The best pasta in town! My favourite is Boscaiola. Loved the atmosphere and the interior design. My favourite place for 3 years already.

RESTAURANT'S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2017 via mobile

A little pricey if you just look at the menu. But very much worth it considering the very good food, great ambiance and excellent service. Dan was a very attentive waiter. I love that I can get top notch service in Moldova in a casual relaxed paced, not that common. I prefer a casual place where you can relax and... More

Me and my husband are coming each weekend in this place for breakfast. We enjoy the quite atmosphere and their menu. The prices are very good for the value they offer, I can say even cheap. They have raw vegan and organic food that I really love. If u are here for breakfast try the "ochiuri cu rosii si grissini"... More

Most interesting chain, really putting much effort in appearing as authentic as possible. From thin crispy pizzas to the absence of pineapple pizza. Seems a place popular for dates and couples. Only minus is that for an Italian cafe to serve Austrian Coffe Julius Meinl. I pointed it out joking and got as an apology a 50 lei discount card... More

I've been here close to 100 times for lunch and it is perfect for that. They have a lunch menu which offers you incredible value! For only 5 euros you get a full 3 meal. A soup, a salad/entree, a main and tea/wine/juice. And the food tastes great most of the time. I did have a few times when my... More

This has to be the best restaurant in Moldova. Great food, great service and an amazing atmosphere. Oh, and not to mention their delivery service which is always on time, if not way earlier! 5/5, would recommend to anyone.

Served pasta with chicken. Chicken was raw, pasta sauce was liquid and no condiments added. The glass I received was dirty. I would not recommend. And the Cheesecake... please stop producing it! It is horrible. It was like eating a cow in a salt mine. It has nothing in common with western cheesecake. Try cook something traditional to Moldavia not... More
