We had a really nice diner experience with family, good food, good wines and really nice service! The restaurant has a industrial look and not many seats, really excellent!

Do not approach this as a dinner. Approach it as opera played with food. The experience is exquisite. The remaining text I just fill in because TripAdvisor forces me to use 100 characters.

This is a must visit restaurant in Helsinki! Italian with a Scandinavian twist. Place is tiny and therefore tough to get a reservation. Excellent & laid back service. We had a 4 course menu with a great wine set 🤤.

We had a fabulous dinner at Toca. The food was carefully prepared with attention to every detail. We were also very impressed with how well the wine pairings complimented each dish. The service was warm, attentive and knowledgeable. Fabulous experience and highly recommended!

Impeccable meal from start to finish! We chose their bartender’s choice to pair with our meal. It was a fun surprise to see which cocktail or bottle of wine would be paired with each course. The staff was very welcoming and friendly.

We had a birthday dinner in this restaurant. We enjoined everything there - atmosphere was very nice with quite music on the background. Food was great and wine pairing was selected very professionally. One thing to be mentioned separately - they have not only wine...pairing but also beer pairing and even cocktail pairing. Both - wine and cocktail pairings - were great.More

We went to enjoy our evening with good enough food and wine to want to return another time. The waiting service was great, location is excellent, kitchen is unfortunate, the wine selection horrible. Tasteless dishes, mostly consisting of diverse flavours of mousse in four courses....Another copy/paste system of attempting fancy food but ending up disrespecting those who have to eat these uninspired, pretentious mousse combinations. It would be lovely if the Italian kitchen staff would bring in some of their own culture into the foods, as there clearly must be talent behind the scenes, and leave visual trickeries to those recently graduated from hospitality schools and rely on good taste, well planned menus and at least medium standard wines.More

Very cozy place with a nice ambience and great staff. We had very high expectations based on previous reviews. The staff explained the concept, the menu and they were very attentive. The beer and wine was great, as were the drinks. The menu was made...from rather basic ingredients and left us with a somewhat divided experience - some of it was very nice but some of the Finnish influences were perceived as less successful. Taste is subjective but we would have preferred a stronger italian influence.More
