I've never felt compelled to write a restaurant review while visiting the wonderful restaurants of N.Y., London, Paris etc. but my family and I felt Stockholm's IL Buttero definitely deserved a shout-out. Not only is this Gamla Stan hidden gem charming, but the food is...More

This is the intimate Italian restaurant that everyone wishes was in their neighborhood. They serve authentic Italian food and wines to go with the courses. You will be jealous that they aren't around the corner from your home.

We bumped in this place by occasion. A group of 10 Italians in Stockholm for business purposes. The food quality was really outstanding. Nice atmosphere. The owner and waitress spoke Italians too. Impossible to say it was cheap considering Sweden price standards for food but,...More

The food was good, but we waited over an hour to get our food and the chairs were less than comfortable. Recommended if you are not in a hurry and don't have back aches ;)

Small restaurant in Gamla Stan has an interesting approach. There are quite a few small dishes that can make up your meal but you can also add some pasta or other mains. Service was very good. Wine list was interesting and our wine was excellent....More

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)

My husband and I ate at Il Buttero in June 2016 and thoroughly enjoyedour food. In addition to the great food, I had a chardonnay (by the glass) from Abruzzo, Italy--one of the best chardonnays I have ever had from Italy. Would you send me the name and and, possibly, a picture of the bottle? Thanks!
