We found the food to be exceptional here--worth a second visit for us during a week stay in St. Petersburg. Great service, original dishes, and nice atmosphere. Like many nicer restaurants in St. Petersburg, the wine list starts at about 3000 rubles and goes up to ridiculous very quickly (i.e. you can't find a good, inexpensive bottle of wine in... More

We had seen this restaurant listed in our travel agents guide, yet everytime I asked about it, they tried to send me somewhere else. On our last day in St. Petersburg after passing by it several time, I said let's go. They had a reasonable wine list, the food was nothing short of wonderful. I had a pasta with seafood,... More

Eating there wasn't that special, but it has some of the best and freshest Italian meats, spices and cheeses for take out. You will not be disappointed

Based on high rated reviews we had dinner in Receptoria. I had pasta and then duck. It is pity when all ordered dishes is absolute neutral. It was eatable but nothing else to describe. Prices are high. But taste is less then ordinary. May we were at Monday. No visitors exclude us. No booking required. I was stupid to go... More

Food was mediocre, attentive service. Complimentary desserts was interesting. Very expensive for portions. Restaurant was very clean with pressed white table clothes. Felt like I was in a cave, not much natural lighting, cloudy day. It could be romantic atmosphere for younger crowd. Bathroom was clean.

This Italian restaurant has a great location opposite the Admiralty (Alexander) garden. The food is high quality and the service attentive. I ordered a tartare of salmon and a mushroom & truffle risotto. High quality but small portions. This meal, with three glasses of wine, cost RUB 3100. Pricey, I thought.

We walked and walked to get to this restaurant and it was worth every step. The chef knows what he is doing. The asparagus risotto was to die for. Everything else -- starters, main courses and desserts, were excellent. Highly recommended.

I was sleeping at Renaissance hotel, not far away from the restaurant and decided to give it a try. The food was very good, well presented. I have a feeling that it is a mix of Italian and French cuisine, with a strong wine list and a upscale environment. You eat well, you are attended well and you pay the... More

The pumpkin soup was excellent. The salmon was very good and the duck crepes very tasty. The sabyon was a little too sweet. The decor is warm and inviting. The service was good but we had some communication problems. It didn't affect our food but we ended up with 2 desserts and all we wanted were 2 spoons to share... More
