I went there with colleagues, the place was too romantic for us. But service and food are great. There are plenty of wine. It's a little bit expensive but well located in Kiev.

This was my second visit to Al Faro. The service and quality of the food remain excellent. We started with a selection of sliced meats followed by steaks which were very well cooked to the ordered temperature. We also had an excellent bottle of wine although it was a little expensive! We'll be sure to return on a future visit... More

Enjoyed a nice food, and good wine in the restaurant. Service was good, taking into consideration that at about 9pm the restaurant was almost full.

Really nice restaurant. Location, service, settings and food are all well taken care of. Good place for both business meetings and outing with kids. Mine love pizza. Prices are at the mid-range which is very welcome. I say there are not too many dining venues in Kiev which offer such a well balanced value to its customers.

"Al Faro" is a restaurant with excellent food, attentive service, relaxing atmosphere and great Italian chef! The best place to eat in Kiev for business, special and romantic occasions, with family and friends. At “Al Faro” the incredibly high quality connects with the simplicity of Italian cuisine. All meals at Al Faro prepared exclusively from fresh ingredients, most of which... More

This is the second time I have been to this restaurant. The first time I really enjoyed it. This time I was somewhat disappointed. The staff are great and very helpful. The food let it down. We ordered Osso Bucco, Pappadelle with Shrimp and the Suckling Pig. The Osso Bucco had very little sauce and was tough as old boots.... More

This restaurant is one of the must visit places in Kiev. Starting with overall atmosphere, finishing with high quality meal they serve, everything about this restaurant is great. We were 2 couples of friends with initial intention to have some oysters. Alina, the waitress, gave us an outstanding service. She recommended some meals (especially deserts) which were best we’ve ever... More

I have been twice at "Al Faro", and I can say that both times it was a really nice dinner. The place is very nice, especially for a romantic dinner. Good quality of the food, even if we cannot say that is 100% Italian cooking style, but anyway really good. Also, and this is quite important as the quality of... More
