We ended up in this nice restaurant by accident. When we entered there were almost no customers, but if this is the case don't let it scare you. The pizza my boyfriend took was great, as was my risotto. We were greeted by a friendly waiter who helped us all night long. In the background there was a keyboard/piano player... More

Wonderful atmosphere under a huge awning on the outdoor terrace, live music, excellent pizza at a very reasonable price, and friendly service. A large pizza with cheese, bacon, onions, mushrooms and ??, plus a lemonade and a large beer was only 3100 Ft (11.48 USD). Don't be discouraged when you walk in the door and see an empty dining room.... More

What can I say? Visited twice during a 5 day trip to Budapest. The food is fantastic with nice, big portions. Just what you want after a full day of exploring around the city. The pizza is to die for - I would book a flight back to Buda specifically for another slice.

Great price too :-) So good we ordered... More

We work closely with a group located in a nearby office complex. We needed to provide lunch for the group so we decided to give IL Treno a try and are very glad we did. We only ordered one large pizza but it was enough for the group. The pizza was ordered to go and it was ready to take... More

I have been there twice and we have been served by the same waiter who looks professional and really understand costumer service. We wanted some extra things for our food, they got everything we asked for. The portions were quite enough to make everyone full.

Following an excellent garlic and cheese pizza starter we went for tagliatelle and pasta carbonara dishes. Whilst the food was essentially good it was much too rich for us due to the amount of cream used in the sauces, and also was quite salty. The staff are very friendly.I would go back but exercise caution with choices.

Good cheap food. Quickly seated and food was prompt. Live music the night we went in. Situated just opposite the entrances to the Metros on Buda side of the river. Might not look to wonderful from the outside but once in opens up into a huge covered garden.
