“It's not called gusto Ricco it's called Vesuvio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Lovely touch with the coffee. Owner from Czech Republic used to work there when it was Gusto Ricco.

Price of a nice sit down coffee about the same as costa a Nd Starbucks but oh soooooo much nicer. Have always been able to get a seat probably as its off main drag. If you're a visitor find costa and go down the little side street (union st) it's on the right. Food is ok too. Chef is Italian which makes a change. Crepes could do with being thinner but food is well presented, well priced for Stratford, staff are lovely.

Manager could do with changing his apron and there is a distinct smell I didn't like. Lots of local people but take away coffee and sandwiches. A lovely restaurant that I will always use to meet friends because it ticks all the boxes.

Give it a whirl! Oh and yes it has a converted cellar and the point is? Most of the old converted restaurants in Stratford were once houses. I think that's part of their charm. If you want Pizza Hut then so be it but plenty of us like independent quirky restaurants that offer something a bit different.

Cannelloni and past dishes could do with being served with g/brea or salad, more bread for platter but other than that great.

“OUTSTANDING COFFEE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We often visit here when in Stratford on Avon because the coffee is excellent, along with friendly service and reasonable prices. There is a very romantic room downstairs which would be wonderful for couples needing a night out with 'ambiance'! On occasions we have had a light lunch and/or delicious home-made cake and we were never disappointed with the excellent standard they maintain. The Manager is such a pleasant young man, who always remembers our coffee choices and deserves success. Very well worth a visit any time.

“Not called Gusto Ricco anymore but still excellent!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

I met two friends there for lunch last week - fun place with very pleasant, helpful staff. I had the mushroom risotto which was excellent and a much larger portion than I was expecting for the very reasonable price. Coffee also excellent. Will definitely go back there again.

“A hidden gem in Union Street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Amazing cappuccino and authentic Italian dishes at a reasonable price. The Manager/Host (Jindra) is so friendly and attentive. He seems to have a lot of regulars which I am sure is down to the great food, atmosphere & his charm. Try this place and you won't be disappointed!

“Lovely Italian lunch for 2”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

As local we like to try different places for quick lunch, we had walked past a couple of times and this looked authentic Italian and we weren't disappointed, service was good, food was great and atmosphere on a cold afternoon was warm and inviting, would we go back YES, would we recommend YES. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did ...
