Italia - La Vecchia Signora  Tivoli

Trattoria - Pizzeria - Forno a legna


On a very busy friday in Tivoli gardens we chose to stand in line for a table at this italian restaurant. Since Tivoli was completely full of people, so was all the restaurants too. We hand´t booked ahead and because we were 7 people, we waited aprox 40 min to be seated. It was however worth the wait. I found the menu classic italian with various Antipasti, Pasta, Pesce, Carne and Pizze :-). We all had a go on their pizzas, and I have to say they were fantastic. Perfectly crispy and all the toppings were clear in taste and appearance - well done. I am normally not a pizza guy, but this was really a treat. Prices seamed very fair and we paid around 140,- to 150,- Dkr. per pizza. Service was quick and friendly, even though the restaurant was packed and people were waiting in line outside. The restaurant manager was kind enough to help me find a power outlet for my iPhone, when he at the same time had a lot to do. I really appreciate when they do this little extra for their guests. I look forward to coming here again and explore others parts of the menu.

“Authentic italian inside Tivoli gardens”

This restaurant is inside Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. We ventured in when a waiter saw us looking hesitant and greeted us with an ope"ning door. I'm so glad he did! Our waiter answered each of our questions, such as spaghetti bolognese being on the kids menu but not on the entree menu. Yes! It is available. And a few, more difficult ones. Just a bit of culture clash and he did a good job. We love Italian food. We've eaten it in many countries. This was as good as anything we've found at home (even our favorites) and nearly as good as what we've found in Italy! My husband ordered a salad with goat cheese on toast, mixed greens, assorted veggies and honey walnuts. Fabulous. But even splitting it, we only finished half because it's huge. I had tagliatelle with ham, peas and cream sauce - their english description. I would've called it carbonara, but I don't think the menu did. It was fabulous. Almost my best ever....except that pesky place in Italy that keeps it from coming in number 1 on my list. My husband had the spaghetti bolognese and he really liked it. High praise from him. Tasty bread for a starter. And if you order water you actually get a pitcher! Service was attentive, but might be a bit slow for some. Tell them if you're in a hurry. Bottom line... loved it and would pay the Tivoli fee to get in again".

"Buona pizza e atmosfera tutta italiana in un ristorante nel cuore dello splendido parco divertimenti Tivoli.
Personale cortese e posto accogliente.

Forse un cucchiaino di zucchero nell salsa non guasterebbe... un po' acidognola... ma nel complesso un ottima pizza.

Magari 18 euro a pizza e' un po' altino anche per Copenhagen...
