Expert review of L'Altro

Rustic, honest, excellent Italian food.

Following very much in the set-menu trend so common in Copenhagen, L'Atro serves authentic regional Italian dishes a world away from your standard international neighbourhood 'Italian'. This tiny, set-menu restaurant offers great value if you don't mind taking what you're given.

Food and drink: 

You'll find Umbrian and Tuscan dishes full of flavour and prepared with care here. The wine menus, oddly, offer young or old wines, but they are well chosen and reasonably generous in keeping you topped up during the meal.

Recommended dishes: 

You get what's on the set menu on the day, including an antipasto course, two pasta dishes or pasta and soup, plus a 'main' course.

Ambience: 

It's tiny but cosy and convivial, although noise from other tables can carry.

Service: 

Friendly and in the most part efficient, although the kitchen can struggle if lots of parties arrive all at the same time.

Location: 

Although not right in the centre it's walkable from the city centre.

Price advice: 

Starting at about 300kr,  it offers reasonable value, roughly double that if you want matched wines though.
