We accidently found this Italian restaurant in downtown Budapest. Looks like a trattoria garden, inside is outside. At the entrance they have a shop with home made bakery and Italian products so on our way out we bought some good stuff for home. We ordered a pizza with smoked salmon and grilled garlic prawns. They both were fantastic and delicious, ingredients were all fresh. They serve very good coffee too. Service was kind and fast. We surely will return when we go to that neighbourhood.

Friends recommended this Italian place, we recently had dinner there. The food was very delicious, the offered large portions,
The service was (as usually in Hungary) slow and indifferent.
One more thing, I'll only be back in the summer, because the place is huge with large windows - they did not heat up the place at all, we were really cold.

Simple italian cousine but well prepared good materials on your plate. The staff was a bit scattered -as they lived their private life zealously- which filled the place with life...but gave our antipasta (loin carpaccio) a long wait, and got our pizza served only somewhat and not owen hot. Anyway, good food and real people. Just ask them to be quick with your pizza.

Decent food but a a 45 minute wait for a 2 pizzas and a salad is too long. It wasn't even busy and upon leaving it was clear the cook was taking many smoke breaks. Wouldn't go back.
