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

Average food ( I had pizza, friends had steak) that would have been overpriced for what it was if we hadn't had a discount card. Our waiter was very pushy, heavy on the suggestive selling. For heaven's sake, I'm an adult who knows his own mind and feel pushed with constantly obvious attempts to raise the bill. I wouldn't go... More

From steak to pasta this place is great. The salt baked sea bass or tuna are delicious. It's a big menu but they cope very well. They also do members cards for discounts too.

My wife and I were looking for an Italian restaurant for a late lunch. We'd previously seen the attractive frontage of Gusto in Didsbury Village and decided to make a bee-line for that establishment. We were delighted with our choice. An attractive, smart restaurant (I'm tired of shabby chic!) with welcoming and attentive staff. And the food... We can make... More

This has to be the nicest steak I have had in ages.. we both ordered the same and shared the green beans and asparagus and they were cooked to perfection. My boyfriend also had the anti pasta which was delicious and lots of meat!! I would highly recommend. It was packed when we went on a Monday night and I... More
