“Definitely a must”
Reviewed 9 March 2013 via mobile

Have a great lunch or dinner for a small amount of money and enjoy lovely atmosphere in a city center. Nice menu; pasta and pizza are present, but no sushi. Quite popular; book a table.

“A Nizhny Favorite”
Reviewed 7 February 2013

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Nizhny. The ambience is relaxed, casual with plenty of books. Food is primarily Italian. The rooftop location on the Bolshaya Pokrovka walking street is outstanding, a convenient place to tuck in for a meal. The small balcony outside is an outstanding place to eat in the summer with a view of Pokrovka, while the ambience inside is not too heavy and thus is a welcome and relaxing place for indoor dining in the winter. I like their salads, gazpacho and risotto although the latter is uneven, sometimes being a bit too underdone. Like many places in Russia the waitstaff can be uneven as well. They're always friendly, just not very efficient so you can find yourself waiting for your bill for half an hour after you've finished your meal. I always ask for my check when they bring the entree. It's not a late-night place, with the last seating around 9 pm.

“Conveniently located, good food”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

Sitting out on the balcony on a sunny day is very pleasant. I had the four cheese risotto which was good but also very cheesy and also the gazpacho which was excellent. Good service.

“Great atmosphere..”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

The top-floor cafe has a lovely atmosphere and good service. The food needs a little work. Salads and pizzas were okay, but the home-made pasta was a little on the heavy side while the sauce was light on topping (it was hard to see the chicken pieces in my smoked chikden pasta!). There is an English menu and several of the staff spoke very good English.
