Not typical Italian food. I had a dish with salmon/shrimp/mussels/crayfish. The crayfish had a smoky flavor and was delicious. The salmon cooked perfectly. Mussels were a little grainy. The atmosphere was nice and quiet. Good place to catch up with friends.

My wife and I visited this restaurant in January 2017. We had starters, main course, dessert and a bottle of wine. The food was really good (though not extraordinary) but we really appreciated the service we got. It was perhaps a bit on the slower side, but we weren't in a hurry and didn't really pay attention to the time.When... More

Went there for dinner and not overly impressed. We had three courses and a bottle of wine for 133 Euros so not really cheap. The first 2 courses were quite tasty but very small. My steak was average compared with what we have back home I Australia. The service was quite ordinary and the time between courses was far too... More

We have been to this place for a business dinner and we tried the dome antipasti and pasta. The food is ok, nothing special and the pasta was over cooked for Italian taste. The wine list is ok and the service was nice.

I'll need to come back here. I only had antipasti and risotto and would like to take the full dinner experience some day. Carpaccio was great. It's one of the dishes that tells the quality of the place and they got a good set here. My wife's scallop portion was bit small but very tasty. Her pasta (Pasta Del Mandriano)... More

I really like italian food and this restuarant really surprised me. They had somewhat nordic touch to the dishes but the original idea was well followe. My antipasti as smoked scallops were excellent and the chargrilled veal liver very gently cooked and delicous. The courses were big enough to skip primi. Their chocolate salami was also nice but nothing too... More

We had a dinner with our friends on Saturday evening at Ristorante Gastone, a place that is nicely located near the city-center, behind the Esplanadi Park. Restaurant is plain, pretty open space. Since it was more or less full of groups, possibly having their Christmas Parties (?), the noise level emerged rapidly. We ordered a menu of three meals (a... More

I expected more from this restaurant. Since we were there, menu was much better as this time. It was strict. Starters were nothing special and there was only four main course to choose. If you don't like liver or you're not a vegetarian, only choice is choose deer or arctic salmon. I choose a salmon as a starter and it... More

Restaurant location is few steps from Esplanadi park in Hilsinki, ambient & interior design is nice. Food ingredients are fresh, taste is nice, prices are moderate compared to same grade restaurants in Helsinki. when you come to menu variety, it is not so rich, just very few plates of each category. Don't get fooled of food photos posted on internet... More

We joined twenty or so locals at this restaurant on a Sunday night. The vibe was good; service consistent and food delicious. Prices were slightly higher than elsewhere that we tried in Helsinki but as it was a Sunday there were less options open.
