Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

friendly and knowledgeable staff. Nice and wonderful atmospheric restaurant. The food was really good. One of the best restaurants in Turku. I want to come here again.

Had dinner with my friend. We took appetizers which were really good and tasty. Especially olives were really nice, haven't had this fresh olives in Finland before. For the main we took pizzas. The crust was crunchy and chewy and they give you scissors to...cut it. I found that quite weird, but pizza was good. The staff was very polite and helpful and they suggested wines to match the food. We definitely go again!More

We went with Turku Food Walk card to start the evening with Gustavo's pinxos. Entering the restaurant, we were asked if we have a reservation. No, we don't. We got very blunt "we are fully booked", with the tone of voice that made us feel...like fools, the message came through like "what are you doing here without booking?" No apology, no friendly invitation for the next time. Very rude. It was relatively early, not many tables had customers, I think they could have accommdated us for a quick starter if they were just willing to serve. We dont have to come back again.More

Second time visiting Gustavo, both times have been a success. The starters were excellent, on both occasions, however the star of the show was the lobster risotto with grilled tuna. Highly recommend to try it.

Gustavo, located opposite Turku Cathedral is very popular among the local folk so reservations are recommended. We enjoyed a very pleasant evening in spite of the hard wall surfaces reflecting sound that was a little too loud for a quiet night out. The welcoming was...friendly and the staff maybe a little over enthusiastic to take our order before we had time to open the menu, but Sonja, who subsequently served us admirably with good humour and a very good sense of timing more than made up for the initial feeling or urgency. The food was cooked and presented well and we both left feeling that we had eaten sufficient to last several days. The menu is not too extensive and is predominantly pizza based and similarly the desserts are limited in number, but overall I can recommend Gustavo as a very enjoyable and satisfying place to dine.More

Busy night, we had a big table but service was good. Food was ok too but not excellent. Very good wines though.

I was told only great things about Restaurant Gustavo. However none of them was describing it as great as it actually was. Starting from reservation to be done, everything went great. You could feel that you truly are guest that is waited. Service was humble,...kind and high class. No need for clueless waiting. We had pizzas with us and there were great ones. They were big enough and tasty, like really tasty! At the end with bill you got limoncello glass. That made you truly feel like being in Italy or so! As one spending a lot time in restaurants with my beloved ones, for sure Gustavo will be one to go, when ever I am in Turku again.More

Dined in Gustavo with friends on a Friday night . Place seems to be popular so booked a table a few days in advance . The waitress was eager to serve and asked us to order twice before even we all were seated . Looks...like pinchos is the new way to overcharge for tiny amount of food . Also seems like it’s pretty unclear what pinchos are as some of the dishes we were served were just a small amount of food on a plate . I ordered 5 different portions as the waitress recommended it would be a good amount . The bill was then over 40 euros per head plus wine . Not worth over 160 euros we paid for 2 persons dinner ....... Probably pizza would’ve been a better choice . Remains to be seen .... or not , as I don’t think I’ll be back .More

The small portions "pintxos" were best part of the dinner. For the main courses there were not so many tempting options, but the pasta with rabbit meat was very tasty. Cozy place and good service.
