Nice cozy restaurant with good food

We had the 3-course surprise menu and the 4-course menu of the day. All the food was very good. The waitress explained very well to us what's on our plate and how they cooked it. Very good service and food overall.

Lunch called Teriyaki Chicken was actually tasteless chicken slices with a little spoonfull of teriayki sauce and dry rice with sweet corn. Sweet potato soup was smooth but lacked taste as well. One of our group asked the waiter if there was something in the teriayki chicken that she could not eat. She couldn't eat soy so the waiter said... More

This is a small and cozy restaurant, with very good food, and very nice staff. We went there for lunch, and the available menu was surprisingly good.

Very nice, almost hidden gem in Töölö. Very nice staff, and the food was truly excellent, as was the wine pairing also. Nice, cozy atmosphere. Reasonably priced!

Aito is a small place and thus very cozy. The food was absolutely excellent Finland style - modern homecoming.

The food was good but not exceptional, maybe a bit too boring. Also, the interior was not very inspiring. Overall, the experience was good but that is it. We will not rush back.

They do not have a long menu, but everything is fresh and made creative way without any unnecessary tricks. We were 2 couples and had different choices, everybody were satidfied of food taste, quality and also wines recomended with different meals. I really recomend to book a table. Restaurant is not so big, which also gave good athmosfare.

the food is really good, made with fresh local produce. But the waitress' apparent reluctance in explaining the system and the different menus plus the insistence 'for people with special dietary requirements only' for those not wanting to eat meat spoiled much of the evening. She did agree - finally - to let us have fish instead of meat, but... More

This is the third time I visited this small and cosy restaurant, and the second time with foreign quests. The food was great and the guest enjoyed it very much - as also in the previous visit. I can recommend this for anyone looking for an nice dinner with fronds or guests.
