You can't go wrong at Toscanini

I've been coming here for years - every time I visit Helsinki - and it consistently delivers high quality Italian food with largely local ingredients. The staff are friendly and knowledgable, the wines are solid and there are always specials. It is a trattoria so it is fairly casual. Sit outside... read more

We discovered this restaurant on our walks, and were pleasantly surprised. It had fresh and delicious food. I had the pasta with mushrooms and it was so delicious. We went back a second time. It's a small place, but was always full. Good idea to make reservations. House Wine was good too. Service was great and waiter was very friendly.... More

Toscanini is located inside the beautiful Klaus K hotel. The food here is bad to the bone. Everything we've ordered here is made from scratch and all the ingredients are fresh. The tasting menu here is a must to sample all the great items offered by the Chef.

We had antipasti plate for 2 for starters it was excellent. Main course was super tender Entrecôte. Staff were really nice. When ask them to delay our main course because antipasti was so big they just told us of course sure just let us know when you are ready to have it. And there where lots of another small things...

The restaurant is part of the Klaus K hotel. Extensive menu, very good cook and excellent service. Prices are on the high scale side but so is the food.

My wife and I stopped in for a quiet lunch after a busy day exploring Helsinki - and loved the restaurant. Warm, inviting decor, fresh bread, a solid wine list, fabulous service and excellent Italian food. The perfect spot for a relaxing, romantic lunch!

We went for dinner and based on earlier reviews we expected authentic Italian food. However, as it often happens in Finland, the food was made with too much cream and quite heavy. The good side was the very attentive and quick service. The price is rather high for the quality of food.

We ended up going to this restaurant on four consecutive nights due to a combination of adverse weather and meeting colleagues so we sampled a good cross-section of what was available on the small but interesting menu. My wife ordered an entrecôte steak on three occasions, the waiter said that it would be served medium which was okay but she... More

The risotto with parmesan and orange was stunning. Service was good. Quite pricey compared to Estonia where we had just arrived from.

I know the city is of high living standard and things are expensive, but 20 euro for a tiger prawn fettuccine is way too expensive-5 small pieces of prawns and a really salty sauce... Not worth it. But to be fair, the fettuccine texture was really good. There's a salad bar comes with the meal, there's only a green salad... More
