Best italian food in Finland. Taste is great and restaurant is warm and cozy. Staff is Italian and you can see and feel it. Try the pasta mamma maria and for dessert homemade icecream. Been here several times on our way to summer cottage.

Went here for a pizzas (Italian ham). Taste was pretty ok for Finland, but nothing special. Bruschetta was good. Service was ok. This place is really popular with the local Finns. Getting a table might take some time especially for more than 2 visitors. This is quite small place. Overall my feeling is that their food is ok, but not... More

This is a must for any visitor to Lahti. This place never empties and when you eat there you will understand why! The food is excellent, large portions complimentary garlic bread with salad to start. The staff are friendly and attentive. The menu is very reasonably priced and the kitchen can be seen whilst you eat (always a good sign).... More

I have visited Mamma Maria multiple times a year since it was established in 1995 and the restaurant is fantastic. Yeah it's sometimes full and yeah the waiters are sometimes a bit unorganized but it's so worth it. Go, try it, fall in love!

This place is the place to go in Lahti. My family has been going there for years and we've never left disappointed. They make fresh pasta and the menu has a ton of different sauces to choose from. They also have some meat dishes and proper Italian pizza to choose from. Pastas are made with your choice of pasta and... More

I searched through Tripadvisor to decide upon a dinner when we had to spend a night in Lahti in short notice. Found this Italian ristorante, convinced my husband to try it out and we were not let down. Service was friendly and attentive althought the place looked to be full and we did not have a reservation. Food was great,... More

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
