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.

One of the best Italian restaurants in Kyiv. Food is always good, no complaints about service. The interior is very nice, I would recommend this restaurant for couples, it's perfect place for romantic dinner.

I have been a long time client of this restaurant. Over the years they have changed the chef couple of times but always kept the quality. The menu is quite good. The pizza is very well but depending who is by the very special stone oven heated by wood fire, the quality may vary slightly. Everything else is very nice,... More

Great ambience. Dishes don't have that smth. extra - some were tasty, some were average. The waiter was somewhat annoying with lame jokes. In general, it was a bit overpriced for its quality level.
