Best Italian Restaurants in Stockholm

Stockholm loves a great Italian restaurant and lucky for both city dwellers and visitors the Italian restaurant scene is not just growing but also getting better and better all the time.

Last updated:

Italian cuisine, which made its way to Stockholm quite a few decades ago, was originally seen as pizza, pasta, and maybe some more pizza. Spaghetti Bolognese and lasagna played supporting roles… to pizza. But while we’ll never turn down a top-notch pizza things have changed and Mamma Mia! Those changes have us drooling. Here are Stockholm’s best Italian restaurants.

01

Il Molo

Il Molo is one of Stockholm’s best Italian restaurants

Do you want to eat delicious Italian food right in the heart of Stockholm? Then you should head to Il Molo, located inside the mall Gallerian in the city center. Here you’ll find dishes from all over Italy – from north to south – and the menu has something for everyone, whether you’re in the mood for meat, fish, pasta, or something else. And don’t miss Il Molo’s amazing pizzas with delicious toppings and a dough that has fermented for almost four days.

Trattorian

Sure, this fantastic little gem has pizza on the menu but this is the kind of pizza where the recipe is defended to the death. It really is that good – but if you’re in the mood for something a bit more upscale the menu will not disappoint. How about some potato crisp and truffle dip to whet your appetite, followed by a fig, prosciutto & pine nut antipasti? Then maybe some goat cheese, sage & amaretti ravioli? Yes, our mouths are watering as well.

Papa

Papa on Riddargatan

Started by Angelo Ottobre back in 1989 Papa and sister restaurant Italiano are still run by Angelo’s family today. The staff is Italian, the food is Italian, the atmosphere is Italian – and this is some of the best Italian food you’ll find outside of Italy. The classic Saltimbocca all Romana is a house specialty and we recommend trying the Pappardelle al Ragù di Cinghiale, which includes while boar, pancetta, red wine, and baby spinach. The wine list is near perfection.
