The night didn't start well because of the waiting list to sit, approx 20 mins, reasonable but a bit weird, given the large number of tables before the church. Owner's honest greed but he also helped out to sort out the situation, tidying up, so praise to him.. Let's focus onto the food: nice risotto alla milanese, frankly blasted by... More

One of the best pizzas I've ever had the pleasure of enjoying. Great environment and atmosphere. Location is very ideal, only around 5 minutes walk from the Rathuas.

The setting is perfect in good weather - outside in a small square in front of a beautiful church. The food is delicious - I've eaten here dozens of times in the past 15 years, and don't think I've ever left disappointed. The staff are usually very friendly, which is somewhat surprising for a restaurant that's consistently packed to the... More

This is amazing pizza. The locals know it and it is always packed - get a reservation in advance. It is lovely to eat outside if you can. The staff is wonderful and they use fresh and delicious ingredients.

We often visit this restaurant, with friends or in a group and we are never disappointed. The menu is clear, the pizza-oven right in view, the staff is very friendly and food arrives promptly. Highly recommended!

This is a place I will be coming back to many times. Make reservations because it was crowded when we were there and probably crowded every night ! I love the fast-pace, italian style the restaurant had. Low lighting, tables close but not too close. Il sesante had a very nice atmosphere. So the food. Wow!! From the first to... More

Ate at Il Sestante twice during a vacation in Vienna. Making a reservation is a must since the restaurant is often fully booked, even on weekdays. The restaurant has a real Italian vibe with native speaking waiters and pizza guys. Like every restaurant in Italy, it's busy and a bit chaotic (which I like). Tried the pizza diavola the first...

I have been here about 8 times. Excellent friendly service. Absolutely fantastic pizza. The dough for the base is just right. Tomato sauce is to die for. Fresh simple and delicious. Consistently good and a must every time I ma in town.

Staying in Josefstadt

Neighborhood Profile
Josefstadt
The eighth district is an older generation’s Vienna at its finest: and this is what makes it popular with locals of all ages. Josefstadt has theater, small independent shops, romantic passageways, neighborhood cafés with regular clientele, church squares, town palaces and shady communal gardens. Trendy hangouts have conquered distinctive places such as the Old General Hospital (Altes AKH) and the vaults of overground U6. Theater in der Josefstadt on Josefstädter Strasse is the district’s cultural epicenter. Even if your German isn’t good enough to watch a play, you can marvel at the typical Biedermeier building and take a glimpse into the foyer. Lange Gasse houses an iconic local restaurant at its corner, as well as a legendary sweet shop and a bustling neighborhood market every Saturday. For small palace atmosphere and a different view on Vienna’s history, make your way to Schönborn garden palace (Palais Schönborn), which houses the Museum of Folk and Folk Art (Volkskundemuseum). Maria-Treu-Platz, with its summer outdoor cafés facing baroque church Maria Treu, and the historic passageway of Lerchenfelder Strasse 13 hide top spots for insiders.
