Dined here twice and was extremely disappointed with the service. Service was very busy with excessive waiting, drinks were not offered when we arrived and it was very difficult to get any attention from the waiters, who seemed to enjoy chit-chatting with each other more...than looking after the guests. The worst experience was when on the second night the waiter didn't bring our drinks and cutlery with the main course for which we had to wait for very long; we complained to the manager but we felt the complaint wasn't taken seriously. The menu consists of generic tourist-Italian dishes which are so-so if you don't expect anything special, but prices are high for the quality, probably because there is no competition in the area, forcing hotel guests to dine in the one restaurant. Restaurant gets very noisy when full.More

Good service and nice place to eat. Make reservation if you want to eat. Small vine list. Staff was very nice but some would think they were little too overwhelming if you don't like that type person.

Me and my mom both require special diet. At first sight menu looked a bit slight, but when we asked from the waiter, he said that pretty much everything can be ordered gluten free. I had an excellent pasta as main course and mom took...vegetarian burger. We also enjoyed nice starters and desserts. Second evening they had another cook in shift and food still was good, but not excellent.More

Thet offer a coupé of different pizza (slightly to short in the oven) a good risotto Nd some main course which I didn’t taste now. The service is friendly and has a good overview! It’s not Italien but it’s ok!

Delicious food and excellent service. Especially the ingredients were fresh & pizzas were best I've had for long time. Strong recommendation👍

Staying at the hotel where this restaurant is. Pizzas are nice but selection is limited to 4 types. I had the 4 seasons, bit of everything on it. Fancied a fish based pizza so asked the waiter if he minded asking the chef if this...would be possible. Waiter instantly dismissed my request and didn’t even ask the chef. How hard can it be?? But that’s my only criticism to be fair. Lady waitresses are very polite. Male one aren’t. Venture away from pizza or pasta then you need to save up a couple of weeks before you come. Steak is around £35More

Idea of having an Italian restaurant in Karelia is a bit odd. However, tasty food and friendly service. Decent pricing. Only really awkward part is having the view to the spa: watching people bathing while eating feels unpleasant.
