A really good surprise! Never disappoints. Have been there lots of times. Tried pizza, pasta, everything was amazing. Also the desserts are very good. The best is the relation quality-price! Love it!

I have been many times to this restaurant and never unlike the pasta out of there ! Service is rather quick and friendly and the pasta taste rather good. I always enjoy the little free starter we get before our meal. I however only tasted pasta and desserts. The choices seem many, but it is not because "nothing is fresh",... More

Some salad and bread as a start were ok. Really tasty good size pizza. Service good but not excellent. Restaurant is a bit worn but cosy, really nice smells from kitchen and good looking portions. Lasagne is not "home made" but other things I like.

Pitsat ja pastat on tässä ravintolassa aina hyviä. Alku salaatti ja valkosipulileipä on mahtavaa! Asiakaspalvelussa olisi vähän parantamisen varaa... Pizza and pasta is always good in this restaurant. Salad and garlic bread is amazing! Customer service could be bit better...

The experience of having dinner in a "typical" italian restaurant so far in the freezing north was fine. On the other hand the food was average, pasta was ok, pizza was ok, but stay away from the steaks. The decorations looked really old

Filled to the brink, this restaurant seems to be in the favour of Lahti people for lunches. Getting the food to the table did not take too long, and started salads with fresh bread belong to all dishes. I especially enjoyed the salad dressing they make in the house. Food was ok, and meat was cooked well. The only thing... More

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.
