Restaurant Panini

Panini is Italian at heart, Finnish by seasons – and a decades-long favourite of the Turku citizens. At the edge of Vähätori market, in the shade of a peaceful courtyard, you can enjoy a lovely Italian family dinner in a charmingly sociable atmosphere.

Our menu includes delightful antipasti, paninos and salads – not forgetting pizza, pasta and risotto, the cornerstones of Italian cuisine. From our wine list, you can select a suitable Italian wine to accompany your food or to enjoy with friends. Our recently renewed dining hall is roomy and comfortable and well-suited also for large parties.

Restaurant Panini serves its customers from lunchtime to late in the evening.
