There are many restaurants in the Spittelberg district of Vienna but most serve very similar food so after a few days in Austria we were looking for something different. The Osteria da Giovanni is in a small side street off of Siebensterngasse which is on the 49 tram route which also passed near our hotel so we tried it. Antipasti misti for two was just what we wanted with a variety of tastes. It was a warm eving and a large plateful so a carafe of white wine disappeared and we switched to red to go with our splendidly spicy penne allarrabiata.
Dont let the slightly scruffy appearence of Sigmundsgasse and even some bits of the Osteria if you get taken through to the garden (courtyard) area at the back put you off. The service is friendly and the food delicious.
