Pizza always fits the bill if you want to mix up your local fare. Great small place - good sized thin crust pizza. I left full - good value, definitely didn't have the tourist trap feel to it, came across as more of a locals spot.

Great food and service. Food took long because of many customers, but the Cook came out and gave us complimentary starter. Red wine was too warm but the owner gave us new temperated wine. Complimentary shot at the end. We left happy

Had dinner outside, all of the food was delicious particularly the homemade pasta. The house red wine was a bit average but l can't complain about anything else. Reasonably priced too.

After I had read the reviews and seen the attached snaps on Tripadvisor, I'd a feeling that menu is composed with large variety of italian dishes. However, you have to note, that Pizzeria Osteria da Giovanni is fundamentally the place you may eat very good pizza. If you have another italian wish, you should consider another joint. The service and... More

we walked but it is not walking distance. The owner was friendly. We had ravioli and pizza 4 quesos. They were delicous. Because of we went there before the opening time it was empty. I am sure at the dinner time it would be much more better.

We had a nice meal in this restaurant entering without having too much expectations. Service was nice, but a bit slow. The owner was a smily man who was probably cooking the pizzas too which, btw, were very nice for not being in Italy. Ingredients were fresh and tasty, but I would have expected a bit more quantity compare to... More

It's OK, but nothing to rave about. Limited menu (can be a good sign) but some of it unavailable. Our table not laid up properly - empty grissini packets not cleared away. Very tiny, so best to book if you're that keen.

I originally sought out Indian food but was redirected here by TripAdvisor. Best decision ever. The small, quiet restaurant served some of the best pizza I have ever had. I came in a little late on a week night so there weren't too many people. The owner and chef went out of his way to make me feel comfortable and... More

I had one of the daily specials - grilled prawns with salad rather than potatoes - very nice! The restaurant was full and there were only two people serving, so there were long waits for everything. We tried a bottle of Italian wine but it tasted like it was going off, so we changed to a carafe of the house... More

Staying in Neubau

Neighbourhood Profile
Neubau
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
