Cheap pizza is the national dish of Sweden. This is a proper Italian restaurant where you can get proper pizza and pasta in a cozy locale.

The chef of the place is terrible. He treat my waiter really bad and I don't like that. But then come the pizza and nearly make me forget what I had already seen. Pizza thums up and personal thums down!!

We were heading somewhere else when we passed by Ernesto's and caught the good scents of Italian cooking. They seated us right away and were very welcoming. Our orders came in good time and were very good...nice family atmosphere!

Great Italian food and service. Our family of 4 enjoyed an evening eating outdoors with heaters to take off the evening chill. Moderately priced with nice menu of traditional Italian dishes with fresh presentation.

We had an excellent dinner here with travelling friends. Pizzas were great and they do have pastas and meats as well. A glass of red wine (house wine) and dinner was perfect. Friendly staff with a smile and a laugh.

Definitely not Italian standard. The service was poor. We waited a long time for the pizza and when it finally came, it was not exactly the way... More

Ernesto is the only real Italian in the small town of Kalmar. The restaurant is situated middle of the city center and is small and convivial.
