“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

The food was quite good - we had dinner here 3 times during our stay in Budapest, it was an easy walk from our hotel, the Grand Corinthia. The spaghetti and pizza were good, as was their wine. It was very sweet, hence its name Dolce Novella Monteveidi. The service was slow but the food was worth it. If you're looking for a nice restaurant while in Budapest, here's the place to go.

“Not good and not very Italian”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The restaurant looked good and the service was OK, but the food was not tasty. I had penne with cheese and ham sauce, the ham was stale and the cheese not discoverable. My partners meal was equally disappointing, looked like something coming from the freezer rather than freshly cooked.

“Fab food great value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

We were staying in the Corinthia Hotel and this was right on our doorstep. We had two beautiful courses each (Try the duck!!!), wine and beer and it all came to around 20 euro. Very good value, excellent service (if a little surly at times) lovely atmosphere. I would definitely recommend it.

“Visit October 2012”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Ate here twice during our stay. The first time we had the goulash which was well flavoured with paprika and very tasty. On our second visit we had pork paprikash and pork medallions, both were well cookedand the meat was lovely and tender. Great value for money. Friendly staff.
