If you like Italian food, this is the place. You cannot get more original experience from Lahti than this. Pasta, pizza and other dishes are excellent and so is the service. Kids love also the place (ice creams and lollipops).

I went there with my boyfriend, they told us there is no free table (apparently they had half of the table booked but this is ok). About 10 mins some Finns joined us in waiting but... the table for them was found almost immediately and stuff pretended to not see us at all. Apparently they prefer to have Finnish people... More

Good Italian in easy going atmosphere. No "fine dining" but good food in relaxed style. Sometimes maybe too relaxed waiters when the place is full (happens to be quite often, so make reservation). Good place to go with the kids.

My favorite restaurant in whole Finland. The best thing about the place is the friendly, chatty staff and the international atmosphere they create. Food is good, not the best, but it's pretty cheap so every meal is worth the money. Mamma Maria's gelateria is also worth trying. Highly recommended!

This restaurant rarely fails to disappoint. So little enthusiasm in the dishes, no matter what you eat. Only thing Italian about this restaurant is the decor. The food is not bad, but if you expect proper italian food with attention to the quality of the ingredients, you won't find it here.

This was a second visit in restaurant just after Christmas. Restaurant was full and we had to wait ten minutes to get table without reservation. Service was quick, helpful and friendly both finnish and italian languages. We both ate pasta. I took duck pasta which wasn't very good for my taste. Seafood pasta of my wife was good. Bigoli hand...

Friendly and relaxed place to enjoy a lunch or dinner. This restaurant is run by Italian staff. The menu offers wide selection of dishes,,, nothing too fancy -its more less a "family run - corner restaurant" which is always packed with people and warm atmosphere. Huge pasta plates, so you wont leave hungry -in fact it is more adviced to... More
