“Fantastic decaf Americano and crepes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

The quality of the coffee and the food is really excellent. I've never had a bad coffee or meal from here. I love the 'build your own' panini which is very good value for money. The Nutella crepes are absolutely delicious and I would eat them every day of the week if I could. They're freshly made and have the right balance of chocolate to crepe. The decaf Americano is one of the best in Leamington. Consistently good decaf, with perfect crema and delicious complimentary amaretto biscotti. The cakes are very nice although they don't look particularly 'home made' but they do taste good. The quirky coffee shop layout provides a really nice atmosphere with the top floor really light and private (although slower service up there...!) The first floor has some good tables too which are not too tightly packed.

Last visit was marred by poor service and we waited 35 minutes NOT to get a Nutella crepe which was a real shame as I'd been so looking forward to it whilst shopping (although I guess it did my waistline a favour!). I reminded the waitress after 20 minutes and she said it would be 5 minutes. After 15 minutes we decided to leave so as not to overstay our parking and they did offer to make it a takeaway crepe as it was just on ready but I'd lost my appetite. They also forgot the little amaretto biscotti that always comes with the coffee which was a shame as well. But that was the only poor experience in over a dozen visits.

“Lovely,cosy,coffee shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

Visited for coffee, hot chocolate & crepe with Nutella (yum). Will certainly return again. Coffee was fresh & delicious. One small criticism would be that there wasn't a great choice of cakes, hence the crepe.

“Try the Gusto Ricco if you want an enjoyable coffee experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Firstly this place has a good feel, a genuine Italian experience. On a good day you can sit outside on Regent street and watch the world go by, or go inside and my advice is to explore before you sit down as it has two more floors in addition to the ground floor and how interesting these floors are with small tables on the first and like a lounge from the past on the second.

On a Thursday lunchtime we enjoyed the Gusto Ricco sharing platter for £12.00 and an excellent coffee and a tea served in a proper teapot it was excellent. It is certainly worth a visit even for a coffee if you are fed up with the standard High Street brands.

“A Charming Small Cafe Serviing Great Coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012 via mobile

Stopped by for a cappuccino, and it was very good: rich coffee flavour coupled with a smooth taste.

The crepe I was tempted into having was also good. Shame about the use of "squirty cream"; but the crepe itself had good flavour and texture.

This is a small, charming cafe. Service was good; ambience was excellent. I felt like I was in holiday. So much better than the soulless mega-chains.
