My wife and I tried Intenzo during a weekend visit to the city. Great food, nice atmosphere and the waiter/service was excellent. I would definitely go back if we visit the city in future!

Wonderful food, delightful staff, warm and comfortable ambience. Had a delicious salmon dinner with honey shallots and scalloped potatoes, great bottle of wine, and tiramisu! Highly recommend and very close to Hotel Palazzo Zichy.

The restaurant was fine, but not for local food. Goulash was not the best choice, but pasta, breast chicken and bifsteak was good enough.

Pork medallions overcooked, sauce almost none. Overall, food was very dry with little flavor. Waitstaff and bartenderess seemed full of themselves and more intent on watching tv than taking care of customers. Never came by to check on satisfaction. Could not recommend.
