Couldn't believe we were eating at an Italian restaurant in Uzbekistan, rather than sticking to local food. But as vegetarians our options were limited so we were ready to try this comparatively upscale place recommended by our Bukhara guide.The biggest surprise was how good the...More

Granted the night we went the pizza oven was broken, so we were limited to pasta. Maybe the pizza is great. But the pasta is lame. So-called bolognese is just weak tomato sauce with some unspiced ground beef tossed it. You’d get closer to real...More

This restaurant is a 15 minute walk from the touristic centre but well worth the walk. Very cheap but delicious pizza and decent lager selection including Baltica

It happened in the cafe part of the restaurant. I arrived and nobody cared. So I had to force conversation with the service people. After 20min waiting for one coffee and a cake I left. They must have had a dispute among them or something...More

Bolognese was very good. Pizza pretty good too. Nice change from Central Asian food . A little away from main tourist sites but a short walk

We waited almost an hour for our food, and it really tasted like a very poor imitation of Italian food. There is no reason to walk all the way here for poor service and bad food.

Sit outside on the couches made for lounging and slow languid meals. A good wine list and surprisingly affordable. The pastas are good but the pizza was outstanding...just the right crispy thin crust with excellent tomato sauce and cheese. The service is attentive but not...More

The one thing that made our trip through Uzbekistan a bit difficult was that it isn't easy to find vegetarian food. They love their plov and their lagman, and they do it so well. But if one of you doesn't eat meat, that often means...More
