Wasn't expecting Helsinki to be such a foodie's paradise, but it is ... and of the several excellent high-end restaurants we went to, this was the best (though not the the most expensive). Basic tasting menu with wine pairings was more than sufficient, though you...can obviously do more courses if you choose. The place is small and cozy which only adds to the ambiance and the service was absolutely impeccable (in fact I wish I had asked our server's name so I could commend him here). Don't miss this place and be sure to book to avoid disappointment.More

Nice, small and cosy fine dining restaurant. We had three course menu and wine. Food was excellent and service was first class. Weather was nice to walk there from the center and it was worth every penny.

I wish there were more than 5 stars to be given to this incredible, cozy, warm, delicious little establishment. I did not get the name of the host/manager on the night but the service he provided was first-rate. Food wise, the menu changes regularly so...no need to go into vast detail on what we had but suffice to say that everything we had was sensational. Price-wise, Helsinki restaurants can be quite expensive but out of the ones we chose that week, this one had the best food AND the best value. It still isn't cheap but is worth every penny. It would be worth travelling to Helsinki just to eat there again.More

We went here to celebrate my efforts in the Helsinki Marathon that morning and I have to say that Aito really hit the spot. It was a really relaxing evening. Lovely staff who were more than happy to explain the subtleties of every dish and...to help select the wine. We went for the a la carte menu and had the goose and trout followed by the deer and pork and then the liquorice/raspberry and yoghurt/strawberry (if I remember correctly). Every single mouthful of every dish was delicious. Good honest cooking at its best.More

Excellent dinner at small and cosy Aito. We had the three course menu which was perfect. Service attentive and very knowledgable. Highly recommended!

In a nutshell, excellent food and great service. A small and cosy place with an informal atmosphere. We both had the full 6 course menu with wine suggestions and can't think of a thing I'd change. This is one of the places you ought to...have a special 6th star you could give once a year.More

Very nice tiny restaurant in the residential area of Töölö. A bit difficult to find, so follow the Google Map directions diligently. Food has Finnish flavours with fine dining twist. Very polite and professional staff. Recommend to take the matched wines with the menu. Innovative...and interesting choices and perfect match with the dishes.More

The whole experience was amazing. Relatively small cozy restaurant with the most polite and serviceminded staff. We had different menus and all 8 dishes was absolutely delicious.

We booked for a Saturday evening and had a good table by the window. We went a la carte and had starters and mains, no dessert. All dishes beautifully presented with good flavours and textures. Service friendly and English-speaking. Small selection of wines only available...by the glass which was good for us. A little distance from central Helsinki but well worth the short tram ride.More
