Lovely and lively restaurant in the heart of Gamla Stan in Stockholm. We liked Agaton so much that we had dinner there two days in a row. Great mix of Italian classics and Swedish ingredients. Pizza Nordica is a must try! Reindeer and lingonberry (arctic-tundra berry) on a pizza?! It was a feast! Other must try is the seafood pasta.... More

We met here for a business dinner on a late Monday evening where most other places were already closing. We were very happy with the good which was all above our expectations. For good Italian style good this place is well chosen. The service was very good as well. Prices are a bit high, but for the area they are... More

Had a lovely, tasty, lunch at this cozy italian restaurant. Their freshly baked home made bread with salad buffet was super delicious as well as the quattro stagioni pizza with fresh tasty mussels. Recommend to try! Crowdy at lunch hour but the service was yet friendly. Enjoyed!

As many other we were greeted by charm at the door. Food (we choose pizza) was so so. Cola was half ice.. We were there at lunch time.

This restaurant is definitely one the biggest tourist trap in Stockholm. The greeter was very charming and aggressive in luring me into this restaurant. I should have listened to my instinct and left. Instead I got fooled into trying this restaurant. Price was expensive but didn't come with quality. Food was so-so. Even the simple food at Nordic Museum Cafetaria... More

After a nice walk along the beautiful streets of the old town and after careful going through few menus, we decided to try the most crowded place for dinner. We were wrong to assume that the crowded place would ideally serve quality food :(.. Here is my verdict; Ambience - Excellent Menu - Descent Serving Time - Not bad Service... More

Reading the reviews makes one think people must be talking about two different restaurants On the night I went, a Friday in February, the restaurant was full so they must be doing something right . The greeter was very welcoming and the first server recommended a good red sold by the glass. The second server was not unpleasant just brisk... More

At one of the main street in the tourist area of Old town you find this typical Italien restaurant. The staff is very friendly and the menu contains something for every taste. Good value for the money.

Well we were seduced by the charm of the guy on the door as we walked past. Don't be fooled by it as once inside they are really not interested in customer service and offer a real surly and couldn't care less approach to any normal polite requests. Worse still as we were not too hungry we ordered a couple... More
