Very small restaurant - more a delicatessen. (approx. 15 covers) Suggest booking. Chef will tell you what is on offer. Italian food. Delicious. Portions small but very tasty. Starter of charcuterie and cheeses from Italy - tasty. Have the lime and chilli cheesecake for desert. Delicious. They are very knowledgeable about wine - do enjoy experimenting with their wide list. Only down side was that some people smoke and as the restaurant is very small, you are aware of the smoke. In the UK we do not have smoking in public places, so it is always noticeable when you come across smokers especially in a restaurant.

We came across this tiny little wine bar / restaurant by chance on our first evening in Vienna and what a find it was!
Obviously we had not made a reservation, but a lovely couple who were there to enjoy a glass of wine (or two) gave up their table for us. I can't remember when we've been made to feel more welcomed, with the owner Wolfgang magically coming up with two simple but wonderful dishes for us- and a cheese cake to die for! The place was full - I don't think there was more than six small tables and a bar - but there was a lovely warm atmosphere and everyone was in a good mood, happily enjoying their evening and I imagined it being like this every night of the year. As to prove my point and having been made so welcomed we booked (this time) a table for our last night. As we'd anticipated the place was buzzing again and we were again made to feel welcomed and having more time we enjoyed a relaxed meal accompanied by local Austrian wine recommended to us by Wolfgang who was, as ever, attentive and happily took time out to talk to us.
This was Viennese hospitality at its best - thank you Wolfgang and your helper and your customers for making our stay in Vienna that little bit more special.
We cannot recommend this wine bar / restaurant highly enough - but book to avoid disappointment and take cash as cards not accepted!! (Cash machine nearby!)

This wine bar/restaurant is mostly specialized in Italian food and wine, offering a good choice in terms of red and white wines.
Dishes were very well cooked (pasta was al dente and the soup jota was tasty and rich in flavour) and the prices reasonable. Maybe, just the price of the wine was a bit expensive. reservation recommended, since the local is not that big.
Globally, we really enjoyed the dinner!

Excellent wine and cheese, great atmosphere and service. The perfect cure for a cold night in Vienna is a glass of local white wine and a plate of Italian cheeses.

The restaurant is nice and essential. The service is informal and speedy. The Italians meals are tasty and based on quality ingredients. However the price is expansive related to the portions and the choises on menu are poor. Is good italian flavour in Vienna. Must try!
