I visited here by change, and liked very much of the friendliness when getting in. The place does not look very lucrative outside, but when you get in, you do not want to get out. Cozy, authentic Italian restaurant where the focus is in the FOOD and SERVICE. When looking for good place with friends, who likes Italian food, this... More

Have visited this restaurant many times and it's always great. If you want excellent italian food, authentic service and trattoria feel this is your place. Restaurant is quite small so remember to make reservation especially weekends.

Cozy restaurant run by (apparently) Italian owners. Mid-price range (approx. 13€ per Pizza) but you get a free 1 liter table water. Very fresh and tasty pizza! We chose the "Feta" and "Piccantissima" pizza and they were very good! I highly recommend the place for everyone looking for an authentic Italian place!

Quite small and simply decorated an authentic Italian restaurant. Do not give a little rugged interior fool you off. The staff was friendly even though we came just before closing time of kitchen. Pizza was very tasty and delicious, large enough and affordable. Peroni (Italian beer) was our choice for food beverage

Been here several times and never been disappointed. Great Italian food at affordable prices, friendly service. The restaurant is quite small so booking is a good idea.

This small Italian restaurant is a bit worned out but food is excellent. Big portions with moderate cost. One definately would not leave this restaurant feeling hungry. Staff is friendly and helpful. Very popular among local people and would recommend booking table beforehand.

A lovely surprise recommended by a friend. The deco is like back in the 70-80's but pizza are great. Only tried the pizzas which were like back in Italy, just the right amount of good-quality toppings and thin base. I will surely go back and try their Sicilian speciality pasta alls norma too.

It seemed like your avarage pizzeria from the outside, but once you´re in, you step in to Italy! Workers were like in an Italian restaurant. Made me miss Rome! :D Pizza was really good! One of the best pizzas i´ve had in ages here in Finland! The only minus comes from the wine we took. It was a bad choice... More
