We enjoyed a 7-course menu which was really delicious and well-prepared. Moreover, the restaurant is very cosy, the waiters very friendly and accomodating. This restaurant is definately a visit worth if you are in the mood for authentic italian food. In addition, Il Grapolo Blu has an excellent and well-equiped wine cellar where you can taste very good wines which... More

Thank you May-Britt, Peppe and Alfredo for an amazing BBB night with you. The 3 B's stands for Beer, Beef and Brunello. What a great concept to explore the ultimate taste of Italian gourmet food and wine. We started with an ice cold Peroni and home made crispy pizza bread. Then Peppe carefully prepared the two first Brunello di Montalcino's... More

It's always a challenge to find gluten free dining in a foreign country, and even more difficult to find good gf options. At Il Grappolo Blu, the food was superb, and the wine selection was excellent. We began our meal with generous glass of a velvety Brunello and my husband ordered the gf pizza. The crust was perfectly crispy while... More

Might not look like a top restaurant from the outside - but don't be fooled - the Michelin stickers around the door tells a different story... The interior might be old and dark, the room acoustic might not be the best, and the decor might be a bit outdated... BUT all of that dont matter - because they can cook... More

Best Italien restaurant north of the alps - maybe I exaggerate a bit, but the atmosphaere, the food, the wine and the staff played so very well together - that you leave the restaurant with a happy smile on your face

We were staying in Copenhagen for a week and this restaurant happened to be around the corner so we gave it a try. My wife and I had a main course and 1 glass of wine each. The standard was certainly acceptable and the female proprietor came by and and we told her that everything was fine. Before the bill... More

Dear 'caseyqc' Congratulations and thank you for the one review you have made on TripAdvisor. You made trouble from the second you entered our restaurant. Our two waiters refused going to your table after you insulted them both in the worst way possible. To make us explain to you the difference between veal and beef is simple, but if you... More
