When thinking of fine Italian dining in Krakow, the restaurant 'Vinci' located in the Jewish Quarter is definitely a venue to consider. Szeroka Street, home to local and tourist nightlife, is well known for its world famous Jewish Culture Festival but for a couple of years now it's also been popular among tourists feasting outside in restaurant gardens - and Vinci is a well-liked choice. The popularity of the area lies in its history, with Jewish culture at the top of it, so dinner in Vinci is a pleasant culinary adventure in a unique, cosmopolitan atmosphere.
The stylish taste of Vinci's Tuscan interior combines well with its appetizing menu and it seems Vinci's food options are in good hands. A reasonably priced selection of exemplary Italian classics like soups, pastas and seafood are completed by vegetarian options and dolce. But to not to be misleading it must be stated that meat options are well supplied as well, just to mention the signature dishes like loin of pork with forest mushroom sauce or beef steak in cognac pepper. Not surprisingly, the wine list seems to be long enough but what's surely striking is the fact that Vinci offers Polish mead! The moment of wonder becomes clear right away when you get to know that traditional bits of Polish cuisine can also be enjoyed in Vinci.
The proximity of Jewish cultural attractions overlooked by Vinci, like Remuh and the Old Synagogue or mikhev (Jewish ritual bath), means the restaurant accommodates an international clientele, finding a tasty and relaxing time-out from Krakow's culture vulture paths.
