Great service, OK food

Al Faro is located on one of Kiev's main streets just off Olympiskaya square/metro so it's very accessible. It tries to provide the classical Italian experience, and almost pulls it off. The menu is full of typical dishes from pasta to pizza to fish and meat, wines, and a couple of beers on tap as... read more

The restaurant is located in the downtown, not so far from the Olympic Stadium. The atmosphere is cozy, relaxing and pretty warm. I would suggest to try the Pizza , one of the best in Kiev!

Awful service and terrible food! I wouldn't feed it to my dog! The pasta was reheated! The gazpacho was terrible and had to return it to the kitchen after one spoonful

In comparison internationally they don't stand a chance, but locally I give them the predicate of "good" Staff is friendly and will try to help in limited english. Menu is in ukrainian and italian, so I can at least understand what I am ordering. Atmosphere is good. Portions are relatively small, prices ok.

Have been to this resto many times: good variety of Italian food and wine, pizza made in a proper oven. Price range - economy. Restaurant has a nice atmosphere, suitable for families with children, couples and solo gastro tours.
