Description: Bravuria is like a modern Italian marketplace, where people, good food, good drinks and life come together. We serve pasta, pizza, antipasti and salads. Our house made pasta is made the traditional way from eggs and Italian flour in our kitchen. We are very proud of it!

Great concept for quick and stylish dining. The restaurant is fun, friendly staff and the payment system (debit card that registers what you order and you pay at the end) is fun and functional. WIne prices very reasonable, especially for Helsinki, as were the meal prices.

Where the restaurant fell short was with the pasta station. At first, I thought that the pasta I had selected was too heavy for the sauce but others, in our group, who had different variations of pasta and sauce also said the pasta was too doughy and slightly undercooked, even for al dente, and more sauce was needed. In fairness, those who ordered pizza and from the grill were happy with their meals, so maybe the key is to avoid the pasta entirely!

Would be willing to give it another try but would also like to try a similar concept restaurant near the train station and Atheneum.

Somewhere between fast food and great food. Self serve but my grilled chicken Caesar was one of the best any where.

Ive eaten here a couple of times now and its always been tasty, never had to wait too long for your food. Prices are appropriate and service has always been good. If you are in helsinki and looking for a nice plate of pasta, i can recommend this place!

This is the S-group's attempt at a restaurant that people will actually want to eat in and I think that they've hit nail on the head.

The restaurant is a cross between a fast food place and serviced restaurant in that you are provided with a plastic card onto which your order is placed and you collect the food yourself from the cook. The menu is pretty much divided into pasta and pizza. The pasta is freshly made and the different dishes I've had on the few occasions I've been there have been really tasty. I've never had a pizza there.

The price to quality ratio is quite good making it a perfect place for a quick bite when in the city. There are plenty of bad quality restaurants in the surrounding area which are more expensive, making Bravuria an easy choice!
