“GOOD italian food, nice staff”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Have been here many times, like the relaxed atmosphere, the Italian food and friendly staff. The pasta with tomato and mozzarella is my favourite!

“Excellent Italian near the Synagogue.”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Everything we had here was excellent. The fish soup (an Italian bouillabase) was outstanding. Prices are high, but so is the quality of the food and the service. We would return.

“Great service and excellent pasta dishes”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

We stumbled upon Osteria by complete chance whilst looking for a restaurant quite late at night. I was entertaining 8 clients and was losing hope when we came across this charming modern restaurant. The head serveur was most welcoming indeed, he spoke great English and found us a spacious table which was perfect for our party. It was late, we took our time to order and the man was very patient indeed.

If you like liver then go for the goose liver starter, otherwise we choose the pasta with veal for the main it was superb. My clients were Parisian, often quite picky and even they found the meal to be to their liking. The wine was also good and the only complaint came after ordering the tiramasu, but to be fair the waiter told us that he had to put it together as the chef had already gone home!

Definitely worth visiting for a pleasant meal.

“Only average for us”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

After visiting the Great Synagogue, we were excited to see that Fausto's Osteria was right down the block. We had read all the fabulous reviews and quickly decided that would be our lunch spot. It is a lovely restaurant with excellent service, but to say the food is some of the best in Budapest seems like a bit of an overstatement. Granted, we did not have any pasta dishes, which seem to receive most of the praise, but I had the fish special and my husband had the beef and it was good...but just good....certainly nothing to warrant the bill.
