Had a Tuesday dinner with a business friend. The restaurant is in a mall. Do not be afraid. Just step in. We had cprese, mushroom soup, chicken and risotto. All well prepared and tasty. Might go again.

Their linguine alla carbonara is divine. I return for it again and again. The best pasta carbonara I have ever had. The escargots are also delicious. Also, the price level and the portion size are ok.

Reasonably priced Italian restaurant with good pizzas and fast service. At lunch you pay on the desk beforehand so the process of eating out is made easy. If you can't destroy the whole pizza at once, you'll be able to take the rest with you in a doggy bag. Convenient.

The menu is in Italian only. SO apparently you should know some Italian before going here. Because how else could someone with coeliac disease order a huge plate with pasta. And when you apologize and try to get something else instead you should pay for both dishes (the one you can't eat, and the one you actually can). It was... More

This restaurant servers medium-quality food. It's ok, but not so good that you want to return. The service was okay.

A good place for a solid pizza or pasta, the pasta is mostly not "al dente" so that could need some improvement. Otherwise quite good.

Best food in espoo. I don't understand some of the people who wrote rubbish about the food. They don't know about food.

Have been there now for five times. Like it a lot better than other Sello restaurants. My favourite dish is the oven baked Pollo Carbonara. Staff seems to be mostly Italian. Service is not perfect but it is ok and has gotten better as they recognize our faces.There is also a small play corner for kids which is important for... More

Very good pasta at Sello shopping centre. Towards the end of lunch time, fast delivery, although some stuff like bread/sallad/water had run out, but I got them when asked for. Ambience is ok, with ecoing from hard surfaces. Less nice is the darkness of the place. OK place for lunch though. Especially when in need for pasta before a (half)... More
