We stumbled upon this restaurant walking around town. It looked warm and inviting so we decided to give it a go and left feeling very satisfied with our choice. The ambience is terrific. It’s very upscale (for Irkutsk) and we were the most underdressed in our hiking boots and fleece sweaters. We also appeared to be the only tourists in... More

We didn't see inside as we opted for outdoor dining, which was a bit chilly once the sun went down (we were offered blankets though!). The house red was exactly what was needed that evening. My wife and I both ordered pasta (Bolognese and Carbonara). It was good but nothing spectacular. We both ordered the small portion, which was indeed... More

It's a shocker! The pasta is nuked in the microwave and comes served as a clump of pasta that's clearly been in the fridge for days. After its heated they put the other sauces, flavours and meat over the top... Just not good enough.... We bought a bottle of Italian wine that resembled vinegar.... Do the Russian restaurants know anything... More

Our last night in Irkutsk after a great stay and before the next rail leg of our Trans-Siberian adventure and we were looking for 'nice' meal! After we got over the idea of not eating Siberian or Russian in this interesting and historical city, Italian seemed perfect and the restaurant certainly looked contemporary and funky for east Siberia. Service was... More

We enjoyed the atmosphere of our dinner, the service was lovely and they have a great little outdoor patio away from the noisy street. The food was ok and fresh. Enjoyed the salads and the spaghetti bolognese, the full portion was large, my spaghetti could have been warmer, but it was still great! and my friends who had the same... More

We had salad and pasta, great Italian food according to russian standards! Friendly staff, whose English was also sufficient enough for us to communicate. However some mix up with the orders and delays keeps us from the top score.

This is a nice Italian restaurant that offers numerous options and excellent service. My squid stuffed with cheese was fantastic. Recommended.

This is a very nice place to have great food and drinks with genuine smiles from Irkutsk waitresses. Comparing with other restaurants we went in Irkutsk and Listvyanka, the service here is very efficient and hospitable. And also unlike local restaurants, this one has their name(English name) noticed easily by travelers who do not speak Russian like us. You can... More
