We frequently dine at this quaint little establishment and have never ever had a bad meal or bad service. From delectable lamb chops to scrumptious prawns they also introduced the best sushi we have ever eaten. My husband does not normally enjoy sushi but Il Gusto takes it to a whole new level. The owners George and his wife Carolin... More

I love the food, especially Pasta Di Georgee Part 1. Big helpings (you wont starve). Good atmosphere, you need to book over weekend otherwise you will have to sit in the cold during Winter, but is pleasant in Summer. Reasonably priced, waiters are always on hand, but don't hover.

We were greated at the door by an mean old plump lady who told us to sit outside because the inside is reserved for booking. The waiter acted like she was doing us a favor to take the order!! We waited forever for our food (the people that came after us got their food before us) .. Never will I... More

We went to Il Gusto for Fathersday lunch and the food was good but I think due to the busy day it affected the service from the kitchen to the waiting staff. But over all it was pleasant and the coffee is great!

I've been to Il Gusto twice on April 2015 and both times the food and service was great. In particular, the calamari was exceptional. However, on the two occasions I have visited the restaurant this month, I have been very disappointed. Both times the food was undercooked. Everything from the calamari, the chicken (completely pink inside), the rice and the... More

Starters I ordered the chicken liver. They were amazing! Friends had snails. They were good although too much cheese. Main I had a pizza which was great. My friend ordered prawns which was very good! Thanks for a good service and a great meal!

The food and wine here was superb. I thought this was the place to be for a decent dinner, if in this area.

We had dinner there. The restaurant is in a smallish complex. The food and wine selection was great and the service was excellent. We had lamb shank and kingklip fish, both were great. Il Gusto was a good choice and I will go there again.
