Had to take the dearly beloved one to Helsinki City on business, when she surprised me with a request and offer of lunch ON HER! As often happens there was some guidance into the selection of the restaurant: Somebody´s friend had been to Aito and gave a rather positive comment. When we arrived the place lloked a bit off, like... More

Food is really delicious: menu set was based on local seasonal products and it was fantastic! The restaurant is definitely suitable for couples and small groups. Also there was great and friendly staff that was ready to give all information on wine and food. Must visit!

Recommended by a colleague in our Helsinki office, my girlfriend & I thoroughly enjoyed this up-market but local feel family restaurant. We had cost concerns eating in a Nordic capital city but the 3 course daily set menu was excellent value and the food delicious - lamb tartare, grilled white fish then raspberry & chocolate dessert. Staff were friendly, helpful... More

This place was short of nothing. We went there on Saturday evening with my wife. I had managed to screw up with reservation but they still managed to get a table for us. I took a menu with 4 (surprise) courses. Wines were really suited for the food. All tasted brilliant, but the dessert rocked the evening. Liquirice and yoghurt... More

Me and my wife went to Aito to celebrate a special occasion. It was already a third visit for us, but Aito always gives a super positive feeling. We took the six course tasting menu, and wow: the combination of food and meticulously chosen wines - just suberb! This is a warm recommendation for all the foodies out there: genuine,... More

Very nice starter buffet with different veggies and fish. Three choices of main course, of which one was vegetarian. A couple of choices for dessert as well. Desserts were not so tasty (too dry cake), but main course and starter buffet were very nice. Sunday "brunch" had a good price for a three course meal in Helsinki. The restaurant is... More

What a lovely place this is, table reservation for dinner is a must. Tried out vege starter which was an absolute dissapointment. Main was moose which lacked taste. Desserts were great. I expected more but will give it a second chance for sure.

We opted for the daily menu that included three courses for 39 eur. We we're lucky to find out that the price-quality ratio was insanely good. Medium-sized portions, beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. Mostly classic dishes with a Nordic twist. The space fits dinner dates the best as it is very small, quiet and intimate. My only concern was... More

The word "Aito" in Finnish means genuine or real, but not special. This is a fair description of the food. Beetroot, unseasoned white fish and vegetable cakes are standard fare in Finland, but not what you would expect given the prices and small portions in Aito. The atmosphere is very nice, the service exceptional, and the wine list well chosen,... More
