Expert review of Fausto's
Fausto’s has had a consistent reputation for excellence since it opened in the 1990s, and is the place to linger over fine Italian fusion cuisine.
The chef believes that cooking is an evolving art, and he focuses on continually reinterpreting and inventing dishes. As a consequence, the menu is unusual and interesting, featuring dishes like deer with pumpkin gnocchi, and red ravioli stuffed with duck breast and prune. It’s complemented by a long list of Italian and Hungarian wines.
It's sophisticated but comfortable.
The service is top drawer.
You could eat a three-course meal (without wine) for around 10,000 forints, but you could spend a few thousand forints more too. There are degustation menus: a three-course lunch for a very reasonable 5,000 forints and dinner for 14,000-18,000 forints.
There’s a cheaper, less formal sister restaurant called Fausto’s Osteria (1072 Budapest, Dohány u. 5; www.osteria.hu).
