Description: For many years Novocaina has been one of the best Italian restaurants in Wrocław. In our menu you will find what is best in the traditional Italian cuisine – homemade pastas, original Neapolitan pizza, excellent meats, fish and seafood, fresh vegetables and herbs, along with delicious desserts. A few times a year, our Chef prepares also a special menu which bases on seasonal products. All dishes offered in our restaurant are made with carefully selected, highest quality ingredients. The Italian cuisine is sophisticated yet simple; its exceptional nature lies not only in the passion to cook but also in the tradition of meeting your friends and family at the table. We hope that you will find joy in both our culinary experiences and the time which you spend together by visiting our restaurant!

“Nice venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

This is a great place to eat and drink but you will have to book if you want your favourite table. Try the mixed meat platter and beer taster board. Terrific.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

One of my favorite restaurants in Wroclaw, and a strong contender for one of my favorites in Poland. I came here twice and both times the service and food were exemplary. The staff speaks perfect english, the food arrived promptly and was delicious. This restaurant deserves its top 5 status.

“Trip advisor reviews did not disappoint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

For some reason when we were planning out our stay in Wroclaw, this restaurant was not on the list, even though it was the second most highly recommended on Trip Advisor. But after arriving at our hotel, we were hungry and started walking toward Old Town. As we walked by, I noticed the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence in the window. After walking around trying to decide where to go, we decided to give it a shot.

We were surprised that at 4:30 in the afternoon, there were so many there. When we requested a table, we were told that they would seat us, but the tables were all reserved for 6 p.m. We assured them that as long as they got the food to us, we could be done in an hour and a half.

There was really nothing about this experience we didn't enjoy. The service was excellent. The atmosphere pleasant. The meal was probably my favorite of our visit to Europe. I had the Salmon Calzone with spinach sauce and it was absolutely delicious. It was a chilly day and I requested a hot drink. The waiter suggested a hot wine with cranberry, which was perfect. My husband's pork dish was also well prepared.

There is a reason this is one of the top-rated restaurants in Wroclaw.

“Average food, terrible service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Visited the place with colleagues for a business meal.
The waiter's behavior was almost insulting, he barely provided any kind of service. We had to wait for 10 minute to be noticed on a half empty place, seating right in the middle of it. Took another 30 mins to have our starters and more than an hour to get our pasta. Food was average or worse. The only thing we enjoyed was the wine and a tiramisu at the end. Never again.

“Good place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Great location, and very friendly and efficient service. A very popular place, though why they would name it after a dental anesthetic is a mystery! A bit of a mixture in terms of the food that was served, we started with bruschettas which were great, shared a salad which was stunning - so fresh, and so much of it! - but the main courses were a bit of a disappointment, being warm rather than hot, and nowhere near the quality of the other courses. The wine was excellent by way of compensation, so they are forgiven! :-)
