Delicious food, professional staff. We had deer and chicken with appropriate sideorders and shared a tiramisu. With no alcoholic beverages the bill amounted in a little under 70 e. Taking the whole menu with the 45 e-ish price tag could be considered a bargain in this place.

On a short break with family (grown ups) we booked this as it was a Sunday night and a lot of restaurants were closed, it was close to our hotel and the menu looked good. We all agreed it was one of the best meals we had so far in Finland. The staff were good and even recommended a better... More

Happened upon this restaurant exploring the city. Very glad we did. Excellent food - good variety. House wine was lovely - changed regularly so well worth trying what's on offer. Service was excellent. Highly recommended. And very central.

We visited Gastone for a dinner on a quite quit tuesday night in a middle of a holiday season. We had nice window table. We had a perfect three course very-Italian dinner and chose a bottle of Rivetto 2009 Barolo. Both food and wine were really good, service was attentive, and the entire experience really positive. Their menu was really... More

On the Tom Smith Value Index, this restaurant scores 9+. Value = Quality ( Kitchen, front of house and decor) divided by $$$. This is a well run Italian restaurant in Helsinki with a great front of house style matched by an innovative kitchen. Set Menu 1 and 2 were equally well presented with 4 courses at around 50 €...

The food is always so good in this place. The service functions well and they cater gluten free with no problems. The kind of tapas plate was different from the past but still very tasty, a bit 'manly' with sausages etc. These folks know their wines and can definitely recommend something that pairs with your food nicely. Definitely a place... More

The risotto was perfect. The steak was perfect. The service was perfect. The restaurant was full when we came, and it is also pretty small. Our table was very close to open wardrobe. But we really enjoyed our dinner.
