Right from walking through the door the Gusto Restaurant and Bar - a vibrant and trendy New York style Italian restaurant - exudes a friendly atmosphere you can’t help but feel a part of. Taking its cues in décor from 1950s NYC but with a modern twist, the focus is on the finest freshly prepared Italian dishes from throughout the ages. A restaurant of classical elegance and glamour, Gusto’s menu offers an impressive range, from wood fired pizzas to whole lobster, salt baked sea bass and 28 day aged Premium Steaks. The children’s menu is also fun, allowing the kids to create their own pizzas.

The food was good, although food and drinks a bit over priced! Service OK but steaks served and then had to wait for fries which meant food going cold.

I have been back to this restaurant several times since my review back in 2011. We have always been pleased with the food and service. On this visit our steaks were really excellent but the service was rather poor. Admittedly it was a busy Thursday evening but I would expect them to have their staffing levels sorted out to cope...

We visited this restaurant as a couple on a Friday evening at 7pm. It was a spontaneous visit without a booking and the place was very busy. We received a friendly greeting on entering the restaurant, although we were given an estimated 45 minute waiting time (our fault, we hadn't booked) We were asked if we would like to wait... More

Gusto is a good option for reliable high quality food. Best bargains on the dining club. Pizzas and burger are very good - the platters also very good. Kids menu is fun for families.

We love coming here for tea! It's always great service and great quality food. I had the salt baked sea bass which was (as always) delicious. The place is always so busy but the service is always 2nd to none!!
