We had a very pleasant dinner at Krizia. The food was very good, and similar to some places we've eaten at in Italy. The menu featured strawberries, which were in season at the time; it was one of the few times during our visit to the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary that we saw any use of seasonal ingredients on a restaurant menu.
The staff was helpful and kind; when I spilled soup on my arm, they rushed right over to help me clean off my sleeve. The pastas and the main courses were both delicious.
Yes, the restaurant is in a basement, but this seems to be a common occurrence in this part of the world (though we noticed it much more oftne in Prague than in Budapest).
Krizia is one of the rare and precious places in wich italians in Budapest love to eat. The atmosphere is wonderful in winter and friendly in summer. The food is always fresh, seasoned and the chef is always happy to suggest the best for the day.
Fish is fresh, and the same for vegetables. The specialities are several but I suggest to try goose liver, fish pasta, veal and the desserts.
Wonderful place to eat, a solid certainty.
