We've had some tasty pasta and richly topped pizza. I appreciate free tap water. I also liked communicative and helpful waiters ready to advise us about the food.

We had pizza, salad, desert an coffee. All were very tasty. In these times I may mention that they also have a proper hand deisinfectant in the toilets! Perfect!

This place is my favorite restaurant in Italy... sorry, vienna ;). I come back here at least every month since I started living in Vienna. Fantastic pizza, fantastic antipasti, fantastic bruschetta! But most of all a very nice host that makes you feel relaxed and...enjoy this reasonably priced food and drinks. Salute!More

Looks as Typical Italian place in Austria. Unfortunately pizza and other ordered food were average. Service was good.

We arrived at the restaurant which was 1/2 full, no reservation so we were given a choice of two tables. We don't drink so just wanted water with dinner and when owner delivered it said "here you will like it, its free". Pizza was underwhelming,...blah. He never asked if we wanted dessert or coffee so we left and had this elsewhere. By the time we left his restaurant was still only half full. No wonder!. If you want a great Italian meal with wonderful ambiance, pleasant waiters, go to I Ragazzi, close by on Bugasse. Make a reservation, its always full and wonderful!More

Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries,
arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde
shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with
cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make
for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and
art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at
Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a
perfect hangout on a warm summer evening.
