Delicious & exciting Italian food.

We had a really delicious Italian meal at Figaro. Very tasty pasta dishes and a really exciting salad. We also indulged in some delicious Italian wines that were really well priced. The staff were excellent. A great place to eat if you want a delicious and exciting Mediterranean meal.

Really very good food, service and helpful staff. After trying several restaurants in 6 week stay it is simply the best. I recommend the salads and pasta dishes.

I opted to come here after spending three nights on the train from Beijing. I had thought of going to a Mongolian restaurant that evening but decided against it after some "stomach" problems the previous day. I am very glad that I came here. The service was very good and the food - a lasagne and dessert - was of... More

The food was really good, the staff could not have been nice and spoke excellent English. Pulse they have English menus a rare treat. The only thing that could be improved was the small portion. Altogether I really enjoyed this place and if I was Irkutsk again I would go back.

English speaking staff was really good, made us feel like home. Great restaurant if you want to go away from Russian traditional food and also try Italian food made in a different way. I asked if it was possible to make a risotto with the ingredients I wanted, and the chef did one of the best I've ever tried in... More

We found the prices quite reasonable compared to other restaurants, especially the pasta. Looking for some food to remind you of home while is russia -... More

The restaurant is in the center of Irkutsk and easy to reach. Prices are quite expensive, but worth your money. They have a small menu, but that what they serve is really good quality! My rib-eye was perfectly seasoned and just melted on my tongue. My girlfriend had the tuna which was also perfect. The staff speaks very good English.... More
