Description: The restaurant La Capannina has the goal to bring the true Italian high quality cuisine in the heart of Sofia, thanks to the selection of raw materials imported and selected from Italy and a chef with many years of experience maturated directly in Tuscany. We offer traditional Italian dishes revisited with a more modern touch in order to provide the right mix between taste and lightness.

“Elegant Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

La Capannina is a very elegant Italian restaurant in the center of Sofia, just next door to the Radisson Blu hotel. A terrace was just added to the restaurant from which there will be a lovely view on the most beautiful square in Sofia. The room itself is quite small but very nicely decorated in a classic style, there are lot of bottles of wines on display and a very big choice of wines for the connaisseurs. The service is very nice, without being too much on your head. For the food, I didn't find it outstanding but maybe this is due to the choice of dishes we made. My starter of fresh artichokes was not at all what I expected, it was shredded artichokes with some shavings of parmesan and I didn't like it so much, the lasagnes were not the best we had, not served warm enough and not enough sauce. The atmosphere was lovely and we had a pleasant evening but we had a shock when we saw the bill, it was very expensive by Sofia's standard so be a little careful when you go there, expect easily one hundred levas for two without desserts or coffees.

“This is really the best place to beautiful food and great wines in Sofia.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

The food is delicious and the wines are great. Try Enira Reserva: top Bulgarian wine.
The staff is very attentive and is it a nice charming place to have lunch or diner. They have a great choice of dolces also !
The restaurant is very convenient located in the centre next to Radisson Blu Hotel. It is the best place I know in Sofia and had a beautiful lunch, diner and lunch on two consecutive days.

We had an enjoyable evening in this cosy restaurant. The food was good, service certainly pleasant. A place to go when visiting Sofia. The Italian flair is tangible.
