“Cute family restaurant”
Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I tried this restaurant on the first night that we were in Vienna. We started with the octopus carpaccio and the bean soup with porcini mushrooms. Both were nicely prepared and really yummy. My husband then ordered the seafood risotto and I had the seafood pizza. Both were very well done and the portion sizes were huge! The highlight for me were the profiteroles! They were so light and airy. Not too sweet either even though they were covered in chocolate and rum syrup. Service was perfect! The owner came to our table to explain the menu to us and to recommend some of their specials. His English as outstanding.

“Fine Italian Kitchen in the heart of Vienna”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

After a week of gulasch, veal, wurst and beer we had to have an Italian fix. Our hotel recommended the restaurant and it was a winner. Near to Spittelburg da Giovanni is run by a young pair who were totally committed to our satisfaction. The host selected excellent wines for us and spen time telling about the specials. Our dinners werw terrific and the prices fair.

“Worth a detour”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

The chance of a tourist stumbling over this place is almost nil,but it's not really that far out of the way and definitely worth a visit if you're in the museum quarter.
Good food at reasonable prices - not an easy combination to find in Vienna.

“Best homemade pasta”
Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

Went for dinner. A bit of a hike and with sore feet and a little uncertainty on our minds regarding the reliability of previous reviews. We secured the second last table at 7pm. Friendly helpful waitress translated the menu, a little lost in translation but not a problem. My pizza was very good, ham and sausage with a little spice. My wife's pasta special was magnificent, Tortelloni al tartuffo con porcini. The homemade pasta was large and generously filled, and was cooked perfectly. The creamy mushroom reduction with a hint of parmagiano was one of the best I have had. The menu focuses on pasta, pizza and fish with a couple of meat dishes and 4 or so deserts. Good size serves. The pannacotta with berries and mango was very good. All in all an excellent meal at a very reasonable price. After you have done the traditional, put this one as a must do on your list
