. It could be a problem of the chief himself, but it's also a problem for the management. Otherwise, the place (I mean the restaurant-pizzeria located Tsar Chichman Street in Sofia, part of the chain of restaurants Mamma Mia), is average but overvisited mainly by young people who espect to stay in a very well-known restaurant for no money. In fact they should be a little be disapointed because the prices are not so low, especially the drinks. On my opinion, if you really want to eat a pizza or pasta, better chhose another place - there it will be for sure less expensive and the food may be more tasty.

“Fantastic location and great food for a reasonable price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We ate here on three occasions and the food was lovely. Service was good and easy going, we had waitresses that could speak quite good English and were able to suggest several local dishes. Toilets are very close by and they were reasonably clean.The menu was a mix of traditional and Italian. I tried a pork, salmon and pasta dish over the three nights and each dish was very tasty and satisfying. The best part of this restaurant is the relaxing outdoor eating area that gives you a beautiful view of the stunning cathedral. Overall a very pleasant experience.
