The pizza at Ruffino is quite nice and much better than in a lot of other places in that street. They have a real pizza oven. Only downside is that you don't have a nice place to sit outside in summer.

The restaurant looked nice, and was okay busy for a Sunday evening. The food tasted nice (huge pizza and lasagne), although the salad was very plain. What we didn't like was that they forgot to take our order and first served others coming after us....More

The restaurant is quite big and with friendly and fast service, but unfortunately the pizza was terrible. Definitely not a pizza the way an Italian would make it. The quality was very very poor (champignons/mushrooms where not fresh (from the tin), the ham was cheap...More

The eighth district is an older generation’s Vienna at
its finest: and this is what makes it popular with
locals of all ages. Josefstadt has theatre, small
independent shops, romantic passageways, neighbourhood
cafés with regular clientele, church squares, town
palaces and shady communal gardens. Trendy hangouts
have conquered distinctive places such as the Old
General Hospital (Altes AKH) and the vaults of
