Yes, it is a bit bobo but lets face it: bobo is popular. So if it is not for Vapiano then it is now eatalico. Sure, you don’t get the food by yourself but you can sit down and have it served by the waiter, which turns out to be an advantage.
The menu is not like in other pizza places (Pizzeria) where you have ten pages loaded with pizza but the number of pizza is very limited. What I find interesting is that they serve “white pizza” – pizza without tomato sauce but with sour cream instead. That is more like a Tarte flambee Italian style – hm, well kind of an interesting combination. But we all live in Europe … so.
Anyhow. The main mission here is: try the pizza. Whereas Vapiano is more of a pasta place here you eat pizza. And you don’t eat any kind of pizza but you eat one baked in a wood stone oven that can reach 500 degrees celsius … judging from the crust of my pizza I believe it. But I shouldn’t be too critical. The pizza was served fast and it was huge. It has 45 centimeter in diameter and that means that it is for 2 persons not just for one.
Yes, the plate was too small and so it was a challenge to cut the pizza without cleaning the table with the rest of it. But when like half of the pizza was gone it was much easier. And the taste was yummy. The tomato sauce on top was really good. And I had the veggie pizza (Prima Vera) with grilled veggies on it. And it was really great. There were aubergines, zucchini and artichokes. After more than half of the pizza I was stuffed though and so I had to ask the waiter for a doggy bag. So the pizza can definitely be shared by two people – no problem. The price of 10,- Euros for that pizza was decent. It is not the cheap pizza place but it does not appear that way anyhow.
It is a place where people from the offices in the area are going for lunch. The waiters are very friendly. If you need WiFi ask the waiter for the password. They also accept credit cards and there is a weekly special menue as well.
All in all I like this new restaurant and I have to say I like the pizza much better than the one at Vapiano. And so I would say la dolce vita is waiting for you at eatalico in Vienna
