I forgot the old adage never to have food on the most touristy street in town. Paganini proves this point - a lovely hostess and server cannot mask the tripe they serve. Crappy mozzarella and vegetable salad. Rubbery pasta with no eggplant. I thought it...More

Not a lot of places open on Christmas Eve. We made reservations online and even though we confirmed, the system had the wrong time. Nonetheless, they accommodated our family of 5. Vibrant atmosphere. Perfect for Christmas Eve. Good food.

We were there for lunch. Some of us ate pasta which was well cooked and tasty and I tried fish (cod). That was very well served and delicious.

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.
