This lively, sprawling Italian brasserie is a fail-safe and (comparatively) affordable option in the ritzy Östermalm district. Flanked by eye-wateringly priced boutiques, exclusive members’ bars and see-and-be-seen night clubs, Taverna Brillo delivers a warm, homey alternative and is perfect for larger groups. The pizzas are the stars of the savoury menu, piled high with fresh ingredients that change with the seasons, but there’s a wide range of pasta, meat and fish dishes too. For desert, expect Mediterranean classics including meringue and panna cotta and a wide selection of ice creams and sorbets. There’s also a separate gelateria and a top-notch bakery-come-coffee-shop in the entrance, plus a graffiti-scrawled cocktail bar, Växthusen, at the back of the venue.
Time Out tip: For a classy pre-dinner tipple, start your night at the nearby Scandi-chic bar Kömmendören. It’s also a great eating choice, but trickier to book if there’s a big gang of you.
