Had dinner outside on the terrace. Nice and lively outdoor scene. The food was high quality and it came quickly. The service was very good and the price quality simply excellent, Recommend the home made pasta.

only had a couple of drinks here as a pit stop, but staff were very friendly with excellent English given my Ukrainian is non existent. Did look at the menu and it sounded interesting, not sure about cured horse meat though..

Very nice location for a glass of vine with a good sight view. But, not for real Italian Caprese (tomatoes looks like from nearest supermarket) or Lasagne (very specific, but ok). If you want to find good Italian cousin in Kyiv, try something else.

My colleagues and I try to visit this restaurant anytime we are visiting Kyiv. The service is great and there is no shortage of options on the menu. They have a great wine list and the portions are appropriate.
