“great for a pre opera pie... or two”

Russian fast food... pies of all flavours, all freshly made. When we went there pre-opera, they only had fish pie, meat pie and cherry pie left. Which was fine.

Don't go there for a romantic meal. Or fine dining. Or expecting anything. It's like any fast food joint - brightly lit, full of loners shoving pie in their face while reading or online. But if you want a taste of Russia it's well worth a visit.

And the pie is more like a sausage roll - they cut you a length. Pastry was good though. The meat filling was... fine. If you like generic ground oniony meat. The cherry filling was mainly a sticky jam, with a few morello cherries added in for show. It was also fine.

I loved it! But then I knew what to expect.

Didn't love this place, in spite of good reviews and that it was busy when I was there. Service was simply average and I didn't like the pies. Found them too sweet, even the savoury one. Wouldn't bother returning.

We had lunch on the run at 2 different branches (?11 different branches in St P). Can have half or full serve of savory and sweet pies, very reasonably priced. Depending on what time of day you visit they may not have the full range of pies - the early bird catches the worm! Queue at the counter and choose your pies. We liked the Salmon, Beef and Cabbage savory pies - not so much the White fish pie. Fruit of forest and Chocolate sweet pies also went down a treat. Cash only!!

we stopped here for lunch and we enjoyed our pies- both savory and sweet. The interior was nicely done. Not much of a line and reasonably priced although you do need cash, credit cards not taken. We would have returned in a heartbeat if we had been near it again

We visited Stolle for a late lunch as part of our organised tour of St Petersburg. Great quick meal where they have around 15 different meat / fish pies along with quite a few fruit versions. I had a half portion of their Rabbit Pie and a half of Apricot Pie. Both were delicious.

Highly recommended quirky visit with good quality food.
