Nice decoration and service. Delicious and fresh made Italian food. Bruschetta, Carpaccio, many pizzas, we go for vegi ones and aubergine + zucchini one was perfect with garlic and spicy olive oil . They made and cook Pizzas in front of you. Fresh salads. tagliatelle with Porcini mushroom was OK. Nice Italian Vines.

My family and I were visiting Budapest for the first time and we came to this place based on Trip Advisor recommendations and ranking. For this reason, I want to help others avoid the same mistake and provide and OBJECTIVE review.

The first time we tried to come here, we stood outside for a good 7 minutes. Host/hostess was nowhere to be found and so we walked away. I really wanted to try the sicilian fare so we went back, despite our experience the previous day. We received our dishes. My husband got a pizza which was pretty good but it... More

We (myself and 2 friends) loved this place so much, we went there twice during our 3 night stay in Budapest! It was right round the corner from our hotel in Pest on Kiraly street and we thought it looked like a lovely restaurant so we booked for the first night. (it does get busy so it's probably worth booking,... More

Siculus coquus et Sicula mensa...that is the Sicilian cook and Sicilian table. According to a Roman saying this is the secret to a healthy life. They came, saw and conquered: the Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Angevins, Hapsburgs, the Bourbons...Yes, every one of them! All these people, they left something in Sicily - Trinacria, for example, belonging to Greek mythology, the Gorgon in the middle and the three legs as tips to protect the island. The Arabs, skilled breeders of goats and lambs, and with them their milk, processed caciocavallo, provola pecorino. The testimony of the Saracens from the "sweet tooth" in Sicily is a legacy left by the nuns who handed down the memory, and it is thanks to them that today we have the real dough, cassata and Siculus coquus et Sicula mensa "cannoli". With the succession of all these peoples, Sicily today has a very diverse cultural heritage, that leaves a lasting impression for life, the memories of all those travelers who have had the opportunity and the chance to visit it. Between the oleanders and colorful bougainvillea, under the shade of the thick foliage of olive trees, savoring the delicacies of Sicilian cuisine, including fresh fish of the sea, the warm sun that enriches and gives an unmistakable flavor to fruits and vegetables, sipping her wine noblest, is unforgettable. Equally memorable are the inhabitants of this fantastic island, famous for their warm welcome and availability, full of life, with their kindling a sense of humor, with the inimitable "coppola" placed on their heads, with a joyful noise you preach good appetite. This atmosphere we are ready to offer here in Budapest! "Baciamo le mani!"(kind of typical Sicilian regards) Salvo Sgroi and La Coppola Team

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
