“Good Italian food with a descent price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

This Italian restaurant offers really nice pizzas and pastas for the same price as the Turkish fast food places. The place is very popular, so on weekend evenings I would recommend to make an reservation in advance. In my personal experience I prefer their pastas over pizzas. I have always had great pasta there, but sometimes with pizzas the quality is so and so (too much cheese, or a little bit raw baking). Their lunches are great too and it includes a coffee and a piece of ice cream, too. And of course the great starting salad is always included in the price.

“Great Value in Downtown Lahti”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

This Italian restaurant offers a diverse choice of cuisine beyond standard pasta dishes. Food quality and presentation are solid by Finnish standards but hardly amazing compared to genuine Italian food. Instead of going with a pasta dish, I ordered a horse steak. The restaurant has a good decor and broad appeal across a variety of clientele. Most menu options are also explained in English making the restaurant an ideal stop for visitors. Finally, the restaurant is conveniently located in the heart of Lahti, adjacent to the market plaza.

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

Never been here before but I thought I would give it a go, having recently been to Italy the food (pizza) was great, service was excellent and overall great value for money. If you are staying in Lahti well worth a visit.

One of the most Italian restaurants in Finland. Food is always good. There is wide variety of choices on the list. Try ice cream also!

“Very popular, always full of ppl”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

Probably the most popular restaurant in Lahti. Italian food, quite big portions with suitable prices. They also have plenty of different tastes of ice cream, try it and you won't be disappointed! Very often fully occupied with a little cue on the door. I recommend you to make a reservation.
