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

Ernesto himself seats you and makes his rounds among the tables. Great antipasti, pizzas och to-die-for veal and risotto. Don't miss it!

These restaurant is a piece a real Italy in Kalmar. The owner is Italian and also some other people than work there. The food is good, but the pizza for me it's too much done with a Swedish style. They use Italian ingredients and the wood-fire oven but it's too expensive for me for that kind of pizza (around 10€... More

Ernesto himself usually meets his customers at the door. Of course he is from Italy and runs the place together with his family. The food is delicious. He knows that so it will cost you a little bit more than the average in Kalmar. But still - it´s Worth the price.

The only real Italian pizza in Kalmar. As Italian moved to Sweden a few years ago, the Ernesto's pizza is like traveling back "home" for just an hour. The ingredients are the right ones, mozzarella, real tomatoes, ham, etc... The wood-fired oven gives the extra taste that an electric oven would never give! Service is ok, maybe slightly more expensive... More
