Brontolo means grumpy.

The chefs are nicknamed Brontolo, like the Italian version of "Grumpy" the dwarf.

The gastronomic personalities come from different sides of Italy, They bring decades of culinary knowledge to the table, but instead of earning Michelin stars, they found their own style which is friendly and traditional; they prefer to invent a new dish in the moment, following the fresh ingredients of the day. This experience is shared with Budapestians at the cozy Italian restaurant Bottega di Brontolo.

Our passion for wine leads us to constantly bring new interesting additions to our cellar, mainly of Italian and Hungarian wine, including organic and biodynamic wineries. We are able to offer many of our wines by the glass.

Obviously, we also have a passion for coffee. Our coffee provider Remi Caffé is a small Milanese coffee roaster which sources the 100% Arabica beans, mainly from South and Central America. Guess who makes the best ristretto in Budapest!
