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.

Due to Popino’s well reviewed reputation, our expectations were high. We had reserved a table one day prior to our six-o’clock dinner. However the table reserved for us was right next to the toilet facilities and therefore, we had the “pleasure” to eat in a...bad smell. Also, the table was really tight and placed in a corner. Not so good first impression. The pizza was great though. And it was served within quite fast time. The personnel was really nice but they didn’t come to offer us the bill after we had finished but instead we had to ask for it from the counter.More

Very nice and attentive service and a good variety of options. Food was tasty and fresh. A table was found without reservation on a busy day, and there was no delay in getting the food served.

We went on 7th April 2022 as a family of 4 - our daughter is vegetarian and our son is a fussy eater. We found the menu to have loads of options for all of us. I had the Santorini chicken, my husband the crispy...chicken, our daughter the avocado pasta (minus chilli and lime) and our son the build your own kids’ pizza. All of the meals were delicious. The service was really friendly and well-timed. The wine was also lovely! Not a cheap meal but I do think it was well worth the money for a lovely, filling meal. With tip, it was €130 for 4 mains, 2 wines and 2 soft drinks. We hadn’t booked as it was only our 2nd night in Finland and we were just popping into Hameenlinna for a few hours but we went at around 5pm and were seated straightaway. I imagine at peak times though, you really need to book. I’d highly recommend PopinoMore

The restaurant seems to be very popular and menu looks great. Some of the dishes that I saw at the other tables, looked really good, but not all and mine was very plane looking and unfortunately way oversalted. Restaurant was full at the time and...clearly there was not enough staff, but they vere friendly anyway.More

We had Bella Maria and Gigolo - around 16 e each. In terms of volume I guess there was a lot of value for money, massive amount of toppings. I’d like the traditional Italian style more, with superb tomato sauce, good cheese and only moderate...amount of other components.More

Went here for a Sunday lunch and were not disappointed. Both the hamburger and pizza were very tasty and service was friendly. A good choice in Hämeenlinna.

Nice place thus looking a bit 80’s but service okay, could be better. A la carte menu short traditional Finnish. Ate snails, could be better but main course chicken was great. Free salad for appetizer

I expected the regular Finnish standard pizza- but this was special . Savoury at it's luscious best, just that right amount of gently burned cheesy bits on the edges, excellent fresh vegetables. I hope they keep the same chef or recipe.

Very cozy restaurant with a vast menu and very efficient and friendly service. We were quite a big group but we all got our food at the same time and everyone seemed to enjoy their meal, no matter whether it was pizza, pasta, burger, fish,...chicken or something else. Well done!More

We found the Popino restaurant quite easily in the centre of Hameenlinna, there had been many others to choose from and this one seemed quite good. The waitress met us at the door and led us to our table. It was around mid-day and so...about three quarters full. The waitress quickly took our orders and showed us the salad table. The salad table was very good, a good choice of different foods and sources. I had a pizza and my wife had the chicken korma, the pizza was ok, but my wife won this time around as hers looked very good, next time I will choose the chicken too. The service was very quick. I noticed that this restaurant is very popular with famililes, there was a number of children and I noticed that their plates looked very healthy with lots of vegtables and salad. I am left with the feeling that on the whole, the food was ok, but nothing really special, just a well run establishment.More

I looked at many different places to eat for dinner on TA and saw Popino and so I gave it a try, and outstanding is just the beginning they killed it. A 10 on service the place was busy and received a table was no...issues. Ordered a beer and a 10 on pizza too was so so good to every bite, will stop here again and will tell my friend to make this there stop too. Thank you the everyone you have a great place to enjoyMore

One of Hämeenlinna's best restaurants. Food is delicious and service is friendly. They tell patiently about ingredients and are happy to moderate portions for your special needs. They have good selection in salad table where you can choose what you want to eat. Prices are...mostly between 20-30euros. If you want go there in popular day, i recommend to make a reservation.More
