Gusta Osteria is my absolute favorite restaurant in all of Florence. It is a very friendly atmosphere and by the end of my 4 months in Florence, the employees felt like friends! They knew exactly what we wanted and even knew our individual requests that we wanted. I highly recommend the cheese plate or the proscuitto and melon for an... More

We found Gusta Osteria by accident & it proved to be possibly the best thing that could have happened to us. We stayed in Florence for 4 nights & enjoyed our first night meal here so much - We decided to see how good other things on the menu were. Both of us agreed it served the best gnocchi we... More

We stopped here for a quick bite before going to the Opera around the corner at St Marks and were very impressed. The staff were friendly and helpful, answering all our questions about the food fully and courteously. The food was of very high standard. We shared a huge steak that was cooked to perfection and would expect to pay... More

My wife and I, and another couple of friends enjoyed a wonderful evening meal at this 'off-the-beaten-track' local Florentine style restaurant. Our ladies enjoyed some delicious vegetables while Jon-Ivar and I feasted on the speciality dish of Bistecca alla Fiorentina - the best T-Bone steak I have ever tasted! The wine, a 2011 Chianti Classico, Fonterutoli by Mazzei, which was... More

We've been here to cool with a spritz, good actually but personally I care more about the service, literally absent..very unfriendly and nose up! I'm Italian and the kindness it's a must in our culture. Go to the next one!!

This is a quaint and friendly stall at the market with the most amazing food. We had an eggplant pasta that was out of this world! Very affordable too.

We've been to Italy many times and have never found better food or service than this little place. I almost hate to tell everyone about it or it'll become too hard to get into but I also know that they deserve the praise. Love these guys! (Your Cleveland Friends!)

We had good luck in Florence, three of our top five meals happened here. This place started them off, with a lovely two hour lunch. We had beef Carpaccio and a truffle infused pasta dish, with a caprese salad to start and some vino, of course. I don't remember the details of the dishes now, I just remember loving it!... More

I was somewhat disenchanted by the long wait time upon arriving at the restaurant (about 60 minutes), but I stuck it out and waited with the two people who were joining me for dinner. It turned out to be one of the best decisions of our trip. The food was absurdly good, and the staff was very hospitable and personable.... More
