The Nabucco is no Verdi opera. This restaurant which is in Salzburg (Mozart's birthplace) will serve you fine food - not music. It offers a selection of traditional Italian dishes, for a real culinary treat. The staff are young and dynamic. Does a glass of wine take your fancy? The Nabucco has an extensive selection of Austrian and Italian wines. The dining room is cosy and bright with its arched windows. The restaurant caters for romantic dinners for two, private parties and business lunches. John Cadmann and his staff will make sure you are well looked after. A presto!

The reception, the service and the food are very good. Even without an reservation on a Wednesday night at 8:30 p.m. I can hardly recommend this place for all lovers of Italian cuisine.

went here 10 mins before they stopped serving lunch (2pm) but they were still happy to serve us pastas. Great price and excellent taste. Rarely have I eaten such fine bolognaise.

It was a Monday night, lot of restaurants were closed, and we finally found one, it was Nabucco. The food was excellent, also the wine and after these joy we had to try one of the desserts. The waitress was a little bit funny and nice in the same time. The wine she offered was excellent, and also the food.... More

The food and service is really a strong 4 star. They should really get rid of the ability to smoke in this place, it is just too small. They do have a non-smoking room but it is next to the smoking room so you leave with your clothes smelling like smoke. The pasta was cooked perfect and sauce was very... More

Arrived in pouring rain with my two young boys and no reservation. Great welcome. Offered what must have been the owners table - slightly private, large and would sit 8 rather than just us three. Very generous offer from the friendly owner in a packed restaurant. The food was superb. The wine was superb. The staff...superb. We promised to come... More

We were recommended by our hotel nearby, and walked in there with no reservation. It was full, but there was a table available. Friendly service and excellent food! We had a three course meal and got also a starter from the kitchen. I can only recommend this restaurant.

Good food but limited Italian menu. Staff speaks Italian. Menu in Italian & German. There is non-smoking room and a smoking room (where the front door is) Even tho' we were in the non-smoking room I could smell lots of smoke. Had veal picatta - delicious in a very lemony sauce. Husband had pasta pomodoro, very fresh. Generous portion sizes.... More

The second you walk into Nabucco, you forget you are in Salzburg and feel the warmth of Tuscany. The owner greets you with a large smile, a nice platter of bruscheta while you marvel at the very authentic Tuscan dinner menu. There were 8 of us at the table, all of us very accustomed to fabulous Italian food from Lucca,... More

We were seated outside in the pretty garden area as it was a warm night. Service was friendly and helpful, with staff making good recommendations. The food did not come out super speedily, but I wouldn't say service was slow- more leisurely, which was nice when on holiday. You certainly didn't feel rushed to finish your meal, even though people... More
