“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Took a stroll with colleagues on Vappu day 2013 and it was crowded everywhere. Boss made a reservation to dine here. We reached here at about 5pm and it was already crowded. Diners without reservation were literally rejected. I ordered beer which I enjoyed because it was light for the stomach. Next was starters, Creamy fennelsoup and tigerprawn tartar which tasted very creamy and light. Main course was awesome - Insalata Fileto Di Manzo Con Mozzarella Buffala - Herbsalads, honey file beef, buffalamozarella and grilled vegetables. I have been to several michelin star restaurant in Singapore , but today I have tasted the best, seriously.

“Friday evening light dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

Once again nice light Friday evening dinner at Bar & Enoteca. LINQUINI AL CAMBERO E ZUCCHINI and LINQUINI AL PESTO E CAPRINO was excellent with nice wine ERA Grillo (organic). Service was once again good and not complicated.

“Excellent location, avergae food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

With a friend at Ravintola Vespa eating at second floor. Nice table with good view over Helsinki main streets. Had "pressed lamb meet" which was a new experience for me. Tasted good and OK value for Money (swallowed with some glasses of good Italian red wine). The waitress was not very experienced and open a white wine bottle when we ordered red wine and made several other mistakes. All together a nice evening in spite of the waitress.
