A friend and I were walking around in the neighbourhood and wanted to have something light before a concert in Laieszhalle, which is nearby. We told the waiter that we have altogether an hour, and the food arrived accordingly, after less than 10 minutes that we ordered. We had pizza and tagliatelle with forest mushrooms. Two simple yet very good... More

Accept no creditcard?! Restaurant in West Europe 2016. Not serviceminded at all, not even a hello. To order food took like forever. Not a smile from one of the 10ish people that works at the restaurant. Has potential with a great location near the centre outside a huge fair.

The Karo area has plenty to offer in all terms, it's the neighbourhood of the young and alternative, always very colourful and worth a stroll! Therefore, one can find cosy restaurants there and this one, near the Congress Centre and the U2 station, is worth a stop for lunch! Their burrata is superb, just like in Italy! I had a... More

Had a lovely afternoon. Food was great and the best service. They even created a nice bed for our little daughter who fell asleep before dinner. Highly recommended!

This is the type of restaurant everyone wants in their neighbourhood. Local, simple, friendly. Food is rustic Italian. Prices are low. Service is effective and attentive, yet very friendly. I had a classic, mixed salad of greens and a Vitello Tonnato. Both dishes very fresh and tasty. I also had a caraffe of the house red wine. At the price... More

Everything you would hope for in a trattoria, good value for money Italian food made with fresh produce. We walked in for lunch and discovered this local favourite. Busy for a good reason! The handwritten menu insert with the daily specials is a tad difficult to decipher, but authentic.

We had a great evening here. We struggled a bit as the specials menu was handwritten (by a doctor?) and our German/Italian was a bit rusty but the food was all delicious. Service was excellent and we would definitely return.

We visited this place suggested by a friend who previously visited it. The menu had around 15 options and was well balanced, we tried two different pastas and we didn't regret it. The ambiance is quite nice, the service is great and gives a feeling of a family restaurant in southern Italy. Prices are also quite good for the quality.... More
