I'm organising a party of people for next year's Budapest Half and being a planning type person, I wondered if anyone could suggest a sort of mid range Italian restaurant that would serve lots of choices of pasta for carb loading and which would be able to take a booking of about 20 or so people?

Many thanks!

Hi Rachael2001,

Here are a few ideas, although sitting 20 will be tough...:

1. Okay Italia - two locations close to Nyugati metro stop in middle of the city. This restaurant - which serves fair priced dishes has been around for at least 10 years, usually fairly full come dinner time. When I want a basic good pasta meal, I head here. Website = http://www.okayitalia.hu/

2. Trattoria Tuscana - excellent new Italian restaurant situated on the Pest side along river not far from Vaci itca. The food is excellent, with a wide variety. Clearly, either the chef is Italian or has been Italian trained. One of my favorite restaurants (of any kind) in the city. On the reasonable side, especially coming from UK. Full dinner for 2 with bottle wine about 50-60 Sterling. Website = http://www.toscana.hu/index_en.html

3. Trattoria PomoD'oro - Another excellent Italian restaurant that is new to the heart of the city. Simply fantastic food. One that might be enjoyed more after the run because it's so good you should savor, versus "load up" carbs for the run! Website = http://www.pomodorobudapest.com/

One more idea - the NY Palace is a legit 5-star Italian hotel that has a good restaurant with significant seating capacity. While not inexpensive, they may work with you to hold a special pre-run meal? Website = http://volll.at.11am.hu/boscolo/

Best of luck in your search and wishing you a good time in next year's run!
