“Very romantic and excellent value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

The food, the environment is 5 star. Russians esp Muscovites love this place when they visit.
You could also get their home-made spaghetti noodles. For lunch, they have special -20% discount as well. Outdoor scenic view of pakrovskaya street is available too.

“Definitely a must”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
