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

I had a pizza and an old school Austrian yeest beer (Hefeweizen). The pizza was yammy, the restaurant looks nice, the price is actually rather moderate for the area and the view on the piarist church is just fabulous. The waiters are informal and nice, quick and friendly. The place is to recommend.

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
