Michelin recommend ?

I was surprised to learn this is a Michelin recommend (2014 & 2015) restaurant when I got there around 5:30 pm. Most of Budapest restaurants will not until 6 or 7 pm. The service was great and we ordered two fish dishes (salmon and sea bass?) per waiter's suggestion. Instead of breads, they... read more

We descended just before closing time; 4 couples, all having had a fair bit to drink, all in high spirits. They found us a table on the first floor mezzanine, secluded but very nice. The staff impressed upon us the need for speed but were a delight throughout despite our slightly boisterous behaviour. The food came promptly, was delicious and... More

Not a great location on an unpromising street, but a real surprise inside. There are two parts, a fine dining restaurant, and a less formal Osteria. We ate in both and the food was excellent in each case, and in fact it appears that the menus are essentially the same. Service was friendly and un-fussy with "genuine" Italians on hand,... More

Looking through Trip Advisor for a dinner restaurant, we were unable to get a reservation for the #1 restaurant in our area. We then tried another top rated restaurant that was located near our apartment, and choose Fausto's. We ate in the restaurant section rather than the Osteria section. The décor was clean and inviting, with a very limited menu.... More

This place serves great food and well priced. We went as a couple and we were well impressed with the offer on the menu and the atmosphere in the restaurant.

The Italian meal was fresh and inventive. Beautiful home made pasta, lovely flavours in the fish main, and a meringue ice cream to die for. The service was friendly and efficient. The dining room is bright and modern. Menu selection is not great but made up for by the high quality of the offerings. Highly recommended.

Found this wonderful restaurant just up the road from the Dohany Synagogue and had an exceptional lunch. Top quality Italian cuisine. Sophisticated. Brilliant service. Will eat here again. Makes a welcome change from the local dishes!

This fine dining restaurant should be listed as one of the top fusion Italian restaurants in Budapest. Nice ambience, impeccable service, gorgeous food with reasonable price will cheer your visit up. A must if you visit Budapest.

We were recommended to come here. We ate in the Osteria and started with a selection of bread, great, then they brought more! Small portions, but delicious. Great ham and cheese starter, great ravioli, fantastic cake. Limited beers but we came for the food.
