Good food, great house 🍷 wine that goes well with carpaccio, pasta and steak. Steak cooked red to perfection. Sea Food spagetti was delish. Excellent service, take a window table, enjoy a Limoncello and live a happy life 👌

Would definetely recommend the restaurant to everyone. This is a cozy small family run restaurant near Kamppi. The food is great and very reasonable prices. We really enjoyed antipasti plate and pizza and tiramisu.

Our new local - and what a place! Run by Italians with huge passion for food. Topped with excellent service. Try their self made sausages and Panna Cotta among others.

After a year in Helsinki we’ve finally found our Italian joint. The salcicci (homemade!) in my pasta was exquisite as was the sauce. Edmund, our waiter, (from slightly east of Italy) was knowledgeable and attentive. My well traveled 13 year old daughter pronounced the gnocchi...the best she ever had. The bruschetta wasn’t great. The bread wasn’t as fresh as it could be, probably because it was Sunday, and the tomatoes weren’t as flavorful, because it’s Finland, but the presentation was lovely and the mozzarella,garlic, and balance were perfect. Well worth a small walk out of the center!More

I had lunch in Zio Pepe with my dad. Service was relatively friendly and fast, but the restaurant was noisy and quite empty. Starter salad table reminded me of kebab restaurants. Meals we tried from the lunch tasted simply dull and not very Italian. We...were asked if we needed some ketchup for example.More

Pizza was real good and 'cheap' for the quality. That all. And nice place. Need a nap. Have to write something- something

I have etane bruschetta first, which is really good, but rather small for the price. I then took the pizza alla rucola, which is good (not extraordinary). The place is nice and real Italian personnel.

Nice little restaurant near Kamppi center and mall. If you like italian food, visit this place! Only minus is the air-conditioning - fumes from the kitchen disturbe a little bit. But anyhow - nice athmosphere!
