Video: Barabba Pasta & Natural Wine Heaven in Copenhagen

The contemporary Italian restaurant Barabba is one of our favorite hangouts in Copenhagen. Head chef Marco Cappelletti’s pastas are some of the most sinful in town, loaded with buttery sauces, and often topped with generous amounts of truffles or caviar. They also have one of the best natural wine cellars in town (and that’s saying a lot considering Copenhagen just might be the natural wine capital of the world). Serragghia, Christian Tschida, The Other Right, and Momento Mori, are just a few of the top producers we regularly choose off the shelves here. The stellar wine list, paired with the fact that this is one of the few places open late (even on Sundays), makes Barabba a prime industry hangout. But it’s not just the food and the wine that makes this place so special – it’s also the vibe. With sommelier and co-owner Riccardo Marcon as your host, you’re guaranteed to have a great night – and guaranteed to drink a lot of grappa.

PS: A pro tip at Barabba is to ask for the off-menu item spaghettoni with anchovy butter and caviar. It’s like heaven on earth!

  • We visited Barabba few days ago and I think we enjoyed Serragghia equal much as Kaitlin did. MARCO CAPPELLETTI told us that he always became very happy when guests ordered it! Tried the 4 courses of pasta, all very good!
