Can't complain about anything here, good service, nice atmosphere and solidly enjoyable food. Probably won't go back but wouldn't mind strolling in accidentally by any means

Overall nowhere near as good as it should be..... The Tortellini main course was so oversalted it was beyond eating. The sauce it was served in was watery and tasted only of salt. 6 toretellini in a £12.95 main course is simply not competitive hence only 5 tables taken up at the peak of lunch hour. The only saving grace... More

This restaurant has excellent staff, hard working courteous and efficient. The food is of the same consistent standard too. Sadly the same cannot be said of the Management team or those greeting you at the door. It's always as though they don't want you to dine there, and if you haven't booked then one is left feeling as though you're... More

Me and my boyfriend went for a lovely meal and we're seated in a booth which gave us a nice View of the restaurant. Our waiter Nicholas and Lisa the manager were very welcoming and efficient. I had the tuna steak and my boyfriend had the lamb which were both amazing and the portion size was just right. We then... More

For food I had meatballs to start, delicious and succulent. For my main I had sea bass - lovely! And for pudding I had Italian mess -... More

Italian styled restaurant. Our mains (crab pasta, risotto) were small and bland. Chilli crab lacked any heat whatsoever. Risotto with pancetta was soupy and pancetta turned out to be a couple of slices of streaky bacon £7 for a 250 ml glass of unexceptional Pinot Grigio is excessive.

has a nice meal at Gusto in Disbury. Menu quite extensive, typical of what you get in an Italian restaurant. Pricing I would say similar to that of Italians in the city centre such as Rosso & Avalanche. We had reserved a table but still had to wait when we arrived but it was ok as there is quite a... More
