“Great unique burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

We always have trouble finding good place to eat :( but La Famiglia turned out to be a very good choice for lunch. We decided to have the Unique Burgers, I also really fancied the mushroom soup they had so had that too. I had Greek Burger and my husband had Pulled Pork Burger. Both were amazingly good, and very filling. Really good place to eat! Enjoy :)

“Not the perfect Italian experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014

Good location (center of town), specious (two floors with ample sitting), poor service, average food.

So, me and my colleagues booked a table and got a decent place to sit. We were served bread as we sat but our waitress was a blunder. She added salt and pepper to the olive oil (never seen that before) and left it there. No vinegar was served, we had to ask for it. I had a glass of red wine (Chianti 2013) and fancied having a risotto. Unfortunately, they do just one type (white fish), so I tried it. Was ok, nothing great. Presentation was decent. An unusual part is they serve burgers with fries, which I could see lot been ordered. For dessert, I had a tiramisu - was fresh, but over loaded with cocoa-powder which actually choked me once. Espresso was good.

Overall an Ok experience.

“Waiting waiting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

We got bored waiting for a table to be cleaned for us. No staff at the bar, where we were supposed to wait for the table. Used to be OK.

“Trattoria”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

More Italian style than most Italian restaurants usually at Finland. I liked athmosphere, food and after all pricing. Place is at cuty center and just few steps from Espa park where is good to take walk before or after meal.

“pizza”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

We order 2 Pizza´s. They were horrible, under cooked, Tomato sauce in pizza was sweet!!! wt...??
(not cheap price for pizza 15 euro.) Pizza should be able to eat with the hand, but this pizza was like a water.

We ate less than a half pizza both.

But it tells lot of restaurant that advertise it self as a Italian restaurant, but in the menu have american, finnish and italian food. Identity is lost??



Never again
