Disco Volante Marinara on the Dancefloor

Disco Volante Marinara on the Dancefloor

Parli Italiano? Even before entering Disco Volante in the 6th District, it feels like Italy – apart from the rain and the greyness of Gumpendorfer Straße. Instead of “Ziehen” (Pull), the small sign on the door says “Tirare” – which I of course push instead of pull. Disco Volante’s interior quickly fulfils expectations. A giant […]

Mafia Sandwiches

Mafia Sandwiches

Through the dirty windows of an abandoned storefront at Seidengasse 31, you can just make out the dark shiny floor tiles and newly painted yellow walls. Only a couple of white boxes piled inside provide some clue of the former eatery Don Panino. Neighbors tell how the eatery used to sell pasta, olive oil and […]

Milk. Sugar. Eggs. Cream. Add your favourite flavour and stir vigorously over ice and salt… ma garda te! A classic Italian gelato and long a Viennese tradition. Now, fast forward, to Vienna in 2012.

Eatalico: Pizza With a Pulse

Eatalico: Pizza With a Pulse

Now that the holiday season is behind us, Vienna has rung in the new year, and the first snowfalls have dusted the city with a wintery nimbus – which provides the perfect backdrop for gazing out the window and pondering life’s eternal questions… Such as, Does this town really need another pizzeria? The owners at […]

When the Moon Hits Your Eye

I can be quite particular when it comes to my native country’s culinary arts. You see, I’m an Italian. But looking for Italy — I mean the real Italy — in the Austrian capital isn’t always easy. Here we are nonetheless, and my companion and I hit the city’s bitter winter streets in search of […]

Palermo Ristaurante: Biananci Reinvents Palermo

In Vienna, Italian restaurants are often avoided. Dime-a-dozen trattorias serve tired pasta concoctions with the occasional fish and meat dishes that are neither fresh nor interesting, leaving any semi-competent cook to wonder why one shouldn’t just make this stuff at home. But you don’t have to tell Antonio Biananci. In fact, the new co-owner and […]

Italian Sun In Vienna

At the end of a busy city day, I often long for a cozy little place, where I can relax, have a glass of wine and a satisfying meal, detaching myself from the crazy comings and goings on every side. The other day, I found that place, and strange as it sounds, it was a […]

The I Ragazzi Experience

The I Ragazzi Experience

I discovered I Ragazzi just around the corner of Volkstheater and the Museum Quartier. An Italian Restaurant specializing in pasta and pizza, its large windows look out over the a plaza at the corner of the Burggasse and Kirchhofgasse – hard to miss and magnetically inviting. Through the thick red curtains at the entrance, to […]
