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 were a party of 4 that sat down for a five course set dinner on New Year's eve 2014. Everything that could go wrong did actually go wrong. We had to wait for almost an hour for a small bite of bread with mushrooms. The waiting time just got worse for every course and we actually had to leave,... More

After a couple days of delicious, but rich and stodgy Hungarian food my friends and I felt like a change. La Coppola stood out to us as we walked by. Not disappointed. Among the best pizzas we have ever had and we've been to Italy several times. Thin, crisp bases with plenty of topping and flavour. Desserts classic Italian and... More

I visited this place with my friends on new years eve 2014 for a five course menu. This place lack in pretty much everything. Really poor service, boring food and unacceptable waiting during the dinner. Good wine though. I won't go back here.

Dear Toksmurfe, I think personally irrelevant express a review about a restaurant ,Coppola or others , from a single visit , if we also consider the fact that we are talking about a special busy day fully and over booked! Salvo Sgroi and La Coppola Team More

As a group of 3 on a city break we thoroughly enjoyed every bit of our meal. Pizza was crisp with plenty of toppings and pasta was full of flavour and a great sauce(rigatoni al forna). Salads are large as a side order but also great and tasty. Desserts were lovely. Wine was mid price but crisp and dry white.... More

Just returned from a great weekend celebrating my partners 40th (who is a bit of a fussy eater !!!!) but we ended up at La Cappola 3 nights out of 4. The food, service and atmosphere were fantastic.

We went here during our weekend Budapest and were welcomed by the friendly staff. The restaurant was cosy and the Italian hams were hanging on the wall. We had the pizza La Coppola, which was very tasteful with a variety of fresh ingredients. One piece of advice might be that the view from the outside could be more inviting (by... More
