Description: Right from walking through the door the Gusto Restaurant and Bar - a vibrant and trendy New York style Italian restaurant - exudes a friendly atmosphere you can’t help but feel a part of. Taking its cues in décor from 1950s NYC but with a modern twist, the focus is on the finest freshly prepared Italian dishes from throughout the ages. A restaurant of classical elegance and glamour, Gusto’s menu offers an impressive range, from wood fired pizzas to whole lobster, salt baked sea bass and 28 day aged Premium Steaks. The children’s menu is also fun, allowing the kids to create their own pizzas.

Lovely food and a friendly and approachable service. I had a three course meal at the restaurant and was delighted by all three. For main course, I ordered the Gusto Burger, something which I had heard very good things about and it did not fail to impress in my opinion.

Having had a lovely meal in typical Living Ventures group surroundings, the evening ended in pure shock. Having received good service throughout our meal, we paid the bill and left a generous tip. Our waitress then came back, and asked if we'd seen the salt and pepper grinders- we'd never seen them and they hadn't been on the table from... More

Just had lunch there - very disappointed. Interior itself very nice and staff friendly, but the food! Garlic bread was OK and one of the desserts (pannacotta with ginger) was good, but the rest was poor. Lobster and truffle risotto was a meagre portion (even of the rice!) and dover sole was a mass of bones, and given it was... More

Enjoyed a Friday night here with a large group of work colleagues. I was impressed with the interior - tastefully done. The venue was heaving even at 6.30 pm, but we were greeted and whisked to our table smoothly. The beautiful Harriet (who looked after our table all evening) was a star - highly efficient, incredibly warm and friendly and... More

Went to the new Gustos on Lloyd St in Manchester on Sat. 13 Dec. It's a great room with plenty of buzz. Staff are friendly and attentive. The food we had was very good, although my main course was cool. Staff sorted problem very quickly. First visit to a Gustos restaurant. Very impressed. Will try the Newcastle branch when we... More

We visited here with another couple. It was very busy but the food arrived in a timely manner. What we did have was delicious but the portion sizes were far too small for what we paid. Massive shame really as it was very enjoyable. We had to ask several times for our drinks- and even then some didn't arrive- so... More

Not knowing the area we looked up Italian restaurants on Trip Advisor. Finding that Gusto was well reviewed and was open all afternoon we went. There is free parking nearby. Needing an early meal before moving on to another function we were greeted by friendly and efficient staff. The decor is beautifully lit and the tables well spaced apart. The... More

Eaten here more times that I can recall. Probably once a week for business meetings at least. But we are based in central Manchester and it became to far to travel on a regular basis. I hope the new one in the city centre is half as good as this. Great food and service from staff that really makes you... More
