Good Italian restaurant in the hearth of Helsinki

Perfect Italian restaurant, stylish interior, nice atmosphere, smiling service and good food. We ate fresh codfish and it was perfect. And it cost only 15€. We will come back.

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

I was looking for a steakhouse just across the street that was closed, so I decided to take a look of the Gastone's menu. It was perfect, the food, atmosphere and service.

Stumbled upon Gastone by accident and wound up going back for more the next evening. Evening #1, split the ensalata verde to start and devoured every last morsel. Love a salad with goat cheese and pine nuts. For mains we got the pasta primavera (good, not great) and the grilled vegetables (also with goat cheese and insanely delicious). Washed it... More

Walked around Helsinki for ages not finding anywhere that wasn't full or trashy looking. On our last legs found this great place. The welcome was friendly, the service very fast. Had Carpaccio, very good. Had antipasto intending to share, as soon they realised the waitress brought more cutlery and an extra taster soup. Mains of lamb, steak and pasta were... More

We found this restaurant while looking for Ragu, which is closed on Sundays. We were not disappointed! The service was excellent, the waitress even swapped our foredrinks when we found out they had Aperol Spritz. We had salmon as a starter, rooster and lamb filet, and ended up with a Tiramisu. The ripasso was a perfect companion. No restaurant in... More

We've tasted the lamb and the speck pasta, both very good. They have a good and varied menu, a little expensive but worthy. The service is the best we found in Helsinki.

My friend and I were going out to eat, so we ended up at Gastone, which was the first time there. Best decision ever. The customer service was very, very professional and friendly not to mention the food! We had a four course dinner, and every meal was delicious and very pretty. The portions just were a little too big... More

The service in this restaurant is very good and they care for their loyal customers and somewhat know their preferences in advance. That causes a cozy mental atmosphere and feeling of being welcome to Gastone. The lamb as a main course was excellent and the meze kind of platter was so good. The pastrami for the dessert :) was a... More
