I visited with two Russian friends for a couple of coffees and a dessert. It was a pleasant enough, middle-of-the-road restaurant, with no pretensions. The americano and espresso coffees were good, also the mascarpone pancakes. If you are staying at the Metropol Hotel and not feeling like paying the hotel's cost of a meal, this is a very convenient alternative.

Not a very expensive place, but food wasn't good. We went there for dinner and were disappointed. The pasta had too much salt the the pizza very average.

Great, authentic Italian food. As good as Italy itself. Friendly staff. Incredible imported beer selection. Portions are not huge but the taste is amazing.

Being located at a very vantage point, it seemed like may be over-priced or ok ok.. But one visit one evening changed the misconception. Its a good food joint almost opposite Hotel Metropol and is a big one too. Tiramisu.. yumm.. We stuck to vegetarian food and the options were limited but the serving was good quality.

Breakfast at this place was a complete disappointment. The breakfast menu is really poor. After ordering it took 20 minutes for the waitress to inform me that the ordered food is no longer available. The service was very slow, despite the low amount of other visitors. The food wasn't very tasty. I have got an impression, that they don't care... More

We had dinner at this restaurant, nothing special. The menu is Italian, but found the food bland. They were out of spaghetti bolognese! We did try a pizza, penne with bacon and a few salads. All the food and presentations were average.

Typical Italian restaurant, simple but good quality food, friendly service, at the gates of Red Square, perfect for quick meals and keep doing the tourist. Cheap.

Not so good, but not as bad, as could be. Staff doesnt speak english and gets annoyed when you dont speak russian ( ladies, you are in downtown Moscow, expect tourists). Makes you feel like you are somwhere in Vladivostok or so... Never again...
