This small and cosy restaurant is a little gem in the heart of Stockholm. It's located in a small, yet clean and warm cellar with brick walls, candles and other items which bring out some of the authentic charm of an Italian restaurant. The menu is not too big, but the dishes are done quickly and well cooked. (I would personally like to see a classical Italian dish like risotto on the menu, but I'd rather live without it than wait some 40m and then get under/overcooked rice as I experienced in other Italian places). The service, and esp. the female waitress, which served us, is a chapter for itself: overwhelmingly nice, quick and feet and attentive - a true professional which really outweighs any discomfort one may experience.
As a romantic place or as most of the reviews here put it on in top3 romantic places in Stockholm, it has a few issues in my opinion.First of all, the place is small - tables are really close to each other with chairs bumping into each other when someone sits down/gets up. For the second, romantic conversations of two people is a challenge, as it's just too noisy when the restaurant is full (and as small yet decent place like this, it's usually fully booked esp. on weekends) and the loud voices of others are echoed in the stone walls. Additionally, I would expect some traditional Italian music in a romantic Italian place, but I would image, it would make the place even more noisy.
Overall, Linguini is maybe not THE most romantic place in Stockholm, it's definitely worth visiting and a great value for money!
- Nice and cosy
- Good food
- Excellent service
- Worth the price
- A bit too small, table are really close to each other.
- Quiet loud for a romantic place, especially if you are a couple and would like to actually hear each other without raising the voice
P.S. I would suggest putting some spring or other mechanism on that door, so when smokers do their dirty thing outside, but right in front of it don't bother the guests with the incoming smoke and cold air from outside :)
