Nice service and good food in Old Town

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

The food here is always good and not overly priced for the Gamla Stan area. If you're looking for a nice quick meal in a pleasant atmosphere Agaton never lets you down. Make sure you make a reservation on the weekend.

This appeared to be an attractive and inviting Italian style restaurant with a decent selection of reasonably priced dishes. On a snowy Monday it was also pretty busy. Just goes to show that first impressions are not always accurate. Our pizzas were pretty uninspiring and just about warm with very doughy bases. Service was slow (there seemed to be only... More

There's a wide choice available on the menu. I had the pasta, pesto and chicken special. Not sure I would call it a special, it was however very tasty and good value for money. The service was good, Emma was very attentive. I will definitely be back.

I am a traveler that are studying in Sweden by the moment. One thing i learned about swedish people is that they enjoy the best of all Countrys, And from Italy, they just get the best of theirs wines and food, embraced with the swedish tradition. So there you do find a italy corner where you can have a taste... More

We picked this at lunch time based on the menu outside and the large crowd inside. We ordered from the specials of the day. My daughter went with the "I'll have what everyone's having" theory and got the moose meatballs with mashed potatoes and mixed berries. I had the veggie lasagna. Both came with a very fine salad bar.

The food was terrible! Ordered a pizza and it was probably one of the worst I have had. The garlic bread was ok but again not worth the 30kr. Even though I asked for tap water, they served me bottled water (or at least I think it was since I never saw a bottle but was only charged for it!!).... More
