Classical Italian

Was invited at Martinelli for a business dinner. Staff was very friendly and helpfull in assisting the choice of the meals. They were very ok serving 6 different choices to a table of 7. Nicely situated at Freyung, small restaurant with cosy seating.

Located in downtown. Having only like 15 tables, make sure you book ahead. I was with 14 colleagues, booked ahead but still had to wait like 15 minutes. Stuff looks Italian, they also speak Italian along with German and English. Interior is well designed, light and cozy. Service is a bit slow, but worth to wait. Savors are really nice.... More

We had lunch in this lovely trattoria (on the street setting), more or less talked into it by the waiter, who was a really nice person. Normally we would avoid waiters that are trying to talk us into eating at a restaurant, but this one just seemed very genuine and interested in the food on the menu. The home-made pasta... More

Found this place for lunch one day and was not disappointed. Excellent location, on the road to watch the world go by but far enough back that lunch was not affected by fumes. Food and service was perfect. One of the best Italians we have had in a while. Highly recommended.

Ate here once. Once is enough!!! Staff are pompous and do not give a good service. Food was grossly overpriced and poor quality. They even added 10% mandatory service charge!! If you want a good Italian try the Barbaro Groups far superior restaurant at Regina Margherita at 4 Wallnerstrasse. Staff there are very good and food is cheaper and far... More

Very nice restaurant centrally located in Vienna. Great place and terrace. But very poor service. It took as almost 45 min to get a spaguetti dish. Price/quality/quantity very expensive.

A lovely restaurant in a courtyard. The antipasto included vitello tonnato, mozarella and a delicate basil pesto sauce, beautiful smoked ham with parmesan, and several other delicacies. The main course of linguine with duck ragout was great. Good wine list and calm, attentive service. An very nice experience all round.

My wife (who is Italian) and I like to know and understand where the best Italian restaurants are in Vienna and so we gave this one a try one evening. Well it was the last time. Crowded with tourists this place neither offers an especially cosy atmosphere, nor friendly service and tops it off with mediocre food for elevated prices.... More

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.
