Popular hang out after work and during week ends. The Lamb-pasta is a legend in Turku and well worth a try. Also child friendly.

We went here for dinner with six people and had a nice evening with good food. The restaurant has good athmosphere and there were several vegetarian options with interesting taste combinations.

The perfect meal after a day of exploring - great ambiance, friendly staff and lots of locals eating as well. I absolutely enjoyed the chicken tortellini and my husband had the chicken wok/pad thai. Highly recommended!

We had dinner in Blanko and it was great. We had meals from their Sunday choices and everything we ordered was excellent. Staff is more than friendly and they were there for us without bothering us.

the over 200 years old Bassi building, Blanko is forced to close its doors
for the winter on October 16th, and Tintå for the rest of the year on
October 23rd.

We are truly sorry for the inconvenience and thank all our
customers for their patience. You are all warmly welcome once we open
