This pompous Italian restaurant occupies a 19th-century mansion. The décor – gondola paintings, glass chandeliers, silk upholstered chairs, Venetian masks on the walls, fireplace and white grand piano, all evocative of Medieval Venice – behoves most visitors to be quiet and sit primly upright all through their dinner. The menu is strictly by the book: the popular Italian pastas (Carbonara and Bolognese for 350 rub. each), caprese salad (410 rub.), risotto frutti del mare (820 rub.). Arlecchino hosts culinary and wine festivals from time to time, such as the Colourful Italy Festival, when the wine list gets sizably augmented and wine is 100 rubles a glass, or the risotto and ravioli festival with numerous additions to the menu, lasting several days. Arlecchino has mostly Italian wines on its wine list. Sometimes they stage gourmet dinners with an all-new designer menu, complemented with specially selected wines.
