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

As Italian on vacation, satisfied

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.

We went for some food after work and had a great time at La Coppala! They easily accommodated out group of 10 and served a great meal. I would highly recommend the Pizzas, reasonably priced & very tasty! All in all, a great Italian in Budapest

Kata was our server ! She's good. Great recommendations. I had these amazing sausage and veal ravioli TSB had some special pasta of the day. Both were great food. Appetizers and salads were good. Great wine, good cold beer. We were so full that we skipped the after dinner cakes/ sweets. Limoncello complimentary at the end of the meal. Tables... More

This was the best Italian we have been to in some time. The interior was rustic/industrial which sounds odd but it was lovely. Our host was Italian and gave us a great table upstairs overlooking the Pizza Station. The food was so good, we booked the same table for the following night. Highly recommended.

We arrived fairly late - after 10.30 pm - and were greeted with excellent and oustanding menu choice (not too much; not too little) and delivery. We eat a lot of Italian food - as my partner is vegetarian - and this was definitely some of the best we have eaten. My tortellini with spinach and ricotta in gorgonzola sauce... More

My wife and I visited last night after wandering around Budapest for a few hours. Unlike a lot of places where they stand on the street and try to lure you in, the charming waiter advised us that there were a number of excellent restaurants in the area and to look around. When we did arrive, the service was excellent... More
