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.

What an excellent find this restaurant was! So friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious, celebrating all the best of Helskini. Our first visit to Helsinki and a memorable meal. Sorry to hear Aito is closing. Wishing the staff all the best. Thank you

Excellent service, very very good food and the dessert a real surprise! Highly recommended and worth the price (which are not very high).

Day one in a new city, in a new country, as a tentative tourist amidst my work here. On the way back to my hotel I chanced upon Aino - I’d read the reviews and thought: maybe a bit advanced for day one. I’m so...glad I came. The service was warm and welcoming and the food was out-of-this-world. Seriously good. Especially the braised lamb… best lamb I’ve ever tasted. Good wine accompaniments and excellent knowledge of the glasses with which I was presented. It’s a real event, and a privilege to eat such a good menu. I will be back here for sure - just please keep that lamb in the menu! Thank you so much.More

unreasonably high prices, offer of set menus, very little space for a set number of tables, too many words… pay for advertising, not for quality…

Everything was delicious. Very short menu, you can tell the resturant has invested in select, seasonal ingredients. Service was speedy and friedly.

The service was great. We felt welcome immediately once we walked in. We has the 6 course tasting menu, with wine and non-alcoholic drinks suited to the menu. Some dishes could have been better but overall the experience was great due to the service.

We had a very pleasant dinner, with quality foor, friendly atmosphere and even friendlier service - but not fantastic value at over €160 (including 12% service) for two, with three small glasses of wine between us and no coffee.

I booked this restaurant after reading other reviews on Tripadvisor and Ravintola Aito did not disappoint. The food was exceptional, prepared to a really high standard and cooked to perfection, with fresh and great tasting ingredients. We had the Swede and Fireweed / Herring to...start, followed by Goat / Beef for main and a Rhubarb Bavarois for dessert, all of which were spectacular. Portion sizes were also reasonable, filling enough without feeling too stuffed and the wine was great too. I guess the menu changes on a regular basis, so you’re in for a treat whatever they happen to be serving when you’re lucky enough to visit. The service was also fantastic, with great explanations for each dish; nothing was too much trouble for the two members of staff that looked after us - they did everything with a smile and greeted everyone like a long lost friend! Considering the quality of the food and the portion sizes, I thought the price was reasonable; it wasn’t cheap, but you get what you pay for so spending a bit more was definitely worth it. Thoroughly recommend a visit if you get the chance…More

The food was very good, and the service extremely attentive. But the portions are a particular kind of miniscule. I’m used to fine dining and been to various fancy Michelin star (and Michelin wannabe) restaurants, but this is honestly the first time I’ve walked out...of a restaurant hungry, and this after three courses. I mean, even the bread, you don’t even get a whole bun like in most places, but a fraction of a bun. The main? Two pieces of meat the size of an Ipad charger, and half a dozen string beans as sides. I’ll repeat that what I had was good, but had I known I would either have gone for more courses, or else eaten something beforehand. I don’t mind paying and I’m aware that it’s Finland and a certain kind of restaurant, but come on.More

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
