Cosy Italian rooftop restaurant and bar, right next to St. Stephen's Cathedral.
Ristorante Settimo Cielo is a romantic and cozy rooftop bar and restaurant with stunning views of Vienna. Perched on the 10th floor of the classic Hotel Royal, right next to St. Stephen's Cathedral, Settimo Cielo does not only offer striking vistas over the city, but also an extensive wine list, good cocktails and nice Italian food.
Open from noon to midnight year round, the restaurant comes with both panoramic windows and partly glass roof, so there is always a possibility for views. But the best time is still summer, when the narrow but lovely al-fresco terrace is in full swing.
Visit for a sunny lunch or a romantic dinner, and enjoy antipasto, risotto, grilled fish or meat by one of the classic dining tables. Or head over to the bar, looking straight on to the cathedral, and enjoy a classic cocktail or one of the many Italian wines. Oh, and there is also a Saturday brunch buffet.
A bit upscalein ambience and price, Ristorante Settimo Cielo still comes with a very friendly and nice vibe. Reservations for lunch and dinner are not mandatory, but to make sure you get a table on the outdoor terrace, it might be worth it.
