Quint little Italian restaurant with great atmosphere. However, on the inside it is a little run down. Pizza was a good choice. BUT, the Hungarian goulash soup was more like a watery broth instead of the rich meaty soup that we had all over Budapest.More

Perfect location down fashion street in budapest, pizza is the best and most popular dish, we ordered the sicilia and it was delicious, the pink ravioli was also delicious, the desserts were only dissapointment. Creme brulee has no hard caramel on top as expected...and chesse...cake was also "ok"....I would def come back but focus more on pizza dishes that were amazingMore

I sat in a restaurant with my daughter and my partner in the restaurant the food was nice the service was good but as soon as we got the bill we saw that we were charged 15 percent service and I ask why? Why not...take 10 percent service and if the customer wants, he will leave an extra for the tip, but to automatically take 15 percent service is theft in my opinion, I will not go back there, nor do I recommend the exercise they did to me, it is a tourist scam!More

Well we when to this restaurant with my family to have dinner. We ordered pizza and a fettuccine Alfredo. After our order came I discovered that my Alfredo had no chicken in them, they were uncooked and literally three bites. After I called on the...waiter and told him about the uncooked pasta I also mentioned the very tiny portion. All this in a very polite manner and always with respect to them. He was kind enough to admit that their portions are indeed small. Minutes later the owner or manager (don’t now who he was exactly) came back asking for more explanations. After I told him the same story in the same way he exploded. He was shouting in frond of the tables that although he is hind enough to help me with the uncooked pasta now I tell him the portions are small. In a dimining towards me gesture he takes my food and never comes back with a menu or a new portion of food. He only came back once more to throw a plate at me to share my sons pizza. We would have left if my son wasn’t hungry and at closing time of restaurants there. Avoid at all cost!More

In the heart of the tourist area of Budapest this establishment is clearly after your money. The surrounding is elegant, the service is polite and very attending but the menu is far from authentic Italian. As most reviews indicate people eat pizza here. I couldn't...make a genuine choice and ate a hamburger. That is like going to a Hungarian restaurant in New York and eat hot dog. On top of the poor selection the prices are outrages.More
