Very nice food, location and service

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

I had the menu II with the wine selection. A little expensive but foid was great and the waiter took his time to explain about each wine that he served with each dish. I recommend this place.

Food ok, great service, pricey probably not best value for money. This is not the setting for your romantic dinner.

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). Also the food tasted pretty much like the Italian food should taste - that was second positive surprise. The wines are expensive as those are... More

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
