“Good food reasonably priced”
Review of Rosso - CLOSED

Reviewed December 8, 2012

I was here in December 2012 with a friend for an evening meal. Being in central Helsinki it isn't cheap, although the food was tasty & the portions ample. As a regular visitor to Helsinki I'll eat here again; and the family also enjoyed it!

I visited this restaurant mostly because it was raining and it was close to the Hotel Cumulus Hakaniemi, where I was staying. Also, the front desk person suggested it.

Rosso looked nice, both inside and outside. The menu had a pretty good variety of Italian foods and there were both Finnish and English versions of the menu available. The staff was friendly and pretty attentive up though the time when the food was served. After that, they mostly allowed me to eat quietly.

The meal started with a smoked salmon appetizer, which was reasonably generous for the price and very nice quality. The best surprise was the vegetarian gnocchi, which was perfectly prepared and quite flavorful, with lots of nice roasted red peppers, mushrooms, onions and a light amount of tasty tomato sauce. The portion size was moderate and appropriate.

Cost was a pretty normal for Helsinki.

All in all, this was a very good experience!

we were 3 families ( 6 people and 2 kids) to this restaurant in March. The food is very ordinary. We ordered some pasta and soup and beer. The portions were very less and the price was too high. The food too was not tasty at all. Like any average pizzeria. The only plus point is that it had something for kids to play and that gave some time for my friends to eat in peace. Never visit again!!!

Very nice italian restaurant in the middle of Helsinki area.You can have very tasty spaghetti there, as well as pizza. Prices are very friendly for the pocket. You know that it is difficult to eat something tasty in this part of the Europe, but Rosso deserves to visit it. After nice supper in the middle of the city, you can go and have some beer if one of Helsinki pubs.
