Not the most authentic (if you are N American) and no tacos to be seen, but decent Quesadillas and Burritos. Canned, oily guacamole (skip that) but a decent attempt in Eastern Europe. Slow service, good location, not bad prices.

Atmosphere and good waiters will make your evening. The food is fresh and home-made. It worth visiting second time. Good for romantic dates.

There seemed to be two La Cantina restaurants. This one, further up from the the Golden Gate seemed to be only Italian food, not the Mexican Italian quoted in the description. By UK standards the prices were excellent and the service and food were also great. The decor was charming and they had English translations of their menu that helped... More

A small place but with own character, though-out ambience, and menu, although not big, still "for everyone to find something" Frequented by foreigners - and I am not sure whether only due to location. A calm place with nice food, and nonbothering service

We dropped by this place on a mid november saturday night. The place was half empty and, some Italians (I am Italian too) were there before us, drinking prosecco. I must confess I was never fascinated by this place, the name itself sounds really too stereotypical, like a Ukr-Italian place, with only Ukrainians working...I was right... Food is not good,...

Surprisingly we met here nice atmosphere and kitchen, friendly staff. As well very nice location. Perhaps, close location of Redisson hotel influences positively of the place' management. Reccomend to try visiting here.

If you having been hanging out for something with spice in Kiev then this is about as close are you can get. As a chill addict I've been missing my hot spicy food in Kiev, while the food here wasn't amazingly hot there was defiantly more spice and flavors in it than anything else I've seen in town. Came here... More

The place is tiny with 5-7 tables maximum. They have very nice windows bar seats which would be great for morning coffee. Menu for a small place like this is surprisingly varied. Service was quick, efficient and nice. I had meat dishes, they were quite good. The only thing which really made me feel bad was the smell from the... More

The place is nicely decorated and feels friendly and warm. The food is good. Unfortunately, the young male waiter was arrogant and very unfriendly, which ruined the whole experience.
