“High Quality Intense Italian Feast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

Between the three Famo restaurants in Copenhagen I must have made over twenty visits in 2012. Go very hungary. The anti pasta itself is enormous but glorious.

“A good night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

My most recent visit was just before Christmas, a time when may Danish restaraunts have very similar menus.

Not so here and their usual high standard of food and was maintained despite it being busy.

I consider the food to be of a very high standard and good value for money.

People need to be aware that there is no choice in the food but what one does get tastes and looks great.

I have been here with work colleagues, friends and family and each time it was a delight.

“Very friendly and accommodating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

Following a lonely planet recommendation we visited Famo on a cold Monday night. As a vegetarian I was worried about the 'set menu' but the staff were more than happy to help and made me a vege option without any fuss. We made the mistake of eating too much of the tasty bread which made it a struggle to get through the rest of the plentiful food! Good antipasti, really lovely fetuccini, tasty main course (aubergine lasagne for me) and an amazing lemon tart. The food was good value - the only minus was the prohibitively expensive wine list, which was only listed by the bottle and not by the glass. Lovely prosecco though. I would definitely recommend Famo to a friend for an experience that is more than just a meal out.

“Dull, uninspired.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Not something i wish to repeat. I had the only thing they have, the set menu. The anti-pasti was acceptable, but only just. Most things were quite bland, a bit on the acidic side, and rosemary all over everything, but lacking in basic seasoning like salt and pepper. Pasta dish was quite foul, tasteless and pretentious. The meatdish again underseasoned, with undestinguishable vegetables, smothered in balsamic vinegar. And again with rosemary. The dessert was the best of the meal, at least no rosemary, but still not memorable.
Not an experience i wish to repeat.

“Cozy restaurant with authentic Italian food and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

What a nice experience we had at this little restaurant that offers truly genuine Italian food. They have a set menu that changes based on the produce they have. We had a 5 course meal and every single dish was spectacular.

We started with antipasto - 5 different dishes, they were all sooo good. Some assorted cheese, vegetables, charcuterie, etc; Then we had 2 primes - one was a risotto and the other was a pasta with homemade sausage, both were cooked to perfection!; The main course was duck breast, it was so tender and full of flavor; and to finish our meal we had a nice pana cotta with apple crumble, it was yummi.

The service is excellent. Everyone was so attentive and helpful always asking how we had liked our food and really appreciative when we said we loved it. I really liked their attitude.

The ambiance is so cozy. It's a small restaurant which might have 15 tables or so. You can see the kitchen from wherever you're seated.

I highly recommend this place. My only recommendation would be that if you have any allergies or particular food preferences you should contact them in advance to know what's their menu for the day and check if they can make adjustments to your meal.
