Probably good products. I had the pulpo and that was excellent but seems more as a starter as a main plate. Just a Primi? Anyhow when back home my girlfriend was sick. She had some pasta and ice-cream.More

Dear Christel_Benjamin! Yes the Pulpo Carpaccio was a primi in our menu! Maybe there was a misunderstanding when I explained the menu of the week. I can only assure you that all our meals are made freshly everyday and after thirteen years of SPEZEREI it...More

Excellent wine and cheese, great atmosphere and service. The perfect cure for a cold night in Vienna is a glass of local white wine and a plate of Italian cheeses.

The restaurant is nice and essential. The service is informal and speedy. The Italians meals are tasty and based on quality ingredients. However the price is expansive related to the portions and the choises on menu are poor. Is good italian flavour in Vienna. Must...More

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and
