“good italian food in nice industrial settings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

This place is a great option for lunch/dinner in Vienna Old Town.
Good Italian food made from quality fresh ingredients. Great salads. Creatives menu. main courses can surprise as well. Unfortunately, I had no space for dessert, next time:)
Nice clean industrial decor, not overcrowded with details.
Friendly, relaxed service.
Off the tourist tracks.
Reasonable prices.
it is not pretentious and not super romantic:) but has nice ambience and pleasant crowd.
I would say it is hidden gem for that area.

“very unusual”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

The restaurant is located slightly off the center and mostly is visited by locals (who always knows better, I guess). The reservation is recommended on weekends. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the decor and interior are somewhat industrial because of the building being formerly used as a factory. It was hip and fun, but it's not a formal kind of dining experience, so check the pcitures before going there.
They don't have a regular menu but offer a "menu of the day" which is limited but, again, offers a slightly different view of traditional italian cuisine. The potato soup with saffron was great, pasta was very fresh and the panna cotta was delicious. Maybe the only disappointment was the absence of herbal teas, but it can be dealt with.
We paid 53 EUR for two - a fair deal considering the quality of food.
(Almost forgot to mention a guy with the most awesome beard I have ever seen who helped us with translation, as the menu was in italian).

“Italian but not as we know it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

This excellent restaurant serves Italian food but is refreshingly free of the usual tedious trappings of the Italian restaurant: the surroundings are modern, with a good deal of industrial shelving, which is more attractive than it sounds. There are staple Italian pasta dishes on the menu, cooked with real flair, and there are some specials that seem to change daily, such as rabbit, mussels, and sea-bass. The staff are genuinely helpful and knowledgeable, and the prices are reasonable. We liked this place a lot and ate there twice in five days.

“Tasty break from typical viennese food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Hilton Vienna and Expedit was close by. We went based on other trip advisor reviews and the food was excellent. We arrived close to 8pm and didn't have reservations but there were plenty of tables inside. The quality of the food was excellent and reasonably priced. Everything tasted very fresh and was well presented. The staff was also nice and they actually smile at their customers. The wait for food was a bit long since I think there was one chef in the kitchen but it was worth it for the quality of food. If we had a couple more nights in Vienna we would definitely had gone back.

“Fast casual dinning spot in the city centre.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

This is a good location if you want a cheap, fast and tasty lunch break. It's located just steps from the old town and provides outdoor or indoor seating. The lunch crowd is business oriented so the food comes out super fast all with an italian flair.
Atmosphere is casual and the service friendly, the daily specials were of high quality.
