Honest to God, that was the best panna cotta I've ever eaten

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... read more

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

We had an amazing diner consisting of 5 antipasti - Prosciutto e Melone, Italian salad with grains, Porchetta, Roastbeef and Bacalao frito. primi - pasta with tomatoes and aubergine, secondo - stuffed chicken with potatoes, chard and onions, dolce - panna cotta with peach. All dishes were delicious. If there was one thing that I had to mention on the... More

I have to admit that I don't really get the "fixed menu" thing that's popular here in Denmark, where I've been working for a few months. You find it in the nicest restaurants here. I was also worried when I read that this was nordic-influenced, though Italian. I am not a fan of Nordic cuisine (which generally includes lots of... More

I came to this restaurant a couple of years ago and can only recommend it: we had a long dinner with over 5 courses with an italian background and the ingradients were just superb. The staff were incredibly friendly and spoke a very good level of English. I would recommend this place for a relaxed dinner with a better-half or... More
