Food and ambience

Location and contact

A new page in the history of Aram Mnatsakanov's old Probka. Now on the edge of the Petrograd Side. Walk out the door and you can see St. Isaac's. 800 square meters: one half of the space is occupied by the restaurant with its open kitchen, the other by a simpler cafe.And then there's the Apartment, for special occasions. The rest is the same. Wine, pastas, and so on. Many patrons know the menu by heart. Come and see.

Without exaggeration it is my favorite restaurant in Saint Petersburg. Open kitchen looks amazing, you see how your dish is cooked right in front of you. And their truffle pizza... still dream of it :)
