Chose this place as my partner wanted a pizza. It was early evening and there were a few people in there. Waitress was friendly and sat us down. We ordered a Peach Juice, a local Craft Beer and 2 Pizzas. The local beer was absolutely...lovely, one of the nicest beers I’ve tried. My partner agreed so later during the meal we ordered 2 more. The pizzas were good. Cooked to perfection. We had the bolognese pizza and margherita pizza with extra mushrooms. We both loved them. The table next to us had an issue, due to religious beliefs they couldn’t eat pork. But they didn’t make them server aware of this at the time of ordering. The food came and it had pork. Although the family didn’t make too much of a fuss the servers looked mortified and were offering freebies and trying to make amends. I work in the industry and was impressed at how well they handled the whole situation. It wasn’t their fault and should have been told. I heard the server say they were new and possibly had just taken over. This place was lovely and certainly recommend it!More

A sitdown pizza dinner on a hot evening. Service ok, slowish, cool beer and decent pizza. Did the trick for us!

We sat down to eat, then whipped the phones to check out Trip Advisor. Bad move! I can agree with quite a few other reviewers...terrible service, zero atmosphere and expensive (but very good) wine. But you know what? The food was excellent, which was unexpected....Penne arrabiata and linguine with grilled vegetables. The pizzas that whizzed past looked excellent, cooked in the pizza oven. A Margherita Pizza was just Eur8. We had a very good meal for two, with drinks for Eur34. Don’t overlook this place!More

We ordered two pizzas, they were quick, hot, tasty and good quality and for this part of a capital city the price was fair!

It was pouring with rain and we were in need of Pizza! We found Gelsomino and were a little concerned that although open, there were no customer in the restaurant. We need not have worried, we were warmly welcomed, well looked after and fed the...nicest pizzas we’ve had in a long time. The prices, ( less than €15 for a good size ) were very reasonable. The best advert for this place is pictured below.More

We were in Tallinn for the day on a cruise and wanted a quick lunch. This restaurant was the first place we came across so we went in. We were the only people in but we were quickly seated and given menus in English. The...selection of pizzas and pasta was great and the pizzas were approx 14in but nice and thin. The service was excellent (but there wasn’t anyone else to serve!) I couldn’t fault it, we had a very good meal at a reasonable price, just round the corner from the Old Town Square.More

Thanks for a great evening in this wonderful restaurant. The most delicious pizza what you could have. Perfect, I would say. Even better than in Italy. And our evening was complemented by an excellent wine. Thank you!

Takuuvarma pettymys! Tarjoilija oli tosi töykeä, lautasliinat saimme pyydettäessä, tämäkö italialaista?!! This will be a disappointment for sure! Very unpolite waiter, napkins got only when asked and the restaurant was not even full. Do not go !

Unprepossessing but quite pleasant inside. My wife’s salmon tagliatelle was hot and tasty and my seafood tagliatelle likewise, with plenty of seafood and a good mix of mussels, squid, prawns and even baby octopus. Portions were reasonable and service likewise, though drinks seemed a little...expensive. Definitely worth considering however.More

We had lunch at their outside tables on a very hot Sunday. Shady spot with some breeze! Th location is just around the corner from the busiest spot, so less crowded but close (everything is pretty close in Tallinn Old Town). Service was somewhat slow...and unsmiling, however once we managed to get the food the pizza was delicious and pasta carbonara was good. Te sauce would have benefited from a tastier bacon (this appeared to be ham) but the sauce compnent was nice and for once the pasta was al dente! Nothing spectacular, but fulfilled our lunch needs.More
