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.

It seems we are becoming regulars. We have been to Gustos trattoria for lunch, dinner and holidays. Most recently, for Easter. Gusto's was booked solid. We made our reservations early so we had no problem. They had a special menu of ham and lamb plus the regular menu. Nice. Everyone got what they wanted. The lamb was tender and delicious.... More

We have been going here regularly for years. It is a great place for a family dinner as well as a date night with your love. We love many things on the menu especially the daily fish special and pastas.
