Good and friendly service. Had the 4 course menu with traditional italian dishes, and wine package. Good food, wines were excellent and presented nicely by the waiter.

Two of us indulged in the prix fixe 4 course Italian banquet at Famo, enjoying delicious flavors (antipasti including a salt cured beef, bruschetta, polenta and salad; lasagna featuring beef and pork; main dish of pork; and a delicious pane cotta for dessert). The wine flight was a wonderful accompaniment! The staff was attentive and explained the food and techniques... More

...so I was walking down Vesterbrogade in late afternoon, looking for a place where I could spend time before my appointment, and saw the two tables on the pavement, in front of FAMO. I walked inside to order a drink but couldn't spot any member of staff, when suddenly a guy stood behind me, reached out his hand and said:... More

We went back after a gap of about 10 years, and found it's still just as great as we remembered it !!

Great wine, wonderful eating experience, fantastic decor. Not for people looking for a big feed or cheap prices, but if you're a foodie and you can afford it, then it's a must.

This is a ¨feelgood¨place for people that like Italian cooking and food. The preset menu is limited, but it does not matter when the kitchen is flexible and interested in keeping their guests happy. The service at the table was excellent and quite Italian. I liked that a lot. We got very tasty pre-pre starters and pre-starters and the Cannelloni... More

We came back here to celebrate another birthday. Still a very good place, charming and knowledgebale waiters and waitresses, but one should not take everything for granted. The cook that evening had obviously a love affair with his salt cellar I would have preferred not to be involved in. It was only one vegetable (pumpkin with the main course) where... More

Went there following advices, but deceived. The set up menu is not exceptional, too say something. Antipasti elaborated but not delicious. Pasta too fancy, not real italian. Main course deceiving. We had guinea fowl breast in a vegie sauce...taste as regular chicken breast with creamie sauce. All together a bit pretentious? Definitively not worth the money. Service outstanding! Very kind...

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
