“the place you will admire”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

i have already commented on this place but once again want to say thank you for giving us, Kiev residence and city guests, the opportunity to try really tasty Italian dishes. Nice atmosphere, friendly host, high quality service and fair price make this place worth visiting.

“original italian food and original prosecco wine”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

The ambiance is totally unpretentious and the chef/owner and his wife are true charming hosts who will make you feel like home. The menu is quite diverse, but anything you pick tastes the way it should, genuine and authentic. A tip for meat lovers: ossobuco alla milanese . Fantastic !! If you’d like to have a really good pizza in Kiev, you don’t need to go elsewhere.
Buon appetito!

“not far from Maidan”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

"not far from Maidan and Sofievskaya squares this is a great dinner choice. The service was very friendly and helpful. I had a caprese salad and the filet with truffle sauce and others in our party had pizza. All the food was fantastic. I would definitely go again"

“Left feeling a little short-changed”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Ordered two pizzas with mushrooms for which we waited 70 minutes. The pizzas turned out to be a bit smaller than a medium-size pizza typical of a chain pizza like Pizza Hut. Each cost 93uah or about $12, 30uah of that for mushrooms that, shall I say, were not found in super-abundance on the pizza. The pizzas were thin crust, tasty enough but nothing extraordinary.
I also ordered a plate of fettuchini with alfredo sauce and mushrooms.(This was a special order item for Walter's! Surprising that such a basic plate would not appear on the menu of any Italian restaurant.) For this, I paid 108uah or about $13.50. I would descibe it as a child's portion. This "entree" took me 2-3 minutes to eat. Again tasty enough (frankly by this time I was famished) but not extraordinary; however, the issue was of quantity and value for money, not quality.
One beer, one barjomi sparkling water later, with tip, came to 400uah ($50), which seemed a little over the top for what is essentially fast food.
Wait-staff was friendly and tried to please. The kitchen and the prices seemed a little out of kilter, however. There seems to be little idea of the concept of casual dining in Kiev. Dining venues, at least those above Ukrainian chain eateries, always feel compelled to aspire to be 3-4 culinary levels above what they really are and pricce themselves at accordingly inflated levels.
I won't be back there anytime soon to Walter's unless I have an uncontrollable urge for a pizza and I am in the Khreschatik area. Even if that eventualizes, I'll refrain from eating other items than pizza at Walter's. For the same money, or a bit more, I can eat better even in Kiev.
In fairness, Kiev is arguably not the best venue to indulge in Italian cuisine and you have to adjust your expectations accordingly.

Right around the corner from the Hyatt, this is a great dinner choice. The service was very friendly and helpful. I had a caprese salad and the filet with truffle sauce and others in our party had pizza. All the food was fantastic. I would definitely go again.
