Description: Il Senso is an institution for the wine lover located in the city centre of Copenhagen. We have been awarded Wine Spectators "Best of Award of Excellence in 2016" and "Award of Excellence" for 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015 and have also been voted as "Best wine bar in Copenhagen" several times. Il Senso offers a wide range of wines, and the well educated staff is always ready with information about the different producers or a specific winery. In the kitchen Il Senso's head chef is preparing traditional antipasti as well as rustic Mediterranean dishes, these will differ from month to month. Wine tastings can easily be arranged and should you need a private area in the restaurant for a group this is also possible. We look forward to hosting you.

The bar looked nice and inviting but despite not being busy it was a struggle for the waiter to find somewhere for us to sit.
We ordered 2 glasses of wine at 75kr (cheapest ) each but we were given such a small amount I thought he was giving me a taste before pouring a glass. When challenged the waiter said that they get at least 8 glasses per bottle. The next people in had the same conversation with him.

My wife found this while walking Copenhagen. Reviews looked ok so we gave it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. Staff was great, especially the head Chef who spent a lot of time talking to us. Appetizers were creative, simple and delicious. Mains were also simple. Desserts were amazing….deconstructed Tiramisu was excellent. Was just nice to go to a restaurant in Copenhagen that had some substance versus foam this or foam that. Wine list, heavily Italian, was also excellent. We ended up going back a second night. Very similar experience.

A charming restaurant with a wonderful host/owner but the food did not meet our expectations. We had the 3 course meal that included a pasta appetizer, chicken entree and dessert. The pasta was a linguini with cheery tomato and was good. The chicken entree was too heavily seasoned with thyme though the chicken itself was well cooked. The dessert was good but not exceptional.

Charming service and genuinely Italian. Not a huge menu, but the emphasis is on the wine. Having said that, though, the food is incredible and we were extremely impressed, especially when we got the bill and were pleasantly surprised by how good value it was. Thoroughly recommended.

I was here last friday with a friend for a classic italian "aperitivo". We had a truly great experience! Good wine, good food and we very much enjoyed talking to the owner Simone, who takes time to explain every wine and dish. A very cosy night and they also offered us a welcome drink! Highly recommended!!
