At Mancini, a family restaurant since 1988, one breathes the air of home and all good things. It’s sufficient to start with some sautéed homemade sausages (sopping up sauce with bread is a must), or two fine slices of prosciutto. The pastas are always well cooked, in season truffles are the true and intense ones (finally!), rightly proposed in the most classic ways, topping tagliolini, and fried eggs alike. Among the meats, the lamb certainly stands out, together with the juicy venison, or a remarkable selection of cheeses, as well as a choice of extra virgin olive oils that are very hard to find in Italy. Claudio Mancini is an excellent host and the same can be said of Giancarlo Clark, sommelier and director of the cellar containing only delicious Italian wines, with 2,000 bottles, boasting meticulous skill and care. Italian cuisine around the world needs restaurants like this. For all this, Mancini won the Guardian of Tradition Award in our 2020 edition. This is by far the best Italian restaurant in Sweden. Don’t forget to try the homemade gelato before leaving.
