You must visit this wine cellar/bar stories below the Hilton Hotel in Budapest. Gabor knows his wines and picks only the best to serve. He is a fabulous host for groups.

4th time there, for dinner and lunch. Definitely the best Italian in Budapest, refined food and service whether you eat in the bistro part or in the restaurant part. Try the raviolis, meat and onion, I still can taste the flavour.

My colleagues said it was the best Italian food they had ever... More

Tender, juicy and tasy meat, which you cannot find at every place. But it was not so tender here, I had to properly cut it... More

A must visit when in Budapest! The Italian meals are almost Michelin star worthy. I'd defenitely recommend this place. Also a nice atmosphere and very polite waiters. Great option if you want to spend a night out.

It has been a few years since we last visited this long standing institution of an Italian restaurant, but to our pleasant surprise, Fausto and his team managed to raise the already high standards by quite a large margin. The tasting menu is very flexible, you can basically design your own around a few key ingredients. Gergő, the maitre d'... More

The service and food here is simply superb. Love the creativity that goes behind all of their dishes. Ordered their special five course menu and every dish was full of surprises.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
