We love pizza, so tried many Italian restaurants in Vienna, and this is one of my favourites - if not THE favourite. Pizza is really nice, tastes like in Italy with fresh ingredients. One of my personal favourite is with mozzarella di bufala. The restaurant is very spacious, and has a nice atmosphere. But it is always crowded, so don't... More

The pizza is good and the service very efficient. Unfortunately, the place is overcrowded: is this pizzeria a victim of its own success? We went there on a weekday and it felt like a Friday (or Saturday) night. Very noisy and with tables so close to each other that is hard to breath. Restrooms could smell better...

There are pizzas all over Vienna, from the "Pizza and Kebab" joints at every subway stop to dozens of high end Italian restaurants. Most range from bad to so-so, but Il Sestante delivers an excellent Italian pizza at a reasonable price with very good service and, in good weather, unbeatable outdoor seating. Located in the quiet 8th district, with tables... More

My husband had the day off and we decided to go out for lunch. He said it was the best pizza he'd had outside Italy, and I have to agree. Pleasant and friendly service (the staff weren't bothered by hubby's dodgy German), and relaxed atmosphere. Prices very reasonable too. I think we will be back!

After a few days in beautiful Vienna and too much 'Austrian-style cooking' (as good as it is for a change), we felt death-by-Wiener Schnitzel etc had to end. Asking at our hotel, Rathaus Wien (which was very good), if there was a good Italian nearby, we were directed to Il Sestante. A lucky move. It is a really good neighbourhood... More

A piece of Italy in the Austrian capital. Fresh ingredients, fine pizza doe, nice staff. I strongly recommand to anybody willing to spend a good time for a reasonable price. The terrace from spring to summer is one of my favourite spots.

We visited this restaurant after a hard day of touring Vienna as it was near our hotel. We didn't have a reservation, but they gladly seated us anyway. It was busy, especially outside on a their patio. We chose to sit inside. The restaurant had a nice local Italian feeling, family -like and nothing fancy. We ordered pasta dishes rather... More

Many people recommend this restaurant but I can't seem to understand why. I went there 3 times and was disappointed 3 times. 1) On my first visit I ordered Onion Pizza. Maybe it is my mistake for ordering this, but I felt like there was too much onion on the pizza. In fact, there was almost only onion on it... More

I have been there several times so far. I think they are very good at making Pizza. I was also very satisfied with the steak I had. I can recommend their house wine also. You can sit outside during the summer. The atmosphere is great.

If it is good weather you need to book, as the place fills up around 6.30 because the square of the Piaristen Kirche is such a lovely place to eat. The Italian food is always good, and the wine list is good. Service variable particularly if busy but this is a great place to sit back and enjoy a bit... More
