Maybe one of the best service experience in Finland. Food was great, maybe not amazing. Really good wine list.

Been here few times now and haven't let us down! The service is attentive, polite but yet very relaxed. The place is pleasant and atmosphere is very cosy. They were also very flexible and helpful with my friend's special diet (milk free). Highly recommending this place!

Visited this restaurant first time. And what a dinner! Every piece of the dinner (you can choose a 3 or 4 course dinner, I took 3) was beautiful and tasty. The suggested wines were very good as well. And they had a specialty I never has before -white port wine. Wonderful with dessert! I had for stater forest mushrooms in... More

Already third time in this Aito (genuine) restaurant so I can tell this is good, reasonable priced and well managed small restaurant. I'll visit again. Food really tastes good, is fresh and nicely served. Price is about 25 euros, so not very cheap but very good, I recomend

We have had the idea to go already for a longer time, but we always prioritized some other place over Aito, big mistake... :) The menu is quite small, as is the place as well, but that´s only a good thing. I´m sure there is something for everyone available anyway. We went for the four course surprise menu with matching... More

A great restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. Tables were quite close to each other but this was not an issue, still felt surprisingly private. The staff was attentive and chatted with us when we made conversation. We had the six course menu with the wine package. The food was exquisite and filling, using the seasons ingredients.

Very tasty surprise menu with excellent, and surprising, wine selection served professionally with very good feeling. We visited this first with my wife and another time with business friends and all have been entranced. They told having a new menu every three months, so remain waiting for the next visit in couple of months.

At lunch time at Aito you can choose either the "daily lunch" or the lunch menu. I chose the main course from the lunch menu, minced moose, for 16.50 euros. The daily lunch would have been pike a la Lindström for 11.50. All the lunch options include also a soup and a coffee. The waitress was really really friendly and... More

In Finland they loves their autumn and winter vegetables.In this case, it becomes a little odd for a foreign guest who found it a little difficult to match the delicate pike perch with fairly unsophisticated root vegetables.No salt and pepper on the table, which did not prove necessary, the salt is a common ingredient in Finnish cuisine. With the current... More

Pretty small and cozy place was fully booked which tells it is a good place. And this really was! Surprise menu was surprisingly tasteful and wine package crowned the symphony of delicious dinner. Staff were talkative and helpful. The waiter really attended. He presented wines carefully as well as the chef presented his cookings.

Thank Bipolar
