I got a recommendation of this restaurant through a city guide, and it's totally worthy to taste it!! Very affordable price, nice flavor and kind staff, must try in Sarajevo

A bit on the small and salty side. Nice smoky flavor. Our waiter looked a bit annoyed and forgot parts of our order. I understand, the place gets really crowded, since it is located on the most famous Baščaršija part of the town, but still....More

巴爾幹半島國家旅行16天,吃過無數家的Cevapi,而Petica Cevabzinica無疑是最好吃的(非常多汁美味). 這家餐廳非常好找,循著烤肉的煙味就能看見它。餐廳服務員也很熱情。 Traveled in Balkans countries and had many Cevapi in different places, there is no doubt the Petica Cevabzinica is the best of the best. The meat is super juicy and tasty; even now I still remember and miss the taste. Yum yum!

Our host recommended this place and said it was where all the locals eat. He also said we should order the Cevapi. Great location in the old town, great service and great cervapi. Highly recommend!

Everything is perfect, food is always fresh & delicious. Every time I went, it was the same quality and food plate size. I like the atmosphere and ladies who are wearing traditional Bosnian clothing. They are nice, polite and friendly.

These are the best cevapi in the world. Highly recommend eating here. If you visit Sarajevo and don’t try the cevapi here, you seriously missed out on a life changing experience. Also make sure to get kajmak and a jogurt with your cevapi.

Same for me - I was there as a tourist and didn't appreciate it that much so I would not recommend it for New Year's Eve!
