Do you want a very typical Italian pizza? Laurentius it's the place for you! Very good pizza and sweets with an exquisit service. E ve lo dicono due italiani!

Italian, yes. Pizza, yes. Waiting time almost 1 hour for quattro pizzas, which take approx. 1 minute to bake. Yes, the oven is not too big n such, but really. Noticed also staff-members making very poor quality jokes about customers (in italian, but some of...us do understand italiano). Maybe for them it’s funny to insult customers when most of them wont even understand… pfft. Then the product itself, as we all know, Margherita is the one pizza from where you know if pizza is good quality or… The bake was more or less ok’ish. A bit too burned in the borders… but then, dough was quite flat in sense of flavours. Tomato sauce was very wet + extra moisture from flor di latte, this (as you can expect) caused the dough to be almost raw/not baked in the middle. Floating in extra oil and then destoying fresh basil by baking it… oh jeez. So, tasteless margherita with not so high quality ingredients it seems = poor quality pizza Yes, obliviosly it was better than in most of the non-Italian pizzerias, but if you grave for napolitaen gourmet pizza there are A LOT better places to get them in Helsinki. Cheers, We will not come back to wait for your pizzas again.More

We’ve visited here three times,and we haven’t gotten pizza at any of those times. First time, thursday afternoon sold out. Second time, they did not sold it at lunch time and third time, after a long wait, we were informed that the pizza would no...longer be sold (and it was friday at 2.30 pm). We wont visit place 4th time.More

We visited on a sunny but cold day in May for brunch, but the food with it's authentic flavours and warm welcome warmed us up and made it feel like we would be in Italy once again! A warm recommendation from us. #gelato #pizza #prosecco

Definitely worth a visit! A nice atmosphere in an old wooden house and was surprised to find Italian style pizza and gelato there. Everything was delicious - the pizza, gelato and pastries!

Took take away pizzas, one Diavola and second with white sauce. As a commercial place, outstanding pizza. Nice atmosphere, Italian live music and cook. Funny feeling to be in Italian atmosphere, but in a old finnish country house... Definetly will come back! Thou next time...we will eat there to enjoy the feeling.More

Just had the most wonderful pizza cooked in a wood oven. Amazing how good something can taste with just a few ingredients. I highly recommend the pizza here.!

Coffee House Laurentius is located in a very old red building next to the Church of St. Lawrence. This location has historic importance because the Turku-Vyborg road (the King's Road) and the Helsinki-Hämeenlinna road passed here. The cafe has an Italian influence. The chef is...Italian. Lunch is served from Tuesday to Friday (10:30-14) and Saturdays (11-14). Also, there is a Sunday brunch (12-15). And of course, you can buy specialty coffees with delicious pastries. They sell also home-made ice cream. We just enjoyed some prosecco while waiting for the church to open at noon. The service was friendly.More

This Italian spot in the little village just outside the airport is truly a gem. A buffet style brunch as well as at counter ordering of simple, tasty meals and charming ambience of a historic home. The family who runs the establishment are absolutely lovely....This is less than 20 minute Uber from the airport and within 2 mins walking of a gothic church and a more modern church to visit... easy to do on a 4-5 hour layover! Definitely recommend- we are so pleased to have stumbled upon it!More
