I had dinner at this place two times in a row. Both times I had a superb "carbonara". Being Italian, I can guarantee that it's absolutely authentic and tastes extremely good. I also very much appreciated that, as soon as we sat down, we were served complimentary bread, just like we use in Italy. Book your table in advance if... More

We were in this restaurant couple of times, and every time food didn't taste for its price. Its pricy, not very cozy place. Tables are located so close, that I could hear what other guests were talking about. Always full of people. Dishes are plain, not tasty, except for desserts and coffee. There are better places where you can spend... More

I'm French and live in Kiev. I don't see so much good French restaurants, but Kiev can deliver excellent Italian ones and Pantagruel is among the top if the list. Service is neat, sometimes an additional smile would be welcome. As for the dishes, I have never been disappointed. Pastas, meats, starters... Everything is excellent, perfectly cooked, pasta are al... More

A very nice Italian Osteria in Kiev, right by the Golden Gate and not too far from the Opera House. Good selection of food and wine and not overly expensive for Kiev. Polite, friendly sevice. Seating outside on the covered terrace in the summer, but if wishing to sit there, obviously advisable to book. However, it was pleasant inside and... More

We went out on Saturday Night, taking mostly fish based food. Experience was very pleasant, tasty food, nice internal outfit, very friendly staff and house red wine was definitely a great choice. I would recommend it big time!

I never miss the chance to dine at Pantagruel. Near the Golden Gate, it's centrally located and in good weather there's a patio but inside, in two dining areas, it's cozy and quaint. Service is always top notch and the food consistently impressive. The bruschetta, tomato bread soup and pasta with rabbit are stand out items. There's always a good... More

I have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions and I have never been disappointed with the food nor the choices of wine, the choice of dishes is varied and there is always the chef's specials, the food is freshly cooked and the portions are satisfying. The vine choice is remarkable and if I offer a little advice... More

It is probably one of the best italian cuisine in Kiev. Cooking and service levels are very professional and consistent for many years. Affordable prices and intersting wine card, season offers and regions fests. But despite the presence of italian chef everything is too "industrial". What you shouldn't expect from this restaurant is the "spirit of Italy". You can hardly... More
