Don't look further if you are looking for a proper Italian treat in Budapest. Both their pizza and pasta deserves multiple visits.

As you remember the non-touristic places in Rome - you walk in, there is someone smiling at you and joking as offering a place - in Italian but it just makes it better. Simple menu with the basics, though it is always worth checking the daily offer. Home-made pasta - not written only but in fact! Prepare to come back... More

Could tell that it was going to be a traditional Italian dinner since both staff and customers were speaking Italian. Since we got there for an early dinner on a Wed night, we were able to get...

Apparently We were extremely lucky to get a table in this Pizzaria as a walk in, but boy were we glad we managed to. The Pizza's didn't arrive very quickly but when they came they were truly outstanding. The wine was very reasonably priced and of excellent quality and the overall cost was remarkably reasonable given the quality of the... More
