Nerone has been one of my personal favorites for over 10 years now. The restaurant is at the corner of Pursimiehenkatu and Perämiehenkatu and is very much in favor of the local companies and law enforcement (always a good sign). The local police favors the place so much, that local people have often complained about the police vehicles taking all parking space in the vicinity.

The reason for popularity is obvious, dinners are very tasty and BIG! The price for the dishes is very cheap and the only thing one might be suspicious about is the interior, the place has obviously seen it's best days for quite some days ago, but the kitchen is clean and food is excellent. As a tourist, certainly a place to get a "different type of dining experience" and very local clients.

The menu is big enough to cater various tastes, but strongly recommend pasta dishes.

Authentic Italian food and excellent pizza! Really large portions too. Wine list is basic and service sporadic (sometimes excellent, sometimes bordering rude) but otherwise great local spot for informal dinner.

I'm Italian and therefore I'm used to be very demanding about food in general. Nerone is, in my point of view, the best Italian trattoria in Finland. A warm and friendly atmosphere is granted. I'm used to go to Nerone with all my (big) family, expecially for pizzas and pastas. Low prices and high quality: this is the secret of Nerone. Buon appetito! Valter Benigi, Helsinki
