Description: Siculus coquus et Sicula mensa...that is the Sicilian cook and Sicilian...
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

Good, clean Italian with nice menu

We visited this restaurant hoping for something light to eat and enjoyed La Coppola alot. The menu was creative, the waiters friendly, service prompt and the restaurant nicely decorated. Much recommended if you feel like a fresh Italian pizza or pasta.

A lot of restaurants serve risotto that is not quite right, overdone, underdone, or (gasp) prepared ahead of time and reheated. This shrimp and prosecco risotto was perfect! My spouse had the gnocchi, another dish that is easy to ruin, and he pronounced his very good. We shared a side of sautéed spinach with garlic (highly recommend). The Sicilian wine... More

This restaurant was simply amazing. The products were so fresh as if we picked them right out of the self. The mozzarella was so good, the pasta was home made and the wine was personally picked by the owner himself who didn't hesitate to serve us hand and foot. Yammi !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First of all the service was excellent. Even though we had a waitor that almost shouted out when I had lemon on my carpaccio because I was drinking red wine :) That was only an empasize of the proud italian. We got to taste different wines, and they were very flexible. The food was great (grilled vegetables, carpaccio and pizzas).... More
