Great Italian food. Nice wine list. The service was good. The interior was great. The girls loved the tiramisu. I will go again when I'm in Kiev again

The restaurant is located across the street from the opera and one block from "khreschatyk" the main street of the right side of Kyiv. Va bene is situated in an office building sharing the ground floor... More

We visited this place for party of three for lunch. Centrally located - it was convenient to stop by after the business meeting. Each of us ordered starter or soup and then we were recommended grilled sea food assorti to share. It was quite enthusiastically sold by our waiter. And we understood why later. My pumpkin creme soup with fois... More

Been to this restaurant twice both times it was not busy. However, the service each time has been excellent as has the food. The only exception this time was the desserts. Not a place if you are on a budget, the reason why it was quiet. 120 Euros by Kiev standards is very very expensive for 2 people. It did... More

Good Location off the Opera House. Tasty food in very small portions. Service doesn't feel you appreciated as a client.

Va Bene has wonderful location next to the Opera House but is mostly underground so no nice window views. Interiors offer lots of dark wood and wine bottles - style which I personally don't favor. Service was impeccable, but food was very average. Carpaccio and salads were nothing special while mashed potatoes which I ordered for my younger daughter was... More
