Their pasta, pizza, dessert are all delicious!! We enjoyed our first visit so much, we had to come back the next night. It's family run restaurant so their food are cooked to perfection. Very good Italian food with friendly staff! Highly recommended!

My partner arrived in vienna a couple of days before me and raved about this place. He was right. Very authentic and tasty pizzas. Staff friendly and laid back. Good coffee. The test of the menu ( apart from pizzas) isn't huge, but I think that's a good sign. Reasonable prices, what more could you want

We decided to try this place given it's recommendation on Trip Advisor and the Lonely Planet. What a cute little place. The owner greeted us himself as it was a late lunch and we were the only ones there. You feel like you're going over to a friend's house for dinner. He was really friendly, and had some suggestions for... More

Picked this restaurant from Tripadvisor reviews and I am certainly glad I did. My wife and I visited Vienna in May and decided to go here on our first night of 5. We were greeted by the owner who had just made some pizzas for some other diners and he showed us what his pizzas looked like. We decided to... More

Enjoyed dinner here during a recent stay at the Rathaus Wein & Design as it was within very easy walking distance. Bruschetta came in large portions and excellent pizzas. Dessert choices were limited but this is not a problem with panna cotta this good! House wine was also enjoyed and the whole meal presented excellent value for money. Friendly service... More

Great little place. Good prices. Perfect for lunch while touring around the city. The menu consists of pizzas, a soup or two, salads and a few pasta fishes.

This restaurant is a small, intimate place off the beaten path! The owner, Gert, is extremely hospitable and is a fantastic chef! The Ravioli frutti di mare was spectacular and the Ravioli al Tartufo was the best I've ever had! Don't miss this local restaurant!

This pizzeria is very homey and welcoming down a little pedestrian side street near Spittelberg. The first time we came in 2013, there was some kind of meltdown with no food served for about an hour, dirty pots and pans all over the kitchen floor and two of us got serious food poisoning from a fish platter (no longer on...

Arrived to an empty restaurant so a little apprehensive. Both my partner and I shared bruschetta and caprese salad followed by pasta . By far the best ragu I've ever had including any I've had in Italy. Add to that tasty desserts, excellent local wines and beers, all at a reasonable price. Definitely recommend this restaurant. Exceeded all my expectations.

It's been a really long time since I've last tasted such good pasta. Having visited over 40 countries, I must say that the food in this Italian restaurant is beyond applause. Enjoy.
