The Appiano is one of our favourite places in Vienna. Many regular guests are proving the great quality of cooking and the service. It is a family business and you can feel that the chef is living for quality and creativity. This comes for the price of a rather small menu. If you like long menu lists because you want Sushi, Pizza and Steak as a menu don't go there...also if you are Vegetarian it might be tricky for you.
The selection is reasonable and everything is handmade, especially any kind of pasta which you can have as a starter or the main course. The service is very friendly and quick, the wines a great and reasonably priced. If you find food prices rather high don't forget that it is a high rated restaurant also in all the official guides and quality has its price.
The signature dish is the grilled Spanish Octopuss as a starter and afterwards either a delicious Schnitzel or the great steak. Fresh fish is also offered and we were never disappointed. As it is a small place calling ahead for reservation is highly recommended!
