Mercato

The earth doesn’t exactly move at Mercato, yet it still feels like the kind of place that adds something important to Piękna. A deli / restaurant hybrid, the neighborhood atmosphere is well suited for quick in-and-outs to pick up a bottle of wine or ingredients for dinner. Mercato ul....

Ave Pizza

Restaurants 5 October 2015 0

The argument over who serves Warsaw’s best pizza goes right to the wire, but there’s no doubting that Ave Pizza are up there on the leaderboard. Set across a sparse, metropolitan area, this fashionable L-shaped joint comes endorsed by the capital’s notoriously picky Italian community. Order the pillowy calzone...
Focaccia

Focaccia

Partner news 2 October 2015 0

It’s pretty much the most soothing spot I can think of: entering, diners are cocooned in a serene white-on-white environment that feels instantly calming. There’s not much else to the design, but it doesn’t need more – the right colour is enough: smart, stylish, smooth. Without knowing why, you...

Kotłownia

You’d never guess from the grey surrounds but Kotłownia is one of the emerging stars of Warsaw dining. Set in a historic disused boiler house (the Warsaw Uprising started right outside!)

Here’s one chain brand that is worth the hype. Featuring a chic look rounded out with Ferrari red colors, the thin crust pizza earns its spurs, and the pasta combinations are great. Vapiano Al. Jerozolimskie 63 (Lipinski Passage), tel. 22 356 10 50, open Mon-Thu 9:00-23:00, Fri 9:00-1:00; Sat...
Mamma Marietta
***CLOSED*** A scattering of tables make reservations recommended in Mamma Marietta, an informal looking restaurant with lugubrious interiors and solemn service. But the food, created by head chef Andrea, has an authenticity that’s rare in a city whose enthusiasm for Italian food isn’t always reflected by quality. The tomato...
Parmizzano’s
The prices are highly intimidating, but are offset by cooking that never falls below brilliant. Hotel restaurants get a bad rep, but in the formal surrounds of Parmiazzano’s diners can expect Italian food at its very best. Parmizzano’s Al. Jerozolimskie 65/79 (Marriott Hotel, Floor 1), tel. 22 630 6306,...
Ristorante San Lorenzo
Adorned with crisp, starched linen and Roman frescos this space is almost magisterial in design. The Tuscan menu is flawless and well worth the rather hefty bill. The wine bar on the ground floor features the same standards at a snip of the price, and it’s here you’ll find...
Trattoria da Antonio
At times you suspect you’ve walked into the 90s, what with the embellishments that appear at each turn – a Vespa, some stone lions, a water well. But this is no bad thing: at a time when restaurants are doing their best to look stripped down and functional, cheerful...
Stółdzielnia
A complete anomaly Stółdzielnia looks more like one of those one-day pop-up restaurants: unfinished looking, with odd-shaped tables and stark colors. But keep an open mind because the food scores big points. The pizza, pasta and seafood dishes incorporate imported Italian ingredients, and come close to blowing your mind....
