I had a very nice meal here on a Sunday night. The servers were very friendly. While all of my dishes and the service were very good, the food was a bit slow to arrive. I think this may have been a function of how busy they were. I had a 4 course fixed price menu that came to 52... More

I had a pasta for starter (main dish, which was reduced in size). It was nothing short of perfect! This was followed by the "dish of the day" - a 300 g. medium steak with risotto, which was also very good. My wife had veal for the main course and a chocolate cheese cake for dessert. She seemed happy as... More

This Italian food restaurant is located very near Esplanadi (very center of Helsinki). Restaurant is very nice and relax, food is good (pasta for sure is always a good choice) and service is friendly. Whole experience was very good.

We visited Gastone for a dinner during a small academic conference. We had a group of 10 (with a reservation). The restaurant had set up a pleasant table. Service throughout the dinner was attentive, and dishes came out fairly quickly even though the dining room was nearly full. Gastone is dedicated to high quality ingredients and that was discernible in... More

I had a very good dinner in Gastone consisting of a starter and a pasta. Everybody in my table enjoyed very much their meals. This is a restaurant where one can have a high quality Italian dinner with around 50 Euros. Restaurant was crowded on a Saturday evening. Service was friendly and helpful but little slow.

Had a table at the restaurant on a Monday. The place was very well visited which is always pleasent to see. The starters were very nice: Well proportioned, well seasoned and well prepared. Mains, however, were disappointing: A risotto somewhere between uncooked and very al dente with pieces of raw spring onion that took over the taste completely. My partner... More
