“Italian taste in Helsinki - food and ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Me and my husband went there for dinner, once there the staff was very friendly (very uncommon for Helsinki) and we promptly got a table, menus and a suggestion for a small glass of sparkling to open the appetite.
There's many options to choose from, and everything looks delicious, we shared a Carpaccio for starters and for main dish we got the Grilled Shrimp and the Tortelloni Ricotta e Spinaci , both of them full of flavors, well presented, and for dessert Tiramissu and Babá, also very good choices.

Very nice quiet place, friendly staff and good food, for a reasonable price with a nice bottle of wine.

“Quite ok but nothing special.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We ate two meals. Vitello tonnato was tastles. Pasta with muscles was ok.
All ingredients are fresh but food is tastless. Not bad, not good. Do I go there again? I don´t think so.

“Real Italian restaurant in Helsinki”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

I did eat lunch with my friend in this new restaurant in southern part of Helsinki. The staff was very nice and very italian. The food was also italian and very good with clean tastes. We did eat fish and it had a very tasteful batat sauce and was served with vedgetables and good italian balsamico. The house wine was from Veneto area, dry and good and not very expensive. Seems to be the best italian restaurant in Helsinki.
