Where can you eat good, Italian food in Warsaw? Most local people would say it’s Mąka i Woda in the city center. Since the opening 3 years ago, almost every day it’s being visited by crowds, most of which are regular customers.
In the middle of the restaurant there is an impressive wood fired oven, giving an amazing smell. Around the oven its pizzaiolo’s kingdom, who brought their secret of making great pizza straight from Italy, learning from the masters. The restaurant also uses other Italian products, like great quality mozzarella di bufala, San Marzano tomatoes , or specially selected flour for pizza.
Another strength of Mąka i Woda is homemade pasta. It is one of the few places in Warsaw to prepare it on a regular basis, every day. Pasta is really pliant, with delicate taste, surrounded by light sauces, which are not nailing us to the floor after eating. Example? CICATELLA, with homemade sausage, romaine lettuce, egg and Grana Padano, GARGANELLI, with veal sweetbread, soffritto, romanesco, cauliflower and white wine, or my favorite TAGLIATELLE, with shrimp, onion, white wine and lemon zest.
Menu changes every few weeks, apart from a few regular positions, like pizza Diavola, Raviolo con uovo or dessert Budino (these are the symbols of this place). So it’s worth visiting Mąka i Woda more than once.
