Very crowded place, excellent location, good food and very honest management: my food did not arrive, so after 30 minutes, I complained and as a compensation, I was offered the wine (and anyone having been in Finland knows how expensive if can be) and the starter.

The staff didn't mention anything about having to wait quite a while, and the place wasn't even full when we arrived. In the end we waited around an hour. The food isn't really worth the price.

Post work pizza, 25 wait then arrives cool. Surrounded on other tables by uncollected empty glasses. Customer service not a natural phenomena here. Pizza very mediocre....

Typical chain restaurant. Food below average, long waiting times. One of our orders were taken to wrong table and the youngest diner had to wait 10 min after others started eating. Food was semi hot, had to eat too fast before it got cold. You don't expect anything when you enter in one of these places and still get very... More

Very helpful staff, but pricey and food was ordinary at best. Ordered pizza which was a bit undercooked and soggy in the middle.

We visited this place on Saturday, 19.11.16., and i must confess that experience was terrible - we had to wait for main dishes for 1 hour (60 minutes)! Our waitress could not provide any reasonable expalnation and all she was interested in was - Do you want to add a tip? Quality of food when we finally got our mains... More

A huuuge restaurant, very well located, but nothing special. The stuff is corect but not very friendly. The food is disapointed, far from italian touch. A lot of place, good for big family.

Cons: Very slow service in general, this restaurant is not rigged for a full house a Friday evening. We are four persons and two finish the main course before the ramaining two arrives. Not nice. Pros: No complains on the food, it was all good. The staff is friendly and did give us some compensation (economical) for the bad timing... More

They need to sort out getting seated. You wait by a stand that says please wait here to be seated and are ignored by the serving staff. After 10 minutes I was shown to a table. At busy times they need a staff member to seat people. I noticed several clients walked out. It was just poor management. Once seated... More
