The food was good here, quiet environment with excellent service. It seemed pricey for Moldova. The Greek salad was extremely good. The pork with berries was interesting and fairly moist, although I am not sure I would get it again. Price for salad and main dish about 20 Euros per person

The place is quite expensive for the quality of the food that they can offer and the stuff is not well trained!

The first night in Chisinau, old outside and it wasn't much thing to see when I was alone. So I walked outside a bit and I found Pani Pit here. It is an elegant restaurant, I ordered the beef with medium and the waiter introduced me the Fautor Cabernet Sauvignon wine. Together with the wine, the beef tasted just perfect.... More

I came here for a light dinner and they serve light meals like quiche lorraine and sandwiches. I have a quiche lorraine and a beer and then after a piece of cake with walnuts. Rather good and not so expensive.

Restaurant should be as relaxing as representable both, and Pani Pit deserves to be one of the best in Chisinau! Menu is delicious and different. Great atmosphere, music and friendly workers. You'll love this place!

I arrived on an evening, and got a table outdoors, in the restaurant garden. Very green, with a beautiful water feature, the garden is refreshing and relaxing. The food is carefully cooked, and the waiters are kind and good in helping out what food to choose from, and what wine to drink.

Classy, tasty and great atmosphere. The service is great and the music is for the right mood. Early autumn evenings or summer nights are always a success if accompanied by a fine glass of wine, their amazing food and your special +1.

We have dined at the Pani Pit over a number of years and always foundthe food and service very good. Particularly enjoyable is the outdoor patio dining during the warmer months. A gated patio with plants, sun shades and often acoustic music. It is very well situated and easily accessed by foot or car. The main entrance is on a... More
