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

I've been for a dinner not so long time ago, the atmosphere in the restaurant is nice a warm, the service is fine even if after a while the waiter stopped look to our table. The menu is interesting but there are not so many choices for main courses and if you want side dish or sauce are like extra.

The food has always been pretty good since this place opened last year and they are finally getting their service act down so it is almost turning into a pleasant experience. Sea bass, pumpkin risotto, Greek salad, and salmon ravioli were all excellent and the various coffees after lunch were very well done. English is still a challenge but the... More

This is a tiny little restaurant that is popular with locals, which gives it a cosy warm atmosphere. The highlight is the meat disg served to cook yourself on a hot rock, which is a fun way to eat. The food is very chealy priced although all veg and sauces etc are extra. There was a reasonable wine list and... More

We went to this restaurant thanks to Tripadvisor. Close by the hotel. This is a small restaurant but ver nice. We felt welcome. The waitress didn't speak very well English but we could understand each other. Me and my colleague took the steak on a hot plate with grilled vegetables and a nice bottle of Italian red wine. The steak... More
