PASTATECA is a small cozy Italian cafe, located in the heart of Ukrainian capital, near picturesque Taras Shevchenko Park. Inspired by outstanding Mediterranean landscapes of Amalfi Coast, designers created colorful and vivacious interior. The spotlight of the whole interior is a show-cube, where a beautiful girl makes fresh pasta every day. This is a kind of an open kitchen and a bright interior element at the same time.
PASTATECA is only 50 sq.m. and can comfortably seat 38 guests. No wonder its interior is rich on mirrors, which visually expand the space. Cafe is located in historical building of XIX century, so architects revealed an old masonry and stucco on the walls and the ceiling.
To accompany the historic walls, the main hall’s ceiling is bedecked with a fabulous Preciosa crystal chandelier, which was bought from a bankrupt Jewish family in Odessa. The classic chandelier is framed with unexpectedly modern black polyhedron made of metal rod. In a whole, this element eliminates all the brand philosophy. Guests are welcome to enjoy classic Italian food – pasta – in chef’s contemporary vision.
