Cucina has a very polite staff. The food is Italian and is just like being in Italy. We had the Prosecco Rocco wine, just order it, it was sooo good. I would go there anytime again.

Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,

Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica

the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
