The area is close to Palazzo Pitti and it's in a student area square in front of Basilica di Santo Spirito. We had an older gentleman who may be the owner serve us and he was very friendly and funny. We got free bread which is unusual in most tourist parts! The pasta was very reasonably price less than €10... More

After reading the great reviews we were expecting something special. We had two paninis to take away. The food was perfectly fine but just nothing special. Mozzarella was served cold on the panini instead of melted and tomatoes a bit unripe. To be honest I have had much better paninis in the uk. Perhaps if we had ate in the... More

We dined there twice. Pasta was fresh, and was delicious. Also another time we had the foccaccias and they are to die for.

The five stars are for the whole dining experience not just the food. The location is perfect, service excellent and food ok. We ate dinner with three children and they could play in the square whilst we enjoyed dinner. The food was fine. Not remarkable but well cooked simple dishes. Thoroughly recommended for families.

Vado spesso al Gustapanino in piazza Santo Spirito. Atmosfera amichevole, cibo di qualità, servizio eccellente. Hanno mantenuto i livelli (se non meglio!!) dall'ultima mia visita!!! Molto consigliato anche per passare una bella cena in piazza nell'accogliente pedana. Ci tornerò sicuramente!!! Domenico ----- I go often to Gustapanino in Piazza Santo Spirito. There is a friendly atmosphere, good food, perfect service.... More

I can't say enough good things about Gusta Panino! It's my favorite spot in Florence. I love coming here for a casual lunch to get a great panino, and coming at night for a beautiful dinner. Their staff is awesome and it's such a great location in a beautiful piazza. I've lived in Florence on and off for 3 years... More

Definitely the best restaurant in Florence, Italy. The food is delicious, I have tried almost every item and have never been disappointed. The staff is also incredibly friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend visiting Gustapanino for both the yummy paninis and perfect restaurant environment! Add this to your list of places to go when in Florence!!

We stumbled upon this place while wandering Florence on our first night there. It's in Piazza Santa Spirito which is tucked away from most of the tourist areas. It seemed like a local hangout with many al fresco dining options. We were seated outside by the owner who was very nice and helpful. He knew we were on our honeymoon... More

Our waiter Andrea was extremely personable and attentive, with a great sense of humor. The food is Fresh, authentic and flavorful, all with a great value. The owner Pasquale goes out of his way to talk to every table. He makes you feel as though you have known him for years. We are only here in Florence for 3 days... More

We went to Gusta Panino on recommendation for a lunch in Florence - we were not disappointed! It is a bistro style restaurant in the corner of a beautiful piazza, at the foot of the church. We were lucky to get a table as the place had a real buzz about it and it was a perfect day for dining... More
