This Italian-style coffee shop is actually under the S-Trade Group, a café, where you can take advantage of the chain's customer card.You get a piece of chocolate with a special coffee. I ordered a cappuccino. They brought that to me with the designed cup looking like squeezed in plastic cup. With this joke the size of the cup gets smaller, which means that you get the expensive coffee in a small mug.

Fratelli

Reviewed By Sanna2888

This place get most of its customers when the nearby bars close at 2am - 4am. During those times this small pizzeria is always crowded and lines are long. The pizzas are a bit more expensive than in some other nearby places and not very good. Kebabs are also rather poor. This place is also popular with students because they get a slight discount during daytime.

La Torrefazione

La Torrefazione is a third wave coffee shop chain; by knowing our supply chain we can guarantee the quality and taste of our coffees. All of our baristas have taken a barista exam, they both know how to make coffee but also the story behind each of our co

Reviewed By carlv888

Found La Torrefazione "by accident" strolling into the mall from the winter cold late February and was pleasantly surprised. In a small space, baristas have all the equipment to make the latest and greatest in coffee and tea. The menu has options for every taste, and even adds practically sugar free smoothies made with whole fat yogurt.I went here for after-breakfast coffee, afternoon coffee and lunch and at all times was treated with great enthusiasm and professionalism. The staff genuinely cares about the quality of their product. My sandwich was very fresh and tasted delicious. I ordinarily don't get smoothies in a coffee bar but I had to try considering the menu - and to prepare for the inevitable moment that my wife wasn't up for coffee/tea. In one word, my smoothie was excellent - and as I mentioned, not sweet at all. Don't let the mall location fool you. This is real coffee, real tea, real everything. High tables, low tables, inside and "mall" seating. Highly recommended.

Ristorante Rosso

Rosso is Finland's own Italian restaurant and is the place for spending happy moments together. We serve antipasti as well as both Roman and Neapolitan pizzas – not to mention modern pasta classics, delicious stakes, wonderful Italian wines and delicious

Reviewed By Anssi P

Rosso is a chain restaurant that in the case of Oulu is part of the restaurant scene of the new shopping centre Valkea. The list is seemingly similar and also familiar all over Finland, including pizza and pasta alternatives, as well as more heavy stuff. I had a busy lunch with a smoked salmon pasta which was fine but nothing special, actually rather boring. It is obvious that the Rosso chain needs acutely some innovations to their lists and individual meals. That would be the best quarantee in Restaurant markets.

Toscana

Reviewed By Anssi P

Toscana is nicely situated near the railway station but unfortunately quite far away from city centre. Unfortunately, because many people miss this excellent restaurant. Their service is suberb, waiters are real experts and very polite. Owners bring very good Italian wines to the restaurant. Menu is long enough so that everybody can find a good choice for him or herself. We had a small family party and shared at first a very good antipasti plate. My wife took then a vegetarian menu and I had pasta with mussels and chili as the first meal and tuna steak as the main course. All foods were excellent. They both looked and tasted good, similarly the wine. I can very warmly recommend this restaurant to locals and visitors.

Reviewed By Hiidenuhma

Very popular restaurant with quality food. Lots of pizzas but if you want to have gluten free you need to order it in advance preferably on previous day or at latest on the same morning. Also lots of other main course possibilities.We had picanha as gluten free food, it was lovely. Pian pizza was good and the burger toi. The burger was almost well done but it was okay.
