Pictures of other reviewers are outdated! The restaurant moved to an ugly new buildings and there are no ethnic characteristics. Apart from good plum brandy nothing special. Lower quality grilled meat, cabbage and peppers. No local cakes

Have been here many times. If you like Serbian food this is your place. Food is amazing and you get portions that would feed an army. Location is outside of town but worth the drive - every time!!!

This restaurant, just outside of Pristina on the road to Skopje, serves traditional Albanian and Serbian food. So if you want to eat some pork, go there. Quality is good enough. Many visitors, which mostly means fresh food. In- and outside can have a little updating and dusting.

Ciao is not actually a Serbian restaurant, but frequented by people of all ethnicities and is located in the southern Pristina suburbs. The owners are actually Montenegrin and the restaurant serves common food found in the Balkans. I frequented this restaurant monthly at least once and have never had a bad meal. The waiter is very attentive and sometimes comes... More

Small rustic Serbian restaurant, just outside Pristina, very close to the main road to Skopje. A lot of pork dishes on the menu. Warm atmosphere and friendly service. Ask for the day's soup - we had the only one available that day: lamb and vegetables. Delicious in its simplicity. The mixed salad was good, the sausage was tasty and the... More
