Good, fresh italian cold cuts and cheeses, excellent fresh pasta, good service. At least one of the waitstaff speaks good english. Busy on a Saturday night - you might want to make a reservation or go early.

It was my first time in this restaurant. We choose it based on reviews from Tripadvisor. The food was great and beef tasty. It's said to be the best Italian restaurant in Kiev. I can't say it is but I liked it very much. The combination of food quality and nice prices are a winner)

I’ve been visiting Pantagruel constantly for more than ten years and I consider it to be the best Italian restaurant in Kiev. This place combines several unique features: authentic Italian cuisine, cooked by Chef Konstantino Passalacqua , who is a native Ligurian; outstanding wine list with reasonable prices; warm and democratic ambience; prompt and professional service with convenient location in...

My friend and I ordered a shrimp skillet and a baked mozzarella for starters, followed by curried shrimp pasta and grilled sea bass. Everything was exceptionally good. The somelier was knowledgeable and suggested us wine from a different region we originally wanted to go for - but... More

The seasonal menu is superb and changes regularly. Especially loved the pumpkin ravioli. A bit overdone not the salt of late, so have started to ask for my meals without salt.

Very good cuisine. Famous Kyiv restaurant from famous Kyiv restaurateur :) One thing to notice - it's not a cheapest restaurant, but of course all of us would like any restaurant to be not expensive. :) My personal opinion - the service could be a bit more professional (visited in Sep'13), but it was not bad in general and I...

The pasta here is wonderful. I ordered curry shrimp pasta, super good. My husband ordered some veggie pasta, also excellent. Only one prob is food came very very slow, but the restaurant was not full at all. It was a Friday night but not busy. Shouldn't take that long. Don't understand why. It's a place that I will go back... More
