Always such a pleasure to visit Il bucatino. Best Italian cuisine in Helsinki with delightful staff. I recommend the Vitello Tonnato for everyone to try.

What a nice experience ! Had a three course dinner, and everything was just perfect, so tasty. The atmosphere is very nice and relaxed, I’m sure we’ll go back.

Have visited Il Bucatino for few times now and every time has been a delight. I am obsessed with their Caprese and Parmigiana di Melanzane! Very nice dishes and good wine selection. I am not a big fan of prosecco but theirs is very good....Service is fast and frank, just the way I like it. I would advise to make a reservation even during week night.More

What an amazing place to celebrate. Absolutely top notch food, especially the pastas. I can´t fault anything about this place actually. We were 11 people at the table and everybody loved all about this place. Cordiali saluti! Famiglia Fast

Innovative presentation on the vitello tonnato but the flavours and textures were also excellent. The person who appeared to be the owner was very friendly when we arrived and left. Service seemed a bit inexperienced and the kitchen staff was making a lot of noise...doing dishes and restocking cutlery.More

Had a dinner there with antipasti pasta and secondi and dolci. All food was delicious and made with traditional Italian style. Service was a bit slow as the waiter was not keeping eyes open. Also could have been a bit more kind... anyway we enjoyed...the food and probably this is the best Italian in Helsinki currently.More
