Yesterday I had a great diner in Toscanini. Small choices but this means less choice, better quality and this is exactly what we got. Perfect red house wine (Borgo Casa Al Vento Aira Chianti Classico)! Recommended for everyone to give Toscanini a try.

The food was ok but we were not asked if we were interested to get some wine. We could not even get a dessert because the kitchen was closed. We were not informed about this! Avoid this restaurant and spend your money elsewhere....

Our group found Toscanini because we left the "very expensive", "very over the top" Japanese restaurant next door. We found everything we wanted from Toscanini - good food, great prices, a good atmosphere and great choice. Our food arrived hot, and it arrived quickly. Our waiter was knowledgeable and I was happy to see a "salad of the day" on... More

Felt good the moment we walked in on a popular but not full Friday evening. Service exemplary and a good wine choice. Menu had enough to offer. Complimentary bread and dips a nice touch and appreciated, starters set a high standard (scallops in asparagus+pea soup and vitello tonnato - thin slices of veal with tuna fish dressing and anchovies- both...

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

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.

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.
