Reserved a table based on the positive reviews, but I was hugely disappointed. I was expecting an authentic experience, but in reality service was terrible. Owners seemed to be more focused on the take-away customers. Pizza was average at best and music came from the...TV. You can find better places for pizza in Kungsholmen. Not recommendedMore

Me and a mate found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. It's about a 20 minute walk from central station in the Kungsholmen district which some might think is a little too far. However don't be put off by distance, the experience will well be worth...it. After all It's really easy to get around Stockholm by tram, subway, electric scooter etc. We actually really enjoyed the walk into a less busy part of town and discovered some new places to explore along the way. The atmosphere was great - there were a few groups of people in there, locals and other tourists. Dim lighting which made it really cosy. The service from Umberto was fantastic - he was really attentive, welcoming and great to speak with. He recommended certain dishes and couldn't be more helpful.It felt like being invited into somebody's home, which made it a wonderful experience. The food - for the quality of the food we actually felt like we underpaid. In the heart of town you can end up paying hefty prices for average food. It seems if you wander a little out you will pay a reasonable price for top quality food. You will not get better authentic Italian food anywhere else than this restaurant . Hot, fresh, full of flavour and great portion sizes. We wanted to pay more! Overall, this was our favourite restaurant from the whole trip. Great value, great service, great food and a great experience. Also, the restaurant ensures tables are spread out and diners maintain social distancing at all times. Umberto - we'll be back soon friend!More

If your looking for a basic well cooked Italian meal for a reasonable cost and don’t need to be in the absolute center of town, this is the place to go. The waiter (owner?) was a lovely and considerate person who made it his job...to make sure we were happy with the food and drinks. We were :)More

Tror the set meny, and we had Burrata and Mussels which north tasted very well. Risotto, Pasta and Gambas was also really nice. And Tiramisu för dessert also Good. Chockat mousse is to be Musses though. So overall a very Good dinner, with nice and...friendly service. We will surely be back here and recommend this för dinner. Prices are fair as well.More

I was only for one day In Stockholm and I'll take there friends from Sweden. They don't know that restaurant but we were absolutely shocked how good was there. Pizza was excellent, staff was friendly and nice and at the end the bill wasn't big.

The restaurant is a short distance from the Courtyard hotel, only 5 minutes away in a residential area. We got a deal by booking online with Tripadvisor and were greeted as soon as we entered. Food is excellent, we had pizzas but probably that we...could have shared 1 for 2 as we could not finish them unfortunately. I am sure it’s possible to take away the rest but we did not ask for it. Service is perfect, booking is probably better as the place is apparently well known and many people arrived. Be sure you are hungry!More

My husband and I were on our honeymoon this past week. We spent a few of our days in the Stockholm area, traveling everywhere by foot. We wanted pizza the night before we left so we found II Picchio. We had the Diavola pizza with...tiramisu for dessert. They were both excellent. The employees were all so pleasant as well.More
