The first surprise was the kind service that we faced when entering the restaurant. Certainly it is pretty much depending on the person that serves you as always in Finland (the variation might be huge).

Was impressed by the warm and friendly atmosphere as well as the food. There was a young couple who had taken their baby to the restaurant, who was no trouble at all and this was perfectly acceptable to the other diners. Food and wine were delicious and expertly served, thoroughly recommended

We visited this restaurant with my friends on a Saturday evening and we had to book the table in advance, as there would not have been any chance of getting the table without a booking. In my opinion, everything went really well on our visit. The food was good (especially the beetroot and yellow root appetizer) and there a comprehensive... More

This family-friendly place offers delicious food for a reasonable price right in downtown Helsinki. A nordic take on traditional Italian foods with really exceptional soups and tasty desserts.

I think been eating there about hundred times ever since Gastone opened it doors and never got disappointed. When ever celebrating special occasions as birthdays or bringing foreign business customers for a dinner out I always pick Gastone over any other restaurant in Helsinki. It`s fancy and elegant but has still very pleasent cozy ambience. Of course sometimes when it`s... More

The place we had originally planned for dinner was closed for repairs so we called and made last minute reservations for here. The fact that on a saturday we could get a table for four people at 7 should have been the first sign. After we were seated the waitress showed up to tell us the kitchen was down and... More
