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.

The chefs in this restaurant are worth every penny they are paid. If you like Italian style food you will love it here. The service was faultless and the staff friendly, helpful and attentive. Book early to avoid disappointment.

Went to Gusto yesterday after wanting to go for ages. Had the mussels to start and they were amazing!! Absolutely gorgeous. I ordered the Lemon and Saffron marinated chicken with a marsala reduction. When this came I was quite disappointed as it isn't quite what I was expecting. When I ate it was dry and a bit overcooked. I did... More

Booked a table for ten at 9pm, was super busy so our table wasn't ready in time. However due to having to wait 20mins extra we were given two bottles of wine and garlic bread on the house. The two birthday girls also got puds with candles, which was a special touch. The food was amazing, atmosphere gorgeous and staff... More

Visited the Didsbury restaurant. The place is great. You can see into the kitchen and have a huge stone pizza oven. I recommend the lasagne! Best I've had in a long time. We ate our plates clean and were completely satisfied so their portion sizes are definitely on point. They've recently emailed me a voucher for 50% off a main... More

I have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions when it was Olive. The place has had an extensive refurbishment, extending into premises next door and now has access just off Deansgate. Now, not only a restaurant but a place to go for cocktails or just drinks if not eating, due to very impressive large bar area in the middle of... More
