I have visited this place several times and it has never let me down. I wouldn't consider it as my first choice for a dinner or to have a drink but due to its easy and central location it is a easy option. The most recent time I visited the restaurant with a friend. We chose fantasia pizzas with 3... More

I went to Leonardo two days in a row. Yesterday I eat a pasta and today I went there to eat a pizza. The pasta was very good and the pizza Leonardo is fantastic. Eu fui ao Leonardo dois dias seguidos. Ontem jantei uma massa e hoje uma pizza. A massa estava óptima e a pizza Leonardo é muito boa

The restaurant looked promising with its white table cloths and a further check one on top as in many good Italian restaurants. The menu, too, seemed comprehensive and very promising There was a reasonable number of patrons already there but, still, it is in City Center and right across from Helsinki's Central Railway Station. While waiting for the order, I... More

I was walking past the restaurant last night and it was incredibly crowded. So today i decided to pop by for lunch. It took a long time before the first waitress took my order but she was pretty polite which was nice for an asian alone. Their beer was good although slightly pricey for Europe standards (its finland afterall) but... More

I recommend you dont go to this restaurant. We know a lot of a restaurant like this . very touristy. Saturday evening was very crowded. Even when the waiter forgot the wine service. The flavors of the food I ate was average not a special. prices moderate. I was not really satisfied with.

We liked this restaurant so much we went for dinner one evening, and lunch another day. The same friendly staff were on, perhaps they are the owners. On our second visit the all recognised us, and again were friendly. Simple but try the Pomodoro Suppe, really tasty, with homemade breads. Good drinks, wines, beers, cocktails.

Official name (according to their receipts!) is Leonardo Bar & Ristorante. Immediately opposite the central station, it is easy to get to by other transport as well, with many trams and buses serving the immediate area. The pizza I had (a Francescana) was well prepared, well cooked and more than big enough for one. At 13.90 euros it was cheaper... More
