Nice terrace, but...

It might be a really nice restaurant, but the terrace service doesn't work. They have only one waiter outside, which is too little for a crowded terrace. The beer we ordered had an expiry date of 5 months ago; the antipasto di mare would make any italian blush of shame... plus, it is expensive... read more

Very good food. Coming from america the style was much different than I was used to. My family had 4/5 of the primis which we all liked. Good but not amazing.

Our experience here was very disappointing. It took a very long time for our meal to arrive and by then we were uncomfortably hungry. The waiter was a friendly fellow from Chicago, but it didn't make up for the wait for our food.

Our starters antipasto misto with mozorella and grilled pepers etc. were excellent and nicely presented, we shared one portion, which was really enough. Main course with the local Finnish Siikaa (Whitefish) was unfortunately a little to salty to our taste, The white wine Riff Bianca Lageder was very enjoyable. Desserts Semi Freddo and Panna Cotta completed the meal together with... More

This place is in great location right next to the market square in Helsinki. You will reach here easily with by public transport. Place is roomy, light and well decorated. We had two pasta dishes and one risotto with trout. My pasta with dried ham and fresh peas was quite good combination but there was too much of the ham... More

I visited Sasso with one of my dear friends and we had high expectations about the restaurant. Sadly our dinner didn't live up to them. The food was okay, but nothing too special. It was missing a lot of seasoning, which didn't make me excited at all. The pasta was quite nice, but nothing too remarkable. This is something my... More

My wife and I dined here during the week of July 12, 2015. The server took over 25 minutes before even coming to our table to greet us, then another 15 minutes before they brought bread over. Service was extremely slow. The Helsinki couple to our side started talking to us and also noted the very slow service. We will... More

We just arrived in Helsinki and since my husband was in pain, he wanted to pick a restaurant quickly. The fancy restaurant near the fountain in the middle of the shopping area suggested this restaurant. There weren't many people in there and unfortunately the prices were high and food too heavy for my liking. I split the White Fish, Siikaa,... More
