Absolutely fantastic food - the best Italian food We've ever eaten and my husband travels to Italy regularly. Brilliant service. It is however very smoky, think we were just unlucky as had 2 chain smokers (Galloises too!) on the next table.

We were a little nervous visiting this restaurant as, when we called to book, they warned us it was ok for smokers and hoped that was ok with us. No problem.

The food was spectacular and the service was great. The waiter, Enzo, kept coming back to pay special attention to us and especially or 9 year old daughter. The food was fantastic and they were very good about helping to recommend dishes.

My wife and I were absolutely stunned by this restaurant, because it was absolutely unexpected! In the most touristy part of town, in a very small, unpretentious place, which is rather a bar than a restaurant, with just one guy behind a bar counter...we found absolutely SPECTACULAR Italian food, in combination with a warm and welcoming service. Their vittelo tonnato... More

Very small, cosy and smokey, the food was excellent, homemade pasta. The head waiter, Enzo was a great character, however he could easily offend. It was so good I am thinking of booking the whole restaurant for a business dinner. I will return. You will need to book. Great place

Visited with some business colleagues. Very nice and modern restaurant in central Vienna. Great appetizers and main courses. Very good service and waiters. Had several bottles of very good wines, and was in addition asked if we would like to taste some exquisite wine. And the price totally was quite reasonable for the experience.

Even if the tables are outside, inside is very tiny, Salvo and Stefano are having a real restaurant! The food makes you feel to sit on the square in Sienna or somewhere else in Italy.

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.
