Handily placed in the City Centre to get the backwash of the impatient punters not prepared to wait for a table at the popular Mexican restaurant next door. Like us. So rather anxiously, we called in at 8.30 p.m. on a Saturday evening only to find about 10 punters in the room. Certainly restrained in design for an Italian restaurant,... More

In serious need of a serious update, everything is worn out. Except for the food and service, which are quite good.

The food was not good, and the prices are too expensive for the food quality you receive. The atmosphere is nice but I wouldn't go there again.

I cannot believe some of the reviews as I had one of the best dishes ever in this restaurant - Liver with bacon, mash and lingonberries. Incredible fusion of taste. My finacee always had the pasta and she REALLY does know here pasta. It is not as expensive as some of the restaurants in Helsinki and wine can be purchased... More

Slow service. Virtually ignored while bigger parties were served. White wine was warm and food promised so much more. Atmosphere outside was good but this comes from live music in neighbouring alleyway.

First, the service is quite slow, so if you're in a hurry, this is not the place for you. Pizzas are quite nice, but everything else I have taste there is not more that average :(

Arriving in Helsinki late on a Wednesday night we were lucky enough to stumble on this little gem of a restaurant. Although the weather could have been better, the food, drink and service certainly made up for it! Not only did our waitress help my parents and I with our menu selections, she went out of her way to suggest... More

I have eaten here every now and then over the years. Small restaurant, nice for casual dinners. It serves basic Italian food with Finnish twist. I especially like their seafood salad Grill di Mare and Gratinated Smoked Mussels which have been on the menu at least 10 years. In summer their terrace is lively and good place to meet friends.

Remarkably good Italian food and nice wine. Nice place and cozy atmosphere, in Helsinki city centre. Very tasty and quite reasonably priced for either Finnish or EU standards. Recommended!

This is a nice easy to go place in the center of Helsinki. We've visited dozens of times - easy and quick place to go with reasonable price range and couple of nice dishes. In general not particularly excellent in any area, although sometimes very nice service (has varied a bit, usually friendly). Food is ok, at least the dishes... More
