My husband and I stopped by this restaurant the first night we were in Bergen. We wanted a change of pace from Norwegian food and hoped that this restaurant would be our answer. On a Wednesday night, they told us they could not accommodate us. We asked if we could come back later in the evening and were told that... More

My fiancé and I were desperate for some Italian in Bergen and we trusted trip advisor. Leone di Mare was very very very good. In many ways this was down to our waiter Maher, he was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble, he was chatty, engaging and most of all great at his job. We had various startes with a... More

My husband and I ate here one night in May 2014. I am a vegan (vegetarian, no eggs, dairy) so it was hard to find places in Norway where I could eat more than salad or steamed veggies. Location is on Ovregaten street - just a couple blocks up from the famous Hanseatic Wharf (street with the old historic buildings).... More

Found this through tripadvisor, looking for a little place that would be suitable for my wife and two children (2/4 yrs old). It was perfect in pretty much every way. The service was outstanding, from all three people who looked after us. The food was excellent and generous in portion size. Delicious home made bread to start, with cold beer... More

We found this place on the way back to our hotel via the back streets. It looked so homely and nice with a good, reasonably priced menu that we thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed as it really was excellent. The staff were lovely and so friendly and it had a very relaxed atmosphere. The... More

This restaurant is close to the To Søstre guesthouse (see my review) and serves Italian classics with an emphasis on food and wine from Marche - including some vegetarian options. The service was quick and friendly and the pasta arrived at our table still steaming hot. We also got a complimentary sweet drink before departing. By Bergen standards, all this... More

Finally a restaurant in Bergen serving real italian food. The place is rather small, simply decorated but with a nice view towards the Bryggen warfs. The best choice is pasta, freshly made and not overcooked with tasting sauces. As starter, the aubergines rolls are delicious. Locally imported wines are available; the one with a sheep head on the label is... More
