Simply Delicious

We treat food with the utter most respect here at Gustavo. We carefully choose the best ingredients, and we do our best to find the best seasonal, local produce. We have a strong passion for the Mediterranean food culture, and strive for perfection when we conduct the flavors that we deliver to your table.

In addition to our menu, we offer daily and weekly specials.

Handcrafted for deliciousness

We make our pizzas “Naples style”, and as everyone knows, the secret to the perfect pizza is in the dough. We carefully handcraft our pizzas from scratch, allowing the dough to rest until it is perfect for baking. Our pizza chef tosses every pie by hand, and the result is the perfect, airy “cornicore” (eng. crust) that you only find in the finest artisan pizzas. We truly love our pies, and at Gustavo, every pizza is handcrafted to perfection.

Wine and drinks

Wines to greet your every sense.

A good wine perfects the dinner, don’t you think? We take wine seriously at Gustavo, focusing on providing our guests with a carefully picked selection of the finest bottles from the Mediterranean region. Most of our wines are from small, private vineyards in Italy, Spain and France, as we want to provide our guests with new, interesting, never-before-tried tastes.

Besides the wine selection, we take great pride in offering the most interesting selection of grappa and sherry in Turku, as well.

Let us introduce you to your Mediterranean tour guides



Markus is the master of flavors, Head Chef, and owner of Gustavo. His frequent travels set the base for his passion for the Mediterranean food, wine and culture. His dedication combined with a deep knowledge in classical cooking techniques - which he acquired through an international career - resulted in the opening of his masterpiece, Gustavo!


Gustavo’s Restaurant Manager Marie Afonso's smile gets wider while we talk about wine and food paring – great wine makes the dining experience complete. Having roots in Mediterranean, Marie brings her special spice on Gustavo’s Mediterranean style with Scandinavian twist.


The great master behind Gustavo’s pizza is Carlos Granati. His love for pizza and Mediterranean kitchen comes from his Italian roots. In his philosophy, pizza is in continuous evolution, yet still honors the traditions of Naples pizza. The secrets behind the Gustavo’s delicacies are using special flours in the dough and letting it rest for 72 hours. Carlos’ all-time favorite is Margarita – it’s where it all began.
