When you get inside here you are sure you'll eat well. Very good Italian style food in St Petersburg. I ve loved it!

The restaurant is a great combination of New York meatpacking district atmosphere and great Italian food. The service is very good and the crowd is great. They have a world class wine list but the prices are often a bit beyond. Anyway, it is a great restaurant that is also very conveniently situated close to all the great hotels and the main museums.

We had a delicious meal with excellent service sitting upstairs overlooking a number of flash cars and their minders coming and going

I think when you are in St. Petersburg go for the local fare. The hotel recommended this restaurant and we were not impressed. We started with steak tartar and enjoyed sharing, to much truffle oil for my taste but the meat was good.
Next I had a pasta with meat sauce that was terrible. The pasta was undercooked for fresh pasta and the flavor was poor. My husband had a risotto that was very sweet tasting and the rice was undercooked. Should know better than try risotto in Russia.
We like the space, the wine list was good and the ice cream was nice for desert.
Not a place we would go back to or tell others about.

We were attracted by the outdoor seating - not all that common in Russia. We waited at the bar for an outside table although the hostess said she couldn't even give us an idea how long it might take to get a table there. The waiter wouldn't take our order for quite some time, walking past our table, serving other customers and their subsequent requests. There was no stand for the wine bucket which had to occupy a significant part of our table. The menu was very varied in price - some of it reasonable, some expensive - but the food quality was invariably very high. Wine refills were provided when not needed and not when glasses were empty. If you have a Bentley or Lambourgini to park outside (as some did), I suspect service would be better. Otherwise to the left of the entrance, just one door down, they actually want you in their restaurant.
