Sophisticated take on traditional Italian cuisine. Great Kremlin view. Noon-1am.
Oscar Wilde’s novel inspired the restaurant founder to build his own quiet wharf on Kadashevskaya naberezhnaya (shore front) across from Kremlin. The small restaurant hall is designed in luminous colors with sea magic theme emphasizing this cozy venue with Italian enchantment. The restaurant is a long liver and the cuisine is still famous for its excellent spaghetti with langoustines. Customers are likely to be constant fans and long livers as well as the restaurant. Serious and busy looking Duma officials stop by for a quick lunch break with their businessmen friends. It is definitely a good place to make new business contacts and to discuss important State deals.
