“Very European”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

When you enter BIGOLI you think you just arrived to Western Europe, the design, the food, everything. It's not like a lot of the posh Ukrainian restaurants but more cosy than NAPULE (which is just 300 m down the road) - to say: everything is clear, clean and modern.

The food itself I would rate No. 1 of Italian restaurants in Kiev, no shish-shasha like STEFANO but high quality Italian food with fresh ingredients.

You can chose 4 different kind of Mozzarella and various accomplishments. Also the pasta is very good & home made. The main courses, superb.

Prices for the quality & the city are very reasonable.

Only in case I want a Pizza I would still go to NAPULE.

“Not bad but a little unimpressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Food quality was ok but there is better value in Kiev. The food took quite a long time to come out and, while it can be expected in Kiev for people's main courses to come out at different times, a 45-minute gap is unacceptable. I'm told the tiramisu is excellent though.

“Bigoli, Kiev - italian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Bigoli, Kiev - traditional italian restaurant. The peculiarity of the restaurant is Mozzarella-bar – fresh mozzarella, mozzarella di Bufalo, Burrata and Strachatella are delivered twice a week from Italy. Good pasta, good atmosphere. Waiters should be more "italian", they need additional training :O)

“Another great experience at BIGOLI!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Was there last Saturday afternoon... We arrived around 17:00 and stayed until 22:00. Drink 2 bottles of Prosecco, had antipasta, pizza, and 2 dinners all for around $100 USD. Amazing food, amazing fun, great service and very reasonable price.

A must visit in Kiev for great Italian food.
