The food we ordered was delicious. Wait time was perfect. Everything came very fast. Pizza very nice, thin and tastes like italian. Fondant also very good. I like it very much and when I come back to Lviv anytime I will go there for sure again.

There must be many hundred restaurants in Lviv old town and the competition is fierce. However this restaurant stands out with its excellent food. The cheese plates and the mixed plates are very good starters and more than enough for two persons. I can also recommend the chicken and the pizza. The chocolate fondant was a hit.

Sometimes it happens that you want to have some real Italian food like thin delicious wood fired pizza with plenty of cheese. There is one really atmospheric place with firewood oven called "Cosa Nostra". It is designed in luxurious mafia-style (you can even have a picture in Padrino-hat) and there are very engaging photos in the menu. But the most... More

Cosa Nostra is cheap but cool (in a tacky way). They've done a good job on an obviously limited budget. The pizza is just OK, but the pasta and other dishes looked better. The staff are friendly and speak English. A fun, cheap, cheerful place in the center of tourist Lviv. Good enough.

We are regular guests in this nice restaurant. It is ideally located in the center of Lviv next to famous Rynok Square. In summer it is nice to sit outside on the terrace (although some disturbance by loud street musicians). In winter just the inside which is small and cozy. The restaurant has recently been refurbished inside and the outside... More
