Nice place to sit down and eat!

This place is not bad at all. Really nice staff with a decent menu for anybody. We stopped by as a group of four and got seated outside on a nice breezy evening. The food was good but you really need to be going for a 3 course meal to really feel satisfied. I would go again!

Been wanting to try this place every time we visit Milford from Long Island. We don't ask for much...just tasty food and grown-up-sized portions. We don't even care about price when we are away from home. This place showed a lot of promise when we walked in, but just kept getting worse as we worked our way through dinner. i... More

Went for lunch & chose our meals of the prix fix menu. Get a fabulous salmon over mixed greens, salad or soup plus cheesecake or gelato for dessert. Great lunch & price was very reasonable!!

We sat in the glass room and had the early bird specials which were a good value for the money - soup or salad, an entree, dessert and coffee for 18.95. Other than a bit of cartilage attached to one end of the chicken parm. we enjoyed our dinner. However, there were several flies buzzing around the tables which was... More

We went to Gusto's on a Tuesday night and the place was half empty, but the service was outstanding. It was the best Veal Genovese I ever tasted. Sterling's Cabernet was a great addition to the meal. I will come back and recommend it warmly!

These guys know how to do it. Service: incredible. Food: I had salad with chicken at the bar with their house dressing(out of this world) served with toasted bread, garlic and oil. Sam Adams on tap...always a plus. But really, for me it was the service that made me write a review. Mary Ann was the bartender. She was awesome,... More

When Gusto first opened many years ago, I was not crazy about it. That has all changed and it is now one of those places I consider for a special occasion. The food is excellent but it does carry a price tag. Not outrageous, but typical of good dining. The veal chop is amazing as are the short ribs. There... More

Stopped by while in town for business. Wasn't thinking it would be too exciting but as the wife and I sat on the new terrace and heard about the daily special, my mouth watered. The steak was cooked perfectly, the soup was tasty, and the wood fired pizza amazing, plus some cheesecake? Seriously good eats.

I live locally and occasionally pop in to this restaurant and it is CONSISTENTLY a great meal, with mature outstanding service! I had the steak salad, which was cooked to perfection and all of the greens were fresh! In the past I have had chicken and veal marsala which is wonderful! I love chicken francaise but I feel theirs has... More
