Description: 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.

Visited RetroGusto as a walk-in
Food was well cooked and well presented.
Had the risotto (asparagus) to start.
Accompanied with homemade focaccia bread and olive oil which were delicious.
Main course was the slow cooked Pork with mash potato, chickpea purée and a wonderful sauce. Pork was so tender a beautiful dish
Dessert was ok nothing special panna cotta
Service was efficient, informative
Price for this was on the more expensive side. Although food was well cooked and presented just a little expensive.

During my 5-month stay in Copenhagen I had many dinners at Retrogusto, Why? first of all the quality of food, high-standard meet, fresh homemade pasta/lasagna and bio vegetables. Furthermore as I got familiar with the staff in such cozy restaurant I knew that the Italian chef is a fish expert, and I really appreciated his plates, "pesce del giorno" was my main choice most of the time.
The Manager is a master in Wine, really! He explained me whenever I asked for some advice and the combination food-wine he suggested never failed.
Price.. Copenhagen is an expensive city, and turists may take into account that. Danish alcohol taxes push up the cost of beverage. But living there I proved that price/quality ratio is top at Retrogusto.
So, Let's Try, It's worth it!

We had a lovely experience at this restaurant. We first got a table next to the door and were feeling a bit cold as it was winter time. However, a friendly waitress handled the situation nicely and moved us to another table. I really recommend the lasagne which was excellent. Nice atmosphere and simple dished with great flavors without too much complexity.

I was in Copenaghen for business and it had excellent reviews so I tried: The food is very good, the ingredients are carefully selected and very tasty, and the wine is superb. If you let the owner guide you in the selection of the wine, you will have an amazing experience. Definitely recommended!

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.
