This was my first visit to a Gusto. The staff were friendly and helpful. My prawn risotto was delicious. It was a very pleasant experience for myself and the rest of our party. I would certainly choose this restaurant again.

I have been to other gusto's in different city's and always been very happy with the food, but on this occasion I was very disappointed, this being my first visit to the Didsbury gusto. Three of us ordered pasta and one pasta small portion. The portions were tiny on huge plates and the small portion was if not the same... More

Gusto is always a reliable option when you want nice food and drink at reasonable prices. However, we went last night and were very disappointed. Food was lovely and up to its usual standards. But... service was extremely poor. We managed to get a table straight away. Sat down and our drinks order was taken. 15 minutes later, still no... More

Six colleagues up from London and wanted somewhere on a Tuesday night that would still have a decent atmosphere and this did. Probably two thirds full by the time we got to our 8pm table. Sat on the raised area at the back we were in one of the booths (never personally a fan of having to shuffle round one... More

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

Thank your for your review. In regards to our starter portion size we don't portion them too large as we view is a prelude to a main courses so guests can comfortably order a main course aswell .

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.
