This is a very nice italian restaurant close to the city center. We had lunch there and paid 27 EUR. The food was very good and the atmosphere and service too.

There are two halves to this restaurant. One is fine dining and the other is a more casual bistro (Osteria), but still classy. The fine dining menu is offered in both areas, but the Osteria menu is only for the bistro. We chose the bistro, as earlier in the day we had seen a couple of dishes we both liked... More

Lovely place! We went to the Osteria for lunch on a weekday, there were very few people (which is not a good sign), but the place looked inviting enough. Greeted by friendly waiters we were seated at a nice table with comfortable chairs. For starter we had the Grilled vegetables carpaccio with fresh goat cottage cheese, it was fresh, with... More

I have become a regular vistor to the restaurant for bussiness lunches, as it is always excellent. The ambience is stylish, the employees are always extremely polite and helpful, the menu is very varied and the food excellent. Very good wines too and a relaxed but not too noisy atmosphere. One of the better places in Budapest to go to... More

This Italian restaurant is quite expensive for Budapest. The food, however, was lovely, but the portions are quite small. The service is very good. Having the wine decanted was new for me!! It was not a vintage bottle, but the wines generally are expensive. Could not afford to eat here regularly, but nice for a special occasion.

There are two sections to this restaurants, a formal and casual side. We chose the casual side and the atmosphere was very nice. The appetizer and dessert I had were excellent. My entree, which was eggplant parmesan, was the the smallest portion I could ever imagine. It was also overcooked and lacking in substance. I would recommend this restaurant but... More

We really loved Budapest and our appreciation was only increased by our visit to this restaurant . It really exhibits the best in service and produce that we have experienced for a long time. I had read about it on TA before and could not find it on our first night, but it was worth the search and we dined... More

We only went here when our other choices were not available - thankfully that happened as this was so much better than anything else we would have chosen. The restaurant is more formal than we expected but was wonderful. Modern design to the space with an international quality menu - seriously, you could find such a restaurant in New York... More
