Ave Pizza Piękna 56
After experiencing landslide success in Powiśle the Ave team have listened to the market and expanded to the center. While pizza still plays a prominent role, their newest location is more serious and sophisticated in its culinary intent. Dishes like prawns in parma ham win blanket approval, while the...

Not long back this was the go-to place for Italian expats looking for pizza. What’s gone wrong? No idea, but recent trips reveal a kitchen that hasn’t so much rested on its laurels as died on them. La Bufala ul. Sienna 86, tel. 22 654 3277, open daily 11:00-23:00

Calamitous, slapstick service and accusations pointing to the overuse of readymade ingredients shouldn’t detract from good pizzas served in modern interiors of stark white walls and concrete floors. Our spicy tiger prawn spaghetti was also okay, even if the presentation looked like a student had cooked it. La Tomatina...
Trattoria Rucola
They’ve expanded to cover many locations across town, and in doing so have lost many of their regulars – as far as a chain enterprise goes, the pizza remains pretty good, but you feel a certain spark has been lost as a consequence of their growth. Trattoria Rucola  ul....

The sheer proliferation of Italian restaurants lends an element of chance to dining out: cut through the noise by visiting Delizia, a place that’s consistently topped polls ever since it launched in 2010. Lorenzo’s cooking is upscale Italian with a contemporary twist, and comes presented by Luca, an ebullient...

Purists applaud an approach that uses a custom-made oven from Naples and imported ingredients such as 00 Caputo flour and DOP certified San Marzano tomatoes. Scrupulously authentic, it’s no wonder that it’s packed to the gunnels every night of the week – even their Facebook page warns of 20...

There’s something immediately fetching about Punta Prima, a place that announces itself grandly with its deep wood panels and embroidered armchairs. For food, choose from a varied menu that draws on largely Mediterranean influences. Try the bream with herbs baked in sea salt. Punta Prima ul. Obrzeżna 1B, tel....
Bistro Bordo 
Two locations, one standing dead center on the revamped end of Chmielna, and the other tucked down leafy Gałczyńskiego. Opening earlier than their sister, the original on Chmielna offers a breakfast menu from 9 onwards. In both find simple Italian recipes accurately reproduced and wood-fired pizza ovens that are...

Polish foodies already know the name of Łukasz Toczka – single-handedly he pulled the culinary shipwreck that is Gdańsk into the 21st century during his stint at Metamorfoza restaurant. Now he’s popped up in Warsaw, and his Italian menu illustrates his talent: consider the bistecca con sedano a must....

In Baby Buggy Land, also known as Nowy Wilanów, it isn’t just the little tikes who are popping up everywhere. This southern bedroom community is prime restaurant hunting ground. Someone has to feed all the yuppies (a borrowed, re-formatted acronym for Young Upwardly-mobile Polish Parents) – and it’s a good...
