After an overload of heavy meat focused food in the Czech Republic, Germany, and Austria we were very ready for a change. We were not disappointed! Continental is a small, simple, family owned restaurant with inside and outside seating. The dishes, asparagus ravioli and pasta with clams, were both excellent as was the very large side salad ordered separately. Our... More

Recently had lunch at Cantinetta while in Vienna, the food, service, atmosphere was so appealing we actually went back two more times. Good value. The food was authentic Italian. A good spot to stop for a break and just enjoy the sights and sounds of Vienna

Visited this restaurant late on New Years Eve and were fortunate enough to be given a table for two for a quick meal before bringing in the New Year. Champagne was served and we order one course from the new years menu. The meal itself was OK but we noticed that a couple on the next table were offered their... More

I really do not understand the high rating given to this restaurant, i struggled to find any positive thing to mention: the food was terrible, I had the fish plate for two, and I right now feel sick for what I ate. The plate was as big as it was disgusting.. The potatoes were raw, scallops were rotten, and the... More

Dear Sir, we are sorry that you felt so bad about our fishplate, yes, it is big, but most of our guests are very happy with the size, our fresh scallops we receive daily ás our fresh fish from the market, what we do not understand is that you finished nearly all of it without reclamation, with respect but the...

We had visited the Christmas Market and we were looking for a cosy restaurant. We were very lucky and found Cantinetta. There was a table available and we settled ourselves in the corner of the restaurant. Service and food were perfect. We had also a nice talk with the owner and at the end he brought us the wellknown grappa... More

Everything from the appetizer to dessert was amazing. The antipasti was delicious, the porcini ravioli with truffle butter could feed two and I did have to share more than I wanted with my daughter. The tiramisu was delicious and more than enough for the both of us. Adorable little place!

Best Italien restaurant in Vienna. The food is to die for!! You have to try!!! The location is on the Ring opposite the famous Christkindlmarkt at the Rathaus. Great place for a date or a lovely meal with friends.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
