Description: Siculus coquus et Sicula mensa...that is the Sicilian cook and Sicilian table. According to a Roman saying this is the secret to a healthy life. They came, saw and conquered: the Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Angevins, Hapsburgs, the Bourbons...Yes, every one of them! All these people, they left something in Sicily - Trinacria, for example, belonging to Greek mythology, the Gorgon in the middle and the three legs as tips to protect the island. The Arabs, skilled breeders of goats and lambs, and with them their milk, processed caciocavallo, provola pecorino. The testimony of the Saracens from the "sweet tooth" in Sicily is a legacy left by the nuns who handed down the memory, and it is thanks to them that today we have the real dough, cassata and Siculus coquus et Sicula mensa "cannoli". With the succession of all these peoples, Sicily today has a very diverse cultural heritage, that leaves a lasting impression for life, the memories of all those travelers who have had the opportunity and the chance to visit it. Between the oleanders and colorful bougainvillea, under the shade of the thick foliage of olive trees, savoring the delicacies of Sicilian cuisine, including fresh fish of the sea, the warm sun that enriches and gives an unmistakable flavor to fruits and vegetables, sipping her wine noblest, is unforgettable. Equally memorable are the inhabitants of this fantastic island, famous for their warm welcome and availability, full of life, with their kindling a sense of humor, with the inimitable "coppola" placed on their heads, with a joyful noise you preach good appetite. This atmosphere we are ready to offer here in Budapest! "Baciamo le mani!"(kind of typical Sicilian regards) Salvo Sgroi and La Coppola Team

We ordered two pizzas and did not leave hungry or disappointed! The serving were very large and delicious. The staff spoke English and were helpful. The restaurant itself was pleasant and quiet.

“Delicious meal in Budapest!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Just finished a delicious meal at this restaurant. My husband and I ate very well. Service was attentive with no rushing. We enjoyed the ambience and setting. The restaurant has tables inside and out and a good wine list. We enjoyed three generous courses each plus a bottle of good Italian wine for approximately $90 CAD - definitely worth it.

“Super Sicilian Supper”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

The main man 'Gorgeous' is a delight! Not only did he make us feel very welcome, his ethic is one thing that a lot of people forget - make every customer want to go back; we returned the next day. Delicious spaghetti and fish dishes and the best bruschetta I've ever had. A must visit, again and again and again ....

“An excellent choice”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

One of the best Italian meals I've had either in UK or abroad. Friendly, helpful and attentive staff. Good atmosphere - ideal for a romantic meal.

The food is good value given the quality, and there are options for most budgets.

Fans of seafood pasta must try the chef's speciality baked linguine - you really won't be disappointed.
