We opted for the daily menu that included three courses for 39 eur. We we're lucky to find out that the price-quality ratio was insanely good. Medium-sized portions, beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. Mostly classic dishes with a Nordic twist. The space fits dinner dates the best as it is very small, quiet and intimate. My only concern was... More

The word "Aito" in Finnish means genuine or real, but not special. This is a fair description of the food. Beetroot, unseasoned white fish and vegetable cakes are standard fare in Finland, but not what you would expect given the prices and small portions in Aito. The atmosphere is very nice, the service exceptional, and the wine list well chosen,... More

The restaurant can seat less than 40 people. I went there with colleagues, but I think it can also be a good place for a romantic dinner. We had a great meal there. I recommend the deer - it was tender and well presented. The brownie dessert was also yummy! The servings were ok, but could be a bit small... More

Maybe one of the best service experience in Finland. Food was great, maybe not amazing. Really good wine list.

Been here few times now and haven't let us down! The service is attentive, polite but yet very relaxed. The place is pleasant and atmosphere is very cosy. They were also very flexible and helpful with my friend's special diet (milk free). Highly recommending this place!

Visited this restaurant first time. And what a dinner! Every piece of the dinner (you can choose a 3 or 4 course dinner, I took 3) was beautiful and tasty. The suggested wines were very good as well. And they had a specialty I never has before -white port wine. Wonderful with dessert! I had for stater forest mushrooms in... More

Already third time in this Aito (genuine) restaurant so I can tell this is good, reasonable priced and well managed small restaurant. I'll visit again. Food really tastes good, is fresh and nicely served. Price is about 25 euros, so not very cheap but very good, I recomend

We have had the idea to go already for a longer time, but we always prioritized some other place over Aito, big mistake... :) The menu is quite small, as is the place as well, but that´s only a good thing. I´m sure there is something for everyone available anyway. We went for the four course surprise menu with matching... More

A great restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. Tables were quite close to each other but this was not an issue, still felt surprisingly private. The staff was attentive and chatted with us when we made conversation. We had the six course menu with the wine package. The food was exquisite and filling, using the seasons ingredients.

Very tasty surprise menu with excellent, and surprising, wine selection served professionally with very good feeling. We visited this first with my wife and another time with business friends and all have been entranced. They told having a new menu every three months, so remain waiting for the next visit in couple of months.
