Little Italy

Budapest does not have an Italian quarter like we've seen in the movies, but the Italian expat community is definitely one of the liveliest in the city. Besides an army of restaurants, the faithful crowd is also served by an ever increasing number of cafes and shops supplying original Italian foodstuff. Many restaurants wear their heart on their sleeve when it comes to the team they support: Millenium da Pippo on Andrássy is home base for the Juventus fans of Budapest, providing excellent pizza, pasta and Siclian fish dishes and an environment filled with various Juve related paraphernalia. The TV is of course a must for watching the games and be prepared for incessant screams and expletives alongside your arrabbiata during a match. Today the tifosi celebrated an all-important away win at Cesena and Liberation day, which is a national holiday Italy.
