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

We had a reservation at a Florence home that did not work out. The owner made us a reservation at Gusta Osteria. After traveling for 6 days with my parents, my 79 year old father who is very picky and complains about everything, I thought oh no here we go! We walked over, mind u him complaining every step.....however, when... More

This is a tourist trap! Do not go there. The atmosphere is lovely and service is friendly, but the food is just plain bad. Nothing was horrible, but everything was tasteless and boring.

It was our last night in Firenze and we needed a restaurant near our hotel before we hopped the train back to Rome. I am very glad we chose Gusta Osteria. Ben Aflleck, or at least his twin, greeted us at the door and was a gracious host and waiter. The food was excellent and the wine was even better.... More

Not outstanding and rather expensive, especially when compared to the low prices of Gustapanino and Gusta Pizza, however if you are staying Otrarno and are just keen to have a meal inside with fairly consistent service then it shall serve you well.
