Food-wise great! But the place is really small, not enough space, can be really crowded and service is really so so. It's fine if you want to have a nice pizza and go. Would not recommend for a longer meeting or dinner out.

My wife and I dined here based on a recommendation from our hotel. We sat on small patio that had only 6 tables, only one other table was occupied. I had an arugula salad with some of the best mozzarella that I have had in years. We shared a thin crust pizza w mushrooms, ham, and artichokes. It was great... More

I normally wouldn’t give a restaurant this low rating, however, I feel obliged to do so to warn fellow travelers who might have mistaken this restaurant for a good Italian eatery that offers decent food with fair prices. But in fact, it’s far from that!! We came to eat here on our first night in Vienna, based on the positives... More

Hidden away in a side street in the Museum Quarter is a gem of an Italian restaurant. Seating no more than 30 people in a cosy room you can expect genuine Fresh pasta and pizza cooked to order. The set daily menu is extremely good value: 3 courses for €16. Appetisers are traditional fare at around €8 Pasta and pizza... More

Tasty pizza, although a bit greasy, but the crust was thin and crispy. The salad was tasty, but also rather oily. I would return, but perhaps try a pasta dish next time.

Amazing food and atmosphere for a very reasonable price in the heart of expensive Vienna. It hasn't been easy to find a good restaurant that also has enough to offer vegetarians, and this place was just perfect for us. Thanks for a lovely evening!

Best pizza I have ever had. Great salads, highly recommended for Italian food lovers. Very large variety of pizza toppings. The owner was very kind and patient. The dessert recommended by him was fantastic.

We came here because it is close to our hotel and reviews from trip advisor. The pizza was good as well as the home made pasta. It is comparable to what you'll get in Italy. The service is excellent.

Staying in Neubau

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
