“Not very expensive and good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We ate typical Hungarian dishes and they were really good and not expensive. The restaurant is cool and the staff kind enough

“Nice Italian restaurant, big food for little money.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Nice atmosphere, good wine and the food is also well. Pizza looks very nice, but I had the Tortellini Primavera. Big portion and good red wine. Prices are ok :).

“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

A group of seven of us ate here on a Sunday evening and we all left happy. The place is nice and service was friendly but a bit on the slow side (nothing too dramatic). We ordered a few starters to share and a main course each with drinks (no wine, just beers) & coffee. Total bill amounted to just over 90 Euros which seemed like a bargain to us.
Most of us ordered off the Hungarian Specialities section of the menu and were not disappointed, the goulash soup and the pork stripes Bakony style were lovely. Pizza was very large and the Pepperoni particularly spicy.
Would go back to this place if I'm ever back in Budapest.

“Manging at Magdalena”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Nice glass fronted bistro that we chose due to the Trip Advisor sticker in the window and the recognition was deserved. Good food at a reasonable price and a good wine selection as well.
