Food, service and wines are excellent. Atmosphere is sofisticated in a good way.

We had the set menu 1, which was €50. It was 4 courses, and it was very good. The vibe of the restaurant is great with excellent staff and a varied choice at the bar. Very good.

This time our team of three ladies and four gentlemen tried dinner in the restaurant Gastone. The service was good, atmosphere relaxed and food was good. Of Gastone, one should mention the winelist. An attractive choice by a rather reasonable price.

This is our go-to Italian restaurant in Helsinki. It's a grown-up restaurant. It's not a trattoria, it's not trendy, but it's got delicious and heartwarming food. This visit, on a cold and gloomy winter day, I ordered the hearty Mandriano, and when I asked how it was, the waitress said, "it's been on the menu for 15 years, so pretty... More

I was solo and the restaurant is suitable for such dining, especially if you get a table by the windows. I liked the food and wine. The staff was to not especially intersted in me. Price was to high.

There aren't many good Italian restaurants in Helsinki these days but Gastone is definitely one the best ones. Gastone has been around for a while now and I can happily say after several visits during the past years that the quality of food is usually very good. They make the pasta themselves and it shows. Appetizers are sometimes a little... More

We were there on a Monday evening. Quite few guets but it had a positive effect on the service - which was super fast! I took the lamb and moccasauce with risotto. Very good flavours with and very well prepared lamb. The risotto was like a dream. Can definitely recommend this place! Interior was non-exciting though.

Being a local in Helsinki, I have eaten here many times, it has never failed me. Ate there with my fiancee last Saturday. It was packed, but still service was good, and food came on time, and was as expected. We had the 4-course menu, which had great choices. The selected wines were good, but no surprises there. I loved... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in all of Helsinki. I have been its customer for years and still like to treat myself with its 4-course dinner once in awhile (around 48 EUR). It has never been a disappointment for me nor my companion. I just learned to know that an Italian acquaintance of mine (originally from Naples but... More

Gastone has for a few years already been my favorite Italian restaurant in Helsinki, and after last wednesday's dinner I can restate this. We had a cozy dinner with my dinner companion, starting with prossecco, carpaccio and shrimpsoup for starters, followed by porcini pasta for my companion and gamberi pasta for myself with nice Montepulciano red. Elegant, yet.a cozy place,... More
