Service was a little bit rude and unfriendly but this was completely compensated by the delicious food. We had our 4yr old with us which was clearly not in favor by the host but nevertheless the chili beef pasta and the salmon pasta were splendid. If you can get past the limited friendliness then it's definitely worth having a taste... More

For many years the best Italian in Helsinki. Impressive vine (only Italian) and grappa list. Classical dishes such as Fegato&polenta but also innovatve new dishes.

Situated near the Esplanadi, Il Gastone has been blessed by a central location. Food was classic Italian cuisine, leaning a tad towards a fine dining type of affair but staying traditional and a little more affordable. Veal was excellent, pasta with salmon good. Selection of wines good. A bit crowded, but still atmospheric. Service was proficient but unremarkable. A excellent... More

My starter was so delicious: Fantasie di finocchio (caramelized fennel, fennel pureé, fennel crackers, fennel salad and raspberry vinaigrette), highly recommended! Grilled veal chop was also good as a main course, but the portion was quite big. Staff was nice and friendly. They didn't have some wines that were on the wine list, which was a bit unfortunate. Remember to... More

Yesterday had menu 1 and 2 with my wife. Pasta was pretty good as second but otherwise food was not special. Furthermore, service disappointed badly. Forgetting to ask how meat should be cooked, waiting 45 min for the main course and forgetting to even ask if we were alright during that time, bringing wines totally out of sync, tired "sorry,...

Went to Gastone with a friend with no high hopes for some reason. The service was friendly and relaxed and the food was fab! We couldn't help but complement the chef after each dish (we enjoyed Menu 1). Perfect in every way =))

Good spot for a bite of Italian fare in Helsinki at a reasonable price. Friendly service and sensible menu and wine list.
