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

Lovely pizza

We had this pizza as a takeaway after an exhausting day out. It was delicious. Perfectly cooked with a good helping of topping. Not heavy or greasy.

Amazing little Italian restaurant. Staff and dishes are authentic Italian. The Porcini e Salzissa pizza was by far the best pizza I have ever had outside of Italy (real mozzarella!) and I'm very picky with my pizza. Definitely worth the visit! And excellent pricing too, I would have paid twice as much for a pizza as delicious as this one..

For two weeks in Budapest, I always turned right at the end of my street. Two days ago I turned left, and discovered a tree lined walking street with about 20 restaurants, including La Coppola, a Sicilian Italian place I had the risotto with mushrooms and beef slices, and it was heavenly.

The restaurant is excellent - one of two best italian restaurants I know in Budapest! Very good service, great wines, nice atmosphere. We had the feeling of being in Italy. The price is fair, but not a bargain.

I have been there several times with some friends of mine almost a year ago. Great food, nice wine (I didn't expected to drink "Ca del Bosco" in Budapest). Absolutely tested and approved!

I'm Italian, I visited Budapest last year with my friends. We found this great Italian restaurant near our hotel, in the center of the city. Great menu, real taste of Italy, polite and friendly waiters. They have one of the best Tiramisù you can eat!

As we love Italian food, we were not sure what to expect. But the food was very tasty. And the service was great. We were served by a very friendly lady. Their bruschetta was superb. Dessert was great too.

We went here on the final night of our holiday and what a brilliant night we had. The food was amazing, the service uplifting and enjoyable and very reasonable prices. A highlight of Budapest and our holiday.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
