Probka

One of the most important Italian restaurants in Moscow, opened by Aram Mnatsakanov from St. Petersburg. Surprisingly, everything is possible here: you can stare longingly out the window over a bowl of soup, crack jokes with the friends, have a date night with your wife, talk over deals, and be moved by children’s parties. Here, you clearly understand that you are visiting an interesting person (even if he, himself, cannot always be found at home), and not a solidly built Italian restaurant. And I want to extend my gratitude to Aram for this presence effect. And for the cacio e pepe Roman-style pasta and the fluffy Borano omelet, too.
