Authentic Italian just off the tourist strip

We tried this restaurant after reading the Trip Advisor reviews and it was only a block from the First Hotel were we were staying. I'm glad we did. Great cosy little restaurant and we could hear the chef singing in Italian which we thought was a good sign (after a disastrous Italian in Narvik). We... read more

Found this restaurant strolling the back streets of Bergen....we were avoiding the tourist area. Shared a huge smoked salmon salad that had a selection of fruit and veggies decorating it. Companion had baked shrimp and calamari skewers. Arrived with grilled veggies and fingerling potatoes. Delicious huge portion. I had risotto al fruti di mare which plentiful with a delicious sauce.... More

Lovely little Italian place behind the Bryggen. Pizzas the size of dustbin lids and extremely tasty and thin (ie Italian style, not NYC style). Very good selection. We also had a carafe of wine. Prices slightly under what you'd normally expect to pay in Bergen. Very attentive waiter who spoke perfect Italian and English. Quick service and a plate full... More

We drop in for dinner with our friends, and I was expecting more, than I've got. Not so tasty pasta, not impressive pizza, but good wine.

I would recommend Leone di Mare for (1) the great service and (2) the generous portions and (3) value for money. Reading the previous reviews, we made a reservation for 2 on a weekday night and was greeted by an extremely friendly wait staff who was more than happy to get our names. We reached slightly earlier than our 6.30pm... More

Been here before, and just a previously, the food is excellent. It is only a small restaurant, but most certainly worthwhile going. The staff is very friendly.

We went here based on TA reviews and thoroughly enjoyed it. We ordered the pasta with lobster, and it arrived with a WHOLE lobster. It's small so book ahead. Friendly atmosphere, very good food, and pretty good value.

Probably the best seafood tagliatelle that I have ever tasted. The restaurant is on the corner of a back street about 5 minutes walk from Bryggen. My wife and I popped into the restaurant for a bite to eat, just after finishing one of the "Norway in a nutshell" tours. Managed to book a table for dinner at 9 o'clock,... More

Located behind the Bryggen, this restaurant is run by Italians and this is a synonym of real good quality cuisine. Very good pizza but also the other items on the menu looks good. The service is very good and friendly, you we have the sensation that the restorant personal will working only for you. About the price are cheap compared... More
