    The charred octopus and amberjack carpaccio were excellent. The seared tuna main dish was so fresh, sashimi-quality actually. The service was perfect. They have an extensive wine list, not just Tuscan wines but Pinot Noir from Alto Adige, which goes better with seafood dishes. I recommend this restaurant.

    Thank you! See you soon!

    Fine modern seafood delivered on plate with imaginative verve..but taste is what food is all about, & these people have a profound respect for quality & freshness ..together with great kitchen work, this is a welcome adjunct to traditionally oriented Tuscan trattoria/osteria food in Florence. Highly recommended too is the wine service ..sound & inspired advice perfectly pared with the food coffee your choice. It’s a brilliant combo..don’t miss it!

    Thank you!

    We had an amazing experience. Service was fantastic, we were sitting outside and it was getting chilly and a waiter brought me a hoodie to keep me warm. The food was great! Highly recommended to visit when you’re in Florence ❤️

    The attention to our customers is fundamental and logically also the quality of the food. We look forward to meeting you soon in Florence.

    We were a little late (oops!) so they called to make sure we were coming and still held a lovely, roomy table right by the window for us. The food was excellent as always and the head waiter knows his wines so well, it’s always a pleasure to discover some new vintages.

    Excellent service and food! Gastone was recommended by our VRBO owner and it did not disappoint. We started with oysters, yummy. My girlfriends had the grilled octopus with eggplant cream and I had the octopus salad for our mains, everything was outstanding. But the thing that put it over the top was the raw cheesecake with berries, there are no words for how delicious and fresh it was. Just sorry we shared and didn’t get our own. We will be going back.

    Some of the best seafood in Florence: try the taglierini neri and the fregola con sapore di mare. But everything is really good. The ricciola (amberjack), the Milanese . . . everything is good. Terrific selection of wines, especially whites from Campania and Sicily. The waitstaff is friendly and helpful, and if you need a wine recommendation, they will lead you to the right choice. I'm surprised a restaurant this good isn't crowded. It deserves to be.

    Thank you!

    Two of us had salads, one with Tuna and the other with Salmon. They were both spectacular with perfect dressings to accompany the fish, tender greens and quinoa. My wife had the Bronzino and it was cooked to perfection. Excellent Tarte Tatin and chocolate torte for dessert.

    None of the 4 of us thought our dinner was exception. Veal Milanese was dry and boring. Black rice balls nothing great. Wouldn’t return.

    Even if Gastone was an average restaurant, for it to be open for ten years in an area where there seems to be a place to dine everywhere you look is proof that it is doing something right. As Americans, we ate earlier (7:30 p.m.) than most Europeans, so my wife and I discounted Gastone wasn't crowded. The natives, we were told, would arrive later and May is the busiest month of the year. One of the co-owners is a wine sommelier and encouraged us to pair wines with our entrees. I must admit I am a confirmed believe that California produces the best in the world, especially whites, however, the one we enjoyed from San Gimignano came closest to matching a Napa Chardonnay. I also enjoyed a Bohemian Pilsner that was excellent. While seafood is more often associated with Italian cities closer to the sea, the quality of fish at Gastone was outstanding. The salmon, from Scandanavia, and the turbon with truffles, were prepared with attention to maintaining their freshness.

    The food in Florence is fabulous. That being said, when you are tired of pasta and huge steak this is the place. Excellent seafood. We had a big roasted sea bass for two. Waiter made great suggestion for wine. Pear tart for desert. This is a great place for something a little different but fantastic cuisine

    The restaurant is clean, modern and beautiful. A chalkboard sign says in Italian "we have the most beautiful customers in the world. The lines are crisp, the colour scheme is simple and there is clear attention to every detail from the bread containers to the furniture and napkins.

    This place was recommended by our hotel. It was wonderful. Our waiter was charming, spoke good English and was also the sommelier. He recommended a wine instead of Pinot Grigio that was really good. Two of our part of 4 had porcini risoto which was perfect. One had sea bass covered in chick pea floor and one a salmon dish. All were perfectly cooked and seasoned. This restaurant feels and looks more new world like you are in New York but the food is still very Much Italian. One if best meals and most fun meals we had in Italy ???????? and st a reasonable price.

    We were a party of 6 friends who tasted and shared a wide selction of delicies from the menu. It was all excellent - unbelievable flavors, premium ingredients and well balanced portion sizes! In addition, the service was really quick and attentive although we were dining at the prime time on a Friday evening. I will definately return to here!
