That's a nice place indeed. It is located at the very center of Bolshaya Pokrovskaya street (which is a main touristic street of the city). We were here at 20:00 (reserved a table in advance, one hour before). There were some free tables at this time but not many of them, so reservation worth it if you are going to... More

The menu is 'complex' to say the least. Many dishes are of Italian nature or so they sound. Heavy on the cheeses and sauces, the place is not for the faint of heart. However, if you are willing to forgo mains and stick to salads, you may find a satisfying simple salad on the menu. Service is average. There is... More

Simple, decent food for a simple decent price. Nice balcony in summer, and very good service. The wine selection is not huge, but a perfectly good bottle of Pinot Grigio is actually one of the cheaper options. Good for a bit of lunch.

Very popular place, I beleive the main reason is really low prices in here. Pizza was good enough. A bit overcrowded in the lunch and dinner-time.

The waiters here are really friendly and spoke good English. The menu is quite amusing - they've added in a page at the start apologising that, due to the price of cheese in Russia now, they can no longer offer Parmesan for free! The food was good (pizza was better than the meat lasagne) but at 20% off on weekdays... More

Located at upper floor but it is worth to climb). A bit casual style with a libraly and real books as a background. One may read them! Many classics, both Russian and worldwide, also for kids. Food makes a very good impression in spite it's not aristocracy styled. Just looks good and tasty along with good atmosphere and quick (but... More

This little restaurant is located on the main city's street Bolshaya Pokrovka. Very cozy, always almost full regardless of the time of the day. Great place for students' companies. You can find on the walls very interesting "life-teaching" statements. Food is very good. When you walk stairs, you can see on the walls the great collection of pictures of the... More

This restaurant has good food at a decent price, nice staff and a pleasant decor. It a attracts a youthful crowd but doesn't scare older people either.
