Bottega is a restaurant located next to Christianshavns Torv in Copenhagen which serves Southern Italian food. Apart from the restaurant at Christianshavn a branch has opened in Charlottenlund north of Copenhagen, and they have taken over the old newspaper kiosk at Christianshavs Torv which is now an Italian coffee bar with snacks and drinks in the summer evenings.

The reason I had to write a location on Bottega is that they make the best pizza I’ve ever had outside of Italy. In fact they are so good that I walk or ride my bike the five kilometres, passing more than 30 pizzarias on the way, every time I go to buy pizza – I don’t want anything else. The pizzas are deliciously thin in a Naepolitan spirit with great toppings made from the best produce. Here you cannot choose the topping of your pizza or leave out something. The pizzas are served as the chefs decide, and that’s that.

Apart from pizzas Bottega has a menu like a traditional Southern Italian trattoria. The dishes are quite cheap and the service is top notch. You can eat at the restaurant or order to go. If you do the latter the dishes are typically 40-50 DKR (6€) cheaper, and if the weather is good I would recommend going down to the canals and eating on the quayside watching the boats sailing by.

    @azurblue: I haven't tried their coffee, but I would guess that it is just as good as anything else..! And you should come to Denmark, but you should wait until it is summer, now everything is grey and cold.

    I'm just quickly peeking at this before I head on off to class but I just want you to know that you've made me very hungry, and I'm now considering stopping to get a slice of New York pizza for breakfast...though it's not as thin as the pizza you have there. :(
