In 2012 two avid fans of Italian cuisine, Dimitar Dragov and Ivan Todorovski, put all their energy into the creation of an innovative concept which had not existed in Sofia up until that moment, Panini Bar Ciccione.

Ciccione is a modern dining and social life concept that combines a restaurant and a shop offering a wide variety of cheese, salami, bread, and fine wines.

You could buy products to take home or you could have your meal at the site, enjoying the comfort and the atmosphere of
the place.

The breakfast menu includes freshly baked croissants and muffins and top-quality espresso.

The lunch menu includes a wide variety of sandwiches, salads, and soups that will transport you away from everyday life
and into Italy with every bite.

Panini Bar Ciccione is the only self-service restaurant in Sofia for which reservations need to be made several weeks in advance.

The Latest

We constantly strive to offer new products to our customers. This spring we have added three new types of cheese to our range of products. These new types of cheese, Boschetto Al Tartufo, Pecorino Re Nero, Goats' Milk Caciotta, can be descried as peculiar and interesting.

Boschetto Al Tartufo is a fresh, semi-soft cheese made from a combination of a cow's and sheep's milk. It is infused with shavings of highly-prized rare white truffles.

Pecorino Re Nero is an Italian, pasteurized, sheep’s milk cheese. It is semi-hard and has a thin black wax coating. It
is traditionally made using dark ash and olive sediment to create its coating.

Goats' Milk Caciotta is a semi-soft goat's milk cheese. The name is derived from the old Latin word for cheese, 'Caseus'. It ages on straw mats. A must-try.

Surprise for the Customers

This season we plan to put emphasis on refreshing organic beverages like elder and raspberry drinks which are great for summer refreshment.

We have also taken care of the fans of spirits. We are launching new offers, typical Italian cocktails, which our customers can
enjoy at the terrace of Ciccione#3 at Gurko Street 9, Sofia.

Franchise Info

In order to continue our development and expansion, in 2015 we are launching a franchise opportunity that we offer to
