Located 2 min. from Kiev Central station. Good service (fluent english), very tasty and reasonable priced food and wine. Only thing to point out, was the loud music blasting out from the floor above (nightclub?).

Since we are huge Italian cuisine lovers, we chose this restaurant for my sister's birthday dinner. It was very nice that they had two special menu's on a time. One was for black truffle season, another one- for Sicily. Of course we tried meals from...both of them and it was magnificent! All the tastes were balanced and on spot. We tried shrimps with cherry tomatoes and arugula, ravioli with veal cheek meat, risotto with seafood and cuttlefish ink, pasta with black truffle in a cheese wheel. The process of making pasta was amazing, because a girl was doing it in front of our eyes. The staff knows very well what they are doing. Our waiter was Marina- very pleasant, attentive and professional woman. Biggest thanks to her for making our evening joyful. Also we would like to say a big thanks for all the team and especially kitchen chiefs- for making art. Totally recommending and coming back on our next trip.More

Perhaps in the context of Kiev pizza this is above average in price but to typical Europeans this is good value. You don’t tend to think of restaurants in the vicinity of stations to be much good but this is one of a few on...Kirpy St that make you think differently - good pizza and friendly staff.More

I would highly recommend Semifreddo if you find yourself in Kiev! Waiters were polite and friendly with a good knowledge of the menu. The waitresses did try to upsell but this didn’t bother us at all. The food was delicious, pizza was excellent and dessert...was great. Whilst a little more expensive than usual for Ukraine, it is definitely worth the extra cost! This is an excellent restaurant all roundMore

Myself and friends visited on our last night in Ukraine. Pros: -English speaking waitress and menu. -Plentiful seating - indoor and outdoor -Range of food & drink. I ate olives 87 UAH, a meat pizza 215 UAH and drank a Stella Artois (0.5l, 69 UAH)....-Free WiFi. Cons: -Waitress up-selling food & drink choices. -Main courses arrived at different times. -Plates cleared before everyone had finished. -More light on the table would be useful. -Waitress said “Tips not included”. -Invoice in Ukrainian apart from reference to tips!More

We ended up eating here twice, no problem just walking in without a reservation. Service is very good and full menu with specials (we were offered the special Lent menu and the special asparagas menu - these are obviously seasonal). This place is a little...more expensive than most good local restaurants, but the quality is good. We found the salad selection excellent, and particularly liked the papparadelle with duck and pumpkin and the rabbit with dried tomatoes and potatoes. The semifreddo is as you would hope also good.More

Nice place with lousy staff - it does not seem that parts of the staff like to serve people especially the girl that served us on dinner at spt13. Food ok, wine (italien) ok but expensive.

Went to Semifreddo for lunch and order Pizza with preciutto and mushrooms and it was very good. Located in a area surronded by other pizza places such as dominos pizza and others this restaurant is a lot better then those options. The service was very...good and the waiters were very kind.More

I like this restaurant. I’ve been there a few times tried different dishes and everything was tasty. I like the atmosphere there and it’s really “oasis” at that location area)) Love it.

I liked Semifreddo so much that I had dinner there on three consecutive nights! The pizza id excellent but so also in the spinach ravioli. The English-speaking waitstaff provides prompt, friendly, and attentive service. Eating in the covered outdoors is pleasant, at least in the...summer, although there is another restaurant immediately adjacent that plays some loud music. I obviously enjoyed Semifreddo and can recommend it highly.More
