Acceptable Food, Nice Setting, Friendly Service

Finding a decently-priced restaurant with good food is always a challenge in Florence. (Perhaps it's just me.) Here, the service is very friendly, the setting is quaint, and the food's not bad, although nothing memorable. I had the ravioli with radicchio--a nice combination. The portion was... read more

This very small restaurant on the Santo Spirito square looks appealing, and its name makes a slightly misleading reference to the excellent pizzeria just around the corner. Because turning stodgy Tuscan dishes into memorable meals is not as easy a task as baking a pizza. Gusta Osteria comes out okay in the end, but my experience wasn't memorable either way.... More

As other many times, we didnt plan to have lunch in this osteria, we were just passing by santo spirito and were hungry. Food is good: we had lasagna , grilled vegetable with roasted potatoes. Good chianti to drink. People are very nice, price is not bad at all. It is always a good choice.

We asked the local taxi to take us to Gusta Pizza but he dropped us off at Gusta Osteria instead. This turned out to be a fortunate mistake. Gusta Osteria is a charming little restaurant with maybe 10 tables inside and another 3 or 4 outside on the corner of the road. The food is absolutely amazing. I ordered the... More

The host Juan was amazing. He provided complimentary Prosecco while we waited for our table. The food was amazing - we ate there twice during our two week stay in Florence. He had a wonderful rapport with all the guests - whether young or old, single or family, he greeted everyone and made sure their experience was special. I highly... More

On my last day in Florence I was determined to eat lunch here despite being told 'come back in an hour'. I did and the food and service were worth it. They deserve their certificate of excellence for great food from Tuscany. The Italians were there in droves. Rosso della casa was good and my desert (gorgonzola, walnuts and honey)... More

It's a tiny place so consider making a resi. The food, wine, service, dessert....amazing! We showed up without a resi, they gave us a glass of bubbles while we waited. I had a Paparadelle and my husband had the gnocchi, followed by the steak and stewed lamb. Both were amazingly out of this world. We finished with their chocolate cake.... More

Gusta Osteria is a great little restaurant in Santo Spirito. When it's warm, you have the option of dining inside or out, either of which is an experience! It is usually very busy, so make sure you get there before you are very hungry! But if you have to wait they are very accommodating and will give you some prosecco... More

We just arrived in Florence and were looking for a nice place to fill our stomaches after our journey. We were warmed up by delicious lasagna. Just what we needed in this cold weather. Staff was quite friendly.
