The pizza was ok. The service was poor.

It tries to give an image of being authentic and has a nice design. The atmosphere is nice. However the pizza did not hold the expectations. Was ok but not more than that. Definitely not Italian standard. The service was poor. We waited a long time for the pizza and when it finally came, it was... read more

Ernesto is the only real Italian in the small town of Kalmar. The restaurant is situated middle of the city center and is small and convivial. I have visited the restaurant with family, friends and business companions. The food is good, the Italian dishes are really nice. They could however change and update it. It has been the same for...

The atmosphere in the restaurant is very relaxing and comfortable. We was given a table in the upper section and our waiter was quick handing out the menus. Me and my girlfriend took a 3-course dinner and our friends only took a main dish. If I was to set my judgement on my food alone I would give 4 star.... More

Traditional italian food, really high quality! The food was delicious, came fast, and filled us up. Nothing more we could ask for!

This restaurant is one of the best italian restaurants I have ever met. The food is really delicious and the service excellent. The owner is walking inside and checks if everything is ok. I really recommend this restaurant.

The food was correct but the restaurant when full is very busy and the service not attentive enough. Also a deception, there are only a few wines per glass and when one, with specific characteristics is missing, no similar wine proposed and the waiter does not know what the wines are.

To be fair I did not get on well with the food in Sweden as there is so much sauce and often 2 or 3 sauces on one meal so this affects my review. We had lunch here and it was ok for an italian meal but still had a lot of sauce. Staff were friendly and relatively helpful but... More

Went to Ernestos for an evening meal. We had pizzas and antipasti, which tasted great, but due to a number of inexperienced summer interns, the service was slow. However the food was absolutely worth waiting for.

Had a plate of olives, cheese and a pizza. The olives might have been from "euroshopper". The cheese was terribly plain and the pizza was just bad. Baaad place.

We found Ernesto's purely by chance while walking through Kalmar, and decided to give it a try. We were thoroughly impressed! The ambience was warm and inviting, our waiter was extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, and the food was absolutely outstanding! We both had the mussels special which was fabulous-fresh, firm and in a delicious broth. The kids had spaghetti... More
