I have been to this restaurant a lot of times during the last 6 years. I like the concept: It is a fixed Italian menu. You can choose to take 4 servings or 5 servings. And then you can choose from the winelist as you please or you can choose the wine menu that completes the menu. This time we... More

Recommended by friends who live in the city as a standout restaurant in a city filled with a seemingly endless supply of them. We chose the food & wine tasting menu and enjoyed every minute of it. Each wine was greatly enjoyable and paired fantastically well with each course. Fresh and earthy flavours in every single dish kept us wanting... More

Everything they served tasted great, as we expected. But we were a bit worried that we would cause problems for the kitchen as our group consisted of vegetarians, vegans and "normals". The staff handled the diverse problems arising from that with finesse, the cook changed his recipes a little, and everyone got what they wanted - and as quick as... More

We enjoyed a very meal at Famo. Everything was good. Our waitress was always smiling and gave us good advice regarding choice of wine for the menu. There some misunderstanding regarding what restaurant we ordered our table, they handled the situation perfect. The food was tasty and even though each dish was small no one was hungry after dessert. If... More

Some say yes, some say maybe not, in other reviews - we say 'oh yes'! Yet we saw one or two at other tables looking like they weren't enjoying their evening as much so maybe it's about what you want on a given day.... We unhesitatingly chose the Taster Menus (change daily) for both food and wine - four courses,... More

We love Famo - We have eaten there on numerous occasions and it is always brilliant. It’s a set menu and it varies from day to day. It is very affordable - you get 4 courses for only 380 kroner! Bear in mind that this restaurant has a Bib Gourmand! (I’m not sure they got one in 2016 though) Also:... More

We sought out this restaurant as it was 5 minutes walk from our hotel and it was mentioned in our guide book. We were not disappointed. We liked the unpredictability of the set 4 course menu (350 Dk). Our waiter was very welcoming and friendly and explained every course to us as he served it. We had 4 different antipasti... More

Quite simply, this restaurant was an embarrassment to Italian cuisine. The service was equally poor with 40 minutes waiting times between courses. I had booked a table for three vegetarian people a day in advance. CPH is not great for vegetarian diners but had no idea an Italuan restaurant would be this poor. The starter: Cold bread and cold bread... More

We had a group event dinner here and it was great: perfect communal plates, well cooked, great wine pairings, and unobtrusive yet prompt service.

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighborhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
