Great local stop

Visited Gusto for lunch the other day and was pleasantly surprised to find it is a great local spot for a reasonably priced lunch, easy access, pleasant surroundings and fine service.

Ate here at the recommendation of staff at the Hampton Inn which is very close. Glad I took their advise. The atmosphere was very nice. I sat at the bar which was crowded at first. The bar area has small tables for solo diners if sitting at the bar isn't your thing. The staff was super friendly. Even waiters that... More

I found the restaurant far too pricey for the quality and amount of food. Dinner did not have salad or soup unless you order from the price fix menu. For the cost of the meal it should have the choice. I found the dinners to be mediocre. There is a nice touch with the roasted garlic served with the bread.... More

On a whim, I tried Gusto's bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer. It was beyond delicious and practically a full meal. I ordered dinner more to say thank you than out of hunger. I am not a fine dining expert, but if you want one of the tastiest dishes ever, go to Gusto's!

I met work colleagues for a Christmas luncheon. We havent been to Gustos for a while so we decided to give it a try. The place was busy with holiday diners. We took advantage of a special that featured app. entree and dessert for a fixed price. We enjoyed our choices especially the entree selection. There was something for everyone.... More

A somewhat upscale Italian restaurant very close to the interstate and the Hampton Inn I stayed. The seating and service was quick and the food very good. The menu consisted of all of the typical Italian dishes and also some seemingly original entrees. I know nothing about wine but the wine list looked fairly comprehensive and varied. Décor was decent.... More

Our local ALS chapter had a caregiver's private party here and it was my first time at Gusto's. I was very impressed with the layout of the restaurant. It's very elegant, clean and nicely decorated. Every staff member that I came in contact with represented Gusto's well and they obviously take their customer service seriously. We had two servers attending... More

The atmosphere was great for work or pleasure. Not to loud and didn't feel like we had to whisper either. We were greeted as if we were the best people in the world and the wait staff were great as well. Not too much attention and not too little. They were good about refilling drinks and removing unnecessary items from... More

This is a very large restaurant and parking was difficult because they were very busy. We were seated promptly and the service was very pleasant and efficient. The food was good but not different or unique in any way.

We visited Gusto's on a Sat night in September. We had just returned from a long trip and were anxious for a quiet and comfortable setting for dinner. Gusto's delivered on that and the wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was just OK.... large portions provided lunch for the next day, but still... it was all just... More
