Great atmosphere

Atmosphere was nice and quiet. Service was excellent. Unfortunately food was just average. The tuna carpaccio was the best. Others like the prawn fetuccine, ravioli, salmon and tiramisu were really average. We had dinner here because it was just below our hotel.

They have a buffet style Sunday breakfast with good food all around. Was a nice casual break from most. Everything was fresh and tasty!

We were 4 colleagues going out for dinner in Helsinki and decided to choose this Italian restaurant and it was a good choice. The place is roustic and informal, but quallity details like marble tables and classic chairs gave it a good atmosphere. The silver shiny tiles covering the ceiling with uncovered light bulbs with different intensities was the part... More

Food is good, very delicate, but the waiter seems not well trained. Since the price is high, the quality of service should be level up.

The food was very good, but the staff was rude. When my wife asked what kind of green teas they serve she was told "well, how do I know, it is green". We didn't drink wine, but assume the answer would have been the same "well, we have red and white wine, but we have no idea of what grapes".

The Mrs an I went to Toscanini for lunch, we had a very nice experience. Service was attentive and the facilities cozy. She had the cod and I took the pheasant, both portions were cooked properly, good flavours and presentation, fair size. Will definitely visit again.
