Popino is one of the oldest or maybe even the oldest restaurant still operating in Hämeenlinna. They are well known for their thin crust pizzas, which are always an excellent choice. Portions are usually big and the menu is extensive. Most main courses also include a salad buffet. The restaurant has an old pizzeria atmosphere. Service is good and friendly.... More

We ate here lunch with our 2 years old daughter. This was italian style restaurant. There is not much room between tables so I don't know how comfortable it is when it is fully booked. I understood that it is better to do table reservation if you go on rush time. Foods was delicious and there is own menu for... More

The menu is long. Most maincourses include a buffet salad starter. Here the selection was quite wide st the buffet - pasta, salad, vegies in many forms and shapes. The steaks were nice, the Medium steaken was almost welldone but Still juicy. Creme brulee with liquorize can be recommemded, icecream with homemade kinuski likewise

Really tasteless food. We've just been there and I've just had one of the most bad burgers ever. Tomato soup was apparently heated up and the lamb was kind of ok, but not worth 30 euros. Stay away.

Food is good and portions big enough. Really long mixed menu helps all friends/relatives to find something suitable to eat. We could even find something glutein and milk free by asking and it was tasty.

I thought Popino was okay, but nothing too special. Pretty wide selection of pizzas, steaks, hamburgers and pastas, so there's probably something for everyone, but the selection of drinks wasn't that great, especially beer-wise. However, the place is nicely decorated and at a very good location. Food was pretty good, service reasonably good too. Prices were pretty average. They also... More
