Great night out with family

This bustling restaurant is a great place for meals out with friends. Our party spanned three generations and everyone agreed how much fun we had had. The calamari came in the lightest of batters and there were thumbs up for fish, pizza and pasta. Staff were attentive and helpful and service was... read more

The menu is a bit confusing with a little bit of Italian and a little bit of american food. However, their gnocchi was quite good. I tried their pizza as well. Not the best pizza but still quite a good pizza. Pretty good coffee as well and hence a good option for a warm sunday for the outdoors in Didsbury.... More

I had the pan seared tuna and my other half had the prawn and garlic tagliatelle. Both meals were absolutely stunning. The tuna was *perfectly* cooked rare with a lovely salad. Great staff and fast service even though the place was busy. Highly recommended and we will be going back.

Poor service last Friday. Have eaten at other Gusto restaurant several times so thought it was a safe bet. We were never told the specials. Unfortunately the food was not at all good The pasta I had was lukewarm and there was no server in sight to speak to about it. My partner had a pizza that he always has... More

This restaurant always delivers. You have to book, which is always a good sign, but you can usually squeeze in a table for 2 if you can slot in somewhere. They are fast efficient and polite. Definitely recommend that you get a gusto card too - lots of treats and offers!

Four diners on a Saturday night. This is a quite large restaurant which gives a cosy vibe. The lighting is subdued and provides the effect of eating in a small restaurant. Wait staff very good and pleasant. We shared three starters, the quail eggs, bruschetta and tiger prawns and two pizzas the griffin and prosciutto Ham and cheese for main.... More

We have been here many of times & will continue to do so. The food is always spot on, as is the wine! Staff are very welcoming & friendly, and will always listen & help with any queries you may have. We usually ask for a booth & most times it's granted which is lovely. Can't wait to return again... More

Gusto is an import of the influx in popularity of Didsbury over the last 10 years. There is one in Alderly Edge and that about sums the place up. It is in a prime location on the main strip of Didsbury Village and in a great location for a bite followed by drinks at one of Didsbury many drinking establishments.... More

I've been here a few times and gusto is always buzzing. The seating is vast and the service is always spot on - polite attentive and very helpful. The pasta and pizza is made fresh and is absolutely delicious. We've never been rushed in here and always left very full and very happy. Can't wait to go back!

I visit Gusto quite alot on Saturday or Sunday Lunch. Never had a problem with the food but the service on this day was to say the least a bit worrying. We ordered what we always order and that is the small meals rather than the full size meals and a Garlic Bread which along with the small meals fills... More
