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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The waiter taking our order did not even greet us and seemed a bit rude and busy to get on with it. The pasta was very plain and really nothing special; not worth the price. I needed gluten free pasta, which cost 2€ extra. And...what I got was boring market pasta (I can live with that, I've had worse and am happy to have any gluten free served), and the chicken in the pasta had a taste like it was freezed before. Not good. Also looking at the working in the kitchen while waiting I can't say to be very sure this restaurant can actually serve coeliac safe gluten free pasta.More

Always a good choice for a nice pasta. If the Nepalese gentleman is serving it will be very good and friendly service. Food selection good and always fresh.

It's nice that you can find something else than pizza or burger fast food restaurants in shopping malls. My Shrimp Pasta(Pilpil) was boiled perfectly, but unfortunately it wasn't at all spicy, like menu said. There weren't too many shrimps either and size was more like...secondi piatti, than main course...enough for our ladies, but not enough for us guys. So almost 19€ for that was little bit too much.More

This is a good restaurant for a nice meal with a decent price. We stepped in for a late lunch, hungry for something tasty and simple (Italian cuisine is so good at that!). The bread with salt and olive oil as an appetizer was great,...then we both ordered simple pasta with sage and olive oil. The pasta was al dente, the portion was great and the sauce was tasty (I added a bit of salt, but that is an individual choice - I'd rather have an undersalted than overwalted dish delivered to my table). Service was quick, and we could watch as the chef prepared our meal. No complaints.More

Nice restaurant on the top floor of Jumbo Mall next to Stockmann. A good menu selection of pastas. The service is quick and friendly. It will take a moment for the kitchen to prepare your meal and you can watch the chef prepare it if...you are seated close to the kitchen.More

The pasta was tasty, but the bill construction was not. Unusual for any Finnish restaurant, the place is billing extra for a jug of tap water (3,60€), bread (4 slices for 4,40€) - and hey, this is a pasta joint - pay extra for getting...parmesan to sprinkle on your portion! If you don't mind this (Venize style) billing, which I think sucks, the pasta is really worth the visit.More

Had a pasta with lamb fillet for lunch here. The pasta was decent, but the pricing is way too high, 18 € for a mediocre pasta is just too much. What was also interesting was that the pasta had a lot of parmesan cheese on...it without me asking for it, luckily I like it, but I can imagine somebody else maybe doesn't. Very unlikely that I will choose this restaurant again, mainly due to the pricing. Service was friendly.More

I had lunch with my parents at this cozy restaurant with a nice atmosphere on the second floor of the shopping mall before heading to the airport. I was a bit worried if the portions would come in time since I didn't have that much...time left and there were also other customers in the restaurant. We received the portions in just about 10 minutes by this super nice waitress who clearly seemed to really care for the customers. The portions were delicious and the prices in respect of the portions reasonable. However the customer service was the cherry on top of the cake and we left the place smile on our faces. We'll for sure come back.More

As mostly in Finland food is expensive. I asked for some cheese because in my pasta it wasn`t enough. They charged 2,50€ for it. Just a spoonful. Well, this is Finland.

Situated in the Jumbo Shopping Complex at Vantaa,five minutes from the airport.If you have done stop over hours Jumbo is a good place to head for. Chose this resteraunt because I love pasta ,and they make there own..you can see getting made. Service a little...slow initially but staff pleasant and looked nice in their uniforms. Good range of pasta sauces. The pasta was delicious but spoilt by the amount of salt either in the sauce or the pasta..we had four different sauces and all said the same. Resteraunt nicely laid out,nice decor, mobility friendly and reasonably pricedMore

My pasta pomodoro was good and tasty. Pasta is freshly made. Portion is small , left me hungry. Also tje dish too expensive for just a plate of macaroni. Sure can make as good at home for a 1/20 of the price. Not the fastest...service for a quick lunch.More
