We are sorry, but we have not found these disservices in our restaurant. We accept any kind of criticism when constructive and truthful but surely our staff is not incompetent and much less disinterested. Also we can not find his positive review of the first...More

Like Rome, there are multiple fine restaurants relatively close to each other in Florence so for Gastone to be in business for ten years says a lot. The quality of its seafood, not typical of Florentine restaurants, is what separates Gastone from others. I ordered...More

Thank you so much!

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

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, located 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 menu 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 menu 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.
