I wanted a great restaurant in the vicinity of my hotel (Hotel Rus) to take a couple of friends on a special occasion. I love Italian food, so Al Faro seemed a very good option. Coming in from the freezing, bustling streets and stressful traffic, this was like stepping into another realm. What a beautiful place! As aperitif, we had... More

The restaurant has an interesting layout, which seems to work well. The service was excellent - friendly and efficient. The food was good, but not great - my lasagne was ok, but was a bit greasy, a bit soggy, and just wasn't that tasty. My wife's spaghetti carbonara looked better. Desserts were again good but not great. Wine list was... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Al Faro and loved the ambiance and food. We came with 2 children and thought the place was child-appropriate and friendly. The restaurant sent us complimentary frizzante and amuse-bouche, many thanks for that. Their pizzas were delicious and came very fast. I loved Ravioli Al Faro for rich taste and beautiful presentation, and my... More

First time there a year ago, disappointing. Friends told me they changed management and so i gave it another try. Besides the fact they asked me if i wanted first the pasta or the meat (?!), my simple spaghetti carbonara were overcooked and swimming in egg. The pork roll with bacon and peppers was a bit better but average. There... More

Nice design, but strange dishes: salad Cesarone-50% pitta bread, 40 % a bunch of uncut !!! leaves of lettuce and as a decoration 2 shrimps and 1 chicken fillet. Half an hour you are trying to cut pitta bread and another half an hour you are trying to eat all lettuce

I was dying to find a good pizza in Kiev and I found just that in Al Faro. I prefered their decor to Prego which is just across the street. The place is classy and they make a prosciutto pizza with a taste of tradition. We enjoyed that with a glass of chianti and got away with a 20 euro... More

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.
