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.

Excellent! We tried to make a sameday online booking but the risto was fully-booked. However, we were kindly adviced on the phone that one can come and queue for a table. So we did and got a table on the terrace in ten minutes. It...was lovely to dine there by the river and follow the buzzing street life. Terrace is semi self-service. One orders and pays by the counter indoors but drinks and food are yet served to the table. This worked out very well and service was cheerful, fast and very proffessional all through. We shared teriyaki beef as a starter and had pizzas as a main course. All excellent, even my my gluten free pizza. The ingrediences of pizzas were very high quality and inventive, mine with scampis and scallops. Yum!More

Great food, nice athmosphere and exceptionally good and fast service. What more could you ask for a dinner? Don't forget to make a reservation because Tintå is very popular and quite small.

We revisited Tintå this July. Although very popular and often crowded, the personnel managed to master the clientele very good. The service was fast (according to Finnish standards…) and friendly. The wine selection was good, and the portions very tasty.

Excellent lamb and feta soup. Just what you want and need on a cold day. Gulash type a warm soup will warm you up when you step in from freezing river bank. Nice fresh bites of just baked focaccia will top up the experience.

A second visit here. Excellent wine selection. Pizzas were great too. The athmosphere was lovely and staff friendly. Later in the evening we had to stop by again to taste even more wines.

Went for late lunch. Great food, especially the pizzas were superb. Enough room to choose your table with distance to other people, inside and out.

The food was superb and came very fast. Really worth the money. Also I felt very safe, the staff wore masks and there was enough space in the restaurant.

We booked a table in advance, but there was an unfortunate double booking so we had to wait a bit. The staff was really nice and gave us glasses of sparkling wine and a discount for the bill because we had to share a table...:) The food was absolutely delicious and was presented nicely. The dishes sre large so you will be full for sure! I want to return :)More

I went to Tintå a sunday with my colleague. It was one of the few restaurants that were open on a sunday and the reviews abd pics looked good but still it completely blew our minds. The restaurants was almost full, we didn't have a...booking but we got a table. I ordered the lamb skewer snd my colleague the korean pita. It was the best food we have had in a long time. We have the privilege to eat out quite often and sometimes at very highly rated establishments but this experience was so amazing. The staff, atmospehere and the very familiar yet amazingly clever food and palette combination was sensational. Just wow. To go to Turku without going to Tintå would be blasphemy from now on.More

The food came very fast. Maybe that was the problem... I ordered Tintå's falafels, which in my opinion were more dough balls than falafels. All of the vegetables that came with the dish were refrigerator cold even the peaches that had grill marks on them....The dish didn't have pomegranate seeds or nuts as stated on the menu. Instead there was a tomato and quinoa mash. I don't know what the idea behind the dish was. It was more like the kitchen dumpster than a thoughtful dish. The bread that came with my meal (not mentioned on the menu either) was delicious though! I also had the vegan tiramisu. There was so much amaretto in it that it overpowered all the other flavours.More

Judging by the few last reviews this place has some issues concerning the consistency of food. However our evening was near perfect. Table booked ( is a must to do) but arrived early, so we took some tapas and barolo on the terrace. Its possible...to eat outside without reservation, if the plentiful walk by traffic doesn't bother you. At the table we took Korean pita, which was just fantastic: when in Korea you make a roll of fillings in a large mangoldi/lettuce leave here the food was piled on a large pita bread. Wery good authentic taste. Sadly the beer scewer with fries was just all too salty, and just basic "steak and fries" after all. Efficient and friendly service.More

Weeknight 22 pm. We were in very late, but still we expected for this place to live up our expectations. It did not. The house special fries were soft, terrible mash. The weird porridge-like, oddly dry Tiramisu dragged me down to dessert hell. I’ve never...been offered such a failed, most likely off-the-freezer -version before. The seafood and cheese/strawberries pizzas were smallish, but good, but even they and the friendly attentive service could not turn this 3-course dinner into a winner.More
