I'v been here several times and it was good, not 100% Italian, but very close. This time it realy was not good. The tomato soup was a thick puré what was not mixed. I had the impression that the chef just served the prepared half...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.

Pantagruel is an amazing place where I've enjoyed the genuine taste of Italian cuisine (which is unusual outside Italy). The wine menu is 6-page long, but the sommelier will help you find what you want. It's definetly a must-go!

Having only visited twice, I've had the black truffle risotto and the ravioli. Both delicious and recommended. The prosecco is also always a nice way to get the meal started. Bread and olive oil came to the table immediately after placing our order, and it...More
