Siculus coquus et Sicula mensa...that is the Sicilian cook and Sicilian table. According to a Roman saying this is the secret to a healthy life. They came, saw and conquered: the Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Angevins, Hapsburgs, the Bourbons...Yes, every one of them! All these people, they left something in Sicily - Trinacria, for example, belonging to Greek mythology, the Gorgon in the middle and the three legs as tips to protect the island. The Arabs, skilled breeders of goats and lambs, and with them their milk, processed caciocavallo, provola pecorino. The testimony of the Saracens from the "sweet tooth" in Sicily is a legacy left by the nuns who handed down the memory, and it is thanks to them that today we have the real dough, cassata and Siculus coquus et Sicula mensa "cannoli". With the succession of all these peoples, Sicily today has a very diverse cultural heritage, that leaves a lasting impression for life, the memories of all those travelers who have had the opportunity and the chance to visit it. Between the oleanders and colorful bougainvillea, under the shade of the thick foliage of olive trees, savoring the delicacies of Sicilian cuisine, including fresh fish of the sea, the warm sun that enriches and gives an unmistakable flavor to fruits and vegetables, sipping her wine noblest, is unforgettable. Equally memorable are the inhabitants of this fantastic island, famous for their warm welcome and availability, full of life, with their kindling a sense of humor, with the inimitable "coppola" placed on their heads, with a joyful noise you preach good appetite. This atmosphere we are ready to offer here in Budapest! "Baciamo le mani!"(kind of typical Sicilian regards) Salvo Sgroi and La Coppola Team

We had dinner twice at La Coppolla. First evening the food was great, second (pizzas) a bit less. Service was a bit "strange" but OK. We were a group of girlfriends and we have fun together no matter what the service. Or waiter the first night was a bit arrogant and only warmed up a little when he realized I... More

Nice restaurant with good food. The service is nice but slow in the first floor. Pizzas are fine and check is fair. Would come back, but to stay in ground floor

My boyfriend and I walked past this restaurant every day during our stay in Budapest, but at the time it was undergoing redecoration. I looked it up online and saw the amazing reviews. I knew we had to try it, and thankfully it reopened prior to us leaving Budapest. So one evening, we went in. We were seated upstairs which... More

My partner and I popped in for a light, late lunch. We had a pizza each, the Diavola (hot salami, cheese, tomato) and a Napoli (cheese, tomato, anchovy) with a glass of wine and a beer. The thin crust pizzas were delicious, although the base was almost nothing in some places. The wine list was extensive but expensive, with very... More

We ate here after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and saw it rated so highly. The food couldn't be faulted in anyway. My partner had the Etna pizza (a favourite) and said it was very good - light dough and ample topping... it had to be fresh as on arrival we saw the kitchen and pizza oven! I chose... More
