Turned up at busy lunch and was seated straight away in the Osteria. We were in casual clothes and felt a bit out of place as there were a lot of people on business lunches (we went on Monday). The food was tasty and good quality - portions were smaller than Hungarian standards, but quality definitely made up for it.... More

The best of...Great environment, staff courtesy, variety in the dishes. High elegance but not heavy. Much indicated for impressive situations. Fairly expensive but limitated, considering the high quality of food.

We were fortunate to rent an apartment near this restaurant and the beautiful Dohany Street Synagogue. Our landlord recommended Fausto's and we are so happy we dined there on our last night in Pest. Everything was wonderful; the service, food, atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Had occasion to enjoy this restaurannt qualityts service twice. The first time when I walked in looking to meet a friend whom it turns out wasn't there. Staff were very cheerful and helpful in directing me to an Italian restaurant nearby. After this good experience decided to try there the next night. As a walk in with no reservation they... More

We had lunch here on a wet Monday 26 August. Our waiter was excellent, knowledgeable and helpful. The food was really good and very reasonably priced. The restaurant has excellent modern decor. I wish we had more restaurants and waiters like this where I live in Kent.
