Discovered the restaurant when a friend took me there for a meal on a visit to Stockholm. Had lamb which I enjoyed so much that I took my colleges there the following night for the same meal. Will definately be back next time I'm in Stockholm.

Truly authentic food-fantastico! The best Italian food I've had in YEARS--better than many ristorante in Italy. The food was fresh and perfectly prepared...the waitstaff was superb and the ambiance was wonderful. The gnocchi and the lamb were out of this world!

We arrived a bit early and the owner invited us to the bar with a sip of wine while they made the table. Excellent service, really great selection of dishes on the menu and the food: absolutely perfect! The wine that was recommended with the food was excellent as well. In sum: I doubt you will be disappointed!

With a restaurant claiming to serve genuine Italian food around every corner, this one stands out with the quality of the ingredients and serving classics such as fritto misto and spaghetti alle vongole. The service was attentive and friendly without being intrusive and the atmosphere was cosy despite the restaurant being full. Highly recommended

I had been to this restaurant once before, but was recently walking through Drottninggatan with another friend who was visiting from out of town. He was hungry, and also happens to be quite discerning. I thought that I would give Esperanza a chance to see if the exceptional quality was a fluke or a consistent hallmark of the place. Without...

We had lovely service, which is wonderful when having a small child to join. Yummy bread, absolutely perfect appertisers (that were made off the menu due to pregnancy-restrictions), and also good main courses. The american beef would have maybe needed some extra garnishes or some sauce with it but the lamb dish was wery tasty. And to our surprise, the... More

We had a reservation which you need according to our Swedish friends. We had our 14 year old grandson with us and we ate too much but who could resist ordering seconds on the appetizers. We were lucky to have gone in June when the chef has enough time for preparing and serving.
