The place is cozy and rustic, the staff we met were friendly, and the food was amazing at a reasonable cost. We had tomato soup and mussels for starters, both were gorgeous and incredibly flavorful. I could have gorged on those mussels for hours. A generous chunk of tiramisu for dessert made up for the fact that only a single,... More

Booked a table for 4 but first they didn't understand we had a booking made... This was prior to the Van Morrison show which meant we didn't have too long. Ordered 2 bottled of their red house wine which was very good, however we got no water and had to remind the only waiter a few times. Ordered meat which... More

I had expected a standard, decent and Classic Italian restaurant when I booked the table for me and my my sisters family. I was pleasantly surprised when the dishes were well prepared, excellently presented and there were some unique experiences like their dessert - raspberry panna cotta. The setting is ok..nothing exceptional and the waiter only speaks English - but... More

Easy to reach, a familiar and warm little place, with funny and very kind waiters, but most important the food...ahhhh...i suggest gnocchi with gonrgonzola and at least 2 glasses of Montepulciano D'Abruzzo...take the tiramisù at the end! Great experience guys!

I've been at Cortigiano Restaurant 2 weeks agò, during my journey in Copenhagen. I'm Italian and I found in this restaurant a little piece of Italy. Good cooking and service, the same atmosphere as I were in Italy. I highly recommend it.

I've been in "Il cortigiano" with friends. Carpaccio of salmon and filetto are tasty and tender. We drunk a chianti of good quality at nice price. The Italian waiter is nice and polite. Like a traditional italian restaurant.

We visited the restaurant on a Wednesday evening and there it almost empty. I thought maybe it was a bad sign, but we were pleasantly surprised. We ordered both starters and main dishes and all the food was beautifully served and was very well prepared and the house wine was better than expected. Can only recommend this place.

Dropped by for a fast meal recently. First time even though living close by. Waiter found a table to us easily even though quite busy. We all ordered veal dish (one dish only) and were not disappointed. Everything on the dish was really good - meat, vegetables and the two potatoes (would not have minded one or two more though)....

Am quite impressed once again that it's possible to get a very decent 2-course meal for just about 20 Euros - that is, if you book in advance. This gives you a discount of 50% - well worth the call or sending an email. Including a glass of kirr-like welcome drink on the house. And the quality of food, friendly... More

In Frederiksberg you’ll find Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen.
