It used to be my favorite place during the early 2000-ies but I stopped going there after 2005. This week I went back with an old friend and the place is still great. Still great wines for a reasonable price and the food is still very nice. Service is good, atmosphere is good: all good. The fact alone that they... More

I have eaten here a number of times and tried various dishes during my various business trips to Kiev. I love it and think it is great food at reasonable prices. The service is fast for Kiev. If you enjoy rabbit - make sure you try the various rabbit pasta dishes - they are just to die for. I have... More

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.
