Good Italian food in the center of Joensuu. I was enjoying this restaurant two times during my one-week stay in Joensuu. Pizza was tasty and cheap, rissotto was ok. Good presentation of the food, tasty, good prices, and you get a free salad buffet (included in the price). Again, a reasonable option for dinner in Joensuu

You can rely on Rosso to deliver a decent standard pizza anywhere in the country. The only way you know where you are once you are inside the restaurant, is to try and recognize the dialect of the waiters.

Oldest pizza chain in Finland, claims to be freshened up but the food is really the same as in the 80s. Long waiting times in the evening, even though not too customers around. Owned (and thus recommended) by local hotel chain, avoid.There are many indepently-run and better alternatives nearby.

I visited this restaurant with my aunt and we were both disappointed not only with the food, but also with the stuff working there. That day's special was steak, so we both ordered the same. But they both tasted like rubber. The salad buffet was near empty and even when we told the waitress about it, she didn't do anything.... More

I've been there a couple of times and the food is not good at all. Both times the chicken in my salad was so dry so it didn't even taste at all. I'm sure the incredients are from a freezer. There are plenty of better restaurants in Joensuu and I will not give this restaurant a third chanse to impress... More

Went with colleagues after a conference to this restaurant. Free salad was a nice surprise. Beer rather pricey. Had chicken and goat cheese pizza, which was large but was a bit boring - the Devils jam lacked a kick and there were too few pine nuts to offset the cheese. My colleagues seemed to have similar thoughts on their pizzas.... More
