We are staying at a vacation rental above this coffee shop. I met one of my co-workers for a quick coffee who lives here and he agreed it was his new favorite spot in town. Walk into this store and you are immediately northern Italy. Gian runs the place and is over the top happy to see you and make... More

We were staying at the Zsa Zsa apartments (reviewed in TripAdvisor) just above this restaurant. It was great having such a good and reasonably priced restaurant right below us. The cappuccinos were excellent and the food was good. We found the service to be very good and friendly. I have read the few poor reviews of this restaurant and to... More

This is a tiny restaurant-café with colorful walls and warm atmosphere. The home made pasta was absolutely delicious. Pizzas are huge and we also tried the salmon-orange salad which was good. The lemonade is not as good as most are in Budapest. The welcome is cordial and family like. It boasts a tiny terrace if you can forget about the... More

Thank you very much for visiting our place, but rewievs like this are completely useless. No information about what was missing or what was not according to your expectations. Where there are people working, errors can occure. If you decide to write a rewiev take your time and write two more lines to better explain what really happened... Anyway... All... More

Normally I don ´t like to go in italian restaurants when I am travelling. This was an exception, but I really appreciated. The staff is so kind, and the food is really italian. Unfortunately I had to stay there only for a short time, but now I know where to go during my next trip to Budapest. I tried pizza... More

Warm and friendly; After the first visit 18 m ago, we came daily for excellent coffee (Thursday's bruschetta with home made bread and superb flavours). Once for dinner, tortellini Sicilian kept hubby happy, I enjoyed salmon and salad, delicious red wine Mario recommended. Service every time was warm and friendly, like eating with family.

We ate here on our first night in Budapest after a long day travelling. It was busy but we got a table in the front. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Shared mixed salad and then a pasta dish each. All very tasty. Good bottle of wine and the coffee was sublime. Very reasonable, about £20. It's not really... More
