Restaurant Il Lago dei Cigni

Heavy Italian luxury in the most picturesque part of the Krestovsky Island — at the waterfront of a swan pond. That explains the name (in Italian, Il lago dei cigni means “swan lake”). Come here when you want to interrupt the flight of time and feast on artichokes, clams, and truffles, perfectly seasoned with the quiet of nature and the peaceful views. It is best in the summer when the restaurant’s patios are hidden by the park’s greenery.
