“More than meets the eye...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

Having just arrived in Turku on a Sunday evening, we were finding it very difficult to find somewhere to eat that looked appealing, as about 90% of the restaurants were closed, and the few that were open were full or fully booked. We were just about to give in and go to Hesburger, when we spotted this place. Di Trevi didn't look promising at first glance for a family meal (although if I'd been looking for somewhere for a few drinks it would have been very appealing), as it seemed to just be a wine bar with tapas. When we asked the girls behind the bar, however, they not only sorted out a table for us (not easy, as it was pretty crowded), but also gave us an English menu that turned out to have plenty of choices. Between us, we had a selection of pizzas, salads, pasta dishes and a burger, and all were very good. The pizzas deserve a special mention, as although the toppings were a bit unusual they did work, and the bases were outstanding. The service was great (the reviewer complaining about it must have got different people). They have a big range of good wine and a decent selection of beers. This place was a life saver for five hungry travellers - we couldn't understand why so few other places (and none of the upmarket restaurants, or those in the big hotels) were open on Sunday evening, as there were clearly a lot of people in town who needed feeding. Very odd in a city this size.

“Nice location, mediocre food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

The set up is quite nice but the food could be better. Nothing horribly wrong but still lacks something to get more stars.

“Great pizzas, lovely atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Me and my boyfriend visited here during busy weekend DBTL. There is self service catering at the terrace where we were eating. Pizzas were tasty and crispy.

“Sloppy service and slightly confusing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

Fresh decor and good feel but the service was sloppy work to say the least. The waiter forgot half of our food (seriously folks, write stuff down if you don't remember it all), apologized yes and informed us that the mistake was on the house. However upon recieving the bill they still had charged us a few euros for it. I mean, seriously is not the few euros, it's the principle of the thing. This behaviour only left us confused an made the experience a lot less great.
The food was ok, but what's up with tapas being served at an Italian joint? Don't get me wrong folks it's good but yet again confusing. By all means go but don't expect too much.

“Great place for lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

I have been here for lunch like a thousand times. It's defenitely my go-to place if I want to have lunch solo or with friends. I also recommend it to other people as well because the price ain't bad at all and the quality is excellent. I also prefer that lunch includes salad, bread, water, main course, coffee/tea and dessert and there aren't so many restaurants in Turku which have all of these mentioned above included. If you like steaks, you might want to know that on Fridays they always serve one steak dish (at least for the past 6 months they have done that).

Lunch is ordered when you come in to the restaurant and it will be serveded for you (so no buffet here). There are usually 3 choices for you to choose from (the price usually varies from 9 to 14 Euros). When you eat here, you might want to know that they do not check up on you so the main course can be served at any time after you have ordered (even if you still have your salad in front of you). I have already confronted the restaurant staff about this once as it strucks a bit odd to me but the answer I got wasn't really helping me at all. So the service defenitely is something they need to improve.

Another thing you might want to know is that the lunch they offer is really popular so there are a lot of people around. Service, however, is still fast due to the fact mentioned above so you don't really need to take any extra time if you want to eat here during lunch time.
