An office block plus shopping mall is not the obvious place for a great evening out. But La Pastaria in the new Sopharma Building on Dragan Tzankov Blvd defied all expectations.
From time to time I come to this restaurant for lunch. They offer a 'specials of the day' menu which is always good value and worth looking at. This evening's was absolutely delicious. For me mushroom, parsley and garlic breaded balls with a mustard and mayonnaise dip, followed by a particularly good spaghetti ali olio with broccoli.
La Pastaria has two other things going for it. The service is thoroughly professional. It's rare to find such well-trained staff who are both knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
Secondly an Italian folksinging duo strolling between the tables entertaining guests with great voices and good humour. I don't know whether this is a regular feature, but they were a joy. Their presence rounded off an excellent evening.
