Smoking is allowed in Austrian restaurants. Shame, other restaurants we had been to up to then in Vienna did not allow smoking inside so we were shocked to find that this small restaurant allowed smoking, which I have to say despite the good pizzas spoiled it for me.

This is a homely restaurant, with basic decor. The food and wine we had was very good and reasonable priced for Vienna. However, we were disappointed to discover that the restaurant allows smoking after 9pm! When most people are now used to restaurants being non smoking, or some Viennese restaurants having smoking sections, this did spoil our evening to some... More

Skip the bruschetta‬‏ and go with carpaccio/ antipasti for firsts. We shared three pizzas and all were fantastic. Its a sweet small place with worm atmosphere and welcoming staff. Afterwards we walked around the neighborhood and toward museum district which were all packed with small bars and a lot of people (Fri night), Great experience.

This little place was a nice little find. Wonderful real soup freshly made, and good pizza. It has a nice environment, with friendly service. I didnt need much help, but get the feeling that it would have been there if i had asked for it. On the way out, at about closing time, one of the cooks was taking a... More

A very welcoming Restaurant in a quiet cobblestone street near the Museums in Vienna. Lovely food and good service. Homemade pastas, fresh insalata mista. Very good (real italian) pizzas. We enjoyed the meals and went twice! The mixed antipasti is also very nice, reminded us of our trips to Toscana.

On our first night in Vienna we called 4-5 restaurants that was full so we choose to go out of Innerstadt, and we found a very good and cosy little restaurant where we ate antipasti, ravioli and lamb chops. The food and wine was very good at informell setting. I guess it was a father and 2 daugthers that served... More

In Vienna on a long weekend break. Found this restaurant on trip advisor and couldn't be more pleased we did. It is another small establishment, but with an excellent menu and great hosts. This was the best eating place we went to whilst in Vienna. Both our pizzas were delicious and lovely thin bases, with tasty toppings and my wife's... More

I visit da Giovanni regularly, and have never been disappointed. It serves without doubt one of the best Pizzas in town at a very, very reasonable price. I have had Pizza in many countries around the world, and da Giovanni ranks way up in my opinion. I am surprised by the negative review before mine, specifically pointing out the Pizza,... More

Definitely the worst pizza I have ever had the misfortune to eat. Very mediocre (that's being kind!) decor and not very comfortable. Clean enough but very old fashioned. Totally uninspiring menu and if you want anything other than pizza you could be in for a struggle. Very limited selection of pasta which is strange for an Italian Restaurant. Sorry we... More
