Three years ago, when I came to live in Vienna, this pizzeria was among the best you could find. It remained at the top of my preferences until last year, but since then it has gone downhill. Pizzas are now way too salty and that italian magic... is just not there anymore. No longer part of my list.

I was here for a birthdayparty of a friend. The food was really great I had a sea food salad as starter which was really tasty and a pizza as main course. The service was good (a bit chaotic but I guess that's italian style). And the tables on the yard are really great with a nice view on a... More

We went to Il Sestante Restaurant on our first night in Vienna, since it was near our hotel. The place was packed and had an authentic Italian feel: people talking in a lively fashion, families, lovers, friends. We, my partner and I, had a bottle plus a carafe of wine, which more than helped us join the fun. We shared... More

I have frequented the restaurant for a long time, well over ten years, and I can say that the pizza has always been consistently excellent .Also you should try some of their desserts as they are excellent too. The service is normally very good... I lived in Italy for quite a while and I can say that the pizza is... More

We visited this Italian restaurant in December and found it good but very busy - but it was a Friday night in December. The place was heaving with people, including office parties, and we were seated near the door. However from our table we could watch the chefs making the pizzas from balls of pizza dough, the toppings being added... More

We sat inside, but it was great.... the pizza was very authentic and very Italian. The service was good and price was great. YOu can sit outdoors in front of a church... which is a nice touch.

Had dinner in this small restaurant last week. Didn't eat outdoors, there was a long waiting list, so we stayed indoors. The food was very good. Simple, but very tasty. I payed about EUR 10,00 for a big plate of pasta. I noticed that in this restaurant, as well as in other restaurants in Vienna, half of the tables is... More
