Italian food in Helsinki can be a lottery (or just a downright disappointment - see my La Famiglia review), but this place was pretty good. Went with colleagues and the atmosphere was quite lively, and the thin crust pizzas nice and tasty. Worth a stop off to start off your party evening.

Grim little basement "trattoria" under a rather average bar. Food (carbonara) was stodgy and others at my table (risotto and pizza) looked even worse - bring an appetite or you'll regret it bitterly. Sat for some considerable time before any of the waiters thought of bread. Wine was quick enough - little wonder as the food might require an alcoholic haze to make sure the punters can get it down. All things considered: put in a bit more effort and find a decent place to eat.

In summer you can walk from the Esplanade Park in a few minutes to this restaurant for a fine pizza. On the terrace you can enjoy the atmosphere in the sun.
