PESTO CAFE is family Italian restaurants. We care most aboutthe coziness and comfort for the family, and especially for the little guests.
PESTO CAFÉ restaurants network appeared thanks to the combined ideas and efforts of two friends. In 2014 they decided to create an establishment that would be comfortable for both adults and kids.
When creating the first PESTO CAFÉ, the restaurant owners were eager to think through every detail, in order to make the establishment really family-oriented.Because the creators of the restaurant network are happy parents: each of themis a father of three children. And, of course, both know well what the parentsand their children will like. That’s how spacious kid rooms with tons of funstuff appeared, and kind entertainers became regular members of our team. Also there’s everything that parents and their children might need: from changing tables to high chairs and children cutlery. Both children and their parents along with other guests that have yet to plan family enjoy being in PESTO CAFÉ. Everybody can find something suitable for themselves: parents may have football on tv, beer and juicy steaks, young mothers –meeting with friends with a glass of wine and light Italian salads, for their children there are some sweets from children menu and entertainments of all sorts
PESTO CAFÉ atmosphere is really cozy and positive: vibrant paints, a lot of light, spacious halls, that are decorated with attention to every detail.Restaurants interiors are made beyond time, without strong connections to trends that quickly tend to bleak. It feels like home, and the time runs fast, just like if you were visiting your true friends.
"We found the way to the hearts of children and their parents”! – PESTO CAFÉ creators state, and then add: “Children are our main guests”. A child`s celebration begins right at the entrance, when hostess gives each little guest a colorful balloon. Then there goes the spacious kids’ room, where parents may leave their children without fear under the control of experienced entertainers. More over, the whole area of PESTO CAFÉ is one big playground: regular guests got used a long time ago to the fact that children feel themselves free and it doesn’t intimidate anyone. When children are happy, their parents satisfied as well – it’s a golden rule of PESTO CAFÉ.
A combination of entertainments really impresses: toys, colorings, game labyrinths, busy-boards, that develop children, Waldorf dolls, cartoons and exciting games. And if you made a pre-registration you can give your kid a cooking master-class from the master chef of the restaurant. It’s nothing strange, that PESTO CAFÉ is a popular place for holding children’s birthdays and family holidays “on a turnkey basis”, when the guests don’t have to worry about holiday organization, they just come and enjoy the holidays in large portions. Because favorite treats, impressions and gifts are waiting for the little guests here; but the most important thing is adults’ attention, everyday creating a unique atmosphere of this place. On the other hand, adults that come to visit PESTO CAFÉ also become children for some time: all thanks to bright colors filling the interior, kind waiters and special aura of homey home. Though no adult jumps around in the pool with balloons or paint some colorings breaking a sweat, putting the tongue out from the engagement, their eyes, however, tell that they wouldn’t refuse such an opportunity!
"Real Italian” that’s how PESTO CAFÉ’s motto can be translated and first of all it concerns our cuisine. Most popular Italian dishes that are loved by the whole world are presented in our menu. Here you can taste most prominent Italian meals: crunchy bruschetta, appetizers and salads, risotto and ravioli, as well as various pastas of own cooking and a thin Italian pizza. If talking about meat, it can be said that our cooks offer excellent meals on grill, and classic steaks Ribeye and New-York and also firm burgers. You should definitely try vanilla Panna Kotta, tiramisu and cheese and blueberry cake. Besides classic alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks bar menu also has tea of own preparing (morrocan, berry with mint, with apple and cinnamon) and lemonade (orangata, lemonata, berrynata).
Children menu is created to be both delicious and attractive for little guests. Just have a look at pizza Gelsomino that looks like a smiling little bear or Mishka Bambini dish - appetizing croquettes with mashed potatoes. Adults and children, starting from 10:00 am and to closing are offered various breakfasts: porridges, curd croquettes, pancakes, egg dishes. During work days there’s a happy hour event between 3 pm to 5 pm – you can buy two meals for the price of one. Dedication and care about own family is one the traces of Italian character. That’s why many Italians, even after growing up are not very eager to leave home, where three or four generations of a large friendly family may live.
First family restaurant PESTO CAFÉ was opened in Kyiv on the 12th ofJuly, 2014 on Chervonozorianyi avenue (Lobanovskoho avenue now). Far location from the centre was chosen not by chance, because central part of the capitalhas already overloaded with restaurants, when dwellers of the house blocks have no place to go with the whole family. The fight for hearts and stomachs of the houseblocks dwellers became part of the restaurant strategy, that develops very quickly, and it should be admitted that PESTO CAFÉ has no worthy competitors inthis sphere. “We tend to be closer to people, - ideologists of the restaurant network admit. – There’s no need to wear your Sunday’s best and drive far away in orderto visit us, just like you’d go to the old friends. PESTO CAFÉ is a restaurant near your house, that’s suitable for breakfast, lunch and dinner, for meetings with friends and forrest after shopping “. Today the family of establishments includes 15 restaurants that located in different districts. Creators of PESTO CAFÉ won’t stop there. Becausethey were successful enough to create a unique restaurant format, that tookboth children’s` heart of any age, and of course, the heart of their parents.“Our creed is to become the best family restaurant of the country, - PESTO CAFÉideologists state. – We strive to make PESTO CAFÉ a favorite establishment for thewhole family. And we’re sure, that we’ll achieve that”. The concept of the “restaurant near thehouse” is the thing that dwellers of the capital lack the most. You no longer need to drive across the whole city just to come to your favorite restaurant,because restaurants come closer to favorite customers. Just look through yourwindow – maybe PESTO CAFÉ has already opened on your street!
