view web site ›'s insider take:

Oslo's city center is full of touristy restaurants serving ordinary pizza at shocking prices. If Italian is your goal, make the 15-minute walk (or hop the tram) to the Grünerløkka neighborhood to hit this popular eatery where gourmet wood-fired pizzas come topped with Norwegian salted beef, fava beans, and pine nuts. The cozy bar backed with subway tiles plus high ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and glass tables make the space light and bright, even on a dark Nordic day. Ask for a window seat overlooking the park (or in the summer months, snag a table outside—even better). The pizzas are quite large and can easily be shared between two people with some bolstering from one of the tasty appetizers, such as the Calabrian sausage or an antipasto plate with marinated veggies, meats, and cheeses. If you fancy a film after a dinner, there's a good indie theater right next door. And Italian classic films are screened in the restaurant—Cinema Paradiso, of course—on the first Tuesday of the month.—Terry Ward

Open Mondays and Tuesdays 8 am to 10 pm, Wednesdays through Fridays 8 am to 11 pm, and Saturdays and Sundays 10 am to 11 pm.
