My issue is with the food. How can critics claim it has the “best italian food in Bulgaria”, when they can’t prepare a simple risotto. I mean for 30 BGN ($24 USD) I would hope it wouldn’t taste like plate of packaged processed rice with two frozen shrimp chopped into little bits. My starter was grilled apricots with prosciutto with greens and balsamic vinaigrette, which was nothing special. The flavor combination of the apricots and the prosciutto was off and the vinaigrette was bland. My husband had the fresh ravioli with pesto. The pasta was nice, but the pesto was tasted like basil and mint blended with oil and salt and pepper…. umm did you forget nuts and cheese (these can be experimented with, but you need to taste them).
I really get tired of all these trendy places that don’t live up to the hype. If you have a recommendation please pass it along. This is one of the reasons, I am so eager to learn how to cook properly, but that can only take me so far, with out the freshest ingredients, no skills and tricks can transform shit into gold.
