We had dinner here tonight. My husband's choice of veinerschnitzel was ok bot with just veal and New potatoes was a bit lacking. I ordered the chilli prawn linguine. So much garlic that it really spoilt the dish. Overall not hugely impressed and the service was pretty tardy. Shame as it could have been great.

I really enjoyed eating @ this italian place in Vienna. The food was very authentic, and very tasty. Prices are also quite good for the quality of the food that is served. I would recommend!

We were here on a business event. It was really nice spending an evening there - just the food wasn't any special. Not bad, either. Quite cheap prices.

We came here for a family dinner. Good selection of Italian dishes, I especially liked the aubergine slices with cherry tomatoes on top. Staff were very friendly. The high ceilings and spaced out furniture make for a somewhat cold ambiance. Good but not great.

We ate breakfast here twice due to the proximity to our apartment and found the coffee and service just ok. They waitresses did not smile once but they did their job just fine. Nothing special.

Good place at the corner of an office I worked for few weeks. Good for a quick lunch. Loved their chilli pasta. And tiramisu wasn't bad, rich and full of flavour. Service is a bit rusty!

During our 4 week stay in Vienna, we tried Ottimo in the 1st district on the Gonzagagasse. It was close to where we stayed. Good wholesome food served outside or inside. The décor is simple, the service very friendly and it is a place to go, if you want good food at very reasonable prices. We had ravioli, filled with... More

Dropped in here for a quick meal before the Comedy Club over the road in Aera. Lovely light dishes on the menu - pasta with chanterelle mushrooms in a cream sauce and seafood pasta too. A few tables outside to sit and good waitress service. Will go again.

I used to work nearby and my colleagues liked this restaurant because of the food. However the waitresses are so rude and unfriendly that it ruins the entire experience. Sometimes you're sitting there for ten minutes, not too many patrons, yet the waitresses wouldn't even come by to drop off the menus. Definitely won't be back!

Recommended by hotel - 5 minutes walk away. Quite unusual décor but it works. Very good food - some traditional Italian dishes and some unusual ones. Very good portions; excellent Austrian wine at reasonable prices and pleasant, friendly service. Dinner was quite quiet but still good atmosphere but when we returned for lunch it was very busy indeed.

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.
