Business lunch visit - clean, bright city centre restaurant on the Esplanade in Helsinki with a small, but nicely diverse lunch menu including small dishes (i.e. pasta bolognese, goat cheese salad) and more substantial ones, as well as a complete menu. Service was super - very fast from order to beautifully presented food. Lovely house-made ice cream for dessert and... More

Visited on our last night in Finland before leaving back to home. The service was great! There were very few children's options on the menu, so they asked what we wanted- off menu! The bread was quite good as was the appetizer, the prawns. But it was quite expensive for only 4 prawns, but delicious none the less. The off... More

Eating on a Sunday evening is not easy, we went on TripAdviser recommendations and tried Gastone. We had a king prawn starter which was beautiful as was the bread but our main courses I had zucchini and my husband the steak were a huge disappointment... The steak was well cooked but not a great cut and served with an overly... More

We had a great evening at Gastone. Food was average and over priced. Service was excellent and the athmosphere was very nice.

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

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
