Good Dinner in Saturday Evening

This restaurant is in a good location in the center of Lahti. On week-ends you need to make a table reservation in advance because it is so popular place. Good food, friendly service and reasonable price.

Never in my life have i eaten so good italian food, that i ate in this restaurant. Not even in Italy. Prices are relatively cheap, service is good and the best of all, the food is good with a vast amount of options. If you visit Lahti, this is the place to have dinner...

Nice sporty Italian restaurant which is specialized to variety of pasta dishes and pizzas. It also offers different kind of meat dishes. Pizzas are very good, the pasta dishes are good but quite heavy, and made with a lot of oil or cream. Good prices. Stuff is very friendly ! On weekends, better to make table reservation.

Service was not very fast and you have to be patient to get attention from waiter. BUT - risotto with gorgonzola, shrimps and spinach was brilliant!!!! Huge portion, very tasty and price 11 eur is also very good. For other we took pizzas and they also were great. Worth visit for sure!

Located by the side of market square it has very easy access. Though the decoration is getting a bit old fashioned, there is powerful gravity. Versatile menu, generous and tasty portions guarantee the success. If the welcoming and service were a bit more amiable, I would have given a full hand.

We were celebrating my wife's birthday in this nicely decorated cozy restaurant. Service was excellent and food was delicious. Portions were large. Self made ice cream is unbeatable.

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.
