“Real italian feeling”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

One of best italian food place in Moscow. Quite stable quality for more than two years. Usually busy all over the day, unfortunately serving finished at 11pm. Good thuna steak, fresh, not overcooked. Good wine selection and recommendation. Friendly, caring staff.

“My regular joy!”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

I would highly recommend to visit this place, while in town. It is quite tricky to find the entrance, but you will easily locate it by the very nice old Vesta in the window. Have a look at the walls when inside, you will learn all names for Italian pastas, raviolis, bruschettas and God knows what else!

Food there is delicious and very unique. This season they serve fried duck in two sauces, which is absolutely stunning. Must have dish no doubts. Ask for Prozrachnost' (Transparence) dessert if they have it, it will blow your mind away!

They have very descent choice of wines and drinks. Kitchen follows very strict rules in terms of cooking, so you would have same high quality food each time there. Enjoy one of the best seafood in Pasta and Bast too, and... bon appetito!

“Good :)”
Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

I was there twice. All food was palatable.
The only thing I suggest - do not take the table in the very left corner on the first floor. The WC is located right above on the second floor and the wall is made of a colored glass. So when someone is inside the WC, you can see the shadows on your table...
