We were here on a coolish night so warming Italian fare was what was needed. We wee greeted by the owner and it was hard to believe she was not Italian herself. She told us she does 6-7 trips to Italy a year. Meal wise we shared the Fritto Misto (mixed fried seafood) and Octopus Carpaccio for entree and then... More

Goog thing you could get your primi in bigger size, if you don't want a full 3 course dinner. Excelent service with their own import of interesting wines. The food ? - Excelent.

We chose this restaurant as it was next to our hotel and wow what a find. Excellent service, food and a friendly atmosphere. The pasta dishes were both plentiful and tasty and there was loads to choose from. It was a shame that we discovered this place on our last evening in Stockholm.

Who knew that the best Italian meal I ever enjoyed would be in Stockholm! The service was superb in this friendly bistro. We didn't have a reservation on a busy night, but they were very accommodating. The food was superb, the wine excellent. It certainly out shines Italian restaurants I have visited in Italy and there were some good ones.... More

After visiting Italy many times I have never thought I would eat the most delicious ravioli of my life. Just perfect but quite overpriced even comparing to others. Do not forget there is a waiting list (which means something) so reserve on time :)

My wife and I visited mid-January for a romantic dinner. As we were staying nearby at Miss Clara hotel, the location was perfect - only 2 blocks away. As it was a Saturday evening, we wouldn't have gotten a table if we hadn't had reservations. Upon entering we noted that a good portion of the clientele were more senior than... More

A Very good place to have dinner, kind staff, good food, good choice. Not 100% Italian cucina (I am Italian) the way it is cooked and its ingredients, but worth to give it a try, coming out of it quite satisfied

This will definitely become a favorite restaurant of us. The lamb filet can be the best I've ever tried, and even spaghetti with tomatoes was a tasty dish. The skilled waiters had good wine choices for every course, and the food was fantastic. As stated in the header, this is not a tourist trap, even though its situated right at... More
