This has been a great gourmet experience! Good food, service and atmosphere. But we walked around Budapest in vain, as the TripAdvisor map is wrong. The address is correct, but the map is wrong. Anyway, this is definitely a place we'll be visiting next time in Budapest.

Our dinner in this restaurant was superb. Service was outstanding and food was absolutely fabulous. Prices are double what I paid at other restaurants in Budapest, but this is what I expect from a fancy gourmet restaurant.

For an Italian this is absolutely an average restaurant where the menu is not even properly written in Italian which already says enough... The service is great, attentive and considerate. The food is edible but again nothing exceptional compared to the average restaurant you can find down any road in any Italian City. The place is overly expensive, we spent... More

Definitely the best Italian restaurant in Budapest, they cannot make a mistake, everything is perfect every time. High end meals, very professional and kind staff, nice atmosphere. What they provide is the very same level as Michelin start restaurants can provide in Budapest. I do not understand, why they do not have a star, they have deserved it.

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.
