I discovered this place casually while I looked for Italian cuisine) Normally I don't expect so good when I travel abroad, but here I found a pleasant surprise. It's very comfortable restaurant, 20 minutes walking from Red Square, with nice style. One day I ordered pizza with Prosciutto and Mushrooms, not bad, and another day Fettuccine with Mushrooms (porcini).. !... More

Ended up here by accident after an evening stroll on Sretenskiy Boulevard. This place is very small and cozy and it was crowded on a Friday evening, so I would definitely advise to book in advance. An Italian couple was having dinner at the next table, they seemed satisfied, and I was convinced to take the mushroom rizotto... It was... More

We thought the name would say it all but it was completely misleading. We went wanting a lovely pasta to discover there was only one yes one! Pasta on the menu. Sorry but what is up with that? The rest of the food was bland.

One of several venues of the I Love Cafe network, this one was intended to be very Italian, and it succeeds! The decoration is kitsch like in most restaurants of the network, but original enough to create a pleasant ambience. Dishes are Italian with a twist, no less satisfying both to the stomach and the purse. Service is outstanding, but... More

One of my favourite places in Moscow. From year to year they manage to keep the highest quality of all their dishes and quick and attentive service. Perfect pasta, really better than in Italy, very tasty pizzas and nice antipasties - all that at moderate prices. At working days they also serve good lunches. Desserts are not their strong point,...

We ate here because it was close to our hotel and wanted Italian food. I ordered four cheese gnocchi. It was ok but small portion. For dessert I had tiramisu because the waitress said it was the best in Moscow. If that is the best in Moscow, I feel sorry for people who live there. It was very dry. Out... More

This place is quite simply awesome. Before visiting this place I resigned myself to the fact that good Italian food simply doesn't exist in Moscow - not so! All of the food here is very fresh, with an open plan kitchen you can see the pasta being cooked right in front of you. I also like it here because it... More

One of best italian food place in Moscow. Quite stable quality for more than two years. Usually busy all over the day, unfortunately serving finished at 11pm. Good thuna steak, fresh, not overcooked. Good wine selection and recommendation. Friendly, caring staff.
