The wine (house Chianti) and food were excellent. Our server was very slow and would disappear for long periods of time. She was pleasant but not available.

Began our vacation with dinner here. Service was very good, but dinners were small and lacking vegetables. The food was not exciting for the price. Our vacation had just an Ok start as a result. We will give this place some time off before visiting again.

How do you screw up chicken parm? Well these guys managed to do it . Also everything is a la carte; even salad is extra ! It should be called Disgustos. Sauces were terrible; runny and soupy with no flavor. Decor was a bit shabby too with filth in every corner you look at. Sorry but never again

Stopped in for lunch at the bar while driving through ct. Used to hang out here when I lived close by. Excellent steak, with fresh salad and unique fries. And the carrot cake was absolutely wonderful

We've been dining with Riccardo and Ellen for at least 20 years and unlike so many other restaurants they've only gotten better. Over the years they've updated and expanded their space and parking (bar area is really special) and the menu and wine list are frequently updated. A variety of daily specials ensure a nice variety and let Riccardo show... More

My In Laws weren't sure where they wanted to eat but like Mexican and Italian. I made reservations without them knowing and we took them there after church saturday night. They were blown away by the interior and exterior of the place. Very mediteranean looking and feel. The roasted garlic, wine, bread, olive oil, etc was perfect and thats before... More

We received a recommendation for this place from the hotel desk clerk nearby, and loved it. I had spinach igloo, with garlic, that was to die for. We each had pan seared scallops over pumpkin squash risotto, & it was outstanding. I eat in Manhattan regularly, & this was superior. Wow.

We'd had a tiring day driving from Virginia, and the front desk at Hampton Inn recommended Gusto which is just down the street from the hotel. It was impressive right from the start: Delicious rosemary foccaccia served with carmelized roasted garlic as soon as we sat down, endless ice water, and a very thoughtfully-chosen, well-priced wine list. My husband had... More

We went here for dinner after a long day of travel. The restaurant was recommended to us at our hotel as the best place to go for Italian.... They couldn't have been more correct. This place is hands down one of the best Italian restaurants I have been too. Great wine selection and excellent service from our waitress Sue made... More

We've driven by this restaurant so many times as it's on a busy commercial road in Milford. . We've seen their recent renovations which have made them an attractive place. Today we attended a family event at Gustos and were really quite taken with the space they created/; Our hosts reserved their atrium for the event and it was very... More
