Cicchetti means small snacks or side dishes in Italian, which is exactly what this gem of a restaurant on Nørrebro will serve you. The menu changes weekly, sometimes even daily, depending on the seasonal produce and which products are available. They, of course, also have a great natural wine selection to go with your meal.
Omar and Safari are cosy, intimate, and inviting restaurants located in Nørrebro. These two sister restaurants are local gems that serve ambitious food and good wine for very reasonable prices.
Denmark’s only three-Michelin-starred restaurant has also got natural wine on its menu (although not exclusively). In fact, they have four different wine pairing menus to go with the food menu. If you want natural wine, go for the “Heart & Soil” one. And yes, you’ll need to book a table in advance!
Tiny, Italian, laid-back bars and casual eateries located next to each other serve natural wines, excellent negronis, creamy burrata, and crispy focaccia and are filled to the brim with cosy vibes.

In fact, the two places are located just around the corner from each other. At Admiralgade 26, the wine is accompanied by a cuisine that is low-key but with an edge.
A favourite hang-out spot of local chefs and said to be the best modern Italian restaurant in Copenhagen. Is more convincing really needed? The atmosphere at Barabba is vibrant and relaxed, and the menu is complemented by an ambitious wine menu with wines from a wide array of terroirs around the world.
Mes is a restaurant with a large selection of wine from Jura. This was once a winemaking region in France that was frowned upon. Now, it’s the hippest of the hip. Jura is like the Burgundy of the natural wine movement.
Richard Hart, the man behind the famous and innovative bakery, Hart Bageri, has once again opened a bread-heaven located in the heart of Christianshavn named Hart Brød+Bar.

At POPL, they’ve got a simple but delicious menu consisting of burgers, seasonally based sides and a list of their favourite beers, cocktails and wines including a great selection of natural wines.
A cosy little, village-like wine bar that does one dish a day (to take home or to eat in) at an excellent price. If you’re eating in, there’s plenty of wine to choose between, and the staff will guide you through the menu. If you’re waiting for your dinner to go, you can also choose to grab a glass of “waiting wine” for a mere 25 kr.
Il Buco started as a small import business that hosted occasional Italian pop-up dinners for friends. Now it’s a fully-fledged café and restaurant with an ever-growing import business, including wine. All-natural, all Italian, all very drinkable. Go for dinner or just share a bottle of bubbles with friends in the courtyard.
Spisestuen is an interpretation of a modern and local dining and wine lounge hidden in Sydhavnen, an up-and-coming neighbourhood by the harbour of Copenhagen. Here they make unpretentious, tasty food and serve mouthwatering natural wines.
