Pizzeria. 10am-midnight.

Il Patio (check average $20), second of the two Rosinters most successful chains, formerly known as Patio Pizza and Patio Pasta (open in 1993), was renamed and reinvented in order to create a competitive concept which would be more Italian and more passionate. Its also not just a pizza place anymore, but is positioned as pizza, pasta, grill and the marketing people have just launched a new ad campaign to support the menus theme and regional stratification. I tasted the Linguine Il Patio (390 rub) cream sauce pasta with shrimp, scallops and mussels very popular with the ladies. The staff claim its the very spirit of Italy and Il Patio, but I keep seeing the same recipe in all Italian and international grill restaurants all over Moscow. The sauce and pasta itself was a success, but I found the shrimp a little bit on the soft side, which indicates that they have been frozen and defrosted before making their way to my plate. Thats Moscow for you the seafood hell. For a starter I would recommend Insalata di rucola (160 Rub) the never-fail-to-vitaminize you rocket salad, good palate cleanser. There are also some new promising pizzas on the menu, 25-30 cm in diameter, nicely loaded, for example BBQ (270 rub), Bavarese (230 Rub). Pizzas are cooked in the charcoal stove, which definitely improves the taste. I always found Italian pop/rock music a little cheesy, but I guess you cant avoid it, if you go to an Italian restaurant.
