Visiting Stockholm needed a family 'tourist' lunch. We were warmly greeted, children very welcome. Food nicely cooked. Prices very reasonable 'Swedish lunch time menu' recommended. Toilets were better than one becomes used to - well done to them! Definite recommendation - will certainly return.

Top Italian restaurant in gamla Stan. Their parpadelle with meat and truffles is amazing. I would definitely recommend it and might come back again before I travel.

Ate here on a long weekend visit to Stockholm for our wedding anniversary and were pleasantly surprised. We turned up without a booking on a weekend evening, but the owners managed to squeeze us in and didn't rush us even though the table was reserved...More

Friendly and efficient staff at this busy Italian restaurant. We enjoyed 4 different pastas - tomato & eggplant, veal meat balls, carbonara and duck tortellini - all well cooked and recommended. A little pricey but you are in the heart of Stockholm.

I think Paganini was a violinist, right? A classical fiddler of the highest order.... We didn't eat here, but we did wander in for an aperitif during our stroll around Stockholm's beautiful Gamla Stan (Old City). I know Scandinavia is expensive. I know Gamla Stan...More

You're in the old town area and it's bustling. You get the tourist table to be in the mix. It is what it is. Enjoy. Good vibe and service. All good, just not memorable.

Had lunch here and was very impressed with quality of the food and how great we were treated .. by Emilio. Felt like we were with family even in a foreign place. If in old town Stockholm, this did not feel like a tourist trap....More

We stopped late afternoon (5:15 PM) to have an early dinner. A nicely appointed dining room and a friendly owner, who seated us and talked with us. Service was prompt, but the pasta lacked a little taste -- needed some "oomph" helped a little by...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)

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.
