Bistecca alla Fiorentina was big & tasty, even without a garnish. Pasta al pomorodo was also delicious. Salty in a good way. Waiter was friendly and helpful. We would definitely come back here and recommend the place for others. Ciao!
We ate our first meal in Florence at Gusta Osteria. I had the ribolitta soup. It’s a dense vegetable soup thickened with bread and served with a swirl of olive oil on top. The ribolitta hit all the savory notes. It was satisfying and delicious....We’ve since gone back several times. That ribolitta is still as delicious as are other items from their menu. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed the meatball platter, the lasagna, and more. This is a casual, family-friendly place. And for those of us who eat dinner well before the locals, Gusta Osteria starts evening service at 6 pm.More
We were near the Boboli gardens with the kids (and Grandma and Grandpa) and everyone was hungry for dinner. My husband wanted steak Florentine, so we set off in search of a restaurant with something for everyone. We asked around with the locals we met...(we are chatty), and everyone pointed us to Gusta Osteria. They weren't wrong! We enjoyed excellent, friendly service and delicious food (our favorite in Florence). It was a surprisingly good value, as well. I highly recommend this restaurant and we will definitely return the next time we are in Florence.More
Very, very nice and cozy place.
Good pasta, risotto, desert and wine.
Home made food, perfectly done.
Staff is very warm and kind, all of them, including Mauricio, the owner witch is very helpful and a fine host.
If you want to finish perfectly satisfied,...ask for a pijama desert and grappa!
Grazzie from portuguese costumersMore
We ate here on a rainy night and the service was great. We told them we were in a hurry (Italian restaurants usually have pretty slow service) and they brought the food right away. They were fun and good humored, and the food was delicious....I recommend the risotto.More
But hardly special...
I liked the friendly welcome & the fact that I could get a great glass of very good wine cheaply with my light lunch ..I did NOT appreciate a menu that listed pasta w (seasonal !) truffles that proved subsequent to my...ordering them ..weren’t actually available!!! Grrr!
My reluctantly alternate selection of porcini( fresh!) risotto was ok ..but the lazy kitchen hadn’t cleaned them efficiently so there was a residual grittiness to the otherwise quite nicely achieved dish. Bad mark here.
I left feeling it was below par overall...maybe I was just unlucky?
However I think one can do better nearby.More
it was our first trip to Florence and we have eaten in a few places but this is the only place we have gone back to. The waitresses are friendly and made us feel welcome and the food was tasty homecooked. Will definitely come here...again if we return to FlorenceMore
it is nice osteria just around the corner of the busy square. sitting at tables outside are peaceful and calm. I think that for Florence prices are quite okay: first and second dish and some house vine paid around 30 euro.
