After lots of places offering meat it was good to find a place with lovely inexpensive salad options. Had lovely bread..Pacheri pasta with squid and broccoli and a pinenut and pecorino salad. Staff were friendly and this feels like a nice local cosy place for lunch. Other people had the bruschetta and I felt envious as these were enormous and... More

Half of the room was empty. Weasked the waiter for a table (for 3). We asked the owner who looked at us from head to to with didain and said "we're full".

This is a great osteria with a gorgeous view of the Basilica of Santo Spirito and the piazza. The service is good and friendly, the food delicious, the prices very reasonable.

Although we actually came for a restaurant closeby, we found that one closed. Quite by coincidence we ended up at Gusta Osteria. But what a pleasant surprise! Excellent food, wine and beautifully prepared dishes. Cosy and authentic atmosphere. Very nearly priced too. Recommended!

The steak was served a bit too rare, but this was taken care of well (which is almost impossible.) The potatoes were perfect, the staff was pleasant. The place is cozy and charming. I was very impressed.

It's a small place where you can eat good classical Italian food. The owner welcomed us with a cup of sparkling wine, good surprise!

Small little restaurant but with a real cozy feel. We had a long, late lunch on a rainy Saturday afternoon and it was a lovely way to while away a few hours. Good quality pasta and the house red was inexpensive but good quality. All the other diners were Italians rather than tourists which is always a good sign.

I had missed lunch one day and I was walking back to my hotel. It was not late like 6 pm and I noticed Gusta Osteria was not closed as are many restaurants in Florence. That was very fortuitous since I found the food to be very good the value and the service as well were superb. I will be... More

We were heading for Gusta Pizza but it was not open yet yet and we found this place just down the street. Not sure if they are connected. Pasta , local red wine with good service. Small but nice place. easy to find from Plazzo Pitti.
