A sober and charming atmosphere right away when you come here. Pleasant and attentive service. The smoked tuna carpaccio was very good for starters. Had the saltimbocca romano for main course that was not optimally tender but good anyway. There was some confusion with the winelist. A different wine producer on the wine list from what they brought to the table.The wine was good though. Overall, still a nice experience.

Cosy and smallish Italian restaurant almost behind the north east corner of Senaatintori. It is the oldest italian restaurant in Helsinki established by ship cook Rolf Sjöberg in 1970. The food like fresh pasta and sauces are made in house.

Very friendly and good service. A long menu to select from. Had an excellent three course menu with seafood pizza as a main course. The dessert House ice cream is during Christmas time made of cookies and white chocolate - mmm! Nice celebration of 12.12.12.

Be prepared to book ahead during weekends and high seasons. The website is in Finnish but the a ala carte there also in Swedish and in English.

Our waiter was the best about our visit in Rodolfo. It is a restaurant so I would have hoped for good food also. Didn't like the soggy bruschetti. Then I had gnocchi with artichoke and boletus. This pasta had no taste what so ever. And the pasta wasn't gnocchi!
My friends didn't like their bruschetti or bread with tzatziki either. But the tortellini with bacon and blue cheese and the chicken with chevre were good.
No I don't think I'll be back here.

The starter was good, but both our main courses were so-so. Next time we will opt for a pizza instead of lamb shank (tough).
