Food was average, lasagne in particular was dry. When we asked for the check. The waiter told us the price and provided no bill. We were in a hurry and paid and placed coins on the table which he came and took while we sat there. Now from reading reviews, we feel scammed as we were overcharged when we recalculate.... More

We did not really like the interior but have no other remarks besides that. The staff was very friendly and served us with a smile for the entire evening. Pizza was awesome, would definitely recommend. On top of that it is absolutely not expensive! Will come back!

We came across this "restaurant" by chance, tripadvisor reviews were ok thus we decided to stay; we were 4 adults and 3 children. We're Italian and can ensure that nothing here could be thought to be Italian except the name. Forget the service and also the food: pizza as mentioned by waiter was unfrozen, pasta over cooked. Finally...I do not... More

My husband and I make a point to eat at La Norma every time we visit Vienna, which has been three times now. The owner is very nice and remembers us every time we go. It's a tiny place inside, but there is ample outdoor seating when the weather permits. The risotto is always on-point and my husband always gets... More

We ate here twice during our stay in Vienna. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Because of its location you can sit outside in the square without being disturbed by any traffic. The Aperol Sprotzers are great!

When we asked for the bill, the guy came back and told us the amount verbally, which is weird since he should have brought the check. The amount was higher than what we expected so we asked for the check. The amount on the check was less than what he told us at the beginning, he said that he rounded... More

We sought out this restaurant because it was recommended in the Rick Steves guidebook. It is located in a quiet square with plenty of outdoor seating. The first time we dined here, we were seated next to a local couple. When they got up to leave, the woman leaned over, asked us where we were from, and congratulated us for... More

The food is okay, nothing fancy, but can be eaten - however, not really Italian. I wonder if there is an italian chef - I doubt it. Prices are in the medium range - wines maybe a little expensive. Conclusion is that nothing was realy top, nothing was really bad. Service was fine, the waiters were observant. and it was... More

It was a random choice and we were extremely satisfied. Gluten free truffle risotto was divine. Rafael attended to our requests without even asking. He was extremely attentive, professional and warm. Highly recommended.

I actually liked the food, it tasted great and was reasonably priced for Vienna. I was going to leave this place good review. But when it was time to pay, the waiter didn't bring the check, and asked for the amount, which was 10 euro more of what we ordered. We questioned that amount and demanded check. He brought it...

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
