Found this restaurant on our first night in Budapest on TripAdvisor since it had good ratings and close to our hotel. Quaint setting. 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...

Budapest does Italian very well. There are a handful of Italian kitchens, from expensive to reasonable that deliver exceptional authentic quality to your table.

Wife and I found this place on TA and were glad we did. Great little place. Quieter in the AM. Got the eggs and Ham, they brought bread out with it. Best coffee on our trip so far. We may hit it again before we depart Budapest.

Small and authentic italian restaurant. The service was very kind, the owners are italian. I ordered pizza and my other 2 friends too , the 3 pizzas were really tasty and crunchy. I can say that is the one or the second best pizza of budapest. It was cheap so i highly recommend it.
