Good pizza and desserts

Our hotel recommended this place for pizzas and it was a good choice. We had two pizzas-one with fillet of beef and the other with Gorgonzola, spicy salami and black olives. The large pizzas are about 12-14 inches, so good for one if you're starving or enough for two to share with an appetizer... read more

We were looking for another restaurant and a Russian gentleman told us this one was good. Not even close. The service and food very mediocre.

Popped in for lunch on a grey weekday and were greeted poorly by a very surly guard who's mission in life is to look ominous. The rest of the staff weren't very friendly either and we noticed that others got served quicker than we did but we couldn't figure out if that was by accident or if they didn't know... More

There are many restaurants at this area. Unfortunately we had chosen this one. The food was rather average, the staff forgot a lot of things and they didnt know what they still had. So if I go at this area again, I will choose a different restaurant

It was Sunday, the place was not crowded but pretty much full, which created a very nice atmosphere. The interior is very cosy, and the cafe is situated in a nice pedestrian touristic street in the centre of the city. It has great coffee and wide variety of desserts. It is nice place to get a cup of coffee just... More

There are many Akademia restaurants all over Moscow. There is one we love: it's by the Saviour Cathedral, just in front of it. We like it because the staff is friendly, the menu choice is quite good, with tasty salads and great desserts and also the tea selection is fine. They always try to be attective and come to the...

Probably the only place where they can serve salad which is inedible. Fresh greens and a sauteed mushrooms with overdose of sodium. Very bad pasta. For the price they charged, they could have served at least one dish proper. I would definitely recommend anyone to go this place.

We went for pizza. We ordered drink and 5 pizzas when waiter comes after 10 minutes of waiting. After that we get pizzas and drink comes after few minutes. Food is correct and place is comfortable with good location. Maybe little bit overpriced but service is very poor.

Comfortable chairs in a great people-watching spot. About the only place on Kamergersky which doesn't have queues on a Friday night, probably because of the price. We ordered the Hawaii and the Spinach pizzas. Both were very tasty, very thin crust and generous toppings. Not cheap, but central. Good service.

Staying in Tverskaya

Neighborhood Profile
Tverskaya
Tverskaya can’t be discovered with just a first glance, the neighborhood is shaped around a long street populated with well-known shops and brands. But it’s more than shopping that makes this place interesting. Take a few steps into the streets running parallel to the main artery to discover the charm just behind the mighty Stalinist style architecture. Comfy European pedestrian streets Bolshaya Dmitrovka or Stoleshnikov lane are a great place to start. Locals can be found here working, eating, shopping, resting and going to the Bolshoi Theatre in the evening.
