A good Italian near the Castle district!
In case you are a fan of Risotto than Riso in Budapest is the best place for you to go to. The Risottos are superb, not over or under cooked as they sometimes are and prepared very creatively. Ristorante Riso is located on the Buda Hill right in front of where the castle district starts and with the nice terrace a great place to enjoy your dinner. Inside as well as outside the interior and decoration is very well organized and beautiful for example you can read the menu as well as ingredients and sometimes cooking instructions on the wall which gives Riso a very nice flair. The outside part is well kept, nice tables to sit on, sun protections and also a small playground in case you are with kids they will enjoy it too.
The restaurant has Italian dishes and is famous for its Risottos but also the other food on the menu is very good. I had to try the Risotto of course so I took a rather exotic one with shrimps, curry and coconut which is rather Asian but it tasted very well. Also the starter, Rocket with fried goat cheese was exceptional. The only point that disturbed me a bit was the price which is over average but seeing the quality and the location of Riso I think the prices are justified.
Ristorante Riso in Budapest is a recommendable place to have a nice dinner with friends and family or also for smaller celebrations. For a small snack in between it might be a bit too expensive but still reasonable.
