We came here for lunch yesterday. It was fairly busy but we managed to get a nice table inside as it was a little windy to eat outside. This was our first visit. It’s a very authentic looking traditional restaurant with elaborate murals on the...walls , lots of chi anti bottles , white tablecloths etc. the staff were friendly and pleasant.We both had pasta dishes, my partner had the beef fillet with porcini mushrooms. I had the salmon with leeks and tomatoes. We had it with a bread basket. I had an Italian beer and my partner had an aperol spritz. The food was delicious. We also found it very reasonably priced. On a lunchtime most of the pasta dishes and Pizza are KR 98. Highly recommended.More

Good, attentive service, but we were also left to enjoy our wine in peace long after we had finished eating. We had Caprese salad, pasta vongole and cannelloni con ricotta and spinachi. Very tasty and prepared to perfection!

Really super friendly staff! Main courses (medaglioni italiano and Cannelloni con ricotta spinach) were fantastic! Starters not of the same quality. However the overall experience was really great.

It was bad service. They ignored us while giving great service to others. It was clear that they treated customers differently. We waited very long just to get the menus.

We were welcomed by the amazing staff, and served tasteful food. Can’t complain about anything. The pizzas are very much recommended, and ordering either a starter or dessert doesn’t hurt😋

The pizza was really tasty, I ate until I almost couldn't walk. The waiters did their best, the restaurant kept being busy the entire time I was there. The toilet facilities were not great, hence only 4 stars. Steep stairs and only one functioning toilet...in the ladies' room are not 5 star friendly.More

What do you expect in Copenhagen? We are not in Italy. The food was okay and the atmosphere was great. We sat outdoors. (I peeked in. indoors and it was lovely and more formal.) Atmosphere outside was lively and occasionally loud plus they had a...singer stroll by with Italian favorites. We ordered grilled salmon, cooked medium. It arrived well done. We also ordered Spaghetti Bolognaise. it was a disappointment. Sort of tasteless no matter how much Parmesan Cheese we added. We had fun.More
