“A Finnish-style Italian - easy, cosy and seldom a disappointment”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is one of my favourites in Turku - do not get me wrong; it is NOT a fine dining or excellent service (on the contrary the service is always poor) but it´s a place where you can eat a good pizza, talk with ypur friends in a " not so formal" atmosphere (in summertime try the Roof Terrace) and get a full stomach. The variety of pizzas is amazing; at least 30 different to choose! And they do have these funny names like "Beckham" , "PAvarotti" ,etc. Food is ok - never a great experience but on the other hand never a disappointment. So, an avarege 3 stars. I gave one "plus" more because of the "easiness" - whatever you wear or wish to eat / drink (it´s not only the pizzas but pastas, sallads etc.) you can easily pop in!

“Busy day, poor food”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Tuesday evening in July at Dennis with family and house was full. Kitchen was very slow. We waited pizzas about half an hour. Pizza Capricciosa and kids mozzarella and ham pizza was below average. Ham was straight from market's self and like prepared food. Also pasta bolognese was average. Only one pizza Lazio was good and what we expected. Service was moderate.

“Overrated”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Dennis is probably the best known pizzeria in Turku and we had high expectations, but the pasta was not that great - or maybe our expectations were too high? Service was good and people were kind. One thing that I did not like was, that the tableware was dirty, old and unpleasant to use.

“Popular Italian with a Roof Terrace”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

A popular place, might be hard to find a table. You can eat on the roof terrace and enjoy the evening sun. In the end of June I ate after 9pm and the sun was still shining! Prices are acceptable.

“Popular pizzeria in Turku”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Pizzeria Dennis is one of my favourite restaurants in Turku. The house does not impress from outside but inside interior is quite cosy (and has not changed since 1980's, I guess). The pizzeria serves tasty pizzas that are not italian style. Maybe they are traditional Finnish pizzas (?). Pizzeria Dennis is especially good for hangover gettogethers with friends... I recommend!
