My husband and I decided to try Skiffer after looking for budget friendly restaurants in Helsinki, and we were blown away by the quality of the food. Both of the pizzas we ordered were on a very thin base, and were absolutely delicious. The waiter...was also excellent - friendly, helpful and efficient. We are really glad we stumbled across Skiffer and would definitely recommend it for anyone looking for tasty pizzas with interesting toppings.More

Stumbled across this place and gave it try. Definitely not disappointed! It's essentially a pizza place, with some salads and sides. Some of the pizzas are a bit, unusual, but go with it. I had a fish pizza, it was great! We had two different...pizzas between us, and a starter of bread and dip. Really impressed with the food and the service was excellent. The hot apple and gin drink they were pushing was lovely too, I really enjoyed it. The only bit I didn't love was the Skiffer ale, not my taste at all. But I guess that's just personal choice, definitely try this place.More

Only pizza restaurant that i have been to in Helsinki, but i am sure it is the best. Not the typical pizzas but original pizzas with a variety of toppings.

Very unusual pizza combinations, but very tasty. Staff were very friendly and chilled/relaxed atmosphere. would have loved to have given a higher rating but the tables were quite dirty after other diners and we had to turn over our paper mats

My wife asked for a pizza meal - and we entered Skiffer. To our surprise they offered a åizza with trout and some vegetables and sauce on top. It tasted totally fantastic as this was the first time with a fisk - namely trout pizza....We loved the natural flavour and taste of this fantastic pizza. Completely recommendable at an affordable price for everybody.Super and nice service made this a perfect meal in Helsinki!---More

Visited on a weekday afternoon. Really not crowded at all before 16, good vibes, nice service and very good thin crust (my fave) pizza, not overloaded with toppings. A tad expensive, but worth it. There’s a park across the street if you wish to enjoy...the pizza outside (the terrace only hosts about 4 people, due to its location) and they sell take away with nice wooden cutlery to go, just remember to ask.More

Trying to find a best pizza in Helsinki. Ended up eating in Skiffer. Place was a bit difficult to find. Close to the center, But in quieter area. We were greeted friendly and even the place was quite full, there was place for us (we...didnt had a reservation). Ordered the ”meat” pizza. Crust was really thin and crisp. I liked it very much. Meat on my pizza was delicious, like slices of kassler steaks. Flavours were in my taste. Service was fast. I was hoping a bit more attention, But the place was full and waiters had their hands full. Anyways pizza was excellent, a bit different from normal selection of Finnish pizzas, that was What we were looking for. Quite expensive though. Enjoyed it. Good for customers looking a special gourmet pizza in Helsinki. (Signature beer was worth Tasting as well).More

After reading the reviews I have come to the conclusion that I visited on a bad day. A small restaurant with space for maybe 30 people I have pased by many times when it has been so full that I could not find a table,...so a popular place that leaves me with the conclusion that I was just unlucky. Because of its popularity I gave a score of 3, but for a long time concidering I feel that my score could easily have been a 2. When I arrived for lunch there were only 4 or 5 people inside, I ordered a pizza and waited about 15 minutes or so for the food to arrive. During this time the restaurant began to fill with smoke from something burning in the kitchen. At one point the smell got so bad that I felt that if it got any worse, I would have to go outside to get some fresh air. Shortly after the food arrived, the pizza was a very thin tomato and cheese pizza with a pile of salad on top. I found that I could only eat the middle of the pizza because the edge was burnt and I was unable to eat it, also there was too much salad and I had to leave some of that too. When it was time to leave there were other people arriving and the restaurant was filling up luckily for them the smoke smell had almost gone. A disappointing visit for me, I'll probably think twice before visiting again.More
