The food was delicious. The service is excellent and the prices are reasonable.
Very different from traditional Hungarian food.

“Service is awesome and food is tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

Turned up at busy lunch and was seated straight away in the Osteria. We were in casual clothes and felt a bit out of place as there were a lot of people on business lunches (we went on Monday). The food was tasty and good quality - portions were smaller than Hungarian standards, but quality definitely made up for it.
Service is brilliant - waiters are attentive, always willing to help. That really made the visit - thank you.

“Like Grandma's Ravioli”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

I was recently in Budapest for business and thought that I had found all the good restaurants during my week stay. I was referred to Fausto's and was so impressed by the staff and the food.
The wine selection was complimentary to the rack of lamb and homemade sausage and polenta ravioli!! The key to the ravioli was the cheese sauce with basil to completely make it old school!! Excellent combination. Can't wait to return and thanks to our impressive waiter Csaba!!!

“Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

The best of...Great environment, staff courtesy, variety in the dishes. High elegance but not heavy. Much indicated for impressive situations. Fairly expensive but limitated, considering the high quality of food.

“Best dining experience in Budapest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

We were fortunate to rent an apartment near this restaurant and the beautiful Dohany Street Synagogue. Our landlord recommended Fausto's and we are so happy we dined there on our last night in Pest. Everything was wonderful; the service, food, atmosphere. Highly recommended.
