Traditional Italian dishes complemented by the ambiance of Venice – romantic decor of gold, stucco and flowers with Italian music lilting in the background. Wide array of delicacies. Excellent selection of fish, seafood and desserts. More expensive: average bill is $70-100. Noon – midnight.
Venetian Doge’s palace in Moscow! The restaurant is Mario’s twin brother; they have one mother and the same educational spirit. Handmade chandeliers, paintings with palaces, golden mirrors, mosaic stained-glass windows, gondola statue and starry heaven ceiling. The design might be a little cheesy but there is no other way to show splendor in Moscow. Luxury of Venice is reflected in florid moldings and in linguini with lobster in rich pinkish sauce. You will definitely get a respectful surrounding here: State Duma representatives and veterans of Russian pop scene. Bodyguards preserve peace and order standing outside by cars with blue lights and special car plates.
