Most of the pizzas you can choose from are not even what I would call pizza. I mean, strawberries on pizza? Yuck! Mozzarella ICE CREAM on a pizza? Yuck! Seems like a chef who is trying way too hard to be different, but has no clue what is actually good. Still, the worst part is when you want to make... More

Like at the other restaurants of the same owner (Primula, Skiffer Liuskaluoto), the pizzas here are excellent. Thin crust, BIG size, delicious toppings. My only complaint is that the place is small, and sometimes very full (because it's delicious). Staff is nice and very friendly, no complaints there ! Last time I was there, it was not possible to reserve.... More

I was mildly skeptical at how well they would handle some of these unique pizzas using ingredients like fish and ice cream. We ordered the formaggio and itamera, and both were clever flavor combinations that I really want to eat again. This place is definitely worth the visit!

The pizzas were pretty unique and really enjoyable. The interior is quite small, but they were able to accommodate us rather quickly with a table with minimum wait. They speak excellent English too! So, it was perfect for travelers!

The first time I ate here I tried the Soigon (with strawberries on top) and it's been my pizza ever since. Efficient service, perfect for an early dinner / late lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Due to the compact size you might not get a seat (no reservations unless you are a large group) straight away - worth the wait... More

I had 2 trips to Helsinki and in both trips we enjoyed the pizzas at Skiffer (recommended by my friends). Very enjoyable, tasty and unique experience.

My favourite place for "pizza". And I wrote it correct by saing "pizza", as they prefer to use the name "lankku" = plank, for their pizzas (comes from the shape). Very unique fillings, so you can definitely have an experience here as well, but also get some good classics. If you have the opportunity, do taste the strawberry pizza or... More

Visited Skiffer with friends. The menu is a pizza menu which you do not understand if you don't already know it as it is not stated anywhere on the menu. We had KAA and Soignon liuskas ( =pizza). Ingredients were a bit different and good quality. Still in my opinion it was just a basic pizza. Nothing to make the... More
