This was one of the best vegan pizza experiences in Finland. The dough is not as goos as in a couple of other places, but it is not bad (it usually is in Finland). The vegan option does not have vegan cheese, and I am happy about that. Instead it had smoked tofu, which worked surprisingly well, okay asparagus, wonderful dried olive crumb and a stroke of genius – romesco sauce!
They also had primitivo red wine, one of my favourites.
Entering this restaurant on a Wednesday evening it was almost empty. A waiter was dusting the tables, another stood behind the bar. We were instructed (yes, that's the word) to take menus from the bar. We took a table and signalled to the waiter. "Orders at the bar" he replied. At the bar the lady (with tattoos and piercings) was quite slow at opening a bottle of wine for someone else. No-one in the staff paid any attention to us. This place had such bad karma and so supercilious that we decided to leave.
Piece 'n' Love is basically a bar with pizza: the menu is short and simple. But the pizza is very good, the atmosphere is pleasant and low-key, and I felt perfectly comfortable going there as a woman alone on a Friday evening. I had the white pizza with avocado and chili sauce.
Went here for early dinner with a couple of friends who had been here before. The pizzas cost 15 - 18 euros each and they all sound very tasty when you look at the menu. The real thing is, however, kind of a disappointment. The pizzas look extremely good, there is lot's of filling, they are edible, but not nearly as good as you'd expect from a 16 eur pizza. I had the Pancetta and it mostly tasted like salt and vinegar. My companion had the one with cheese and he thought the same. I got to taste a piece of my friend's snail pizza, which was a bit better, but still not worth the money according to me.
If you want a great pizza in Helsinki, go somewhere else. If you, for some reason, really really want to try what this place has to offer, don't have the cheese or pancetta ones but rather try one of those with seafood.
