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.

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.
