Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Friendly service in the end, but no attention during the meal, nor somebody offering wine or additional water. Main course Lamb 35 e, dry full of tendons and not seasoned. Not worth the money. Corn bread with chease not baked enough so we left that....Weggie stew 21 e not impressing so we did not risk to try dessert. Only cool thing was the house sauces. Overall nice atmosphere but with +100 e only for the food part for 2 pers, you would expect more. This is a place where portions are huge so if you are hungry but not picky...More

Been to Rioni Helsinki so wanted to see if the one in Espoo was as good. It was PERFECT!! Food was delicious and super tasty, cooked to perfection ! Service was good, efficient and friendly. The restaurant is small so reservations are a must. Very...cosy. Charming interior. Forgot I was in Espoo! Had the dumplings, garlic chicken in smetana sauce, breads of course! Also the rolled Eggplant and cheese baked mushroom . All appetisers, great for sharing. And only one main, beef stew. Delicious! Portions are a good size, not big but very heavy so choose carefully. Did take home unfinished food so it was good. Definitely will go back!More

Disappointed of unfriendly service. They said that they have enough customers so they don't need to be friendly with us.More

Thank you for your review, that however does not tell the whole story. The fact that we bake in our small kitchen does not change by calling us off or especially by calling off the waiter doing her best. All information on allergens are visible...More

We reserved a table in Rioni to celebrate a friend. One member of our group has celiac disease, and it turned out that while the restaurant Rioni has noted several dishes with ”G” as in ”gluteine-free” in reality the food is contaminated i.e. prepared on...same surfaces and with same tools as food with gluteine. This they admitted to us without any regret, and clearly without understanding that with celiac disease contaminated food is very harmful even in very small doses. We tried to come up with a solution where one member of our group would not have to sit hungry while everyone else is eating, so we asked permission to order gluteine-free pizza in next door pizzeria, and everyone else in the group would eat Rioni’s dishes. The waitress rejected this hardly and said that the house is always full so they don’t have to accept. We changed restaurants. Very disapponting and unpleasant experience. Do not go if you are on gluteine-free diet.More

Hi, We have marked all "G's" with a star * and explained on the first page of the menu that we bake all the time in our kitchen, so for celiac allergy maybe our food is not an option. This menu can be read on...More

The food at Rioni is delicious, appetizingly presented and always a pleasure, but I want to especially commend the service. One person effortlessly and with good humour took care of service for the entire restaurant, including our large, noisy and at times demanding group, patiently...explaining the menu, making great suggestions, and presenting the various dishes with small anecdotes of Georgian food traditions. Kudos to our wonderful waiter - and of course to the Chef! We felt very welcome - and what a wonderful, relaxing and enjoyable meal we had!! ძალიან დიდი მადლობა!More

Lovely and warm service, very good food, although even a bit too large portions. Definitely worth a visit or several. Put on warm clothes, this restaurant is in old, chilly premises.

We had family dinner with Supra menu, which includes 13 dishes. Food was excellent and there was plenty of it. Food was as good as in Tbilisi and relieved my longing to have chance to visit Georgia again. Highly recommendable. Will come back for take...away (Corona restrictions hitting next week). Khinkali and Khatchpuris were wonderful.More

Lots of vegetarian options. Small cosy place in espoo. If you are a cheese lover you would love many of the options they have. Wine was amazing

I’ve only asked the food at home, but the food was really delicious, the delivery was extremely effective. The price is affordable and with 30€ you can eat pretty well in couple. Anxious to know the place in person!

The tastes were very delicious, best of the menu were hatsapuri and khinkalis, they were superb. Chicken in strong garlic sauce was also very tasty. Only small problem was with the main course, roasted pork, the taste was also good, but the meat was very...chewy. If they would improve the meat quality a bit, this would be great place. But anyway, highly recommended, especially because in Espoo there isn't so many good restaurants. Very good service also.More

As an armenian living in Finland and knowing about our beautiful neighbours food culture and people, I have to say that Rioni is the best Georgian restaurant in Finland. You will get warm Georgian hospitality and tasty traditional Georgian food. 🇬🇪❤️🇦🇲

First class service, and excellent ambience in the small but cosy restaurant. Best Georgian food I have found in Finland. Meat dishes were especially good. Price quality ratio is well matched. Will definitely go again.

What a great discovery in the heart of Espoo. Our first experience of Georgian cuisine was amazing - very good! We were pampered by Ms Sini who took such good care of us and gave us a tour of the interesting menu. Can’t wait for...the next visit!More
