Last visit 22 March 2015, with family
See: simplistic but stylish interior in white
Smell: that tempting and fascinating aroma of baked pizza
Taste: pizza with mozzarella, pasta, fiorentina bistecca, octopus salad and my favourite frittura mista
Experience: fast and courteous service by young and smiling people and don’t be surprised if after 2-3 visits they already remember you and know your preferences
It will not be an exaggeration at all if I tell you that this is the most wonderful smelling restaurant in Sofia. That aroma of pizza bread baked in an oven always tempts me to order immediately one of their wonderful pizzas but since I know they have also fantastic pasta and many other delicious dishes I restrain from my first impulse.
The next thing that you notice is the smile of someone from the staff who greets you and invites you to your table. (Just make sure you have made a reservation beforehand, since usually there are no vacant tables.)
The carte has changed recently and there are some new additions. As before it is very well organized and it is obvious that you can order various combinations of pasta and sauces. There are also many types of salads and there is always very good fresh burrata. The pizzas are my weakness, as I already mentioned. However, one should definitely have a good look at the other main dishes as well.
Leo’s Pizza Trattoria is one of the few places where you are professionally offered meal as per your current aptitude and mood. You can rely on the accurate suggestions of the waiters and you will never be misled. The place offers also a very good wine list both with big and small bottles.
My recommendation is, always leave some space for a desert. Last time I have tried for the first time their chocolate cheese cake. It was not just a cheese cake, it was a masterpiece of chocolate and zabaglione cream.
Of course there are many other splendid deserts but if you hesitate what to choose, ask the waiters, they know what to recommend, adjusting to your taste.
Leo’s Pizza Trattoria is my special place for the best pizza and pasta cases in Sofia, Bulgaria.
