I came here on the recommendation of a local work colleague and was lucky to get a seat in the evening. There is a good atmosphere in this restaurant and the service was very good and the food was excellent. I look forward to returning here.

Pantagruel is an amazing place where I've enjoyed the genuine taste of Italian cuisine (which is unusual outside Italy). The wine menu is 6-page long, but the sommelier will help you find what you want. It's definetly a must-go!

Having only visited twice, I've had the black truffle risotto and the ravioli. Both delicious and recommended. The prosecco is also always a nice way to get the meal started. Bread and olive oil came to the table immediately after placing our order, and it was tasty and fresh. Good service as well.

Great place to eat or as I did just drink coffee - excellent location with great views and cover if the weather wasn't as brilliant as I found during my visit.

Pantagruel is a terrific restaurant with a large and varied menu of European (Italian) cuisine. I dined there several times and each time the service was great with multilingual staff who were able to serve you in English, Ukrainian and more. The red dry wine that I ordered was very good. The total bill for a meal for 2, a... More

Very nice restaurant with a summer terrace in a great location. The pasta we had was fantastic, and so was the wine and the home-made bruschettas. Don't order Vitello Tonato, as it is definitely not the best, but if you stick to home-made pastas or sea food, you will not be disappointed. Overall, very positive experience, and will gladly visit... More

Pantagruel was recommended by a colleague in Kiev. Great Italian food and wine. I had the spinach pasta with anchovies and it was one of the best pasta dishes I have ever had. Sit outside and look out over the courtyard across the street as you eat. And visit the statue of the persian cat that use to live in... More

I went with a local who highly recommended the restaurant. At the moment the road in front of the restaurant has been dug up so be aware of that especially if you are wearing heels. It was 2030 Wednesday and we didn't have a reservation so we were tucked away in a small table. The restaurant is small and over... More

The presentation was good, a lot of staff, good location. All of which maybe meant the prices a little high. I went with the specials menu. The pasta dish was reasonable but not spectacular. No pizza on menu. Restaurant not quite as good as I had hoped, but a decent Italian restaurant.

The staff are lovely at this great, popular Italian. The food is superb, and you must sit outside under the awnings if the weather permits. We had our 6 week old son in a buggy, the 3/4 times we visited and it was never a problem 'parking' him next to the table!
