I wanted a fresh, Italian place with interesting dishes and not the traditional list of pastas and pizza. Scarpetta fit the bill. The menu is small but interesting with about 20 choices. There's no extensive list of pizzas or traditional Italian cuisine. The place is open and airy. Each table has grinders and olive oil. I was seated promptly upon... More

Was here for a business dinner. The 5 course was tastefull and well prepared. Wine wasn't too expensive. The restaurant was nice but and easy to have a conversation. Might come back!

We had rented an apartment nearby and went for dinner. Loved it. We didn't try the set menu DK 275 but went for the small dishes. We had the gnocchi, ravioli, margarita pizza with prosciutto, cod and the steak. All excellent and served quickly. Recommended for a good quality meal in a pleasant setting. You will enjoy it.

I ate here as part of a very larger group. It's apparently in quite a trendy area - it is a long way out from the centre and surrounded by newly-developed flats and offices, nothing wong with it but not much atmosphere. The interior was plain and functional, nothing the matter with it but uninspiring. We had a 5 course... More

Good restaurant with usual food, located in not very convinient place. There is nothing specific in the food, but classical and good quality. We were in a big groop and did not like the personnel work, but senior manager tried hes best to improve the situation.

I was very impressed with this restaurant on a recent visit to Copenhagen . We had the 275 Dk menu which consisted of 5 courses and we found the portion sizes very generous , although they call them small plates. The flavours were very fresh and delicious with stand out dishes being the parsley and mussels soup , the pea... More

Got a bit caught out by the time! I was going to get sushi from wabi wabi but missed the kitchen (I was told earlier that it closed at 10 so as it was a lovely evening I went for a cycle and came back at 9:30) and was, however, informed that the kitchen was closed. So I decided to... More

If you're staying at STAY Hotel and are tired from a day's activities and don't want to venture back to the city center, Scarpetta is a decent option. It really is Italian small plates - we all had two or two and a half each. Very nice servers and pleasant ambiance. Portions were small - this is not a place... More

Neighbourhood Profile
In the eastern part of this neighbourhood, visitors will discover Amager Strandpark, a beach area which has become increasingly popular. It’s only a 30 minute bicycle ride or a 10 minute Metro trip away from the city center. Only a few hundred yards inland, some of the most creative musicians, artists, and writers in Copenhagen are occupying some of the old storage houses and production facilities. The western part is one of Copenhagen's most rapidly evolving areas, here you’ll find international architecture of the highest rank, the state of the art TV-Byen (the Danish pendant to BBC), a golf course as well as Copenhagen's best (and tiniest) ice bar.
