We went there for dinner by chance. The waitress didn't understand Finnish and English at all but she 'pretended' that she understands English. One friend ordered an extra plate of salad but she brought her two extra pieces of bread. The rest of us ordered pizzas which were literally the worst pizzas we have ever had, with cheap cheese on...

I visited this restaurant at lunchtime. I did not want anything from the lunch menu, but I could order from the full menu. I had the spaghetti with chicken pesto. It was all right but nothing special. The place was quite full at lunchtime, seems to be popular among people working nearby. The decor has scenes from antique Rome. The... More

The waiter (owner, I think) showed us to our table with a grunt, gave us menus and stood over us with a pencil and notepad. We asked him to come back in 2 minutes while we decided. He came back in 45 seconds. Food was ok. The restaurant was about to close. We knew this because, having brought us the... More

I stopped by Restaurant Nerone to have supper. Place was quiet, but waiters sang with the italian background music while they were working. It was nice and cosy :) The pizza was good and wine good decently priced.

The place is a bit worn off and as the others have stated, their service isn't all smiles, BUT when it came to alterations in dishes because of special diet (no tomato), everything was ok and to me that is more important in service than smiling and small talk. All of us had pasta. The food was ok - nothing... More

Doesn't look that impressive from outside. But once you get to taste the food (if you are lucky enough to get a table as the place is so busy at lunch time) you will love this place! Value for money and portions are huge!!! I recommend this!

Nerone was a pleasant surprise. I ate quite late, so had only light dinner, but food was excellent, and recommended wine was perfect match.

I used to think Nerone has the best pizzas in Helsinki....that was in the late 90's...The restaurant was nice with fancy wine glasses and good service. Everything is different now. I haven't eaten there in years, but decided to give it a try. The restaurant looks like a cheap take-away kebab/pizza-place....and the smell is similar too and it didn't help... More

I agree with the reviews saying that the waiter was, well, if not rude but not very welcoming or friendly either. Anyway the food was good (lasagne & Amorosa pizza) and prices are low compared to most Italian restaurants in Helsinki. This is not a fancy restaurant but good enough for lunch or dinner if you happen to be in... More
