This year I spent my holidays in Tuscany – simply to have access to great food and splendid wines, accompanied by wonderful sights. Exactly that is what I am looking for in Polish Italian restaurants. Kotłownia was opened in 2010 in an old boiler house in the beautiful tiny and quiet Suzina street in the Żoliborz district.
Kotłownia sells beautiful wines from small regional sellers and lovely comfort Italian food (so necessary in the Polish winter season). Here we had a great cheese and meat board (34 PLN), bruschettas, salads (from 30 PLN), noodles (i.e. a vegan option for 31 PLN) and, of course, grand wines (apparently as many as 74 various wines).
Kotłownia is a perfect place to start (or end) a walk in elegant Żoliborz – check its green spaces with luscious parks, pop in for a drink at Prochownia, encounter Polish history in Cytadela, visit housings of Polish intelligentsia next to ul. Mickiewicza / Plac Wilsona and a lot more.
