I live in Kiev but i am italian and love food...Pantagruel (same owner as Napule) is the best i found. Been many times and always consistent. Must haves cured horsemeat, vitello tonnato, tagliolini midollo e tartufo, ossobuco, sgroppino. Expensive wine list.

Parody of the italian restaurant. Pasta mediocre quality. Inflated prices for food and wine. Poorly prepared fish dishes. Uncomfortable place for nouveau riche not for ordinary people.

Always good food no matter what you choose. Sergey, is always helping you to find the wine you need, remember to ask for him, not much English but not a problem. In summer time its very nice to sit outside, also for a breakfast. Remember to book before going there, always busy. The best tiramisu in Kiev for sure!

We were taken here by local residents, always a good tip ! The starter (goats cheese quiche) was bland (3*) but the salmon pasta main course was 5* for taste, if a little small - hence an overall rating of 4 stars. Good service, and a lovely location right next to the Golden gate.

This is probably the most cozy place downtown Kiev and with no doubt the best Italian restaurant in town. The service is great, the selection of wines is amazing! Be sure to make a reservation in advance.

10 years in Ukraine and i have to thank Pantagruel and his Genoan-born chef, Costantino Passalacqua for having cared of my stomach and mood in such a glorious way. It is not by chance that Pantagruel is the n.1 restaurant in Ukraine. Everything is right, there. Each week a new menu, a combination of regional Italian food perfectly cooked and... More
