Stefano gets better and better. Its definitely the best restaurant in Kiev. The service is immaculate and the food always meets expectations - try the veal in gorgonzola. in over 20 visits we never had a bad experience. It is one of the few restaurants in the town which makes the effort to recognise and look after its customers and... More

We sat down on a nice june afternoon, to have a glass of champagne. When the bill arrived, they charged not the price on the menu, but whatever they felt like charging. We asked the manager what was going on, and he was not very cooperative with the situation, finally when we had to threaten to call the police, they... More

Interesting décor. Food was very expensive (salad/soup $20+, main course $30-60+), but duck was tough - definitely nothing special in any way. Waiters now wearing uniforms that apparently don't fit by design with white sneakers - brought wrong main course to colleague. If food were better and service better, would be a first class, expensive restaurant.

Things has changed.. staff is more polite and smiley, except few guys, who think if they have white gloves on , then they are guards but not waiters.. Food is much better and outdoor terrace is lovely with a nice Rose, shame there is no Rose by glass, which is almost on every fine dining places around Kiev I think... More

From what I understood, service at the Kiev restaurants is quite an issue. Well, it is not in Stefano's. The service is really fast, reliable and knowledgable. OK, their English could be better, but... Now, the most important thing is food. I tried some mushrooms with foie-gras...And it was delicious! Fish was really good, and dessert was almost perfect! Comprehensive... More

We chose to dine here twice during our five days in Kiev, and that says it all. The general decor is fresh and interesting in this first class restaurant, and includes a giant floor-standing fish tank. There is both a terrace and small 'courtyard' area which are delightful places to sit out on a warm evening, so reserve ahead of... More

We went to Stefanos twice while we were in Kiev. The service and the food was absolutely impeccable. (One of the waiters actually helped put a blanket on me). I had the same dish twice, a guacamole and shrimp salad and it was just perfect for the appetite that I had. The restaurant itself is also a work of art... More

Stefano's has now been around for a few years and usually this type of restaurant soon loses its shine and food quality goes down. Not at Stefano's. The food quality continues to be first class and an intelligent combination of classical and modern Italian cuisine. The wines are of course over priced like everywhere else in Kiev, but the service... More

True, $500 for dinner (3 people, 1 bottle of mid-priced wine, no desserts) certainly puts this at the higher end of the price spectrum, but the food was very good quality and the ambiance is suitably "oligarch-pimp". Someone clearly thought a lot about the decor in this restaurant, if not about the flow of the various items from ceiling to... More

Two great dining experiences at Stefano's. Short walk from Hyatt Regency and InterContinental. Nice place to take a date. Excellent food and service.
