I had lunch here. The food was decent, however they operate a scam on the wine list. Over the course of a long lunch, I drank 4 glasses of wine, and my colleague drank 2. When the bill came they had charged me for 6,...More

Dear Powderkegs, We profoundly regret your spoilt lunch at Pantagruel. And we are much concerned with this situation and cannot neglect it as far as your scam charges are very serious. Here at Pantagruel we used to have three variants for serving wine by glass:...More

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.

With great central location, this place is not noticeable from the street, nor has great interior. We were seated on the terrace, which was good to observe golden gates and park. Food is really good - try fish tartar, capriccio and homemade pasta. We were...More

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.

Awesome place with cozy interior, polite and helpful staff and rather amazing pasta, so as other dishes! By now it's the closest I've got to real Italian food in Kiev, as in the majority of places "Italian" is only the name in the menu.
