Nice lunch outdoors

Fast service, nice staff and tasty portions. We ate outdoors because of the nice weather. Very positive experience!

Casa Erkki 2.0, try it and be amazed!! Gorgonzola and chili with edge cutting balsamico makes that pizza something special.

Relaxed place to have lunch (have never been there for dinner), inexpensive place nicely situated by the river. Food was quite nice though nothing spectacular (but decent for 9 euros). Especially the male staff here is very friendly and welcoming, this makes one feel like coming again.

Great place to sit outside in the summer. Great place to take the kids and the service and staff are attentive. The food is quite average but good when you need to satisfy a range of tastes. Very central and reasonably priced

Panini is a cosy bistro style restaurant in the center of Turku, just a couple of blocks away from the central market square. Its food product is italian inspired, fresh, tasty and elegant, without any unnecessary fuss nor compromises with good quality. In Panini you get what you want with a good price. But the best part of Panini is... More

but then again, we didn't know what expect. Nothing wrong with the service - it was friendly and pretty much available when needed. Four stars for the service. But we came to eat and will not come again. Oddest Bruschetta I've ever tasted... Biffipaninos were dissapointing - good crust in a totally plain and tasteless bun. The beef was chewy... More

A delightful Italian that packs gutsy flavours into its well conceived dishes. Meals are reasonably priced and filling. The use of blue cheese on the pizzas is an interesting but effective idea. The chorizo and salami pasta was a dish that stood out in particular. Service was prompt, welcoming and friendly.

We ate here with some colleagues, I had a pasta followed by a sorbet, all the food was pleasantly better than expected considering how reasonably priced it was. Well worth a visit in my opinion.

I am a regular in this restaurant and use it like once a month. This place is great to take your friends and family. Restaurant even allows you to take your dog with you and there are separate tables inside and tables outside for dog owners. Prices are not too expensive and the food is good if you are not... More
