Had a lite meal here. Food and restaurant were 5 stars for sure. Wifi rated 1 to 2 stars because it was down most of the time. I therefore put overall rating at 4 stars.

I wish I have discovered this restaurant long time ago. Situated in the very hear of Tirana it has an atmosphere that remind of an old Italian trattoria, warm, cosy and colourful. The staff is polite and efficient. The fish soup is simply amazing an it has become my number one fish soup in Tirana. A more than decent plate... More

Juvenilja is a nice restaurant, looking small from the outside but quite larger as soon as you step in. The head waiter is the same guy since 11 years ago when we first visited this restaurant. The place hasn't changed this last decade and you know what, why changing a winning formula? The menu has traditional dishes beside the usual... More

During my recent week-long stay in Tirana, I ate at this restaurant four times. The menu is diverse enough to offer something for everyone or enough variety for the repeat customer. The pizzas are excellent, the pasta good, the salads at this time of year perfect. Our waiter (we had the same one all four times) got to know us... More

Nice atmosphere and service. Their focaccia is amazing! Be sure to order it with your meal. Had the Arabiata pasta and it was a little more water than usual. The pizza is also very good.

If I wrote down one word for every time I've eaten in this restaurant I could complete a poetry book. I have been a customer of Juvenilja a.k.a. The Old Juvenilja for more than 15 years and I have not even once left unsatisfied. Every time I go there I feel like I'm visiting my family because they are very... More

Very good food, very good selection, incredibly reasonable prices. My wife, son, and I had a wonderful meal for less than $50. The setting is classy, the staff were friendly and quick. Their suggestions for dinner were good. The fish choices were excellent. Try the octopus carpaccio. I had never had it and it was delicious. I also had the... More
