“Good service great food”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The workers are friendly and professional. I would say slightly limited for food varieties but a lot of choices for wine. My wife ordered Pasta Gamberi as her dinner, she likes the taste. My Charcoal-grilled Local Rooster (Galletto ruspante) was delicious; the meat was juicy. It was impressive. In short, this is a good Italian restaurant in town. We were there for our early dinner, the restaurant was filled with many customers later. Thus, it is not a bad idea to make a table reservation before hand.

“Pasta great - decor boring”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

The previous reviews described Gastone as an elegant restaurant but to me it was very boring with decor brown walls and carpet drab table cloths. The waiter was on her first night and poured beer all over the table not a good start. Luckily the pasta arrived - perfect cooked and true Italian taste. Liver after was also delicious. Will return for the pasta as there are not many real Italian restaurants Helsinki.

“worth money”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Very friendly and professional staff. The decoration has not changed during it's existence, but that is only positive. Great variety of Italian cuisine and large variety of quality wines with reasonable price level.

“Best Italian in Helsinki...?”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Probably yes in this price category. Service was good; food ok, but not amazing or stunning. The full grilled whitefish was great - simple and tasty. Excellent choice if other fine dining places are already full-booked. But, I recommend that you are booking the table beforehand.

Nice and elegant. Good service. Always pleasure to have dinner here. I bring my customers here. Quiet enough for a conversation. Menu is simple and delightful.
