Everything here was underwhelming except for the pizza, which had great crust and toppings. The atmosphere is unexceptional, and I think the place is an overall miss.

I've been to this venue a few times for lunch and for dinner. The menu is organized rather as a trattoria. Quality is good. The wine list is good, Italy oriented (strange one would say :) ) and it changes once the stock is off and not once in 5 years is off which is good. It is moderately priced,... More

Nice Italian restaurant. Nice for couples in love and for business lunches. Different traditional Italian dishes... The most impressive dessert Lake. You will be really surprised. Even if you are on diet- it is perfect!

Western food in Kiev is really weird. Pasta was good (carbonara) but really small. Minestrone soup was green (!) yet tasty. The other dishes were ok too, but definitely not Italian, a local interpretation of it. The service on the other hand was great. Our waiter was super nice and attentive. Overall, not that bad but not that great.

There is much to write so many things here the plate of Anti Pasto probably should of been a sharing platter as the portion was enormous, so delicious too. It may be a personal thing but avoid rich cream sauces with pasta as they are too rich and hard to digest. However my partner ordered a Focaccia different from what... More

I visited Al faro Restaurant for lunch with my wife. The overall experience and food was amazing. Manager Dima greeted us on entrance and assigned Olga as our hostess which served us with her beautiful smile. I would definitely recommend Al Faro for any occasion while on a trip in Kiev.
