”Lazy Sunday” is the pizza party you’ve been dreaming of!

Sundays were created with one purpose and one purpose only in mind: To relax! It’s the one day of the week where it’s more than okay to sleep in, watch Netflix in bed and add an extra spoonful of sugar to your coffee. It’s also a day where you rarely have the energy to cook up dinner in your own kitchen.

That’s why we’ve invented ”Lazy Sunday” at our Nørrebro based trattoria Gran Torino – a culinary backyard experience that echoes the mood from Disney’s ”Lady and the Tramp”.

Get ready to enjoy a small Sunday selection of appetizers and a whole range of authentic pizzas straight from our Valeriano stone ovens while we make you gear down and prepare for the week to come.

The pizza dough is made from finely grained Caputo flour and the pizzas are baked for a mere 90 seconds at 375 degrees Celsius, which creates the soft middle, the chewy bite and the airy, crunchy crust we love so dearly. There are always 7 different pizzas to choose between on the Lazy Sunday menu.

Still up for dessert? Then there’s only one option. But what an option! Gran Torino’s classic tiramisu made with espresso, amaretto, vanilla liquor and marsala. Mama mia! Don’t forget to book your Lazy Sunday table in advance .

We’re closed on January 17th because it’s time to party!

Dear guest, on Sunday the 17th of January all of Madklubben’s restaurants will be closed for evening service. The reason? We will be busy celebrating our amazing employees who deserve a night full of dancing, drinking, eating and laughing.

Following a successful 2015 that concluded with a busy holiday season and a festive New Year’s Eve we’ll let our hair down for the night and celebrate with more than 300 skilled chefs, waiters and bartenders who help run 9 of Copenhagen’s most popular restaurants and bars.

Our popular American soul food eatery Alabama Social in Nørrebro will still be open for brunch service just as the elegant Bistro Royal on Kongens Nytorv will remain open for lunch.

We look forward to welcoming you back for more great food served at fair prices from Monday January 18th.

Gran Torino named one of Denmark’s top pizza places

Hurray! Danish fashion magazine Costume has just published their new guide to seven sublime pizza places in Denmark . We’re thrilled to announce that our very own restaurant Gran Torino has made it on the list.

In the article Costume’s journalist notes that even though the italian classic is a crowd favorite among Danes, not everybody succeeds in creating the perfect taste of Italy. That’s why they’ve set out to find the best pizza spots not only in Copenhagen but in all of Denmark.

Have a look at the guide here and come out to Nørrebro where we’ll be happy to serve up some of the country’s very best pizza pie.
