The place may be small and appears to be run by only 4 family members, but they know Italian food. Be warned, the main dishes are primarily pizza, about 30 different types. There are only about 5 or so other non-pizza meals offered. There is a good choice of starters and I can highly recommend the bruscetta. I went for... More

This small but simple restaurant has all the character you need for that real Italian feel. Waiters were friendly and to the point. Food came out quick, we had 2 ham pizzas and they were some of the tastiest pizzas we've ever had! The price is really not that bad for what you get, a tasty meal! Would go again!

This is a small family restaurant on a quiet street near the Museum Quarter. The menu and wine list are not extensive, but the pasta - home made - is first rate. All three of our pasta dishes were outstanding. The owner was helpful and the food was great value. We ent on a Monday night when the restaurant was... More

We had a fabulous dinner here. This isn't the flashiest restaurant in town - the decor is tired and there's definitely nothing pretentious about it. There is only a limited wine list. But the food was fantastic. We ordered one pizza, a pasta dish and shared a bruschetta starter. It was just top notch Italian food at a bargain price.... More

First of all... The food was absolutely fantastic and I couldn't fault it what so ever. 10/10! However... The service was absolutely shocking, as we are both restaurant managers it was horrible to see them struggling to cope. The lady who served us (curly hair), ended up being left on her own because they were obviously busy and needed help... More

We strolled across this place and were unsurprised to see it was in the top 50 restaurants in Vienna. It was a lovely family run place and the woman who served us was lovely. She recommended the truffle homemade ravioli which was unbelievable. One of the best meal I've ever had and I've eaten many times in Italy. They had... More

This restaurant is excellent value for money. On our first night in Vienna we were impressed by the tasty pizza and I was delighted the prosecco was 3 euros a glass! We liked it so much we went back. On the second visit I had salmon pasta which was delicious. We also went for dessert. There was a mix up... More

We took a friend for dinner and got this recommendation. We ate tagliatelle with truffels and she had a pizza. Meal quality was like in every other restaurant, the so called "table wine" was really poor. Sorry

So my number one tip if you go to this restaurant is to book yourself (our hotel made our booking) and get a confirmation from the owner. We arrived on New Year's Eve to be told we had no booking-this was not surprising as the owner's booking system was a scrappy piece of paper with names scrawled everywhere! All credit... More

Staying in Neubau

Neighbourhood Profile
Neubau
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
