Worst place I have ever been to! I went there today and ordered a risotto. The risotto was so salty I could not eat it. I tried anyway since I was hungry, but it was just impossible, even though I had a glass of water after every bite. I tried to catch a waiter without success. When I left, I... More

On a nice quiet side street just off the main shopping district, Il Giardino is a very nice restaurant with a varied menu and excellent food and service. Was there on a Saturday and was not crowded at all.

An unfriendlier host you will be hard-pressed to find. I regret not walking out after he was extremely rude to me when i asked basic questions about the menu. Supposed to get salad bar with the pasta, but salad bar was empty. Horrible food - ate two bites and left. Pasta tasted like it was out of a can. Fruitii... More

In a way it is central but a bit off. I had the pasta of the day and it was ok. The restaurant is very nice inside and has a large outdoor pleasant part for eating. The owner was very customeroriented

Hi, me and my wife decided to have lunch on the weekend. We tried the spagetti Frutti di mare which was OK, a bit expensive though. I tried the Gamberoni con salsa (230 sek) which was very expensive considering the taste and portion size which I received. The bread also was terrible, it was sticky and there was no rise... More

I had a late lunch here with familiy in January. We got a nice deal at bookatable. Quite cozy place. Friendly and prompt service. Food quality was average Italian (I am quite picky - if you want a reference, i.e. average does not mean bad) Location is good for tourists e.g. Recommended.

The restaurant is casual, cozy and affordable. More on the intimate side so i recommend going here for dinner with your family or companion but not with your friends. The food is very basic, you get a sallad and some bread as an included starter, then we had pasta and pizza and everyone gladly finished their plates, however no one... More
