La Bottega Siciliana

This is Sicily five minutes’ walk from the Kremlin. The project is the brainchild of Sicilian chef Nino Graziano (Semifreddo), and it’s a great thing that nothing prevented him from bringing it to life. A simple and honest island cuisine, as well as the smells, the dinnerware, the tablecloths, and traditions — everything is reproduced with exactness and diligence that are natural to this chef. At the entrance to the restaurant, there is a small confectionary shop with Italian desserts and coffee. It’s best to come here alone when you have too much on your plate and you just can’t run away to Syracuse.
