Pizza. It means the same thing anywhere you go – a tasty doughy goodness with delicious toppings. However, if you have been to Italy and tried it there, you might find that the original is completely different from the ones you are probably enjoying in your local pizza place. For example, I am not fond of the American style deep dish version, with numerous toppings I would never combine together – like mince and pineapple… I prefer the classical Italian one, with only a few quality ingredients on top.
And so the quest for good pizza in Sofia has taken me to Franco’s – an amazingly simple and utterly delicious place to find yourselves in. It is weirdly not too popular yet, and there are always free tables when I go there – one of its main perks.
The pizza in Franco’s is definitely the best I have tasted in Sofia so far. The menu here is short and mainly constitutes of authentic Italian pizzas, some salads and desserts. All pizzas are served freshly baked on wooden boards. My personal favorite is Prosciutto di Parma – do not miss it.
The place is small and reminds me of family restaurants in Italy, where people sit close to each other. Bear in mind that there is no outdoor area, which is not a problem in summer since the air conditioning works perfectly. No pizza in Franco’s is more expensive than 10 BGN (pretty cheap for the quality), so do not hesitate to try them all!
