Very very good

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.

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
