Dropped in earlier in the day to have a look and was totally welcomed from the start. Returned later for dinner and they seemed genuinely happy to see us back. Looked a bit classy so wasn't expecting anything too cheap and it was a little highly priced. Super friendly and efficient staff with good food.

I think this is a really nice restaurant, with a very friendly waiter and the food was so good! The surroundings were nice and calm.

Yes, the service was excellent and overall I could leave only positive feedback but: 1) comparing to many other places it is overpriced 2) variation of Ukrainian food (may be east European). With an Italian name I was hoping to get some Mediterranean taste.

I had read the previous reviews and thought that this would be a nice treat. Well it wasn't, the server was arrogant, the fish was cold. Considering the restaurant was practically empty the service was very very slow! I don't think I would recommend this place to anyone!

This is supposed to be one of Kharkiv's best restaurants. This evening it was not. The waiter misunderstood our wine order. The starter was ok. The main course was duck which was really disappointing. In light of the price level the quality ought to have been much much higher.

I discovered this restaurant couple of years ago, and every time I am in Kharkiv it has become compulsory for me to visit for dinner. I also had multiple team dinners here as well. Have not been disappointed. Great food, and cozy and classic decor. Little in the expensive side, but I would say it's worth it.

I dined her on November 28th 2012, I was looking for a place to take my lady to propose to her. She caught me surfing the web, so we viewed a few restaurants for our "date." The video on their website made her cry, she said it is like a fairy-tale... so of course it is the restaurant I choose.... More

Good food quality, average pricing: we spent 700 uah for 2 with a bottle of boujoule. For this season siting inside is a bit dull I didn't like the rather small dining hall which is too much pathetic. I did not find any really delicious food, rather good and average for this kind of restaurant as they position themselves.
