This is the local neighborhood restaurant you dream of. Austrian not Italian specialties despite the name. Meals were to die for ( warm Octopus, Schnitzel, and desserts that make you want to regret you don't live here). Service super professional while unassuming. Ambiance is very casual. A real gem. Highly recommended.

We came for dinner. We were disappointed about our table as we were put into the front room where it has feel like sitting in the hall or kitchen. Not nice environment. The waiter we had was typical viannese which means not really friendly. When we got the bill there were couple of dishes on it which we didn't have:-(... More

We dined outside as the Vienna summer night was pretty hot. Their food was really good. The waiter was a bit stiff and we didn't see much smile.

They have a creative approach to the viennese kitchen that makes it taste as good as can be. My favorite place to recommend and show around. Try the warm octopus salad with the traditional wild chive mayonnaise - breathtaktingly soft inside and crunchy outside!

a sunny day in Vienna, strolling around the university, try your luch and turn in one of the small side streets - and then you see a cosy terrasse on the pavement, bordered with plants and you are greeted by a friendly waiter. No, no problem if you are on your own, take a seat and enjoy. And I did.... More

A Small, cozy Austrian cousine restaurant where we preferred for our business dinner. The wooden seats with small pillows were the first interestong detail that took my attention. We ordered potato cream soup with mushroom was very delicious. The most expansive dish of the main course, a specially prepared veal meat with 26.90 euro tag was so delicious so that... More

At lunch in a different restaurant I was sharing a table with a delightful Austrian lady who I asked to recommend a restaurant for dinner. She kindly rang her husband who gave me the name of two restaurants, one of them being Appiano. It was within 5 minutes walk of our hotel ( the Hilton) so we went there. We... More

This is a typical Vienniese restaurant with excellent food and good service, we enjoyed the dinner there, the only small concern was the signle bottle of red wine we ordered-there was not a second one. But in general - oustanding!

We decided to go to Appiano after reading such great reviews. I knew it had been closed for the summer but they are open now and better than ever! We had an absolutely amazing meal of tuna steak and boiled beef. For appetizers we chose the octopus and grilled watermelon caprese salad. Both were absolutely fantastic! Service was flawless and...

We tried to dine here last night and were greeted by a note on the door stating in German and English that the cook was having back surgery and that the restaurant would be closed until September.

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
