About the restaurant Gastone

Looking for something different than the classic T bone steak and pappa al pomodoro? Look no further than Gastone! In a peaceful and cozy atmosphere, in a woody and perfectly climatised room, loKcated in the authentic area of Santa Croce, just a few steps away from the big crowd of the main routes, you have found the typical place where florentines go to have dinner or lunch. Sporting a menù mixing cleverly fish and meat with the typical tuscan flavours and a very good wine list, a stop at Gastone makes up for an experience not to be missed!
The restaurant is perfect for both lunch and dinner; while for lunch the menù is a little simpler and faster, having dinner at the Gastone is a good choice whether you want to celebrate your stay in Florence or just have a nice and relaxed dinner.
Particular attention go to the freshness of the raw materials, therefore menu changes along with the season; throughout the year whether you prefer vegetables, fish or meat you will always end finding something that suit your taste.
Gluten free proposals are available for each course, from starters to main meat or fish dishes and are clearly highlighted in the menu.

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!

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 ❤️

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.

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.
