My husband and I stumbled upon the cafe after a long day traveling and we're warmly greeted to hearty Italian food and a soccer match on the big screen. Two beers, a pizza and pasta cost us 4200 ft (20 CDN), very reasonable for the large portion size and taste. Majority of patrons were Italian and the waitresses didn't speak... More

I am a bit easy on this review. The best pizza, Italian food and athmosphere in Budapest. Cheap too. Great espresso and hot waitresses on top! What else can we ask for?

I marked this restaurant in my map well before the trip to Budapest. Second evening there we headed there for some good Italian food. When we arrived at the restaurant I was very suspicious.

An Italian neighbourhood cafe in central Budapest. Brilliant food, outstanding service, great prices, charismatic owners supervising proceedings ... What not to like about it? I hope to be back soon.

I have been in Italy luckily quite a few times and I can only say that this place is really how an Italian restaurant should be like. The decor is faded somewhat (as it usually is in Italy), but the food is great at relatively good prices. Spagettis are not on the menu, because they change daily in regard to... More

The first thing you see when you enter is that basically you can only east pizza there and the place isn't quite fancy and that's an understatement. However, when you get your pizza you can only say Mamma Mia!! Amazing pizza!!
