I went to have dinner and it was so great! The food, the wine, and the attention, couldn’t be better. I am living in Denmark and this was definitely the best Italian restaurant of the country! Thank you very much for the amazing dinner

Small place where you can feel real Italian athmosphere in Copenhagen. Far away from modern Nordic cuisine, but it only make it more attractive. Good Italian-style service and hospitality and chef’s risotto is absolutely worth of tasting.

Italian restaurant with small but cozy location; the food was good and the price honest, considering the average of CPH. Friendly service but a bit slow.

Vi har nu åbnet dorene til Kobenhavns nyeste og smukkest indrettede italienske restaurant. Det er med stor glaede, at vi kan tilbyde vores gaester mad tilberedt af vores dygtige kokke. På RetroGusto er kvaliteten i hojsaedet og vi gor vores til at jeres besog bliver en unik oplevelse, hver gang. Og selvfolgelig er vores mad kun lavet af friske råvarer - råvarer som vi kan stå inde for. RetroGusto betyder eftersmag på italiensk, men navnet beskriver også indretningsstilen i vores restaurant. Her har vi leget med retro-tapeter og designerlamper fra 70'erne kombineret med moderne mobler. Menukortet byder på nyfortolkninger af klassiske italienske retter som laves efter saesonens råvarer. Menuen skifter jaevnligt, da den laves efter hvad kokken vaelger på de daglige indkob. Vores vine kommer fra små producenter, da vi ikke gider "Coca Cola vine". Mange af vinene er i ovrigt okologiske eller biodynamiske og vores sommelier (Gianluigi Castaldo) er uddannet fra AIS sommelierskole i Italien og giver kyndig vejledning. Også vinkortet aendres ofte.
