Description: 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.

The antipasto platters of meat and cheese, and home-made breads were excellent. Then came the main courses - everyone was happy with their choices, but especially those that had the seared tuna, grilled octopus and steak.

My wife, daughter, granddaughter and I all visited for lunch yesterday. It's a place we go regularly when we are in Florence. We have never been disappointed. I had, for the first time, the fish and chips. Not what I would normally eat but I thought it looked interesting. What a fantastic dish. Various kinds of fish including shrimp which is unique for that plate. The others had pasta and a salad which were incredible. We had a lovely bottle of Spumante which highlighted the meal.
I highly recommend Gastone!

As much as I adore Tuscan food sometimes it can be a bit heavy and redundant. For lunch I was looking to go somewhere that offered something different. The restaurant we planned to visit was closed for renovations, so we walked a few meters and came upon Gastone.

The lunch menu in the window had me hooked as they advertised "big salads" with around 10 different options. They all sounded so good it was difficult to choose. (We decided on the Gastone salad). We also tried the grilled tuna and thoroughly enjoyed both plates.

I was not planning on ordering a dessert, but the fruit and Greek yogurt with honey caught my eye.

It was all very delicious and a bit lighter than the typical Tuscan food. I look forward to going back for lunch.
