Excellent food

Went here for a business meal recently and it's a really good restaurant serving good food. We had their local sparkling wine to start - not prosecco but very nice and slightly pink too. Bread and olive oil - really nice bread and think it's homemade. Olive oil from the same place as the... read more

We were six people in our company, and non of us had visited this restaurant before. We were well taken care of, and we got to sit in a more private room downstairs which was really cosy and great. The food and wine was just awesome. So well cooked and they serve their own imported wines from a small wineyard... More

The food was good, the wine as well; service was even better. We got served good and got tips to visit in Stockholm and how to get there. The hostess was friendly but definitely not pushy. When you are with just the two of you, definitely the place to go!

Went here with colleagues one evening and we were all very pleased with this place. Really great food, good selection of wine and a nice atmosphere. I really appreciated that the staff knew a lot about the beverages and were able to give us good tips on what to order. A great evening, will probably return next time I'm in... More

On a business trip - had to work late. Ate Scandanavian food last night and will again tomorrow. So, I found this wonderful, family-owned Italian restaurant for a late night meal by myself. For the price (moderate in my view), this was excellent Italian food. For appetizer, I had Burrata (~$17) - which is like mozzarella but its made with... More

Family owned, good restaurant in centre of Stockholm. Friendly welcome, the service more family-kind than professional. Discussing wines, the waiter allowed tasting before ordering. Obviously, the family has a vineyard in tuscany, where it produces red chianti (very good :-) and olive oil (also good). The white wines are more "public" than offering interesting tastes. The food was good at... More

Took three attempts to find an Italian restaurant on busy night in Stockholm but this one was a winner. Excellent service, food to a high quality, if the menu was a bit limited. Having said that it is better to serve a small number of excellent dishes that offer others that aren't to the same standard. Wine was pricey but... More

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
