Went there with a friend on Saturday night , we did not had booking so they offered us table outside which was ideal because of nice warm evening. Food and drinks came really quickly despite the fact that place was full! I really recommend salmon wrapped in prosciutto ham ( was excellent) ! Waitress looking after us did a great... More

Attended with about 35 colleagues, the staff at Gusto handled us all exceptionally, with orders taken in ease and drinks and food coming in a timely manner. Gusto has a great atmosphere to it an ideal for romantic meals or with colleagues or friends. The food was very good and very reasonable. Real bonus to have Peroni Red available!!

Booked lunch for 3 of us and baby granddaughter who, while needing a high chair was not eating. The staff were very attentive and supplied crudités for baby to chew on while we ate. As on our first visit the food was very good and exceptional value with the 40% off lunch card. This is definitely worth visiting if you... More

Sunday, back from holidays, how to stave off the blues, pop out for a spot of lunch. Gusto was handy and local and the menu whilst extensive, undemanding. Rachel, our waitress was great, sparky, polite and on the ball. Great Italian light ale and cocktail and good salmon tartare. Crispy pizza with pork scratching, odd, but what's not to like.... More

Went mid week so it wasn't very busy. There was 9 of us, we sat on a long breakfast style bar down the middle of the restaurant. Only problem was we were sat on bar stools. This was not ideal as one of our party was 83. I'm sure it looked quite comical when we lifted him on!! The food... More

The food was good. We had a garlic bread which was very big, a pizza and pasta. Our table was at the back of the restaurant near the kitchen. You can see into the kitchen and the behaviour of the kitchen staff wasn't very hygienic. Twice I saw a member of staff trying the food and then licking his fingers.... More

I've visited the restaurant a number of times and each time I've been impressed. My most recent meal was last week and it was probably the best of the lot. Previous visits have been around Christmas and at peak time over the weekend(s) and I must admit the restaurant can get very busy, and noisy. I've found the food is... More

very tasty food, nice selection of pasta, pizzas, fishes, meat... Quite busy place, but dinner was served in reasonable time even for our business group of 15 people. Wide selection of tasty wines. Sure to recommend

Not a place for a romantic meal. Once seated and wine has been ordered, you are told you can only have the table for 90 minutes. Not really a problem as we normally finish our meal within that timescale, but it does take the edge off the meal when you are trying to relax. Tables are cramped together, resulting in... More
