I liked the concept of a no choice menu, but this was disappointing. The five starters (salami, broccoli and polenta, bulgur wheat (we think), beetroot and mayonnaise, and thinly sliced beef with mascarpone) were all individually nice to eat but it seemed that they were all heavily salted and / or garnished with or contained Parmesan. Consequently the overall effect... More

Ate here with colleagues last night. From the moment you walk in and are greeted with a chilled glass of prosecco the evening flows smoothly. The owner/manager comes across and relays the menu describing the origin and make up of the dishes. Various courses came and went and were completely delightful . Vegetarians were also catered for. All washed down... More

I was at a wedding a couple of weeks ago, where the food was delivered by FAMO, and it was great, it's the best Italian food that I've tasted in Copenhagen for a long time. If you like good food this is the place to go.

Pricey but tasty! It's a 5 course meal. Portions are average. Lamb was the main course and the chef made a fish substitute for me as I don't care for lamb. We were a party of 5 and only three of us enjoyed the meal. Service was good but a little slow between courses. This may be the restaurants style... More

5 minutes in we're shyly apprehensive about the fixed menu concept and the ever so slightly brusque waitress, 15 minutes in we're up in arms and ready to leave as the chef himself berates my young son in a rude way for asking for balsamic vinegar to dip his bread in (Fabio DOES NOT use balsamic vinegar!), 35 minutes in...

Took the family (children in their early 20s) to Famo last week and had the best meal of our trip. That night they only offered a single 4 course meal - it was fabulous. The owner, Fabbio, was so welcoming and he personally delivered each course explaining what we were eating. Each course was Italian cuisine at its best. And... More

Being a lover of Italian food and all things Italian, having lived in Italy for 2 years when I was in my twenties, my husband booked this restaurant as a treat for me after reading about it before our trip. It was fabulous. The food was far from mediocre and all the dishes were flaversome and interesting. I love all... More

Mediocre, ordinary tourist kitchen but still quite expensive. We visited Famo on a day where the fixed menu was set on seafood (primi) and chicken (secondi), neither of which we eat. The antipasti was ok, but small servings and no surprises or generosity. The replacement pasta dish with vegetables was very ordinary, and not something you want to go to... More

This used to be my favorite restaurant in Copenhagen when living in the city around 2005-09. Back then the atmosphere was authentic Italian, and the value for money could not be beat. Even though the service was casual and "smart", it was still attentive and charming - hence the authenticity. And even though the food was simple with few ingredients... More
