Average food, but nice setting with a real potential if run properly. Waitress very uninterested plonked the plates on the table in an almost empty restaurant so not busy didnt take the time to smile or make polite conversation. When the meal finish we weren't...offered another drink or ask if we needed to see the sweet menu. You don't make money or repeat customers with a lack of interest in your customers. So we paid and left totally under whelmed.More

It was my pleasure to visit the restaurant again. Place was busy as always. My tagliatelle porcini, primitivo as well as the service were great.

We went by chance on a rainy evening and were not mistaken! Nice atmosphere, helpful staff and amazing food! I especially want to advise Tiramisu - this is the most delicious Tiramisu that I have ever tried!

We've eaten there and ordered many times from them. Everything was always delicious, fresh and rich! Now we almost never order from another restaurant.

We use to order and pick up our Italian food there as it is just around the corner where we live, and I have to admit that we really like it, since the restaurant is offering a huge choice of dishes (antipasti, pasta, pizza, meat,...fish, ...) and always very qualitative, fresh, served in big portions; service is always charmant :) and dedicated. l'Italie a deux pas...More

Worst ever! Be careful! The pasta is very bad and I found something inside it. Thay didn't care about it... Borzasztóan túlfőzött, íztelen és még mosogatószívacs darabka is fogadott. Az ügyfélszolgálat rá sem hederített. Aki csak teheti, kerülje!

After a year we returned to this authentic Italian restaurant. It's close to West Train Station, you can easily get by public transport (or on foot). At first we wanted to sit outside because of the Covid19-situation, but it was a bit noisy and rainy...so we went inside. At about 3.p.m there were only a few guests so it was safe. The staff was fast, friendly and perfect as earlier and we ate tasty traditional Italian pasta again. Food and drink was excellent, I recommend it.More

Tired after a long day visiting and discovering sites of Budapest, and close to our hotel we located this Italian restaurant. Usually, a bit sceptical that an good Italian restaurant away from Italy might not be that good - but we were going to be...disappointed. Food was exceptional, service was excellent, and we even returned back the following day for lunch. First meal was pasta - which was gorgeous, and the second time around we had pizza - once more typical pizza. Highly recommendedMore

The service at this restaurant is appalling. It took for ever to be seating and then about 15 minutes to be asked for even a drinks order. The attitude and level of ignorance of the staff was incredible. The owner was generally rude and abrasive....After being told that the combination of toppings which I wanted on my pizza was not acceptable to him and would apparently never be fashioned in an Italian kitchen, he mercifully did acquiesce to allowing garlic oil, but It was explained to me upon his return to the table after an impromptu and quite dramatic disappearance mid conversation, that I would need to add it myself after the pizza had been served; the statement being punctuated with the slamming of a jug containing the oil in front of me. We ordered garlic bread to accompany our main courses and found it to be very cold and stale. It was clearly supposed to be at least warm as it had been cooked. I had noticed that a basket which had been mostly untouched had been cleared away from the table next to us only moments earlier and although I can not not prove it, I feel that it was the same bread and it had been recycled to us. When we explained that it was cold, the girl who had seated us originally, snatched it and took it away. A few moments later she returned with about half of the bread missing with the remains slightly warmed up. There was no apology from the waitress and we were made to feel that our presence was something of an inconvenience to them. Give them a miss.More
