“Fortright Italian Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

Stepped in by accident after long business meeting with colleagues, with no reservation and clue what place is this…Place looked cozy and crowded, people were talkative as eating - it sounded great. Service was absolutely convenient, with a smile…what is NOT typical in Finland. We had some special request for our orders, they were all completed. Even place was quite full, food came fast, at it was surprisingly tasty. Location is good, one can find this place easily. I can highly recommend!!

“My favorite Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Ristorante Gastone is a quite small restaurant downtown Helsinki. Their food is tasty, the place cozy and service friendly and fast. I have been dining there many many times and never been really disappointed. You should try their “Pasta del Mandarina” or “Risotto al funghi porcini”. They are very tasty and reasonably priced… You will love them. This is a popular place, so better make a table reservation on beforehand.

“You can always trust to get good food in Gastone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

We have visited this Italian style restaurants many times and have not once been disapointed.
The food is not very complicated "gourmé" food but always well made, fresh honest food. This is a place that has no need to advertice. If you visit it once you will for sure go again. It is also one of the few restaurants in Helsinki which is open for sunday lunces. We higly recommend.
