If you'd like to dine near but not in your hotel, here you are

A small place but with own character, though-out ambience, and menu, although not big, still "for everyone to find something" Frequented by foreigners - and I am not sure whether only due to location. A calm place with nice food, and nonbothering service

We dropped by this place on a mid november saturday night. The place was half empty and, some Italians (I am Italian too) were there before us, drinking prosecco. I must confess I was never fascinated by this place, the name itself sounds really too stereotypical, like a Ukr-Italian place, with only Ukrainians working...I was right... Food is not good,...

Surprisingly we met here nice atmosphere and kitchen, friendly staff. As well very nice location. Perhaps, close location of Redisson hotel influences positively of the place' management. Reccomend to try visiting here.

If you having been hanging out for something with spice in Kiev then this is about as close are you can get. As a chill addict I've been missing my hot spicy food in Kiev, while the food here wasn't amazingly hot there was defiantly more spice and flavors in it than anything else I've seen in town. Came here... More

The place is tiny with 5-7 tables maximum. They have very nice windows bar seats which would be great for morning coffee. Menu for a small place like this is surprisingly varied. Service was quick, efficient and nice. I had meat dishes, they were quite good. The only thing which really made me feel bad was the smell from the... More

The place is nicely decorated and feels friendly and warm. The food is good. Unfortunately, the young male waiter was arrogant and very unfriendly, which ruined the whole experience.

I am not an expert of latino food, but I like this place - nice menu, good prices, good service, interesting decoration... I have been there on several occasions with friends, and for casual business lunches as well.

Patience does indeed pay at this Ukranian osteria. The food is all home made, and what our group of four had was delicious, most particularly the salmon ravioli. Nice wine list, but the wine we ordered was stored on a shelf high on the wall, so I had the young man select a bottle from the wine cooler located in... More

Simple unpretentious resturant that serves good tasty Italian food from a wide menu choice and good value. We've eaten here three times since discovery a week ago and it is now one of our favorites in Kiev - Champagne being the other.

This is a small place - about 8 tables, nice Italian food, friendly staff. Homey feeling. Good for a snack if you are passing by
