This was another place that got a good name, so its one I had to try and see if it lived up to all the good reviews.

On arrival we entered and were approached by a member of staff, she asked if we had a reservation (we didn’t) and looked at her booklet. She then looked at us and said we had to leave in 2 hours, as the reservation would arrive.

The girl showed us to the table and left, and another member of staff came over and gave us the menus. Both girls attitudes were that of someone who couldnt really be bothered, and we were hastling them but we stayed just in case it was just a bad start.

The Food…

Main Course

Rustic Pizza 26 Lei
tomato sauce, mozzarella, spice salami, bacon, mushrooms, olives, green pepper, sweet corn and red onion.

We waited for around 25mins for our order….was it worth the wait?

You would think with everything on this pizza it would have a lot of flavours, well it only had a little as I think there were too many flavours and it just didn’t work.

I was very disappointed, as Big Bed got a really good name and this pizza was just hmm so-so.

Overall very disappointed, firstly by the service. I felt like I was an inconvenience tonight, and then the pizza which was not that good.

I wouldn’t go back here.

Sorry guys.

When I was in Craiova last year, I noted a few places down to visit….I then lost that list but remembered this restaurant.

I was told it served the best pizza in Craiova, so I had to pop in and visit and try.

The atmosphere in this restaurant was nice, and had Italian music playing in the background at a very nice level.

The Food…

Now time to test what I’ve heard…..

Main Course

Romanaccia 30 Lei
Tomatoes, Mozzarella, Sausages, Salami

This looked good and smelled good and I couldn’t wait to dig in.

This was a very nice pizza, the flavours and base were really good. My only issue was the crust was a little too hard….was this the way it was meant to be? not sure….

Overall though I really enjoyed this and would like to visit here again on my next trip to Craiova.

You will see in my future posts about places in Craiova where I tried the pizza, this was the best!! the others were either bland or not really good value for money.

If you are ever in Craiova do visit here, and try the pizza you won’t be disappointed.

This was another place recomended to me, as the owner is an ex winner of the TV show Masterchef Romania so I had to try it out and see how good it was.

On arrival the restaurant looked nice, and it had an outside section. Since it was a nice warm and sunny day, this is where we all sat for out meal.

The Food…

Tonights meal was family meal, so I forgot to take not of the cost (sorry) if you know let me know and I will update this post.

Main Course

Mushroom risotto

On arrival this smelled really good, and I really liked the presentation.

Now time to taste…

This was really good rissoto, flavours, consistancy etc all was perfect. It was also a very good portion size, so much so after I had 70% of it I was starting to struggle but I did finish it.

Overall

Was this masterchef quality? to be honest there is only so much you can do with food, but this was cooked perfectly.

I would like to come back and try a few more items, and take a look inside.

If your visiting here add this place to your list to visit, you wont be dissapointed.
