Since visiting Italy last year, We've found it impossible to find an Italian restaurant that comes anywhere near the quality we had. Even anywhere that sold Gnocchi! However this small little gem ticked all the boxes!

Pizzas are authentic Italian, with genuine and fresh ingredients. The atmosphere is very intimate, the dining area is small with just 4-5 tables. Prices are slightly cheaper than the averahe Helsinki ones.

The restaurant is welcoming and the friendly gentleman host is promising. Unfortunately, the food was not fresh, the pasta was from the supermarket and the pizza ingredients were from cans. The food was not bad but definitely not worth the price.

In a city of excesses (prices) here back down to earth, with better value for money. While possibly not best pizzas in town, certainly lovely pizzas and pasta. The owner I suppose also very friendly , unassuming and this is refreshing. Very small dining area...More
