The location is very convenient in the center of Helsinki, close to Stockman department store. I had pizza that was quite good, but especially the bottom lacked taste. The service was friendly, but disoriented every now and then.

It was weekday, but restaurant was still quite full and I wondered why. After the menu I was not wondering anymore. The food quality is excellent and for average customer this pricey but friendly place is very good place to eat. I ate American menu and it was excellent. Antipasti was quite good, although roasted tomatoes were not that perfect.... More

Pizza was good, service ok. This is quite a crowded and noisy place - and had to wait for the food quite long.

Very crowded place, excellent location, good food and very honest management: my food did not arrive, so after 30 minutes, I complained and as a compensation, I was offered the wine (and anyone having been in Finland knows how expensive if can be) and the starter.

The staff didn't mention anything about having to wait quite a while, and the place wasn't even full when we arrived. In the end we waited around an hour. The food isn't really worth the price.

Post work pizza, 25 wait then arrives cool. Surrounded on other tables by uncollected empty glasses. Customer service not a natural phenomena here. Pizza very mediocre....

Typical chain restaurant. Food below average, long waiting times. One of our orders were taken to wrong table and the youngest diner had to wait 10 min after others started eating. Food was semi hot, had to eat too fast before it got cold. You don't expect anything when you enter in one of these places and still get very... More

Very helpful staff, but pricey and food was ordinary at best. Ordered pizza which was a bit undercooked and soggy in the middle.

We visited this place on Saturday, 19.11.16., and i must confess that experience was terrible - we had to wait for main dishes for 1 hour (60 minutes)! Our waitress could not provide any reasonable expalnation and all she was interested in was - Do you want to add a tip? Quality of food when we finally got our mains... More
