Was there in September for a 4 course special
The food was good. Nothing to complain, on the contrary:-)
Andthe staff was verynice and friendly.
The place is hidden, you don't pass it by by accident...
The only thing I wasn't too peased about was that the distance to next table is a bit small... not so easy to carry private conversation....
ANd I was actually still hungry after the dinner :-(

Before visiting the House of Music in Helsinki we had a lovely dinner in Aito; a small place with a very homely atmosphere. The service was relaxed and friendly and also very efficient. We ate a three course meal from the menu: some cured horse with beans and cottage cheese to start with - excellent ! As main courses we chose pork and whitefish. All portions were immaculate; the pork side was especially delicious.
The considerate waitress suggested us to have some Finnish cheeses in between and we followed the hint. Finally it was time for a dessert: white chocolate with cloudberries and blueberries with rye crumble. Followed by a couple cups of fresh coffee they made this meal a perfect one.
Being a fine dining place this restaurant has a nice and easy-going feeling. We will definitely be back some day!

This small excellent restaurant is in Töölö, in Helsinki city. Area is very nice and apartments are quite expensive in that area.

We visit there with our family (all adults). There were menu choice of 35 euros with 4 courses. It was very good and worth of money.
Staff was very friendly and took into account our one very allergic person very good.

I strongly recommend this restaurant

I have visited this restaurant on many occasions and the food has always been very good. The quality of the waiting staff can vary a lot, so it is unfortunately a bit of a hit and miss with who happens to be working your table. Some are excellent, some of the best in Helsinki, but many are just average or slightly above. When you are lucky to have one of the best serving you, the dining experience really is elevated to another level, with a lot of knowledge about the wines and foods being shared by the enthusiastic and very friendly waiter.

The menu changes quite often so a new visit is always sure to guarantee a new experience. The atmosphere is cosy and relaxed. Very reasonable prices for the food but, as one can expect in Finland, alcohol costs an arm and a leg.

Overall, I can very much recommend this restaurant if you wish to enjoy wonderful Finnish and Nordic ingredients and flavours true to the season but prepared in a somewhat more fine dining fashion.

Superb, great, delicious, a vouyage through a secret set menu. With wine pairing. Not cheap. But worth the 20 minutes walk from our hotel in the snow!
Thanks to the staff at Aito for making it such a great experience.
Will return
