“Hidden gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

Il Duetto is not easy to find, hidden below Kamppi in the Helsingin Energia building, but is definitely worth the trip. The food is authentic Italian, not the usual Finnish version of Italian which you find in many places in Finland. The food is tasty and the staff are very friendly. They like children and are willing to change dishes to suit different tastes/diets. We have several Italian friends who come here regularly - they refuse to go anywhere else and enjoy getting real Italian food & service!

“There are better places”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2012

Located under big shop, no windows, not really clean. Good if you hungry and in a hurry, but I would recommend to find another place if you want to enjoy yor lunch. However servants are friendly and pizza is good enough.

“Good italian pizzas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2012

The best place to eat Italian food is to go to restaurants that have Italian cookers, like this one. The pizza was quite good, the service was ok (it is true that they should improve their Finnish and Swedish) but I didn´t like the place that much. It is located in the city centre but the restaurant it is quite hidden, it is not cozy at all and I´ve never like the fact that I have to ask for a coin every time I need to go to the toilet. The price is quite fair for being in Helsinki.
