The pizzas are huge and very tasty. The music is lovely. Service is excellent: friendly and fast, they really take care of their customers. We would recommend it for lunch or dinner if you want to connect (i.e. discuss important matters) with your special one. We loved it, warmly recommended!

The restaurant is quite big and with friendly and fast service, but unfortunately the pizza was terrible. Definitely not a pizza the way an Italian would make it. The quality was very very poor (champignons/mushrooms where not fresh (from the tin), the ham was cheap 'cooked ham', the dough was very thick, etc...). For a restaurant, this is probably the...

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.
