We had a birthday dinner in this restaurant. We enjoined everything there - atmosphere was very nice with quite music on the background. Food was great and wine pairing was selected very professionally. One thing to be mentioned separately - they have not only wine...pairing but also beer pairing and even cocktail pairing. Both - wine and cocktail pairings - were great.More

We went to enjoy our evening with good enough food and wine to want to return another time. The waiting service was great, location is excellent, kitchen is unfortunate, the wine selection horrible. Tasteless dishes, mostly consisting of diverse flavours of mousse in four courses....Another copy/paste system of attempting fancy food but ending up disrespecting those who have to eat these uninspired, pretentious mousse combinations. It would be lovely if the Italian kitchen staff would bring in some of their own culture into the foods, as there clearly must be talent behind the scenes, and leave visual trickeries to those recently graduated from hospitality schools and rely on good taste, well planned menus and at least medium standard wines.More

So nice, everything was just perfect. Friendly staff, great drinks and food and a relaxed atmosphere. On top of that even the pricing was decent, so no complaints here, highly recommended.

Very cozy place with a nice ambience and great staff. We had very high expectations based on previous reviews. The staff explained the concept, the menu and they were very attentive. The beer and wine was great, as were the drinks. The menu was made...from rather basic ingredients and left us with a somewhat divided experience - some of it was very nice but some of the Finnish influences were perceived as less successful. Taste is subjective but we would have preferred a stronger italian influence.More

This small fine dining bistro is located in the very heart of Helsinki. The kitchen is a cross-Italian-Finnish, very innovatively mixing ingredients in its delicious four-course menu. You only need to select the drinks, and you have three different drink menu selections available, suited for...the menu. Nice, warm, cosy and welcoming atmosphere. Warmest recommendations!More

We had reserved a table, and had a set menu with four courses. I had a wine pack, while my partner had a “surprise pack” that consisted of wine, beer and drinks. Both the food and drinks were excellent, and perfectly paired. The service was...great. Would definitely recommend!More
