I haven't been to this place for a few years and it has positively surprised me. Great interior, kind staff and delicious food! All the dishes we tried were excellent, we even ordered two of them twice. I suggest to go for avocado salad - best in Moscow, black pies and seabass in black salt! The price was not to... More

One of the best dinners I ever had in Moscow. Just couldn't stop eating as whatever I ordered was delicious. I feel like I'll keep seeing their food in my dreams. The service was also remarkable, the waiter was extremely helpful and attentive. The downside is that they were out of a few menu items, but we were offered alternatives... More

Let me start by saying about the food .. it's very delicious indeed. It's medium to high price but not issue if you a foodie. The two complaints that I have are they don't except credit card but they make you use their Cash machine to withdraw money if you still wish to pay. For a high class restaurant... completely...

By coincidence we ended up here an evening. Christian offers outdoor and indoor seating, and has a good choice of different dishes. I enjoyed the decor, but the chairs were a bit uncomfortable. This does not influence my review - the food was great, a bit slow, but we had a very good evening, and the staff were all great!

Visited on a rainy Sunday during lunch time. Food and service were good but not extraordinary. Setting is nice.

I invited one of my British friends who came to Moscow to visit this place, and she really appreciated tasty dishes and charming Xmasy atmosphere of the restaurant! Italian food is marvellous, the chef is young but a true professional! A magical candyfloss with a cheesecake is a must-eat!

Christian is quite an unusual restaurant. Many of the dishes on the menu I have not seen anywhere else. Everything tastes really well. Service is nice. The whole ambience is cosy and warm! Great place!!!

We went there on Friday night at 9:30pm. The decor wasn't anything particularly nice, actually quite bland on the 3rd floor. If you can, reserve one of the main areas. Not particularly romantic or nice for a date; the tables were WAY TOO HUGE so you're sitting really far away from each other and too much trendy electro-pop music blasting... More

" CHRISTIAN ": RESTAURANT FOR FRIENDS. Christian Lorenzini opened his nominative restaurant. He dreamed about it from a young age, since he was working in his father's restaurant in Tuscany and wished for independence and freedom. " Christian " is very similar to its owner. It's an informal venue with an open kitchen, an open mind and unbending atmosphere «for friends». Restaurant that has the frankly traditional taste of native Tuscany, with the “author's” kitchen created from the oldest home recipes of several generations of Lorenzini family, presented in a fun creative way!The address of the restaurant is quite impressive. " Christian " is located on the first floor of the building adjacent to the left wing of the hotel "Ukraine". Monumental architecture of the famous skyscraper effectively contrasts with the interior and atmosphere of " Christian." Crossing the threshold, you will find yourself in another country –a cozy, lovely, warm, but also ironic.Even the most important guest will have to smile, ease the knot on his neck and feel among his friends. The menu changes every week. Everyone can leave his or her feedback on it. After all, it is written on the board that is easy to wash. In the paper menu you can also cross out and write down your own dishes. "In Christian I cook my family’s and friend’s favorite dishes! Baked artichoke according to my grandmother's recipe, avocado cake is almost like my mother’s, exploded tartar or veal on the bone coated in herbs from Tuscany, and cottage-cheese cakes for breakfast according to the recipe of my second half.The menu is small, but we're going to keep changing it and add some new items. Our guests can order their favorite dishes that are not on the menu, for example, a goat or a goose according to their family’s recipe; although they will need to let us know in advance so I personally can go to the market and choose the best products.I want every guest to become a friend and stand with me at our open kitchen to cook his own dishes.I look forward to all the guests. "Christian Lorenzini
