Italian in Alsergrund & the University District

Italian food is commonplace in Vienna, but it can get a bit same-same. With its pretty platz-side outlook, Wetter would be appealing whatever the menu, and it's great for a market pit-stop espresso. But it's well-cooked regional specialities – from roast wild boar and Genovese-style tripe to flash-fried sardines and fat, housemade ravioli – that bring in the locals.
