I was staying just around the corner and had read good reviews of this place. I wasn’t disappointed. The friendly maitre’d got me a table outside and I ordered a seafood risotto which was cooked to perfection. Friendly staff - very reasonably priced food and...More

The restaurant is very well situated next to the Golden Gate. The weather was great so we sat outside and enjoyed the evening atmosphere. I have tried other Italian restaurants in Kiev and been disappointed, but this is much closer to authentic Italian cooking. We...More

We met in 1995. This is love. Atmosphere, kitchen, staff and visitors. Here make the best pannakotta! The wine list is impressive. Here it is good both with the child and at a business meeting. Do not change!

I came here for the late dinner in July and got a comfortable time to spend. All the ladies were kind and smiling for the services and quick serve of dishes. Perhaps, it’s a little bit expensive in the market, but valuable for that costs....More

Visited the place again with friends from the old times when this was one of the only decent restaurants in town. Even though we were eight people, they found us a table outside. Good food, good service. Love coming back!

We had a delicious dinner in this Osteria in the center. We ate a starter with vitello tonnato and a fresh spinats salat with mushroom and beans. Then we had a good lasagna and a delicious beef steak. The service was friendly and professional.

Our first dinner in Kiev was a great treat. The restaurant is named after a Rabelais character Pantagruel and on the sign, Pantagruel is holding a beer mug. Well, the place is neither french nor a beer restaurant. The design is a bit naive and...More
