The staff are lovely at this great, popular Italian. The food is superb, and you must sit outside under the awnings if the weather permits. We had our 6 week old son in a buggy, the 3/4 times we visited and it was never a problem 'parking' him next to the table!

Just stay away. Ive had better salads from wendy's fast food restaurant in America. Very disappointing and expensive. Tomato soup was nasty. Had soggy bread all in it. Left much to be desired.

Presented as a must go restaurant by our Ukranian friends, we were happy but not exalted at this restaurant. The interior is tired looking and kin of smelly, low ceiling Etc. Food was quite decent, including pasta and seafood. Risotto was a tad undercooked but could be due to our rush to make it to the opera theater. Wine list... More

If it's your first restoran in Ukraine, you could be impressed. But believe me, you can find better food and much better price. There you just pay for Golden Gate and Cat's statue view. What was strange for me that when you come inside, all tables with nice view had Reserved sign. When waiter hears that you speak English, he... More

I had a beef carpaccio and sea food pasta as well as bruschetta as a start. The carpaccio tasted weird! I thought it was the pesto sauce they put on top. I was sick for a day after. I'm sure it was the carpaccio. The place has a nice seating. It is relatively very expensive for what they offer especially... More

This place has good for but portions very small and price very steep for Ukraine. I ordered steak medium rare and it came out rare and tasteless. The meat was cold inside and the spinach side-dish was over salted with too much garlic. Also we were attacked by mosquitos in the outdoor dining area. More of a fine dining place... More

We are a Canadian family who have lived in Kyiv for 3 years. Pantagruel has become a second home as we eat here every 4-6 weeks. Every meal here has been delicious and the service always efficient and friendly. My favourite is the Osso Bucco, my wife's is the homemade pasta with asparagus and anchovy. Enjoy!

This is a good Italian place in the center of Kyiv. Prices are ok and the service is efficient and friendly. However, there is nothing particularly remarkable about the food, but you can sit outside which is nice.
