This Södermalm Italian is hidden away in one of south Stockholm’s dingier streets, but is worth seeking out. Less obviously exclusive than Divino or Goccia, it serves ambitious food in a low-key environment.
Prices are more reasonable, since you are paying just for delicious food and not (as in parts of Östermalm) for a particularly elite location or interior. Having said this, there’s little to criticize about the restaurant’s design – with plenty of candlelight and low ceilings, the overall feel is one of warm relaxation and ease.
Tiny, it crams in tables almost on top of each other, but this is all part of the homely atmosphere, and people are less interested in checking out others than enjoying intimate conversations with their date. Pasta favourites, a relaxed mood and reasonable prices make this a good alternative to Östermalm’s two Italians.
