Oliva, a True Taste of Italy in Kyiv

2. February 2011 by Michelle 0 Comments

While no trip to Ukraine should be without tastes of the local cuisine, it’s nice to have international options to choose from as well. Visit any of the four Oliva Restaurants in Kyiv and you’ll think you arrived in Rome.


Oliva replaced the Pan Pizza chain in 2008 and has already become so popular that reservations are often required. However, the prices remain as affordable as a neighborhood pizzeria.


Pasta is made fresh every day and guests love the large selection of specialty pizzas. But don’t discount the carpaccio, risotto, salmon, veal, and chicken dishes. You’ll likely have a difficult time selecting from the impressive menu.


The cozy atmosphere is perfect for a romantic dinner with your Ukrainian bride, or a full on family gathering. With jars of olives on the shelves and dried peppers on the walls, the true Tuscan spirit surrounds you.


Each of the four locations is unique, yet they all encompass a genuine ambiance. Whether you’re in search of real ravioli, tasty tagliatelle, or premium panna cotta, Oliva is an ideal trattoria to visit during your Ukrainian vacation.
