We found Tromso prices to be ridiculously high. This restaurant was reasonably priced by comparison and the pasta was filling and tasted good.

You have to do it all yourself, like McDonalds. The menu doesn't say what kind of pasta they serve - not that it matters - this is not food for humans. The Manzo had no Parma ham, the bread was at least 3 days old and the "chef" had no idea what he was doing. Please do not spend your money here!

I think if I had open a can of ketchup and pour it into some overcooked pasta in my hotel room it would have been better. I have never eaten such a horrible dish of pasta...for 20€!!!
They say the pizzas are ok, but I didn't try them. Terrible waste of money and apetite!
Better buy something at the bakery or supermarket, don't waste your money!
ps: the service tries to be nice, they speak english and have a menu in english

Nice restaurant, good pasta options and price too. We went here pretty late. The restaurant was 70% full which reflects its popularity. Ideally located, nice interiors. The chef was a bit less interested or may be was busy. Recommended and happy to revisit.

I am giving this 5 out of 5 as this place represents exceptional value for Tromso and indeed anywhere in Norway.
The food is freshly cooked, nicely presented, easy to understand menu, helpful staff, and very tasty too!
And prices are very reasonable by Norwegian standards. It was just what we needed after travelling around Scandinavia for over a week eating good quality but expensive food. Here was tasty, good sized portions of Italian pasta and pizza.
Children's menu looked good as well.
As someone else has mentioned it is very similar in concept to Vapianos in London.
