Amazing restaurant! Great location. The food, especially the steak, is excellent. Really enjoyed the house wine. The customer service is excellent and the owner Pasquale really makes the experience of dining unforgettable. Every time I visit Florence and want to eat out this is the first place that comes to mind.

We had a wonderful time at this place. The owner Pasquale order for us since we told him we want a Florentine steak He brought out appetizers first that were delicious. He selected a few wines that went well with the steak. It was outstanding. Great place to enjoy a good dinner with friends.

A nice non-descript cafe a few minutes walk from the Pitti Palace. There were a few nice little cafes in this area but this cafe is on a street that is quieter than being on the main drag across from Pitti. Usual cafe fare as well; we had antipasto, chicken liver pate, and the pecorino and walnut salad.

For the second night in a row, Trip Advisor has given us a winner! Gusts Osteria was just around the corner from our Air BnB and a welcome change from the throngs of tourist infested restaurant across the Arno. We were so impressed with the food! We started with an appetizer of Gorgonzola with walnuts and honey (delicious and a... More

This was our best meal in Florence. There was something for every member of the family, including a vegetarian and a very picky eater. By all means order the taglatelle with meat sauce. I'm still thinking about it.

Decent food, quick service and no special fuss about anything. Not a gourmet restaurant but far from a fast food joint. Accepts card only if you buy food for 30€ or more.

Gusta osteria was our place of choice for dinner throughout our stay in Florence for a month. It has amazing food, the kindest staff, and a great atmosphere in the heart of Florence. It is not too touristy, but they can still speak English and offer you incredible service. I could not recommend a place in Florence more, it is... More

We ate here twice as the service and the food was really good. We had the Steak Florentine which was a good cut and prepared very well. Other times we had Pasta and the Zuppa Cozze (mussels). Our food was already fresh and delicious. You didn't need a reservation which is typical in Florence. The woman server was always checking... More

Had dinner at Gusto Osteria as a walk-in and were fortunate to get one of the few tables free for 4. We were delighted with the menu and the quality of the cooking. We shared a cold meat appetiser to start, a variety of very enjoyable mains and ended by sharing 2 tiramisu. Highly recommend the restaurant for good food,... More

We found ourselves in Piazza Santo Spirito at 19:00 looking for a restaurant. All the ones on the square were booked, but this one had one table left. We were a little leary about why this had availability, but were pleasantly surprised. The steak florentine was delicious and all the other meals were excellent. The staff were perfect. Whenever we... More
