service was wonderful. Maybe because it was late but i had the attention of two staff members. Veal livers were just melting in my mouth. Crisp interesting side salad Velvety Panna Cotta... They even suggested i nip out the back to join the revellers as live music was about to start and is avoid the main entry charge. Highly recommended.

Raffaello used to be my favorite restaurant in Helsinki with the famous seafood pasta. After the change of an ownership and crew, the quality lowered to the finnish ABC petrolstation level. So sad.

The interior is very cosy. The service was fast. I have ordered white grilled fish. When the plate arrived I was happy with my choice of the restaurant. However, after the first bite I was so disappointed. The fish was not fresh and had taste of fridge. I needed some wine afterwards to change the bad taste afterwards.

Hmmmm! It seems, from the recent reviews, that we were luckier than most in this restaurant! We were seated quickly and with a smile! English was a LITTLE problem....but my Finnish is zilch....so I say nothing more on that subject! We enjoyed a tasty pasta each, one beer and 2 glasses of wine....which was very good....although expensive....but, all alcohol is... More

The place is kind of nice but food was mediocre at best. I had salmon soup (which they have entitled as a "classic"). The price was 16€, and for that price the 3 or 4 small chunks of salmon in the soup was not enough. Maybe I was just unlucky...

Service need to be restructed. Customers are served in random order. This place used to be nice, but now its a total disaster. Will not return to this place again.

After being told by two members of staff that they will seat us "in a minute" and then watching them trundle off to do something else I should have stuck by my threat of leaving but with two hungry children we eventually were seated. Food order taken and after twice reminding them for some bread were served glasses of tap... More

Make sure you carry your Pepto Bismol with you. You will need half a bottle, after Raffaello's pizza soaked in oil and pesto sauce
