“Good local place”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

While I'm not from Moscow, I had the feeling that I was surrounded by Muscovites that were just out hanging out with friends because the food was good, and not over the top. It's certainly not a fancy place (similar to a U.S. diner), but it seemed like good comfort food. I really liked the borscht!!

Young couples/friends choose this Italian restaurant due to its speedy service and the quality of foods, as well as its convenient location close to city centre.

“Stylish Eating”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Academiya seems to be populated by both locals and tourists/expats. It is a stylish place with an modern, eclectic menu. It's a great place grab a quick dinner. I ate two rather more hurried dinners there of sushi and I was very pleased with both the quick service and good food. Don't go there for a nelegant meal, but it is good for that casual and shorter meal. On a tourist street near Red Square. Good location.

“Nice, but overpriced”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

I would say, that it's quite a nice place, but it's a bit overpriced. Tables stand really close to each other, so want it or not, but you'll end up being a part of a conversation with people sitting next to you.
However, food is tasty.
