“Cozy restaurant downtown Kiev”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

This is probably the most cozy place downtown Kiev and with no doubt the best Italian restaurant in town.

The service is great, the selection of wines is amazing! Be sure to make a reservation in advance.

“Not a restaurant. A blessing from God.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

10 years in Ukraine and i have to thank Pantagruel and his Genoan-born chef, Costantino Passalacqua for having cared of my stomach and mood in such a glorious way.
It is not by chance that Pantagruel is the n.1 restaurant in Ukraine. Everything is right, there.
Each week a new menu, a combination of regional Italian food perfectly cooked and served.
Fresh pasta, great meat and fish dishes, selected wine.
A summer terrace far from the traffic, among trees and flowers.
Gnocchi, coda alla vaccinara, carpaccio caldo, cannelloni...you name it and you get it.
Wine are of great choice, always at the right temperature.
If you are in Kiev and you don't try Pantagruel, it means that you wasted your time in vain.
Business is not all, in this life, pleasure is.
