“The best ice cream in Sofia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Ice cream is my favourite dessert, moreover living in Milano I learned what real Italian gelato means and how huge the difference is between it and the "regular" ice cream offered elsewhere. For Bulgarian standards the Confetti "gelato" is excellent, but still far from the real one.
Otherwise the place is very nice, right in the centre. It has the advantage of having a garden, service is ok, and besides all the desserts it offers some pretty decent meals and coctails, which makes it suitable either for lunch, brunch or casual dinner. The only disadvantage is that usually it is quite noisy and the music is annoying!

“very nice place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

excellent place, garden, lounge music, good selection of wine and food - what else does one need?
I didn't try the ice creams though... guess I have to go back! very soon.

“Ice cream.. THE ice cream..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

There is no other place in Sofia for ice cream such as Confetti. Great variety of tastes and if you visit in summer, it would take you 15-odd minutes to pick some. However, do not miss all other desserts and supposing you opt for more serious meal, try the fish. I definately recommend this gelateria to every glutton. And not only!

“The best ice-cream and cakes in Sofia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

If I had to express my review in one sentence it would be "Ice-cream and cakes to die for!" -

Confetti started a few years ago as a small cake-shop/ice-cream parlour and expanded to its current size. It has a lovely indoor and also outdoor area with simple modern decor. Somehow we always manage to stop by at least once a week during summer for a salad and a couple of scoops of ice-cream.

Apart from about 54 flavours of amazing homemade ice-cream (in summer) and lovely cakes, they also serve lovely thin crust pizzas and salads. You can have a coffee or opt for a refreshing home made lemonade.

The nutella cake, nociolla ice-cream, salad with grilled goat cheese and pizza diavola are our favourites.

All in all, this is the must visit place in summer. We love it, love it, love it!

“Great family restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

Mostly Italian food, but an aknowledged specialty for deserts. Dozens of cakes and super-sized ice creams.
You can easily walk out with a full, good meal for less than 10$.
Super-nice terrasse in the summer, too.

They could probably use more waiters/waitresses though, but you don't wait too much for the food so I guess it compensates.

Overall, a great restaurant for a family or on a date.
