Very good experience! Pastas and pizzas were delicious, the place was nice and the staff was friendly. Exceptionally quick reaction for the intention to pay the bill, which was great customer service. I will definitely cole again!

We had such a delicious dinner at Locanda Scappi! Highly recommend to order many different portions and share all with friends to get truly Italian experience. So many great things to try! Wines and cocktails were also so great.

Food was a true disappointment, such as the service. Nothing to do with an Italian restaurant. Worst carbonara of my life. One of us had to wait longer than others both main course and the dessert.

Hi Teemu, thank you for visiting and we're sorry to hear that the experience didn't match your expectations of an Italian restaurant!

Food was big disappointment! Even their signature dish was very basic, not mind blowing or even excellent. We were party of six and none of us were happy with our meals, which was not even close to real Italian food experience. We had one person...with allergies, waitress acknowledged it, but in the end forgot it and the meal had to be prepared again. The service was slow, our waitress did not speak any Finnish and was not really polite. I simply cannot recommend this is you are looking for real Italian food experience.More

Hi Kirsi, sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the food and that it didn't match your expectations of Italian food. Some of our waiters are Italian and haven't yet had the chance to learn fluent Finnish :)

Very poor risotto in the Kasarmitori summer beer garden. I understand that it's a food stall and not a restaurant portion(quality) but the risotto was salty and the rice was way too hard. I was disappointed because I've read praising reviews of the restaurant.

Hi, so sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the risotto! We'll be sure to assess the products for these final weeks of Kasarmitori opening and hope to see you some day at our Katajanokka restaurant. Have a sunny August!

After reading all the positive reviews it was time to give Locanda Scappi a visit. A very disappointing meal.. the one additional star goes to the one server who was attentive and extremely pleasant. The starters were decent but nothing to write home about. The...main course was so salty, I felt the chef seasoned it twice.. Desert was "meh".. all for the price of 38€ per menu (excluding drinks). There is no atmosphere, unless you consider a train station as ambience.. people walking back and forth.. dogs, noise.. smoke.. Sadly, I will not be returning but I do hope that the restaurant takes these comments onboard.More

Late lunch. The food was magnificent. There are many wannabe Italian places out there but also authentic ones. This one is the latter : One can really taste chef's passion for good cooking. The service minded waiters managed everything even though the place was 70%...full capacity. A definite return to this place! Thank-you for surprising us.More
