This place is great. There wasn't a single frown in the place....and why not? It is so friendly, I could live here. I was treated very well. My server enthusiastically introduced me to the owner of the restaurant, and they showed me all the upstairs dining rooms.
They have a huge menu. In fact they have a drink menu that is separate from the meals. Starters (79-128 SEK or $8-$13) include breads, seafood, meat or soup. I had Bruschetta Alla Romana (Bruschetta bread) that was fantastic. They have home made pastas (117-135 SEK or $12-$14) that have all variations of pasta (pasta rolls, ravioli, spaghetti, etc) with cream sauces, red sauces, seafood, meat, and mushrooms. I had Spaghetti Alla Matriciana (Spaghetti Carbonara) that was spaghetti in cream sauce with bacon and tomato slices. It was terrific. They also have fish entrees (225-245 SEK) and meat entrees (228-273 SEK).
I saw enormous cuts of grilled fish brought to the table next to me, with awesome looking boiled (and peeled) potatoes.
They pay close attention to small details that matter. There are fresh flowers and candles everywhere. They also have fun with ceramics, and have namesake wine krugs, cheese containers, and plates. These are available for sale.
The service was fantastic and friendly as well. They showed me all around the restaurants, including the six dining rooms (in addition to the main dining room) that are available for private parties. This place is very popular. It is always busy. However, it is a large place, so waits are not too long. Since it is popular, it is kind of loud. But with their separate dining rooms, I'll bet they would accommodate a quiet dinner.
Location is one block away from the Gamla Stan train/subway station, which is only one stop from Central Station and the Sheraton.
