Description: Siculus coquus et Sicula mensa...that is the Sicilian cook and Sicilian table. According to a Roman saying this is the secret to a healthy life. They came, saw and conquered: the Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Angevins, Hapsburgs, the Bourbons...Yes, every one of them! All these people, they left something in Sicily - Trinacria, for example, belonging to Greek mythology, the Gorgon in the middle and the three legs as tips to protect the island. The Arabs, skilled breeders of goats and lambs, and with them their milk, processed caciocavallo, provola pecorino. The testimony of the Saracens from the "sweet tooth" in Sicily is a legacy left by the nuns who handed down the memory, and it is thanks to them that today we have the real dough, cassata and Siculus coquus et Sicula mensa "cannoli". With the succession of all these peoples, Sicily today has a very diverse cultural heritage, that leaves a lasting impression for life, the memories of all those travelers who have had the opportunity and the chance to visit it. Between the oleanders and colorful bougainvillea, under the shade of the thick foliage of olive trees, savoring the delicacies of Sicilian cuisine, including fresh fish of the sea, the warm sun that enriches and gives an unmistakable flavor to fruits and vegetables, sipping her wine noblest, is unforgettable. Equally memorable are the inhabitants of this fantastic island, famous for their warm welcome and availability, full of life, with their kindling a sense of humor, with the inimitable "coppola" placed on their heads, with a joyful noise you preach good appetite. This atmosphere we are ready to offer here in Budapest! "Baciamo le mani!"(kind of typical Sicilian regards) Salvo Sgroi and La Coppola Team

At the first time I was invited to La Coppola to business Christmas dinner. I like Italian food very much,but typical Sicilian food's I never tried earlier in Hungary,just in Sicily,when I was visited in year 2007. I loved those people,food's, sea,beach,towns in Sicily. And this lovely restaurants reminds me I am in Sicily.The pictures on the wall,and the tastes in the food's....nice mediterran feeling.Salvo (the owner),who is a really sicilian man come from C'efalu (most beautiful city in Sicily-for me) very kind and helpful,and very funny (he is in the restaurants usually) and help to chose a good food,if you don't know which will be the best :) ! Hmmm.. very good,to be here. Little Sicily in Budapest ! It was a good X-mas dinner with colleges,thanks. I visited afterwards with friends as well. Visit it !!!!

Went here on a Sunday evening, not too busy, outside tables nearly all full but very quiet inside. Service was good to start with and the pizzas were excellent but very difficult to get attention afterwards. Two groups of 5 or 6, one outside and one inside, got all the service. When we did get a chance to ask for another glass of wine we found there was no chianti left, in an Italian restaurant! Food was good and prices reasonable but service was not very attentive.

Dear customer,
We are very glad to read You!
I am sorry for what happened and we invite You to try us again, concerning to the Chianti, we work actually around 60 wineries and more tnan 180 different varieties of wine between red and white, so if for some assortment bottle ends unfortunately can happen, we strive to keep our inventory more than up dated, with your careful investigation you'll definitely notice that only at the entrance there are about 50 cases of wine, seize the opportunity to drink another glass of wine!
Best regards
Salvo Sgroi and La Coppola team

The first impression was even topped by the service and the food....the card in sicilian dialect and the Limoncello after dessert made this picture perfect. Go there and enjoy...!

Food, wines and the service are excellent. I have tried lots of foods from the menu and everything was really delicious. I love it!! Best one. In the end of June we celebrated a family event there and we were really satisfied. Everything was excellent, we had lots of fun. The owner, Salvo was really nice and friendly, he came to our table and said a few nice words. Best choice you MUST try.

Everyone who's planning to visit Budapest has to go to this restaurant. Seriously their food is just perfect and you can't decide if you're in Budapest or Sicilly at the moment. They're kind and helpful and the prices are really good.
