Italija: "Avoid this place!" Moscow Restaurant Tip by xaver

This is a not to go tip.
I usually do no go to italian restaurant when I travel as I want to taste something different from home.
I ended up in this restaurant only because I found any place in old and new Arbat full and I was really too hungry and tired to move to another area.
As soon as I gave a look at the menu I noticed that prices were 60 percent higher than the standard.A simple and poor dish like Pasta cabonara costed more than 16 euros.
So I just decided to take the cheapest pizza to calm the stomach and then move somewhere else.Waiting for the pizza I had to witness to the italian owner insulting for several minuts his employers, may be he thought noone could understand italian insults in an italian restaurant.After I paid, I had to ask for the change as they were obviously trying to get a tip I had no intention to give them.

Favorite Dish: The pizza was not awful but sure not worth its price.
