This place is cool.:.
If you are after sharing plates and small bites this place is for you.
Dishes were well presented and on point ..
You scribble your order on a mini black board and pass it to the wait staff..
A meal for 2 with 4 plates each with a glass of wine came up to €51...
The food was yum! Except for the sticky ribs which was quite salty ..Dessert of mini Bombe = small doughnuts with ginger cream
Cool place and hip music and place to hang and have a good meal!

This was one of our best restaurant experiences in Italy. It's a fun place and the food was unique and excellent! It's all small plates you can share. Portions are not large, but everything we ordered we loved!

We wanted something a little lighter and we're impressed with Gesto, cleaver ideas and presentation and we all thought the food was great and made a change from traditional Italian fare.

We went to this charming little tapas inspired Italian restaurant on a recommendation from our hotel and had such a great time. It has a hipster like ambiance and decor and the staff made a lot of effort to explain the menu to us in english and we really appreciated all the time they took. They even came after each tapas to ask us how it was. The crowd at the resto was more youngish and their prices were very reasonnable (around 4-6 euros per tapas). The presentation was really cute and the taste was there. We started with their old fashioned cocktail and junniper gin. We recommend you try them + their sushi tacos, gnocchetti with fava beans, samosa (vegetables fried triangular cigars with tzaziki sauce) and the bacala. They had a lot of other tasty dishes but alas we were only 2. For dessert the frutti di bosco was something I've never had in my life for dessert and I'm glad we tried it. The gestomaxibon is their housemade ice cream sandwich which was good too. It was really a fun night and the service was impeccable. If you're staying 2 nights+ in Florence and want to try something different, delicious, unique and fun go to Gesto!

Drank prosecco the first night then went for food the second time. Good value and great atmosphere. Unusual menu more like a tapas style but tasty nonetheless. Good value and well worth visiting.
