We booked a table on a Thursday night and yes the place was busy, lively and buzzing as a previous reviewer has said..... Seated really quickly and thought it was going to be really loud and difficult to talk but funnily enough it was fine - had no trouble holding a conversation. Service was as quick as can be expected... More

I recently visited Gusto with a friend for lunch. We had looked at the menus of several other restaurants on George Street and decided to give it a try. The inside is tastefully decorated giving a ambient feeling to it. Our waiter was very polite and enthusiastic about the menu. My friend now lives in Spain, he regularly eats seafood... More

Booked this restaurant because of reviews I read on tripadvisor, but this restaurant is far nicer than we thought it would be. Service couldn't have been any better, staff were very friendly and attentive. Food is fresh tasty and I suggest people go hungry. Great wine and cocktail lists. Worth a visit when in Edinburgh.

This place was buzzing! It wasn't too noisy though. The food was really nice, fairly reasonable and the service was excellent. Would recommend a visit.

Visited Gusto Edinburgh Nov 2014. Everything was superb from entering - immediately seen to, sat at a great table on 1st floor where we had a birds eye view of the Chef's preparing meals on the floor below via a glass balcony area. Food and timing of courses was superb and service was first class. Great atmosphere too.

Try the carbonara definitely the best we have ever tasted. All round good food if a tad pricy. Will be back for more.

Enjoyed a great meal with business colleagues. The wine list is good - we had a £32 Ripasso at the sommeliers recommendation and it was great. I particularly like the ambiance, with a choice of tables, booths or a big high table in the middle for large parties. Personally, I think the table area is a little dark, but that's... More

about £30 a head including wine. Attractive varied menu. Something for everyone. Good atmosphere and excellent service. Would recommend. The salt fish is especially good.

Food was good enough but if you order a steak be warned that's all you get. Not a chip nor an onion ring. That is unless it's pointed out to you at the point of ordering and you can purchase them at the same time! I had Calamari to start followed by a Ribeye steak which were both very enjoyable.... More

What an enjoyable experience at Gusto. This was recommended to my friends and I for a dinner during a weekend break in Edinburgh. We had a lovely welcome and we were early so we ordered a drink at the bar while we were waiting. Within 5 minutes our table was ready in a lovely booth. We shared 2 starters between... More
