“A decent, affordable diversion from Russian foos”
Reviewed July 17, 2012 via mobile

Think Macaroni Grill meets Chili's. They offer you a menu for sushi or for Il Patio when seated. We had awesome creamy seafood soup, a great balasamic shrimp salad, and decent pasta with "proscuitto" (actually something like ham lunch meat) and cream sauce. The house white wine was citrusy and decent. My husband and I got out for under US$50, which for Moscow is again comparable to Mac Grill meets Chili's, or your average semi-casual night out (Nando's-ish for Brits). Service was friendly to me (Angliskiy only) and good to my native Russian-speaking husband, though dishes came out wine then pasta then soup then salad. Atmosphere was pleasant with a good street view and quiet jazz I the background. Vi do recommend this place when you need a break from heavy meat and potatoes Russian food.

“Good lunch place”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

This place is located near the embassy so once in a while I eat there. The pizza is good and they have decent business lunches.

“Walk on Volkhonka”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

IL Patio Address: Str. Volkhonka 13A. Hours: Monday to Sunday from 12.00 to 24.00.

Along with the Moscow Kremlin, the importance of the case Volkhonka Street (5 minutes walk from the Kremlin), because here are some more architectural structures: the complex of buildings of the State Museum of Fine Arts named after AS Pushkin and the gallery of Ilya Glazunov, built on the site of the House of Culture. A swimming pool on-site "Moscow", which was located nearby, now stands the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. IL Patio is also a new building constructed on the site of the old Soviet pizzeria.

I usually assign their business meetings in the above-mentioned Museum, Rembrandt Hall, on the second floor (up the stairs and to the right), then you can go to the IL Patio eat and discuss business issues.

About food: I especially like the seafood dishes that are perfectly cooked, and my favorite carrot juice. Visitors here there are many restaurants, especially Italian tourists who were here after the tour guides lead again from the very top of one of the world in Moscow and the Museum of Fine Arts.

Parking: the restaurant is a large parking lot, parked the car where you can go to a restaurant, a visitor without transport to the restaurant you can order a taxi, which will take you to the right address.

For guests with children there is the restaurant provides space with toys. The restaurant consists of two rooms (one for those who smoke one for healthy people) and a summer terrace.
