Zucchini is a place to review your vegetarian lunch prejudices: they offer excellent, very tasty, filling lunch in a cosy atmosphere. Place can be a little crowded, but usually one can easily find a seat.

We went on a Monday for lunch. There was a set menu, creamy soup with assorted breads and a cabbage and veg main, with beets, berries and salad. A huge plate full of food. The menu was around 13€ plus we ordered wine. The staff was very helpful and informative. Also, the soup could be ordered vegan or vegetarian.

What a bit of luck staying in a hotel in the same street as this restaurant. The portions are plentiful, colourful and very tasty. The service was excellent with bread and water included. For Helsinki the prices are good value and I would recommend eating here even if your are not vegetarian.

We visited Zucchini in a party of 8, most of whom were vegetarian. The cafe has a special each day and ours was Mexican chilli and mushroom soup. Both were really tasty. Portions were extremely plentiful and had we wanted more we could have. Excellent food and service!

I used to come here very often when I was working nearby. The meals are huge, various, delicious and you are not leaving this place hungry :) The staff is so lovely that I could go there only because of them. Go there if you want tasty vegetarian food for a reasonable price!

Very pleasant place! It is a small self-service lunch restaurant, open Mon-Fri from 11-16. After choosing from the menu, you give your order and pay, then take a seat where you will be served your meal. The dish of the day for about 10 EUR looked enormous, and since I was not that hungry, I chose a smaller one for... More

Even if I'm not vegetarian, I really enjoyed the food! Zucchini it's a small place, full with locals having lunch break. You can sit close to strangers and have conversation while enjoying the great and tasty food, not boring at all even if you're not a vegetarian like me.

Love this kind of concept, they have a "dish of the day", different one for each day of the week. The price is great too and the food very fresh, very tasty. Today I had an Onion Soup and a Chickpea Loaf with quinoa, veggie curry and salad :) Will come back for sure! The staff is very kind!

I come here regularly and this is one of my favourite vegetarian restaurants in town. The restaurant is only open for lunch (until 4 p.m.) and does not offer an a la carte menu. It's basically like a canteen where one has to queue to get the food on offer. The menu changes daily and consists of a soup or... More
