Italian in Plovdiv

A few steps from pl Stambolov, Gusto strikes an agreeable note between sophisticated and friendly. There are diner-style booths upstairs; punters fight for several outdoor tables downstairs on the pedestrianised street. Choose from pizzas and great-value pasta dishes (from 6.50 lv), or slightly pricier, though beautifully executed, medleys such as duck with blueberries (14 lv) and sage-scented pork robed in prosciutto (10 lv).
