Description: 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 ordered two pizzas and did not leave hungry or disappointed! The serving were very large and delicious. The staff spoke English and were helpful. The restaurant itself was pleasant and quiet.

Just finished a delicious meal at this restaurant. My husband and I ate very well. Service was attentive with no rushing. We enjoyed the ambience and setting. The restaurant has tables inside and out and a good wine list. We enjoyed three generous courses each plus a bottle of good Italian wine for approximately $90 CAD - definitely worth it.

The main man 'Gorgeous' is a delight! Not only did he make us feel very welcome, his ethic is one thing that a lot of people forget - make every customer want to go back; we returned the next day. Delicious spaghetti and fish dishes and the best bruschetta I've ever had. A must visit, again and again and again... More

One of the best Italian meals I've had either in UK or abroad. Friendly, helpful and attentive staff. Good atmosphere - ideal for a romantic meal. The food is good value given the quality, and there are options for most budgets. Fans of seafood pasta must try the chef's speciality baked linguine - you really won't be disappointed.

I visited Rome this year then came to budapest. The food in this restaurant (pasta in particular) competes with the amazing food in Italy. We went twice during our short break (lunch times) and both times we received excellent service and had funny and friendly waiters/waitresses. 8 of us went and split the bill we had 3 main meals between...

Found this restaurant by accident with a group of friends after a morning's sightseeing - we were all hungry and tired - and boy were we glad to walk in here. Very simple Italian restaurant with simple, good quality food. Lovely pizzas and pastas enjoyed all round. We liked it so much we visited again 2 days later whilst waiting... More

We visited on a quiet Sunday evening. They delivered a good meal quite quickly and with no fuss which is just what we wanted. The restaurant has a nice vibe and the service is really friendly. Extensive menu so something for everyone. Only let down was the size of my pasta dish which was more akin to an entree. But... More
