“Meat with a twist”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

After have been a good italian restaurant they now have changed the concept into a meat restaurang with locally produced ingredients on almost everything. The menu promise a lot with both classical dishes but also something new. The taste is good but it doesn't reach top level as i had expected. Even though I'm satisfied with the visit and the personal is good and friendly and i can recommend you to go there.

“Buona Cucina Italiana - Enjoy!”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

Trattoria Cinque invites you to Italian dishes an flavors in the best possible way. I have dined here four or five times now and never been disappointed. On the contrary, always a nice and cozy atmosphere, friendly service, a tempting menu that changes with season and above all - great food.The menu is composed the Italian way, with antipasti, primi, secondi and dolce. Trattoria Cinque is located a few minutes walk from the city center, right on the central square on "Söder" (South).

On my last visit I had the chef's recommendation for the evening, a good steak with tasty mashed potatoes. For a starter I had a classic bruschetta. A personal favorite is the risotto, heavenly creamy. In my opinion this is one of the Top Three Restaurants in Gavle - all categories.

“A tasty piece of Italy in the southern parts of Gavle”
Reviewed September 16, 2009

We were recommended this Italian Trattoria by the tourist bureau, and enjoyed a very pleasant evening with superb food. The restaurant is situated at the corner of a small town square. There are a number of pubs and restaurants in the area. We decided to sit inside, but the roofed outdoor seating would also have been nice. The service was friendly and swift. The menu is genuinely Italian with something for every taste, atleast to our family. The only thing you might miss is pizza. Familys with small children can find it a bit difficult to satisfy their youngest.

I had a chianti steak tartar for apetizer that melted in my mouth, pastarolls for starter and a fish- and seafood casserole for maincourse. You can order the starters semi-sized, and that's a wise desicion, for sure. Full-size starters will endanger your ability to stay in the game all the way to the desserts. And an Italian dinner without Tiramisu, some Formaggi or Torta is not complete.
