Amarcord – Italian restaurant

Amarcord is a 1973 Italian comedy-drama film directed by Federico Fellini.

Amarcord is also an authentic restaurant close to Nevski prospect where you will be spoken to in Italian (or in Russian with an accent):

Amarcord, di ispirazioni dichiaratemente felliniane, è un caffè italiano situato nel centro di San Pietroburgo. Qui incontrano gli amanti dell’Italia: cucina, musica, lingua e cultura più in generale. Specializzati in paste, insalate, caffè, gelato: 100% made in Italy.

There are three cute tables at the window, they will almost invariably be booked if you come at dinner time (come at off-peak hours to enjoy them or book your table in advance) and many other tables in the room (but I guess you’d like to watch Zhukovskogo street waiting for your lasagna, especially if it’s sunny outside).

The pasta and gelato is hand-made (as well as in Pasta Fresca nearby), and here you get Italian cooking skills applied (there are 6 Italian employees at the restaurant). There is also Italian radio playing in case you miss that Venice trip so much you need both music and gelato!

It can get noisy (remember, it’s Italian) in the evening, so come in the morning for the introvert-friendly experience.

And if you study Italian yourself, don’t miss Amarcord’s free language speaking meetings (more details on their VK page).
