On Västerlånggatan, in the middle of Old Town in Stockholm, you’ll find Little Italy. Restaurant Agaton serves a mix of Swedish traditional home-cooked food and Italian delicacies. Here you can enjoy creamy pasta dishes, freshly baked pizzas, and entrees such as bruschetta, white wine-cooked mussels, and beef fillet carpaccio. There are also classic meat and fish dishes, risotto, and various salads.

The Don Corleone atmosphere is enhanced by round tables with red and white checkered tablecloths, vault walls dating back to the 16th century, and candles. It’s homely, cozy, and warm. Enjoy the food with red grapes from Tuscany and finish with originals such as tiramisu and lemon cake. Restaurant Agaton is perfect for both romantic dates, business lunches, and food-loving parties who want to have a good dinner. In the summer there is also a nice outdoor terrace.

Imagine The Godfather meets Sunday dinner at Grandma’s. Lady and the Tramp. Slow cooking. Rustic countryside. Casual and familiar. Dream away to the coast of Sicily, wave your hands, and toast to love. End the evening with a glass of grappa and a slow stroll along the cobbled streets of Old Town. The only thing missing is an accordion playing in the background.

Restaurang Agaton – enjoy the perfect mix of Italy and Sweden in Stockholm’s Old Town

Pasta, pizza, Piccolo Piatti, and tiramisu. Restaurant Agaton serves all that and more on red and white checkered tablecloths in the heart of Stockholm’s Old Town (Gamla stan).

In Old Town, among alleys and cobblestones, you’ll find Restaurant Agaton. The historic building has housed many types of businesses over the years – from offices to haberdashery. In 1999, the fashion store Agaton transformed into a restaurant and kept the same name. Today, more than 20 years later, it’s known as a culinary bastard of Swedish and Italian cuisines.

At Restaurant Agaton, the food is prepared with love and care. The menu offers classic home cooking, fresh pasta dishes, and freshly baked pizzas. Botanize among starters such as bruschetta, beef fillet carpaccio, or ‘Swedish Flavors’ – a mix of Skagen, herring, pickled salmon, and Västerbotten cheese.

“It’s usually popular to start with a Piccolo Piatti (‘Before Food’) and order grilled garlic bread, marinated olives, and then go into the main course,” says Roland Sürer, restaurant manager at Agaton. The à la carte menu offers a selection of meat and fish dishes, risotto, pasta, and salads.

“We have a generous menu that strives to satisfy all stomachs and taste preferences – from classic Italian to Swedish home cooking. A big favorite is our antipasto with charcuterie, and of course the pasta. Authentic Italian pasta that warms the soul,” says Roland Sürer.

All pizzas are baked with real Tipo flour and topped with mozzarella cheese, San Marzano tomatoes, and Fior di Latte cheese. The flavors are a mixture of the sea, the forest, and the restaurant’s own spice garden. Of course, there are also gluten-free and vegetarian pizzas to choose from.

The icing on the cake is the dessert menu with Italian classics such as tiramisu, vanilla panna cotta, and lemon cake, topped with Swedish wild berries. Italian grapes dominate the wine menu with red specialties from Tuscany and white from Sicily.

The atmosphere exudes little Italy with round tables decorated with red-and-white checkered tablecloths and candles, stone vaults, colorful paintings, and crystal chandeliers. It is warm, cozy, and homely in both aesthetics and reception. The rumor says cheerful and funny staff with service in a genuine Italian way.

“The premises date back to the 16th century, which is reflected in the atmosphere. There are history and personality deeply rooted in the walls,” says Roland, and also tells that the restaurant took its name from a hairdressing salon that was previously located in the same spot.

Every week the lunch menu changes with an exciting selection of traditional Swedish food, fish, and pasta. There’s also a set weekly menu with vegetarian options, meatballs, and various salads. In other words, there’s something for everyone. The portions are plentiful, and the lunch always includes a salad from the salad buffet and homemade bread with butter. Stop by between 11 am and 2 pm and try for yourself.

Towards evening, larger groups come for after work, business dinners, and family gatherings. Above all, Agaton is the perfect place for a date a la Lady and the Tramp with a romantic environment and cozy cobblestone alleys right outside the door – it’s like it was made for slow walks in the summer night. And if you prefer to enjoy an Italian evening at home, you can order home delivery food via services such as Foodora and Uber Eats.
