Pizza Place
$$
“Putte's Bar and Pizza, i.e. Putte, has become one of the city's classic pizza bars. Putte is also a family-friendly mix of a bar and restaurant, and the kitchen is open exceptionally late. The downstairs space, The Cellar, hosts evenings from club nights to concerts and other gatherings. Another great reason to check out Putte's is its art. The owner, Antto Melasniemi, has collected high-quality Finnish contemporary art over the years, which he hangs on the walls of his restaurant. ”
