Italian food plus sushi bar. Great place to enjoy pizza prepared in a wood oven. 11am-midnight.
Delicious pasta and fine crisp pizza in its best Italian traditions. Italian restaurant is located in the Academy of Arts and it is always overcrowded all day long. Simple European interior and big windows open the view to Kamergersky pereulok (pedestrian lane). Japanese menu is completely unnecessary and odd in the idyll of Italian charm. Most of the people come here to enjoy penne aryabyata, lasagna and risotto with seafood. This place is beloved by many: businessmen from near by offices, beautiful fashionable ladies, local neighbors and students. You could probably call Academia now a chain of restaurants because there are already four places in Moscow. One of the restaurants on Bolshaya Bronnaya Street became a cozy nest for bohemian crowd. The interior is elegant but it has a comfort and casual tone in every detail: soft sofas, large vases, fresh flowers, plasma screen and abstract paintings on the wall. While the restaurant has been expanding business the quality of the pasta sauce has suffered signally. It is hard to make all the money in the world but it is easy to loose constant clients.
