I'm not a pasta guy so can't rate the pasta. Nice Mediterranean style salads. Pizzas are ok, if not a little bland. Excellent fruit lemonades! Lunch times look pretty quiet so service is pretty good at lunch times. Dinner you may end up downstairs...........overall tho it's likely Iwill be back there on Friday evening. Lol.

Every time I come to Moscow, I eat at this restaurant close to the Bolshoi Theater. For me it is definitely one of the best Italian restaurants that I have tried in Moscow. The service is between good and mediocre, but the food is really good. You need to try the Tuna Tatar on Avocado Mousse. I eat it EVERY... More

I went several times to the Il Forno in Moscow. Food is very good, but the service is quite unfriendly sometimes, especially if you come before closing time. They accept serving, but do their best to make it quick and throw you out asap... Very frustrating. Will return there but definitely not at late evening.

We visited Il Forno early on a night when we had tickets to the Bolshoi at 7:00. This is a cozy Italian restaurant just across the street from TSUM and maybe a block from the Bolshoi, so the location was very convenient. The setting was comfortable and the service attentive. We ordered thin-crust pizzas, which came very quickly and we... More

Warm and cozy interior, cushy armchairs, convenient location in the pedestrian area. The food was generally very good, we had home made pasta, thin crust pizza and a few salads. This ceviche was very good as well, with a creative twist.

When visiting Moscow I sometimes struggle to find a restaurant that looks welcoming and has an English menu. This one ticked the boxes. The food was really good and great value for money, I would definitely return on my next visit.

Staying in Tverskaya

Neighbourhood Profile
Tverskaya
Tverskaya can’t be discovered with just a first glance, the neighborhood is shaped around a long street populated with well-known shops and brands. But it’s more than shopping that makes this place interesting. Take a few steps into the streets running parallel to the main artery to discover the charm just behind the mighty Stalinist style architecture. Comfy European pedestrian streets Bolshaya Dmitrovka or Stoleshnikov lane are a great place to start. Locals can be found here working, eating, shopping, resting and going to the Bolshoi Theatre in the evening.
