I first ate here around 8 months ago, (had only appetisers + wine) and the food was good. Yesterday I ate again with a friend and did not leave feeling happy. My pizza had so little cheese on it that it felt like I was...eating only tomato sauce. (and since it was a margherita..) The base was (mostly) thin enough, but very hard to cut. My friend had the pasta with cheese and pepper. Instead of tasting like a mixture of parmesan/grana padano, the cheese reminded us of emmental or something similar. For dessert I ordered a latte, which cost a crazy 4,70 and was barely the size of a cappuccino. Needless to say I will never go back, if not for a bottle of wine with some appetiser.More

We picked this restaurant because it was close to our hotel but we were not disappointed. Cosy restaurant, efficient waiter and good meat. We had entrecôte with french fries and red port wine sauce and it tasted good. Had a nice bottle of red wine...with it.More

Rivoletto on Valentines day, great idea huh? No. Ordered an over-priced clam pasta, when it arrived my bf said he could smell it. When I started eating there was sand in it and seafood was not fresh. And that’s not all, I started feeling so...unwell that had to come home, Valentines ruined. The restaurant looks beautiful, but it’s a polished turd. Never again. The service was lovely though, very progessional.More

We decided to go here for dinner. As with most Italian restaurants in Heksinki we found they predominantly served pizza and very little pasta. However we both really enjoyed our pizzas. I chose Margherita which came with fresh baby tomatoes and fresh basil leaves. My...husband chose the Quattro Stagione. Both were really tasty and thin, which is just how we like them. We chose to have a salad on the side which had a really nice dressing. We were surprised to see the same waiter that we had seen the evening before in Rivolo as they share a kitchen. I did not have a dessert but my husband did and unlike the pizza which we rated very highly it was just OK.More

We had just driven back from northern Finland and was recommended by a bar around the corner. A simple meal - my wife had linguine and I had risotto, both very enjoyable in s decent place with attentive staff.

I love pizza. Everybody loves pizza. And I had a really good one at this restaurant! BUT the waiter was so jaded, it was really unpleasant. Not a single smile, throwing your plate on the table. I mean, yes we are tourists and we don't...speak finnish but please! Make us want to come back! Because it's the only thing I didn't like about this place!More

Enjoyed a very tasty pizza Quattro Fromaggi and nicely presented chocolate fondant dessert. Limited but key wine list. Served in a very friendly and personal style. Interior to sit in is not so special however the quality of food and personal touch from staff compensates...sufficiently even to score 5 star!More
