“Italiano vero”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

Amazing to find this litte gem in the centre of Stockholm. Very friendly service and a female owner who is very proud of her establishment. We had an excellent carpaccio as starter and the primo "Amatriciana" was also as good as in Italy. Also a nice wine list with decent prices. The only small complaint is about the mineral water. They only serve halfbottles of Pellegrino at a price of 45 SEK. 90 SEK for a litre of water is not OK. But, nevertheless it's a place you should visit if you want a good italian meal!

“A gem in Stockholm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

Went to Esperanza after having read the reviews on Tripadvisor. I was lucky to have booked a table because the restaurant is small and was fully booked. The meal was fantastic, the service professional and the owner is so nice. Had carpaccio and gnocchi which tasted so good. The price was reasonable compared to prices in Sweden. I will definetly go there again if I am every in Stockholm.

“Great food, and nice busy atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

We were in Stockholm on business, and Esperanza was recommended to us - and thanks for that! Great service by the lady of the house, who led us on to enjoy the 3 course menu, where we enjoyed carpaccio, lamb and tiramisu. The first two dishes were superb, the lamb hitting the spot so well. The tiramisu was also ok, but didn't quite live up to par in company of those other great dishes. Too bad we couldn't afford the wine menu add-on, that would probably have been lovely :)

“Nice restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

If you are looking for a 'traditional' Italian restaurant, this will be not the right place. They had no pizzas and olny 1-2 pasta dishes. Despite this, Esperanza is a very nice and romantic restaurant in Stockholm city center. The prices are high and the dishes are not very big, but delicious. Try tiramisu and panacota (one of the best panna cotta's I've ever tasted). The red wine (from Sicilia) was also perfekt. If you want something special dont miss it.
