Even though the restaurant Basta is situated right in the center of Stockholm’s downtown area not everyone is aware that one of the city’s best Italian restaurants is located just above them. It’s time to reveal the secret: on the top floor of the Åhléns department store, there is a superb restaurant with really good Italian food, wine, and drinks – as well as one of the city’s most amazing rooftop terraces.

During the summer of 2022, Basta opened the doors to this celestial kingdom of food. With over 140 seats on its 200 square meters under the open sky, this is an urban meeting place where you can enjoy the view of Stockholm City. In addition to the inspiring “Capri terrace” there are the same amount of places indoors, so the weather never prevents either a warming autumn lunch or a tasty Italian evening in the middle of winter.

The restaurant is decorated in a lovely, Mediterranean-inspired mix of colors and patterns. It is light and airy, seat cushions with sunny yellow lemons and matching umbrellas flanked by lemon trees in large pots give both scent and the right atmosphere. Leafy green plants, impressive chandeliers, and hand-painted plates on the walls – the whole décor is like a three-course dinner to fix your eyes on while waiting for the food.
