I've been there a couple of times and the food is not good at all. Both times the chicken in my salad was so dry so it didn't even taste at all. I'm sure the incredients are from a freezer. There are plenty of better restaurants in Joensuu and I will not give this restaurant a third chanse to impress... More

Went with colleagues after a conference to this restaurant. Free salad was a nice surprise. Beer rather pricey. Had chicken and goat cheese pizza, which was large but was a bit boring - the Devils jam lacked a kick and there were too few pine nuts to offset the cheese. My colleagues seemed to have similar thoughts on their pizzas.... More

Typical Rosso-consept. Not bad as a matter of fact, but nothing special. A good place to have a dinner with your family, but if you are looking more romantic place, please toward your steps to somewhere else.

It was more like gringo pizza than Italian. Since its a chain restaurant, i can understand, but its not Italian. Service is good, prolices are ok. We ordered kids mashed potatoes with meatballs for 8 euros. Pizza was 13 euros, and beers very expensive. You can not charge 7.50 for a pint of local beer.

Rosso is a local favorite among some of my colleagues, but I have found their food bland and rather predictable. The salad bar is minimal. If you have the opportunity to go somewhere more adventurous, I would advise you to do so.

The food was nice and it has some dishes for vegetarians/vegans or special diets, which is really nice. They have salads included in your meal. I was missing real mediterranean food like the olives, olive oil, tomato and pesto! I ordered a pizza and don´t regret - it was very nice, although I would be lying if I said it... More

Pricing seems pretty normal for Finland and the servings are pretty generous. I got a pizza on rye crust which was pretty awesome and my wife got a chicken pasta dish which tasted pretty good. We asked to split a desert and the chef split it for us on different plates which was great. I got a coffee from them... More

I've been eating in Rosso restaurants around Finland since my childhood, and it's always kind of same. Pizzas are fine, but nowadays a bit overpriced. Of course the place has a better atmosphere that basic cheap pizza places, so it works well for dinner happenings too. Service was fine and the wine was good. Salad table included to the price...
