Really satiesfied with the pizza. The pasta, tortelloni with chicken, was ok, but nothing special. The interior seems to have influence from Russia, not Italy. Not a cosy restaurant. But the service was good.

There is a 4 hour window for their business lunch, which includes your appetizer, pasta, meat and dessert and costs less than $9. I would recommend the 4 cheese penne for the pasta and the beef with mushroom sauce for your meat; the appetizer and...More

We were looking for something non kyrgyz after two weeks of goat meat. It's not really Italian food, and if you want a proper pizza you will be disappointed. But you do get a nice meal for a low price

Food is just fine (maybe because I had the business lunch menu) and can be a nice change for those who needs a break from local dishes. The restaurant is not very well decorated, but service is fine.

Why does the presence of Italian chef automatically make everyone think that the place will be special? Why would a great Italian chef end up in Bishkek anyway? I am not making any allegations but you have to think before making the assumptions so I...More

Walter, the chef is an institution of Bishkek now. Italian food is as good as it can be in Central Asia. Cozy atmosphere, good prices and services. My tip is gnocchi and Tagliata...

Would not say the right place to get italian food. Service is not best, and it goes right from the owner of the restaurant, who is more attentive and nice to foreigners rather than locals. Find it strange though. Lasagna is poor cooked. Meat is...More

The service and value were very good. The restaurant is considered by the locals to be expensive but for most tourists this is mid-range or cheaper. I rated the food average because you must consider when ordering the origin of the ingredients. I went twice....More
