Have been there several times, in two different trips, the last one in Dec 2016 (once with my wife. The last time with a group of 20 friends). Lunch and Dinner. Good location, in the middle of Budapest "walking street". Friendly staff. Good and variate...More

Near our hotel, so we had passed a few times. Dropped in for lunch. Lovely staff and great food. Pizza base thin and crisp. Perfect! Also had squid and spinach starter. Perfection. Great location for people watching. Prices very reasonable for food, service and location.

English language are not their best, Italian are, but we are not in Italy. Expensive place and they add service charge to the bill afterwards- remember that before you think about tipping. I think they just live off all the tourists. To bad.

I was a bit of a party pooper and not too keen on trying any Hungarian cuisine, so was delighted to see good reviews for this Italian and it turned out to be the best meal of my trip! I ordered carbonara, which was one...More

Just eaten at this restaurant - the food and service were ok but not commensurate with the prices. Refused to serve tap water to the table, added automatic 12% service charge (in my experience, good restaurants are able to earn this from their customers rather...More

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
