I have visited this place on-off last 15 years. But this might be my last visit until future. The pizza was mostly burned and was so thin and wet that it was difficult to eat. Toilets reeked acid and vinegarish(?) so much that it was difficult to breathe in there. I really missed this place and will cherish the amazing... More

The pizza was disappointing for a number of reasons. First, the ingredients didn't seem quality. Second, the crust was very crunchy. Third, almost no cheese even by standards of an Italian pizza it was sauce and bread. Bottom line this pizza was crunchy crust with sauce and a few ingredients sprinkled on it.

If you woke up with a hangover and Victoria Beckham is not sleeping next to you, then I suggest you go here for a pizza and a beer. Great pizza, cheap beer and tinted windows. That's all I need on a Sunday

It can not be more local than this. Pizzas are very good, ask for the chili sauce with them. Cheap beer.

The myth. The legend. Couple simple things to remember. 1. It might be full. Wait. 2. Forget how the place looks. 3. Which ever pizza you order, ask the to but chili sauce and garlic (both free) = result amazing 4. III beer and IV beer the same price, order IV (stronger)

The place is locally famous for its pizzas, certainly the best cost/benefit ratio (under 10 euros) ! Innovative menu with several vegetarian options, so far I tried the spinach+artichoke, kebab+smetana and veggies+smetana. Locals know that tax class IV beer is same price as tax class III, but if ou want to try a true Finnish pre-dinner coctail go for Talon... More

This place has the best pizzas in Helsinki! Also cheap beer ;) Go check it out! People there might be drunk whenever you go there but they are harmless and local Finnish so they will leave you alone.
