Surroundings good, good excellent and reasonably priced. Excellent selection of wine and drinks Service also very good. BUT paid in cash and never recieved change?! Wanted the change back to add more coinage to top up tip... their loss not ours but staff should not also not presume that they are being tipped.

We went here as had good recommendations on trip advisor but to be honest we found the food pretty average. A good choice on the menu but slow service and food definitely not up to scratch for a first class restaurant.

Very good food at Magdalena Restaurant. I was there with one work colleague.
I took mushrooms with vinegar, was chopped served with toasted bread. Very good taste, but a little salty. After that I took Bass fish with spinach, this meal I really recommend for the people which like fish: very tasty and nice combination fish-spinach. There are also different kind of pizza, local Hungarian food and also I remarked some Czech/Slovakian food types.
For drinking we served draft local beer and after that a glass of local wine- very good both. But they have a large variety of wines: red, rose or white.
Service was very good: menu in English and the waiter very promptly one, they deserved the full tip.
Price for two persons was around 40 Euro for two persons which I consider that is fair.

We've chosen this place to have dinner with the help of the trip advisor app. We're ultimately grateful to this wsite for providing a really good advise for travelers. All we can say is that the food in Italian style was marvelous and absolutely Italian (as far as we may concern), the choice of wine is far beyond our expectations!!!! The interior is really a spectacular sight with those original wine shelves and cave-like high ceilings! It really is A PLACE TO VISIT and a sure 'must see' in Budapest! Besides it's an unforgetable place to have a romantic dinner! We recommend the fried camembert, the mixed tiscan meze and of course a choice of pasta and pizza! At last, the service provided, was infinite!!!!

Nice Italian cuisine and wine at reasonable price. Ideally located in the center. Good service as well, what else can you ask for?
