one of the places very popular with expats here in Kiev. Have heard so many good things about this place, and came here last month for a business lunch. My friend and I were the only people there. The environment and the food was not impressive. More like a cheap eat without any special character. We had lasagna, which was... More

Great little restaurant between St Sophia and Kraschatek serving an amazing range of authentic Italian food in "homely", comfortable environment. I would recommend the minestrone and macaroni/cheese/bacon. Both delicious. Very reasonable prices. Service excellent.

Great choice of Italian food. The location is perfect, 2 walking minutes from Maidan. The family owned restaurant is making you feel at home

Been visiting this place a few times and every time I've got attentive and good service. All the pasta I've tried tastes just like in Italy, so if you are looking for Italian food in Kyiv, this is the place to go! From outside, this place can be easy to walk past, and the location in the basement might not... More

I have been to Walter's twice now and have had two very good meals. The mushroom and truffle risotto; homemade sausage risotto; veal in tomato sauce with cheese; and pizza, were all excellent. The decor is a little stark and not so warm, but the service is very friendly, and the restaurant is in a great location, just off Maidan... More

Popped in for a late night pie to go and was very happy with the service and the pizza! I will be back......well worth it! The crust was nice and thin and the toppings were high quality.

Walter and his staff are really cool, the food is amazing and 100% italian!!! The location is amazing, just 100 meters from Maidan Square and for the supporters of italian football there's the possibility to... More

You enter via a steel door in a side passage and it feels as if you are entering a subterranean hairdressing salon with white leather furniture. TVs on all the walls showing some lower league encounter with a crowd only slightly bigger than the one in Walter's ( there was one solo guy other than us ). The pizza was... More

I was taken to this restaurant by one of my friends. And I had a great time being there. Didn't know this place existed despite walking by it numerous times. Perhaps it is the unassuming front that keeps this amazing restaurant a secret. Once inside, you would be surprised! The service is impeccable and our waitress, particularly knowledgable. We took...
