I was here with wife and daughter for late lunch. I wanted to try their pasta with lamb but my wife ordered it and I ate pasta with beef and pesto. It was very good, maybe little bit to much oil but very tasty. And pasta with lamb sirloin was great. Daughter ate minute steak with fries and she was... More

Very cosy place innice athmosphere. I took king prawns for starter which was well prepared and tasty. Decided to go with lamb Pasta for main course and it was a tasty surprise - very good and fairly big portion.

A selection of innovative pasta dishes. Lamb tagliatelli is very popular, wok dishes are good, too. The main courses also mix intenational ingrediences. Many of the portitions are quite large, and heavy, so you need to be hungry to eat through starter - main course - desert. The restaurant is very busy during weekends, so book a table ahead.

The service is a bit more rigid than the restaurant next door but it is less pricy and the food is equally good. I had the vege wok: one of the best I ever had, I highly recommend it. If you're in the area, it's totally worth it and it should be even more enjoyable in the summer.

Nice modern place with a lot of young people working and dining there. Service was excellent - swift and friendly. The food was stunning! I had the highly recommended pasta-lamb dish and it was great. I definitely recommend this place for good food against reasonable prices.

We were 6 of us having dinner without making a reservation and the only table was outside, which was cosy however it was a bit noisy because the restaurant is just beside a busy street so it was a bit difficult to talk. But the food was really good, spicy and nice to look at. I had the coconut lime... More

We have had several times dinner here with my wife and never have been disappointed. My wife liked the lamb pasta a lot and I can recommend the sirloin hamburger. Very nice place for casual dinner with friends!

Really tasty food, one of the best restaurants I have eaten at in Finland. I had the lamb and I really recommend it. Everything on the plate was excellent. The place itself is really relaxed which is just to my liking, but the service could have been a little bit better. Seemed like the waiters were kind of distant, not... More

We had an outstanding lunch today in Ravintola Blanko. The set lunch menu changes daily and has four choices including a vegetarian option. We opted for the flat steak with chips and salad and the chicken with cheddar quesadilla. The sweet of blueberry pie and cream with a coffee was also included. The total bill was just over 19 euros... More

Blanko's lamb pasta is just perfect. The dish you could eat over and over again. I took Malbec with pasta, that rich wine works well with the lamb and garlic.
