Booked the place based on the feedbacks seen in TripAdvisor. Location is perfect, restaurant inside very nice. Service was very good and attentive.
Food wise the starters and pasta were excellent. The meat plate (beef filet with truffles) a bit behind expectations. I probably should have chosen the fish which my colleagues took. That looked perfect.
At the end we were offered some drinks on the house which was very appreciated.
Certainly a place we will visit again on our next trip to Vienna.

Six of us went to this restaurant on Saturday night Vienna and it was fantastic. From the moment we walked in you could sense quality and service. All the food from starters to deserts was first class. Suggested wines complemented the food which was different to any Italian we had ever been in all agreed best night of holiday!

Dined here with three English friends on a Friday night. The service was excellent, the location in Central Vienna was good, and the service was excellent. The squid was amongst the most tender I have ever had, the fish soup was excellent, the truffle pasta was beautiful, they have a good and reasonably priced wine list - the Sangiovese we had was great. I thought it very fairly priced on an international basis for the quality provided.

Does not merit its ranking. We were gladly welcome (+) and quickly entertained by an amusebuche (+). Drinks were late to arrive, though (-), and we had to ask for water three times (--). The first course was splendid (octopus salad) (++); the main sadly disappointing. The restaurant proudly marketed their "strawberry week" (+), and I had expected some more imagination than just placing a strawberry on the dish (-). I ordered a involtino di pollo, a delicious dish when executed with a bit of love and passion. Instead i found myself with a vulgar wiener schnitzel about 1 cm thick (!!) with no sauce, but deep fried instead and thus dry inside, with a filling that I would swear it was the same as the courtesy starter. The started costs 2 euro, the rolled thick dry schnitzel with a strawberry 17. clearly not worth the price. So we left one half of it on the dish and left. Disappointed.

Dear Javier, we regret not to have met your taste.
However, we must make it clear that you have ordered "Involtino di pollo con prosciutto di Praga e fragole". These are baked chicken rolls with a fill of Prague ham and strawberries - no Wiener Schnitzel. If you prefer Schnitzel with sauce, maybe a German restaurant would have been the better choice.

So I was here on business and explained to the waiter that I wanted the best dish they make because I am only here once! He said the best is not on the menu but recommended pasta with cream sauce, cheese and black truffle shavings! It was fantastic and very reasonably priced! Also love the free wifi and the friendly staff! This is well worth the visit!!!
