Villa 22 Trattoria & Bar is a casual Italian eatery with Nordic influences, located on the waterfront in Vågen. I immediately noticed some similarities to restaurant Bæst in Copenhagen, and it turned out the assistant head chef, Daniel Lund, had, in fact, worked there previously. Head chef Nina Sviland cooks food with great flavor combinations and top quality produces. Like the homemade tagliatelle in a creamy mussel sauce with huge chunks of king crab, squid from Denmark, black olive tapenade and dill. The pizza was no less perfect, with those delicious burnt spots from the woodfired oven, spicy n’duja sauce, potatoes and the same mozzarella from Osterverket in Lillesand that Renaa Xpress also used. You can go to Villa 22 for the pizza alone, or have the full Italian sharing experiences with lots of small dishes and antipasti.
