Stopped for pizza and it was just okay. I expected a bit better than what was provided. Too cheesy with an unpleasant taste of one type. The crust was thin which I liked. Just wish it would have had some sauce to temper the cheese.

This was very disappointing. We came here on the strength of the trip adviser reviews and had two tasteless calzones (which were not marked as calzones). We were the only two customers at 8pm on a Saturday night and the two HUGE TV screens were entertaining the staff with football matches.

I'm not sure how this restaurant got rave reviews, it was barely passable for us. Oh and it's run by Hungarian owners, not Italian ones. Although they were very friendly, they do not serve authentic Italian food.

I wouldn't return.

Not particularly easy to find but worth visiting.
Just spectaculaer setting and good kitchwn. The quality of the food is excellent ... mozarella from Naples. Dinner for two, comprising antipasti, pasta with black truffles and a frutto di mare risotto came to around 50 €. The only downside is that 2 glasses of a red wine came to 10 Euros ... I recommend to ask the price of the wine before they start pouring

Decided to check this place out the other day as it seemed too good to be true to have a good italian in Budapest.
We didn't have a reservation, but we managed to sneak into a table that was reserved later. :D
The food was very good. As good of italian as you get at most good places elswhere in italian towns. We had a literally huge and home made calzone, with real italian ham on it. We also had two fruity drinks and 2 beers. The bill was $40 USD which is good.At least we were full when we left and the service was good.
I still cant believe they have a good italian in Budapest after so many terrible „trattorias”... good for them for making it happen.

Smart Sicilian restaurant, some dishes with fusion of traditional cuisine, with extensive wine list. Seven of us sat in a pleasant side room in a front of a huge projector, which was the part of the bar scene, with italian foodball. To my taste, slightly pretentious menu and fussy dishes, though the rest us were impressed. Certainly a quality ambience. Prices at the middle of reasonable, so just OK. Reservation recommended.
