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

Great Italian food and service. Our family of 4 enjoyed an evening eating outdoors with heaters to take off the evening chill. Moderately priced with nice menu of traditional Italian dishes with fresh presentation.

Nice restaurant with a genuine Italian atmosphere. We didn't order pizza's but pasta as 'primo piatti' and meat as main course. The pasta's were very tastfull ( large portions!, could do as main course). The meat was accompanied by a very nice risotto ( smaller portions, so you would want to take an appetizer such as the bruschetta ( really... More

We had an excellent dinner here with travelling friends. Pizzas were great and they do have pastas and meats as well. A glass of red wine (house wine) and dinner was perfect. Friendly staff with a smile and a laugh.

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

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
