We had a great experience tonight at Panini. When we came, we felt welcomed and had our table ready. The food was great, we had different pastas, risotto, raviolis, one panino. And nuggets and fries for the kids. Everyone loved their food and drinks. And...also the desserts were delicious. Our waitress Iida (or Ida) was amazing, not confused at all even though our party of 11 people is not always easy for the restaurant staff :) she got all of our orders right and was very friendly the whole time. It is so nice that there are restaurants that welcome kids too. Thank you for a great evening! We can warmly recommend Panini.More
On one hand , the Service has been great, very good waiter and professional . On the other hand, The food has been terrible . It has begun with the starters: Ciabattas, which were not ciabattas but simple grilled standard bread. However, the main dishes...have been both more than passables : between the fish/shrimp pasta which were smelly and far from being fresh, to the pesto pasta soaking in oil , terrible . All those pricy . Never again and do not recommend it.More
Today we planned to eat pizza. We ordered two pizzas at Panini. After waiting for half an hour I asked the waitress if it will still take some time before we are served. After a while she came back and said that the pizzachef haden`t...even started yet as he had not noticed the order from the waitress. Notable to say that the restaurant was almost empty, olny one tabel reserved. That was enough for us and we left - and will never go back.
We had a family gathering in Panini as it looks child friendly. Three of us ordered various risottos, two received theirs lukewarm, mine came definitely cold. So, I took it to the chefs who prepared a new portion. With great anticipation I tucked in... and...it was cold. The seafood which was sprinkled on the dish was still fridge- cold, the plate was cold and the rice was not even lukewarm. I talked to a friendly waitress who said that their food is freshly prepared and it is hot. Speechless, I was.More
Service was very good, staff were friendly.
I had a steak which was very nice but they would only cook it medium or well done which is common in FInland.
Wine was nice.
Good location and a nice room.
€90 for main course each and...a bottle of wineMore
Good, central location near river front and City Centre. Stylish interior and large place. Safe menu full of Italian standards, but also burgers etc. Food was tasty, although some said quite salty. Service was little "shaky" and we had some problems with our bill, but...still overall nice lunch with our friends. Not the cheapest place in Turku and especially drinks/wines quite expensive, but worth of visitMore
I would have thought that a Saturday night would have demanded a reservation but on arrival the surprisingly vast layout was quite empty. Located in a quiet cul-de-sac close to the Cathedral and River Aura the interior is a little drab and uninspiring resembling more...of a fast food restaurant rather than a select Italian diner. The food was tasty, although the difference between the two pizzas we ordered was noticeable by the fact that one was severely over-cooked with inedible charred edges. The kitchen staff, visible through glass panels, worked tirelessly but none exhibited hair coverings that should be necessary to conform to hygienic standards. The wine list was a little mean and only basic options were offered at vastly inflated prices: I would not recommend the 2015 Chianti. Finally we queried the "Italian" ice cream dessert and was told that it was not at all 'Italian' but made by a Finnish Artisan, whatever that means - maybe there is a contravention of trade descriptions in this case. I would not go back here for another meal and suggest that Turku offers many other dining experiences - and in the same area - that are a far better option.More
