I dont remember the service nor the food nor the prices too well anymore. All in all it must have been pretty okay, since I dont remember having a bad feeling about these aspects. And if it had been terrible service or terrible pizza or terrible prices then I would have remembered very well! But the reason why I still... More

We made a table reservation lastminute on a Friday night, with no problem, the place is easy to get to from the city centre. Food is excellent, and great selection on the menu. The service however was a little slow.

Was very friendly and... More

This place was visited specially based on TA reviews. Whilst there was no English menus available, the guy who served us just took an order based on what we asked, of course that meant we didn't know what cost it would be. My pizza arrived in good time, and was really delicious. However very disappointingly my partners food took over... More

We started with some melon and ham, then tried two kinds of pizzas (four cheeses and primavera) both delicious,great value for what you pay. The pizzas were quite big for us, but we nltoced other people asking to get their leftovers wrapped... More

Upon arrival, we asked the waiter if there was a table for 6 available. There were plenty of tables available. However, instead of showing us to a table or simply answering "yes", he told us to wait a minute in an overly aggresive and impatient manner. After a few moments, he asked us if there was a free table outside... More

Poor service, the pizza was way too salty. After telling the waiter I got this answer: we do it like that since we are open and nobody ever complained". Grab a pizza somewhere else and enjoy the Piaristenkirche...

Staying in Josefstadt

Neighborhood Profile
The eighth district is an older generation’s Vienna at its finest: and this is what makes it popular with locals of all ages. Josefstadt has theater, small independent shops, romantic passageways, neighborhood cafés with regular clientele, church squares, town palaces and shady communal gardens. Trendy hangouts have conquered distinctive places such as the Old General Hospital (Altes AKH) and the vaults of overground U6. Theater in der Josefstadt on Josefstädter Strasse is the district’s cultural epicenter. Even if your German isn’t good enough to watch a play, you can marvel at the typical Biedermeier building and take a glimpse into the foyer. Lange Gasse houses an iconic local restaurant at its corner, as well as a legendary sweet shop and a bustling neighborhood market every Saturday. For small palace atmosphere and a different view on Vienna’s history, make your way to Schönborn garden palace (Palais Schönborn), which houses the Museum of Folk and Folk Art (Volkskundemuseum). Maria-Treu-Platz, with its summer outdoor cafés facing baroque church Maria Treu, and the historic passageway of Lerchenfelder Strasse 13 hide top spots for insiders.
