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.

This was my third visit to Helsinki in the last 5 years and every time I have paid a visit to Ragù. I love the creative fusion of Finnish and Italian tradition and found also this time our experience as outstanding.

We had dinner in Ragu on Wednesday evening. This was our second visit here. Food was very good and wines worked perfectly. Extra credits to breads, they were absolutely fantastic. Service was good but very slow. We waited 45 minutes before getting our breads. And...during the whole dinner we had to wait and wait. No matter how good the food the waiting makes it less exceptional. Too bad because food, wine and deco are really good at Ragu.More

Desperate for a nourishing and satisfying meal after a long day of sightseeing, i chanced Ragu and was delighted. The three-course lunch was a perfect balance of satisfying, healthy, and exotic-- The salad and focaccia perfection could have stood alone although next came the generous-portion...main dish perfectly spiced with red onion, hummus and tofu. The chocolate mouse that followed was better with the silken tofu than had it been dairy-rich, leaving me satisfied and not craving even coffee as a chaser. Hours later, i'm wondering whether i'll ever be hungry again and how to up the game when i return to my home kitchen. It's hard to imagine a meal being a disappointment coming from RaguMore

We had the 5 course surprise menu with accompanying wines. One of us had the vegan menu. All dishes were excellent; great combinations of food and flavor. All wines were Italian and very tasteful. Very recommendable!

We had the 4 course surprise menu with wine pairing. All was good, especially the tuna ceviche and the pea soup, the only thing we missed a bit was the Scandinavian twist. Of course all wines were Italian, but also the food (except for the...ceviche)was more international / mediterranean than Scandinavian.More

A Michelin-guide restaurant in Helsinki that would benefit of a better wine selection. Medium to bad service staff. The vegetarian alternative was awesome.

Service 2/5. Basic etiquette rules are unknown in this place. Poor drinks / aperitif selection Atmosphere 2/5. Such a boring atmosphere at the restaurant caused by lack of illumination, people were just falling asleep. Food 3/5. Michelin is just a word nowadays :)

The service was the best part of our visit. Waiters were professionals and friendly. The atmosphere was chic but not too fancy. I loved how the tables weren't too close to each other so that we didn't need to have a shouting competition with other...guests. We took Ludari surprise menus. The food was good, but not the best I've had in Helsinki. A special shout out to the bread selection that was served for an appetizer. It was delicious.More

Hi, they'll change the menu every quarter and the surprise menu can be taken with 3-4-5 courses.
