The place is a bit difficult to find if you are not local. But it is worth searching. If I want to have excellent noodle food, this is the place where I go. There are cheaper places but not the same quality as Rodolfo. My favorite in "tatti" noodles and most likely better than you can find in Italy.

Lovely Italian restaurant with excellent food and wine. I ordered calf with the air-dried ham and vegetables, and it was really tasty and great! There was plenty of people but the atmosphere was relaxed and the waiters did not hurry us, we had time to have our dinner and dessert in peace,and I had the best panna cotta I have... More

My friend's pizza was really good but my salmon pasta wasn't very good. It tasted super salty, so couldn't finish my meal. The interior of this place is really old fashioned and fully equipped, so the waiters had hard time to move around. Service was nice but a bit slow.

We were with colleges having a dinner in one of first Italian restaurants in Helsinki. Athmosphere is nice, some italian music played on background. Restaurant is founded at 1970 by a former finnish sailorman who was a chef on board and wanted to give people same gourmet experiences that he had when he visiting several countries all over the world....

This is an ordinary neighbourhood restaurant in Helsinki. I have visited this place few times over the years and this year we had yet another nice evening here. The staff was very friendly and the food from the chefs spelcial list was very good, a bit more authentic than some of the other italian restaurants in Helsinki.

Pieni paikka, hyvä olla pöytävaraus ainakin lauantaisin. Pidimme ruuista, erityisesti suppilovahverokeitosta ja risotosta. Small restaurant, good to have table reservation. We all liked our disches, especially soup made of trumpet-shaped chanterelles and risotto of the day.

Rodolfo is a classic Italian place in Helsinki, offering a variety of pastas and pizzas for a reasonable-ish price. However, the food was not that special during our visit, e.g. the salmon pasta was a bit too greasy and the pizza had so much tomato sauce that the crust was way too wet. Point for the Tiramisu though. Service was... More

First of all, it is the oldest Italian in the town. The owners cherrish the roots by serving nothing but quality on a plate. Personally I appreciate the most the staff who are able to deliver every night.

I have been a loyal customer to this place for years. The level of service and food have been steadily decreasing. And now it is the first restaurant where I have been offered dried tortellini instead of fresh once. Starters were ok, but the main course was total rubbish. You just don't offer dried tortellini in a restaurant unless judgement... More
