“Expensive but ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

As with everything in Sweden, good wine is very expensive but this restaurant has some good choices. Food is ok if you like more upscale Italian. Atmosphere is boring. There are better choices within walking distance.

“good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Menu was slightly limited but we had well prepared food and the waiters were helpful. The food was slightly pricey but comparable with other local restaurants. The sea bream was excellent.

“Authentic Italian - in Sweden??”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We visited Caina upon some reviews via Chowhound. It's located in the "basement" of the Nobis Hotel. The place is adorned warmly, despite the handicap of having no windows and a regular-height ceiling.

That said, the food was fantastic. It was authentic Italian - al dente risotto and pasta dishes. The lamb was good but not great. The other dishes were fantastic.

The service was above-average for a European experience. The timeliness of the service and dish arrival was at expectation level for a high-level restaurant.

After several weeks of traditional Scandinavian - most of which varied between average to inedible, this was a welcome and timely treat.

The menu is not extensive and the price is expensive, but this restaurant is worth the visit.

“Chic hotel, lovely restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Having some Italian food was a nice change-up from travelling 9 days in Scandinavia. I had the carpaccio and seafood pasta...both were excellent. The service was wonderful and the location of the hotel right in the heart of the chic shopping area.

“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

First night in Stockholm after a week in Norway so craving a non-fish meal. Everything was delicious especially the rigatoni. We had wine by the glass and the suggestions of the sommelier were excellent. It's a pretty place in a lovely hotel. My only regret was the I wasn't asked to share the decanted Brunello at the next table. This restaurant says nothing about Stockholm but it is a very nice place to spend an evening.
