“very quick and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

I was served so quick the main dish here, so I decided to write a good review.
Literally, 15 mins and your duck is there.

Also panacota was perfect. Really.

Recommended.

“Good Italian in a city not know for good Italian food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Sit outside and you if you like to people watch, you have a front row seat. Pasta dishes are really the draw here. We eat here for luch everytime we are in town. A bit pricy, but the mushroom pasta and barca bianca are two favorites. The grilled squid is great, but for the price, give me some squid! When ordering bottled water, order the Hungarian water or you will pay triple for Evian. Food is very good, though we view this more as a lunch spot than dinner. The name is what it is.

“Gulash wasn't so good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

We walked in because the restaurant looks nice and has a good atmosphere. The mistake was probably ordering a Hungarian dish in an Italian restaurant, but anyway, being in Budapest we expected it to be good. I am no chef, but judging from the taste and texture, both the gulash and the noodles were from a bag. Add hot water, stir for 3 minutes and here is your dish. It was horrible, but since we were hungry we didn't have much time to complain. Afterwards we had to go eat again to a fast food restaurant.
The other meals, might be better, they looked nice on the other tables.

“great italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

I assume it was the owner who received us very welcoming and friendly. We just had a quick dinner but enjoyed it very much. I had the traditional lasagna, my friend had a spaghetti carbonara and both were very good, if not to say excellent. Portions however are not so big, so if you are very hungry, I recommend you order a started (I cannot say how any of them are). After ordering we had to wait quite long for our beers, but the owner came back and apologized and immediately it was forgotten :)
I can only recommend this place, great choice!
