Been 5 times, first four excellent simple trattoria, last one a disaster as the owner was not there. Recommended to go for dinner for higher quality. Fusilli alla friulana con luganega e polenta, arancini con acciughe, parmigiana di melanzane, pasta al gratin, tagliatelle con lepre. Fun to watch italian football.

What can I say... The ambiance is maybe not so cozy. The food however is delicious. And the price is more than reasonable, even the wine. Finally a restaurant in Kiev where they really want to serve good food and don't want to rip your wallet... Definitely will go there again...

My husband and I revisit Walter's regularly, as their food, service and menu selection have remained consistently excellent. The food is authentic, always fresh and there is something for every appetitie- variations of fresh crispy salads; vegetable, meat, fish soups; delicious appetizers, pizzas made in the authentic pizza oven; home-made pasta with sauces you never even imagined before ( my...

We wanted some Italian food, and surprise: we opened the door and conversation in the Italian language filled our ears, just like in Rome, Milan, etc. This seems to be where Italian nationals posted in Kyiv actually go. The service was very nice, if not always in fluent Italian, and pasta dishes, pizzas etc were arguably the best we have... More

We stumbled upon this place at lunchtime while on a futile search for a different restaurant. It was serendipitous! The three of us--including our son the picky eater--all found food that was delicious and well prepared. Service was incredibly attentive by very pleasant young folks who spoke excellent English. The menu was in Italian, English, and Ukrainian. We didn't expect... More

Last year I ate the pizza but had some reservations (no pun intended). This year I have ordered cotello a la Milenese and ossubucco and I am very impressed. I am very happy I stuck to meat dishes. I applaud the waiter for his honesty -- when asked which fish were fresh, he replied only the salmon. Salad, Morschinska mineral... More

The range is not between 8 and 31 euros... Unless you eat the cheapest and don drink :-) Anyway, we had a wonderful lunch there, the food is really good, all the dishes we had (2 pastas and 1 starter) that was 40 euros, plus 2 drinks.. Go for it if you can!!

To be fair I've to split the review in different sections: General (three to four points): Walters is located downtown, near Maidan. In the evening it's no problem to find a place to park your car - but daytime it's really difficult. The ambience is okay, a bit on the cold side, not really a place for a romantic dinner.... More

We went last December to Walter's to have a taste of Italy and I've to say that the food it's generally good. I liked the whole Sea bream fish cooked with herbs, the portion was big and tasty, the ravioli that my friend got it were normal portion but, as he said and shown, well prepared and tasty! Unfortunately the... More
