it's a good italian restaurant. the pasta bolognese was good cooked and delicious. we also had pizza. the bottom of the pizza was a little bit to crispy, was a challenge to cut it with the knife. i say that is nothing special because is a basic expectation that the food should be well prepared - at this place it's...

My wife and I dined at OK Italia a few days ago. We have been there many many times and were always very pleased with both the quality of the food and the service. Not so at the last visit. We both ordered lasagna which we used to love; this time it was still good but not like in the... More

The most famous and common Italian spaghetti Carbonara is totally spoiled in this restaurant. The guest gets the plate of boiled "al dente" pasta with some bacon pieces and NO CARBONARA SOUCE. The souse feels like boiled milk. A tonn of parmesan helps to survive this dish, but still, i would reccomend OKEY ITALIA to change the recepie.

We found this place by accident, and I am happy we walked in after we read the menu on the street. The restaurant offers very good Italian food, but also offers Hungarian meals. The food has a very good presentation and the service was nice but a bit slow (nothing to worry about of course). I also highly value the... More

I have two things to thank this restaurant for in particular, but both boil down to it being staffed by great people. I was in Budapest accompanying my father, who was having surgery and so I was alone a lot. This place was next to our hotel and I went in one night to see if I could just have... More
