Description: Right from walking through the door the Gusto Restaurant and Bar - a vibrant and trendy New York style Italian restaurant - exudes a friendly atmosphere you can’t help but feel a part of. Taking its cues in décor from 1950s NYC but with a modern twist, the focus is on the finest freshly prepared Italian dishes from throughout the ages. A restaurant of classical elegance and glamour, Gusto’s menu offers an impressive range, from wood fired pizzas to whole lobster, salt baked sea bass and 28 day aged Premium Steaks. The children’s menu is also fun, allowing the kids to create their own pizzas.

“Lovely place to dine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

The food and atmosphere were spectacular however the staff member serving our table wasn't of the friendliest. Apart from that, the food was great! I would definitely recommend it

“Fabulous Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

We visited last week for a birthday celebration. As soon as we walked in we felt we'd made a great choice as it was very busy for a Tuesday evening and had a great atmosphere.
We all had starters and main courses and the waiting staff were knowledgable about dishes so were able to advise us on our choices.
All five of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals and will definitely return when next in Didsbury.

“Great atmosphere and food which is sadly let down by the service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

A great selection of food dishes shared with a great selection of drinks. The restaurant surrounding unfortunately don't mirror that of the service.
On a late lunch visit with a friend we were greeted and shown to our table, several minutes went by and we still hadn't be able to order a drink even when the restaurant was empty.
We can not fault the food or drinks, however watching fellow diners leave without receiving their coffees as it took forever and others getting inpatient we felt our experience was not the only one below par

Even when watching management and staff congregate together and not acknowledge the issues its a little worrying as I'm sure if the team were led well and engaged they would developer exceptional customer service all the time

This will not put us off coming again, we'd just hope for a higher level of customer service for all

“Birthday treat, thank you Gusto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

Visited Gusto with my sister on Sat 1/2/14 having received a voucher for her birthday offering buy one get one main course free.
They were very nice when we change our booking from 4.30 to 5.30 only a couple of hours before. The restaurant was extremely busy but the staff were attentive and very helpful.
Spoiled for choice with the menu,but the starter tiger prawns in tomato sauce was lovely.
The price was very reasonable great value. We will be back.
