The best restaurant in Chisinau after Symposium closed. Excellent meat and wine. A lovely garden outside when it's warm enough, where you can it under old trees, often with nice music.

Pani Pit has been a place for the foreigners because of its central location. It has a great atmosphere during the summer, but their changed menu and price is disappointing.

Pani Pit is one of my favorite restaurants when I am in Chisinau. The food is incredible here, not only traditional food but also the Mediterranean food. During the summer, there is also a wonderful garden open for clients. Excellent staff. Sometime there are musicians but not daily. As a minus I would say that the restaurant is open only... More

Top restaurant in the center of Chisinau. Large choice on the menu, professional service, and (to European standards) affordable prices (however somewhat more expensive than the other places in Chisinau). On Saturday evening there seem to dancing classes on the square adjacent to the terrace of the restaurant, which created a special holiday atmosphere. Not to be missed.

While Pani Pit is a solid choice in general, the last time I was there the asked if we wanted "meat" with our Mamaliga (a standard Moldovan dish for tourists new to Moldovan cuisine), but when we said yes, the waiter went ahead and ordered a steak (one of the most expensive items at 170 lei) and cut up the...

Five of us had lunch here on our final day before leaving Moldova & all thoroughly enjoyed it. The outside courtyard had a lovely ambience, the service was friendly & attentive & the food was great...particularly my veal in a creamy mushroom & brandy sauce....yummm! We'd thoroughly recommend that you try this place & then for desert, try the co-owned... More
