Central location, nice view to Esplanadi. Pizza Prosciutto was good. Good and friendly service. Reasonable price.

Vespa is located near the park of Esplanadi and shopping places like Stockmann. It is a good place to take some bier or a glass of wine not far from the city heart. If you are hungry it offer you good pizzas and other Italian food. Nothing special but you won't expect any more when you'll go there.

This restaurant needs to understand the meaning of service. I often order takeaway and this restaurant has become a joke in the office. They always have some excuse for turning me away from ordering. The kitchen is too busy, they have a pizza buffet or simply don't take phone orders anymore. It is a throwback to the 60s of looking... More

Great location but little effort when it comes to pleasing the customer. Food ingredients are good but some were forgotten. Not very ambitious menu or personnel. A bit pricey too.

I visited Vespa with some good friends. Hadn't been there for a very long time. We all had different pizzas and I've to say mine was really excellent. I got the impression that my friends also like their pizzas a lot. Good place for some casual eating.

This place has been around for a while so they must be doing something right. If,however, you are looking for a great pizza, Helsinki now has better places.

I came after getting off the "HOP ON-HOP OFF BUS" since it was convenient for me and 2 other guests. This should be stop number 16 on your tour map. The waiting marker is not too far off and a bus conveniently picks you up every half hour. In the meantime, the restaurant was serving lunch, it was a buffet... More

I trust other people's reviews however, I'm confused on this one. We showed up as a large group of kids and adults. They were very accommodating and honest. We were told from the start that there were only 2 staff working but they would try their best. The pizza was enjoyed by all the kids (12-13 years old). Large size,... More

Average food, and very slow service. Although there was not many customers, the food took ages. Waitress was friendly, but obviously new.
