“Great food, great setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

We came across Pesto Ristorante while strolling around the Kazimierz district of Krakow. We were starting to get hungry and everyone agreed that Italian food sounded good. We were led downstairs to a beautiful seating area in the cellar of the building. We all (5 of us) had a different pasta dish and everyone was very pleased. The spinach gnocchi with gorgonzola and the tagliatelle with seafood were especially excellent. Great food, good service, and a wonderful atmosphere!

“Wonderful New Year's Eve Dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we could see why. We had a table for four in the very atmospheric vaulted cellar. The food and service were as good as the ambience. Beautifully cooked meal from a very interesting menu and the whole evening was very well paced. As it was New Year's eve we really pushed the boat out with bubbly for aperitifs, 2 bottles of wine and post prandial drinks too. The bill was still only about £30 a head. Tremendous value!

“A great place to melt into winter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

The cavernous seating area below ground level was so unique and cozy on New Year's Day. We sat in the small vaulted area to the right...quiet, romantic...only two tables in that section. Some wonderful smooth jazz played, I believe music by Polish jazz singers. We ordered trout and dorade, which came whole, as we prefer. Wonderful. The fish soup and grilled vegetables as appetizers smelled so good. Dry white or red wine by the glass was the equivalent of $4.00. Wonderful tiramisu...we don't usually eat desert but wanted to hang onto our relaxing seat awhille longer. Would you let us sleep here, kind waiter?

“Amazing food, amazing service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We went for dinner to Pesto and had a amazing dinner. Their pasta is homemade and fresh and their beef tenderloin in Gorgonzola sauce is excellent. The atmosphere is cozy with the restaurant in a great location. I highly recommend it!
