Pinella is unique. A contemporary restaurant and bar set within a historic building in the heart of Turku, Pinella seamlessly blends ancient and modern to create a superb, athmospheric riverside venue for drinks, dining and private parties. The restaurant's famous terraces have been imaginatively restored and provide a memorable setting for alfresco entertainment from May to September.
