Very good Italian small bistro type of restaurant, seats only maybe 20 pers. Risottos and pastas won't let you down!

“Fantastic value”
Reviewed August 29, 2010

One of the better Italian restaurants in Helsinki. The food is mostly very tasty and very Italian. Same goes for the wines. The pricing is very affordable for both.

On the downside: the place is very small and very busy. Getting a table might be a challenge on weekends in particular. The level of service may vary, and not all tables are very comfortable.

“small and noisy”
Reviewed March 13, 2009

the food was ok although nothing memorable. tables were close together, the chairs touching the chair behind. it was really noisy and you had to shout to your dining companions. i would not choose it again.
