Our original restaurant called "Tom George" was re-designed in 2009, when it received a new interior design and a whole new cuisine, led by the Italian chef, Sergio Vitti.
TG Italiano represents the glamorous metropolitan style and is dedicated to Italian cuisine with a twist: our kitchen uses international flavours to create a new character. The wine selection is also excellent. The interior mirrors trendy urban bistros with the elegant shades of brown and cream.

This is my go to restaurant in Budapest, its such a great culinary experience for a very affordable price and with good portions. The wine here is simply exceptional and the waiters are very knowledgeable and able to recommend wines for you. For my rating scale for restaurants 0-10, this in my definition for 10.

Food is good, service is very good. Only negative note is that when I book a table in advance I expect a decent table. I was given one close to the waiters desk, bit uncomfortable, you know the one you are given when you arrive unplanned and they make an effort to accomodate you. There were other tables available but I was said they were booked (I booked too...).. so overall not happy

13780HUF+13% service fee = 15571
Instead we had to pay 16570 + the waitress waited for the tip
Overall 17500HUF
About +1/3 of the price is tip/service fee. A little bit unfair. However the food was good.

TG Italiano
Responded on August 10, 2020

Dear Balage! I really don't understand how You managed to pay 1000,- more? Our service charge is 13,5% but the total should have been 15640, so this should have not happened, I mean if this happened, really unfair and not meets our standards!! If there is a waiter/waitress forcing extra tip, that is something cannot happen, over tip should be decide by the guest! Iwould really be appriciated if You would mention this on the spot to a Manager! Thank you for your feedback!

As a frequent guest of TG I was this time extremely disappointed with the service. Unattentive and absent minded perhaps best describe the young lad!
Otherwise the food was great, once we received what had been ordered, and the setting is spectacular.

TG Italiano
Responded on August 10, 2020

Hey Travisw, thank You for the feedback! Beside the setting, ambient and food, the floor staff is maybe the most important! After this special pandemic situation beside the staff we could keep, we're on to hire the best waiters/waitresses! There's a guest handling training for them week by week, because it is really important to give all the guests our best! I Hopefully next time we'll have a chance to show our better "face" for You!

Food was nothing special, however made worse by the horrendous service provided by the staff at the restaurant. Took forever to get attention to order, and when asked for dessert menu after, took about 15 minutes to get. Once ordered, took a further 30 minutes to receive one tiramisu. Left feeling exhausted and helpless.

We loved it! Went here for my Birthday dinner and enjoyed the delicious food and wine. Had the grilled squid and fried calamari - as a seafood addict I can say they were of high quality and really well prepared. The apple pie for dessert was a good choice to end the evening and we even made a reservation for the next day to have our last dinner here. Both times we left the restaurant happy and fully satisfied!

The service was very poor during our visit. When we asked for the bill, the waiter immediately handed it to the only foreigner in our group. He quite rudely let us know that he expects a tip on top of the service fee that was already included in our bill. When our group agreed on a 5% tip he expressed his disappointment that it was not 10%. As this was a business dinner with one of our important stakeholders, it was even more of an embarrassing situation. Needless to say that we will not be back and will not recommend this restaurant to anyone within the company.

Some time ago I had a very good lunch at TGs so recommended it to my friends. On Tuesday 4 of us had pizzas and they were truly awful as the base was really wet soggy. My impression was that the pizzas were made well in advanced and left to stand then reheated in some way. All 4 pizzas arrived at the same time which I thought strange. In short I was left embarrassed for my recommendation and wonder that a restaurant calling itself Italian could come up with such a travesty. I realise this is feedback for your benefit but I would like a personal response.
