Just behind the Byggen area at Bergen, you can find this little gem if you fancy an Italian meal. As soon as we entered we were greeted by very nice staff who guided us to a table and immediately brought us a jug of water together with a basket of bread with oils. We decided we only wanted a pizza,... More

Went here on strength of reviews on TA. It's rarely wrong. Also went because of the choice of vegetarian pastas. We booked a table. It wasn't full but the pleasant waitress was rushed off her feet, and took about 10 minutes to take our order. Only one of us was having a starter but it was ONE HOUR after we... More

We went there for a dinner twice. Each time the pizza was below expectations. It is thin dough. Very thin. Somehow when you cut it and eat the center, the center doesn't have a taste. This could be because of too much oil or tasteless cheese. However, going to the edges the pizza becomes gradually more tasty, the tomato part... More

A good decent Italian offering exactly what you would expect. Food was above average, just like the service. Lovely if you fancy Italian in Bergen. (do check out the wifi signal names that will show up on your device lol).

Decided to have a lighter supper with my family and a Pizza was the suggested favourite of my youngest. Used Tripadvisor and found this place. Not put off by some negative reviews we gave it a try. Pleased we did. The decor is truly awful but it is clean. The food was good, well prepared and plentiful. Service was pleasant... More

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
