“Very high quality food but poor service”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

We ate here on the recomendation of our hotel. The service was poor and the waiter seemed troubled that we had interupted him. The dishes were almost thrown down on our table with barely a word. That was the bad bit now for the good. The food was way beyond expectations in every sense. It was tasty and inventive and for me the best italian food that i have ever eaten. Because the food was SO good i am giving 5 stars as i feel it so outshone the poor service. My advice = sack the waiter.

“Great food, great service, smiles all round”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Lovely little Italian restaurant close to residential areas. We sat out on the terrace on two occasions and were met with an extensive menu well translated into English, and charming serving staff. There's even free wifi. Food was superb, beyond expectations, but make sure you check out the specials which are printed onto a label on an empty wine bottle only in Hungarian - the braisingelt (braising steak) with polenta was exquisite and melt in the mouth!
