One of my favorites!

Aito is one of my favorites in Helsinki. Easy, seasonal, scandinavian food made to perfection. Try the evening menu; real value for money! Also nice with a group as the atmosphere is not stiff.

is the word on my mind to describe this little gem. Six course menu, and they added a couple of more tasters above that, and their wine package - everything was superb and we enjoyed every piece and zip of what they presented to us. Three very enjoyable and good tasting hours. They have no Michelin star but they should... More

This restaurant was a positive surprise. Little bit away from Helsinki city center but worth the trip (less than 2km). Service was friendly and attentive. We loved the wines and how well they paired with the food. Some combinations seemed odd but once we tasted the wine with the food - perfection. Food was well made and consistently good from... More

What a brilliant gem this place is. Small and cozy in the middle of Töölö district where you will never know the place excists unless someone tells you about it. Probably the best brunch on town and also in the evenings the value for money is exceptionally good. Friendly and professional service is worth a praise also since usually nowadays... More

I have visited the "top 20" of Helsinki almost completely and Aito is definetely my favorite so far. Been there three times now and food has never disappointed. I like their "supply chain" from the northern FInland (if you go please ask the story) and the service has always been great as well. It is not the finest dining in... More

With Finnish friends we went for a taste of of Finnish food and were not disappointed. Excellent advice from the hostess meant we had a truly memorable meal paired to some excellent wines. Not cheap but worth every penny for a great taste of Finnish cuisine at its best.

Aito is one my favourite restaurants in Helsinki, I've been there close to twenty times. Whether it's a quick lunch on a Tuesday or an all-out tasting menu with your friends on a Friday, Aito delivers. The dishes are always creative without being too fancy. The wine pairings have been thought through intensly. What really lifts Aito above the rest... More

Excellent service! The staff clearly enjoying what they do. The waiter was enthusiastic about every dish he brought. The food was prepared perfectly, and every bite had such brilliant flavour. Usually this sort of high end places leave me hungry. But the main dish, the goose, left me perfectly satisfied and full without feeling bloated. Add to that a variety... More

I wanted to visit a Finnish restaurant and this one ticked all the boxes. The most deleicious reindeer fillet and a wonderful sea buckthorn panna cotta. Wine list excellent, but expensive as are all wibes in Finland.
