I was not particularly a fan of Novellino or Bahur Tov, but then again, maybe things have changed in the last few years. The pizza shop was quite decent, and the butcher was a fun guy (especially if you speak Yiddish).

Ainhorn is the name of the butcher place and Berel is a great guy (butcher) and his SIL who runs the take out is lots of fun.

Simchas is pretty good and Alef Alef also has good fleishig food (most people go there for Shabbes meals if they have nothing else set up).

They have a few newer places but haven't been yet.

Obv being from there, I have not done it but heard from 2 people that used it that it was enjoyable and not too long and you get the benefit of walking through or close to midtown Vienna which is beautiful.

I wasn't addressing him, per se; I was merely contributing some random info to the thread, based on earlier posts (from a few months ago, admittedly).

Novellino is very nice. I'm here now, and honestly I'm okay just to sit here with the free WiFi until it's time to head back to the airport.  ;D Vienna doesn't seem terribly interesting.

I remember being surprised by that as well-but I think that the service and overall quality of the food made up for it

They gave me a free glass with my coffee, and I made sure to leave the water running a few seconds longer in the bathroom to make up for it.
