We were walking on the boulevard Vitosha at lunch time in February and it was cold and quite windy. We noticed this restaurant while passing in front of it and being cold and hungry we decided to give it a try without expecting too much, we were pleasantly surprised. The room of the restaurant is nice, on two floors. You reach the first floor taking a large staircase and the room up is light with a view of the boulevard if you are near the window but it was quite full so we went again downstairs where we took a table in a corner. The sitting is comfortable, there are coat stands near the tables where you can hang your coat, scarf, hats that you have to wear during the winter and which can become annoying if you have to keep them with you. The waitresses are young, not specially smiling but the one who looked after us spoke good English. The menu has a good selection of salads, pasta and pizzas, there is also a menu for the sweets but we did like other people and went to the counter and choose a dessert from the selection in a big chilled glass buffet. Before that, we had both pasta which were very good and had a real authentic taste of Italian cuisine and I think that the chef is Italian. The people at the table near us had salad wich looked good and fresh and pizza which looked also good. We had good expressos with our apple pie, which had been warmed, a nice touch. We found the bill reasonable for a very good lunch and were revived to go again in the cold of Boulevard Vitosha. We didn't like this walk that much, too many beggars and obvious pickpockets, I don't think the idea to turn this main street pedestrian was so good, it attracts shaddy characters and it looks like many shops are closing down, some of them moving to the new malls like Paradise Center or The Mall, which is a shame because Boulevard Vitosha is a very pretty place.
