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

This restaurant is beautiful located in a calm area of Budapest. Near to Kalvin Ter. The atmosphere is good inside and the table outdoors are perfect a summer evening. The only disturbance is the busses passing bye. But not so frequently. A perfect experience is if you Challenge the restaurant to cook for you based upon your taste and mood!... More

This very nice restaurant is located in the city centre. Finding a parking place nearby is not so easy, so the quickest way to park your car is to put it into the garage in Reáltanoda street. The restaurant itself has a very nice Italian atmosphere. There is a wide variety of foods on the menu. The staff is very... More

We are living in Budapest and saw this restaurant many times and wanted to try. My Fiancée's birthday was a good occasion to do that. It was a very nice experience! The place was not so busy due to a rainy evening but still all the outside tables were taken. The staff was very kind and helpful during the whole... More

We were there for a dinner with our children (3 years old twins) and enjoyed both the meal as well as the atmosphere. Starter mozarella bufalla plate was a real delicatese, fresh made and delicious. Then we had a pasta menu which was very tasty and made a feeling of having typical sicilian cuisine (I recommend pasta la copola surprise).... More

Agree with all the reviews, this place is great and the waiters are very attentive. They want to go out of their way to help you have a good dining experience. Will be going back again before we leave Budapest to sample some more of these great dishes. Very good menu, reasonable prices.

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
