I had late lunch with my daughter. As we arrived nobody really paid any attention, people just walked by. Finally we got the table outside with the warning - if it starts raining you may not be able to change inside? What?? Not very good way to get customers...

For years we have visited this restaurant once a summer as part of our holiday programme, since it has served excellent food. What an earth has happened? This time the pizzas were tasteless and poor, something you would expect to get deep frozen from a supermarket not from an Italian restaurant. The place seems to have lost its touch.

I have visited many pasta restaurants in Finland, but this is by far the best one. The portions are huge and there is a broad selection of different pastas and pizzas on the menu. The ice-cream is also delicious - it's a must! The staff is super friendly, but the only downside is that the service can be a bit... More

I did want to have seafood pasta, so I asked stuff. but she didn't find, therefore I took seafood salad as lunch, it was nice. but I guess other menus also looks great. I'd like to go again to have pasta.

The meals were huge for the price, service was quick, the food was ok, not the best I've had but not bad for a casual dinner

The meals are rather big, and prices, at the same time, are not that high as in other restaurants in Finland! Nice place to visit with a family or friends. Located on the market square of Lahti, so straight in the center. Good to notice that menus are offered in Russian, English and Finnish languages.

Nearly best Italian restaurant I've ever visited! Really good food and what a great staff! Always friendly and polite with few nice words. Pizzat are very good, but most recomment is pasta with Mamma Maria sauce! And ofcource handmade Italian icecream.

I do not know, what has happen but lately this restaurant dropped it's quality. It used to be the place for an Italian food in Lahti. Maybe it still is, however not that good as before. I have eaten there few times, mainly pasta. Last time pasta dish was just ok, ate there at lunch time about 2 month ago.... More

It is rarely that I do not finish a pizza, but last Saturday was one of those times. Ordered a Margarita pizza with garlic. No garlic of course and the pizza just was awful. It tasted like ketshup... even a ready made frozen pizza tastes better.
