Best Italian in Helsinki. Always good food. Recommend to make a reservation, specially for Friday and Saturday evenings.

“My favorite Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Ristorante Gastone is a quite small restaurant downtown Helsinki. Their food is tasty, the place cozy and service friendly and fast. I have been dining there many many times and never been really disappointed. You should try their “Pasta del Mandarina” or “Risotto al funghi porcini”. They are very tasty and reasonably priced… You will love them. This is a popular place, so better make a table reservation on beforehand.

“You can always trust to get good food in Gastone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

We have visited this Italian style restaurants many times and have not once been disapointed.
The food is not very complicated "gourmé" food but always well made, fresh honest food. This is a place that has no need to advertice. If you visit it once you will for sure go again. It is also one of the few restaurants in Helsinki which is open for sunday lunces. We higly recommend.

“Good Servuice Excellent Dessert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

This was a good restaurant but would not rank in my favourites. The service is very good and friendly and the food was well cooked and well presented.

For a business restaurant it was very good - the starter and main course tasty but not exceptional - the real excitement was the dessert which was fabulous and compares very favourably with almost any dessert I have eaten!

A gathering gastronomic crescendo finishing with a superlative dessert!!

“A great surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

Arriving in Helsinki at 22.00 and in need of food. Recommended the Asian resturant next door Tiger but it was Closed early. Walked in at 22.20 two adults and two kids in two aged 13 and 8. Welcomed with open arms.

Ordered for the children of menu which was not a problem, fresh bread with oils for dipping while our pasta was prepared.

Super tasting food and great service from the young blonde waitress who's English was superb!

Would recommend fully and we will come back!
