I have etane bruschetta first, which is really good, but rather small for the price. I then took the pizza alla rucola, which is good (not extraordinary). The place is nice and real Italian personnel.

Nice little restaurant near Kamppi center and mall. If you like italian food, visit this place! Only minus is the air-conditioning - fumes from the kitchen disturbe a little bit. But anyhow - nice athmosphere!

Small, but very cosy Italian restaurant. Good location, reasonable prices. Friendly service. Italian personnel speaking Finnish :) ate pizza and pasta - we were very satisfied. I recommend to try at least once.

Our experience here was amazing from start to finish. The restaurant was lovely and comfortable, creating a cosy, quiet atmosphere. This atmosphere was only enhanced by the lovely staff. Service was impeccable throughout our dinner and we didn't experience any issues with anything. The food was delicious, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. We ordered pasta and risotto, which did not... More

I tried "scalloppa" pork and it was overdone and as soft as a table practically. Not sure how you can cook and serve something like that, maybe only if you don't care see the customers ever again.

After reading reviews that people use this place a lot for pickup, I expected less from the the general atmosphere. We were pleasantly surprised, the place was very comfy. Food was a disappointment. We had lasagne and spaghetti with prawns, and they were both tasteless. The sauce in the dishes was similar, possibly canned stuff. Wouldn't be surprised the lasagna... More

I have lived and worked in Italy for years, and therefore, whenever I do not want to have any disappointments (by testing new Italian places) I go to Zio Pepe. Here I know that I get real Italian food as the staff is Italian. This place and food in its simplicity is what Italian food is at its best! I... More

Popped in at closing time and was still served. The pizza was perfect in true Italian style in a simple but modern decor.
