Situated on one of Stockholm most touristy streets one would expect mediocre food and poor service but it is one of the best italien restaurants i Stockholm. Try the spaghetti frutti di mare. Wow!

The ambiente is what makes the place. The food is good but not more than slightly above average. In my point of view way to expensive for what you get. Though there was nothing to complain! Subjectiv feeling..

This restaurant is fantastic, not only because of the amazing food, but also the because the service is impeccable. The staff were attentive, but not over-bearing (a brilliant combination). The food was unbelievable- the presentation, the portion size and the the flavours were all perfect! Our server the first night, Julius was extremely friendly and really looked after us. He... More

Excellent and kind service, great food. When I entered, they gave me a choice of sitting in the louder or quieter space. Open late.

Let me start by saying the food was delicious and a great pairing with the wine. Absolutely phenomenal. Located on the old town in Stockholm, this is real gem. Some would argue the place is expensive, however if you consider the quality of the food, wine and service; I say it is worth every Cent your spent.

Great restaurant in a beautiful part of town. We went there for a romantic dinner and had a wonderful time. The food was really good and honest Italian. Drinks were really good, great selection of wine by the glass as well as bottles. Service was wonderful. We are definitely going there again!

A lovely restaurant in a great location in Gamla Stan. The staff were friendly and as we were early we managed to get a window seat. Although this is an Italian restaurant be aware that its a proper one...no pizzas here. Side orders were extra and the whole meal was quite expensive although this is a reflection on Sweden rather...

We did not book, but arrived quite early, we were first there and shown to a window seat - good sales move. The restaurant did start to fill, although was far from full. Tables a little close together for my liking in the window area. Service was attentive and exceptionally helpful, providing explanations of the meals and beers on offer,... More

Food Inspired by Italy
We serve you delicious food inspired from Italy. Daytime served an estimated lunch of Swedish cuisine, the evening an exciting a la carte menu. The first and most important requirement for us are top-quality ingredients. Here we are, and have always been uncompromising.
If you are a larger company that arranged the menu suggestions, or you will certainly agree with the chef about what suits you best, welcome in both the evening as lunch.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
