Bad experiense, nice service but poor/ terrible food. Risotto was not cooked properly. Pizza could have been good if they mixed the toppings. Do not recomend this place. Expensive too. 👎

Great pizzas in Leonardo. Lunch is fine, some portions are quite small. Salads just OK. Good place to grab a pizza, while waiting a train.

Quite popular lunch restaurant in the heart of Helsinki. Good variety of lunch dishes - pastas, risotto, salads and pizzas.

I came here at the busy lunchtime with plenty of customers, but to order and to get dish at the table still went very fast. Ok lunch and friendly staff.

Nice place near hotel, but food was dissappointment. Expected more. Wine and beer lists were good. Only few metres away from central railway statuon.

This restaurant is directly opposite the huge, imposing train station. We chose it for convenience as we were staying at the hotel nearby and we were tired and cold (it was snowing too which was nice). The dishes we chose were all good with no one complaining. The beers were extremely expensive but this is something you will find all... More

Waiter came to pick up our plates asking: was that not good? I said it did not taste anything. She took the plate and said:... More

A Pasta and pizza restaurant, a bit expensive for this category but food was good. Not the best pizza or pasta I had but a good one. They serve alcohol. Some tables at the windows towards the street to look out, and some tables outside the restaurant, but inside the galleria.

The waiter did not write our order down, and as a result, my companion did not get drinks she ordered. Myself, I did not receive the side order I had asked for. After... More

I have been there twice. Both times we have tried pizza's and they are really good. The one exotic is the one called Finlandia, topped with reindeer meat. I also like to one called "Isle.... (i can not remember the rest)", topped with mussels, calamary, shrimps and garlic.
