Food and drink
While there is pasta and pizza on the menu, Scarpetta is not your bog standard internationalised Italian, and offers plenty of authentic dishes made from scratch.
There are three whites and eight red wines (Italian, natch) on offer, most of them available by the glass.
Expect things like chicken and lentil soup; pork with cheese, fresh herbs, brown butter and balsamic vinegar; or selected fresh cheeses with toasted nuts and quince jam.
You're not paying for luxury and yes the atmosphere and the decor reflect that somewhat but the white drapes, chairs and tables make it light and feel a bit more spacious that it is. It's a prefectly enjoyable place to eat.
Efficient, slightly brusque at times, but welcoming enough.
Yes, OK, so the location is quite a way out of the town centre, but it's still worth the trip if you want good Italian food at very reasonable prices.
The five-course set menu (275 krone) offers really excellent value and is a good sample of the breadth of the food here.
