Nice setting and really good, attentive service in this Antinori restaurant. The food is well presented, but not worth the price tags, not even in Moscow, and the wines are, well, Antinori with a mark-up. Would go back with business partners, but choose a different venue for a dinner with my wife.... We paid 500 US for 4 two course lunches and a bottle of wine.

Finding English speaking owners/managers of restaurants in Moscow was quite difficult. However in Cantinetta Antinori we received regal service in English. We were a bit frightened to enter the restaurant as there were several Bentley's and Porsches parked outside, but while we found the prices to be on the high side, they were not as usurious as some of the Russian or Georgian restaurants we tried. This was only a 10 minute walk from our hotel, the Mercure Arbat. The menu was translated and commented on very professionally by the general manager. He was obviously Italian and quite passionate about the restaurant. There is a large outdoor patio as well as a very elegant indoor dining room. It had the feel of a Tuscan villa. The food was outstanding, although I found that the wines were terribly overpriced and not worthy of the prices asked. Stick to the vodka martinis, they make great ones exactly as we ordered. This restaurant was a lovely reprieve on the inside from the hectic Moscow life on the outside. I highly recommend it.

The best Tuscan food experience in Moskow. The ambiance is fantastic and food is delicious. The maitre Roberto is very professional and the chef Mauro is able to mix the real Tuscan tradition with a touch of creativity. Bravo!

I've been in Cantinetta several times. Something has changed in the service and in the food. General environment is still good but value for money has decreased.
Still the wine list is very good

The food is always very good, the ambiance is warm, and the service is attentive. The prices are, however, steep, even by Moscow standards.
