If you are celebrating an important event or simply want some privacy, reserve a table between the windows and the wine cellar. This is the favorite spot of the owner and his dear friends.
If you don't know much about wine, ask for sommelier Alexander Andreev: he is on top of all the trends and will recommend you both some good biodynamic wines and some excellent classics.
If you come alone, sit at the bar counter: the bartenders are all excellent conversation partners, and you might be lucky and meet the restaurant's manager Roman Madatov. Just ask him about the things he loves in Italy or France, and you'll learn plenty about small towns and wineries.
