The restaurant La Capannina has the goal to bring the true Italian high quality cuisine in the heart of Sofia, thanks to the selection of raw materials imported and selected from Italy and a chef with many years of experience maturated directly in Tuscany. We offer traditional Italian dishes revisited with a more modern touch in order to provide the right mix between taste and lightness.
