This is an ordinary neighbourhood restaurant in Helsinki. I have visited this place few times over the years and this year we had yet another nice evening here. The staff was very friendly and the food from the chefs spelcial list was very good, a bit more authentic than some of the other italian restaurants in Helsinki.

Pieni paikka, hyvä olla pöytävaraus ainakin lauantaisin. Pidimme ruuista, erityisesti suppilovahverokeitosta ja risotosta. Small restaurant, good to have table reservation. We all liked our disches, especially soup made of trumpet-shaped chanterelles and risotto of the day.

Rodolfo is a classic Italian place in Helsinki, offering a variety of pastas and pizzas for a reasonable-ish price. However, the food was not that special during our visit, e.g. the salmon pasta was a bit too greasy and the pizza had so much tomato sauce that the crust was way too wet. Point for the Tiramisu though. Service was... More

First of all, it is the oldest Italian in the town. The owners cherrish the roots by serving nothing but quality on a plate. Personally I appreciate the most the staff who are able to deliver every night.

I have been a loyal customer to this place for years. The level of service and food have been steadily decreasing. And now it is the first restaurant where I have been offered dried tortellini instead of fresh once. Starters were ok, but the main course was total rubbish. You just don't offer dried tortellini in a restaurant unless judgement... More

This place was recommended to us by a business associate (local) and he was spot on. Lovely cozy atmosphere and friendly competent staff (even though it was the waitress' first day). Food was amazing, we had the garlic bread & tzatziki, and the panfried white fish with risotto. Heaven on a plate, 5stars

Went with my family and fiancée for an impromptu lunch. My parents had been there before but it was the first time for me. We had to reserve a table beforehand but could get one in an hour or so. We really enjoyed the food, both the appetizers and the main courses. The past with salmon and avocado had a... More

Family birthday dinner. The restaurant was quite crowded, but plenty of staff also around. The service was fast in the beginning, but once more and more people left, mysteriously slowed down. Down to pure negligence. Primi was ok, mussels in wine can't go wrong. Pizzas were not good, salty and tough like they had been microwaved! After everyone else had... More

We came in during a busy time, but as so many times before, they managet to get a table for us. The personnel was very friendly and helpful, and the meal we got was good and very Italian. And the wine that was recommended was perfect!
