“Great food, warm friendly service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

It's actually been a few years since my last visit, but never wrote a review... my friends are going to Budapest soon, so I decided to finally write it (sorry for the delay!)

I went to this restaurant about 5-6 times on my last visits.
I went solo, enjoyed great service and seating (not always the case when you go and eat alone somewhere!)
I went with my partner and we had terrific food and good times. We also loved the wine and the appetizers. Again, the same great service with a smile.
We went with friends and were treated as old friends!

Great pastas, loved the pizzas...
I loved their pasta carbonara! :-)

Considering the location, this is much more than merely a tourist restaurant, I noticed many locals dining there as well. We enjoyed it and look forward to going back on our next visit to Budapest!

“Disappointing touristy meal in Pest”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Large portions of unremarkable food in a busy touristy location. The starter was ok but the main course pasta very poor. They seem to confuse quality with quantity. Not recommended.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Excellent pasta for a very reasonable price (especially given the location). The owner of the restaurant is a lovely man who speaks very good English, thankfully!

“A return visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

A return visit and not intentionally just to use the little room this time. And… they remembered us! The service was delightful and the pizza confirmed exactly our impressions 3 months ago when this was as close to Italy as we’ve found. The garlic in olive oil was remarkable (homemade). The also homemade lemonade was the best we tasted, and everywhere in Budapest they make their own lemonade (ie fresh, not the commercial citrus sugar fizz).

I see ups and downs in the reviews here, but we’re still firmly behind this place. There was fuss from some smokers when they were asked politely to move to a distinctive area to smoke - two metres from their table. They found it bizarre and objected, but I’m sure they were not familiar with new draconian smoking rules in Hungary restaurants need to abide by.
