“A welcome addition to Handforth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We visited the restaurant with friends last Friday. We were all sceptical as the Italian that used to be there a few years ago was not so good. We were very pleasantly surprised. The welcome was very warm, we were seated promptly without a reservation. The quality of the food was excellent, the house wine was good and the service excellent too. There was a great busy atmosphere and it was lovely to see a local village restaurant so full of life. There was a great mixture of young people, children and older people, all enjoying good food with friends and family. If the high standards are maintained this will be very successful.

“Delicious lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Visited today with 2 colleagues for a business lunch. As we only had an hour, the speedy, efficient, attentive and friendly service was much appreciated. The ambiance was pleasant, however the restaurant is still comparitively new so wasn't too busy. I don't think all the local business's are aware of this local Italian gem. We chose the business lunch special menu. All 3 of us opted for Ravioli Ala Toscana which was served with several different types of mushrooms. A good sized portion which was extremely tasty and perfectly cooked. A large glass of white or red ( of which there were 3 choices of each to choose from) accompanied the main course for a price of £7.95. We were also given a complementary glass of Limoncello which rounded of the meal perfectly. On receipt of the bill, there was no service charge.

Given that our office is less than a mile away, we will be recommending this to other friends and colleagues, and this will be our new luncheon venue!

Thankyou for the first class meal and service Il Gusto - we will be back!

“Very nice Italian restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Visited last week with my husband, we booked in advance and the place was very busy when we arrived but the service we received was good and the staff were very pleasant.
The food was lovely the portions generous and was good value for money.
Nice to have another good restaurant in Handforth.

“Good Food and Friendly Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Called in without a booking last Saturday night. Very friendly greeting and made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived. Good service, lovely food and reasonably priced. Hope it stays like this because we live very close and it will be great to have a nice Italian restaurant on our doorstep.
Keep it up.
