This is a lovely spot with lots of comfortable booths so it is easy to social distance. I had the pasta with seafood and it was excellent. The red sauce was a bit on the heavy side, but it was good. If you want bread,...it is extra. Service is friendly and food comes out quickly.More

We had a mixed experience with this restaurant. The atmosphere was lovely except for the hotel guests traipsing through the restaurant every two minutes as that was the way to the hotel reception. The food was tasted good but the pasta was a little to...el dente for us (but that could be just they way they cook it here). The service on the other hand was not great. We were never sure who our waiter was because you just had to flag someone down if you wanted anything. I will cut them some slack in that the restaurant was busy, but they never came to check on us after we got our food, never asked if we wanted another drink or dessert. It was also quite pricy.More

We entered Østbane hallen and was quickly sitting down in a cozy atmosphere. The place felt a bit lonely, but we knew from the outside that there was plenty of customers sitting outside in the sun. The food came quickly too. The serving of the...dishes was massive. I ordered the Tagliatelle Boscaiola and my wife ordered the Tagliolini ai Frutti di Mare. Because, we ordered sea-food to my wife. We asked the waiter for well-cooked since she was pregnant and they delivered that. My wife was so amazed by the amount of sea-food in the dish. There was certainly a lot of it. The king-prawn and mussels. So, she couldn't even finish the pasta. A pasta that she was found off too. While I had my dish of cheese, ham and homemade pasta. The serving was huge, but filled with character. It was an fantastic plate and I enjoyed every single bite. Because, we were so full. We didn't even consider any sweets after. Though that is something we can do the next time we return. Since, this food was good and value for money. We are happy we picked these dishes. They fitted well and was worth our currency. Most likely we will return to here another time.More

We were a party of three. One were very happy with the food, while the two others were dissapointed. Chicken salad, very good. Lasagna overcooked and the tagliatelle undercoocked. Add to that that only two of three desserts was delivered, and we had to wait...15 mins for the check (restaurant only half full on our visit). The best part of the visit was that we got a nice booth away from the noise in Østbanehallen. Can't recommend the food, but good for a glass of wine.More

We stayed at the hotel and chose to eat at their restaurant. We had the fish soup and the carbonara. And it was fine ;-)

Their homemade pasta with calamari, mussels and king prawns in tomato sauce with garlic and chili is surprisingly good. But the Tiramisù ... is extraordinary delicious! Recommended!

On a stopover in Oslo before continuing on with a tour booking. Went searching for a place close to hotel. Found this restaurant in railway station precinct. Service was good and food really nice. The house red was very good. Only issue (typical Oslo one)...was that it was a bit pricey. Enjoyed our meal and good service.More

I don't eat pork, so I asked them if they could make a dish without i (replace with beef) - but everything is premade, so the answer was "no". I ordered something vegetarian, and got it after a few minutes. The pasta was not al-dente...as you may expect from an Italian restaurant. It really didn't taste anything expect of the parmesan cheese. The service is poor as well. This is in my opinion the worst resturant in Østbanehallen. Stay away.More

We wanted a quick meal before our train trip, and this was a very convenient place to stop with our luggage. We were pleasantly surprised to find the food was quite tasty and prices reasonable.

We were in Oslo overnight while on a trip through Scandinavia. This place was recommended by our travel director as reasonable and near our lodging. My wife and I both chose the Carbonara pasta as our main dish and both of us were impressed by...how good it was. We have no had better since our trip tp Tuscany a couple years ago. Most of the evening was a blur because of the jet lag and wine, but the meal stood out. I don’t know about other dishes, as we only had the one meal. If you are staying nearby, it might be worth a try.More

It is adjacent to the exit from the railway station, so a useful place to pop in, before or after travelling. Basic, light meals, ideal for lunch.

This restaurant is located in the old main rail station in Oslo. New station is attached and it is a very short walk from the Tron Opera Hotel. We were seated immediately and served water & bread. The menu is mostly Italian....I ordered the Pasta...Carbonara which was fresh pasta and very tasty. My wife had the Lasagna which she could not finish...too much food. She rates it above average. Our bill totaled about $50 which is reasonable for downtown Oslo. Service was good so four stars is a fair rating. It's not fine dining but certainly convenient and met our needs.More
