La Bottega Siciliana

Upon entering La Bottega Siciliana you do not enter just any restaurant in Moscow. You enter Sicilia. It is not surprising, really. Everything here – from kitchen equipment to silverware and even interior decorations – everything was shipped from Sicily. The kitchen itself is manned by three Italians – born and raised. They also spent several years studying Sicilian cuisine. You know the one – seemingly simple, very traditional and charmingly rustic.

Apart from the expected tagliatelle and garganelli, there is another noteworthy menu item – homemade ice cream.
