We had a fantastic dinner at this little restaurant with great service. I chose the special dinner menu (E35) and was so pleased with the generous portion size and quality of the entrees...the homemade pasta with fish was light and fresh and the breaded sea bream came with assorted mixed vegetables. The first course was enough for both my husband... More

Went there without a reservation and only got a late table, even to Italian standards. We ordered simple dishes but which require cooking care e.g. tuna steak. Everything was perfect albeit the portions were small, even to European standards. Service was welcoming and kind, albeit slow, very slow, even to every standard. A place to recommend to gourmets!

Based on good reviews we had high expectations. Nice venue with nearby parking (bring coins) and lovely to walk around prior to dinner. Friendly service and English spoken - only one miscommunication. Food was underwhelming - a disappointment really. Not bad but not that great either. Not inexpensive either. More than €100 for 2 children to have one course and... More

Walking among the streets of Pietrasanta we came across this nice restaurant. After a first hesitation - it was really crowded - we decided to stop for dinner. The staff is really welcoming and the food was a great positive surprise dish after dish. The owner himself gave us a great treatment and made us feel welcome in spite of... More

Really enjoyed our visit to Locanda Del Gusto. Staff were super friendly and went out of their way to accommodate our limited Italian to explain every dish as well as accommodating our two young kids. Food was excellent and wine was yum. Cannot fault the place.

We had dinner at the Locanda del Gusto and really enjoyed our food (great starter and excellent primi). It may not be the cheapest restaurant but it is definitely worth the money! If you want to spend a special evening with excellent food and great service, you should try this!

We had a very nice evening. The food was very nice, typical Toscan, with some special touch. The service was slow, due to overcrowded evening.

We visited this place as a family of 10 and the place is just well managed. It's located a couple of minutes away from all the shops. It is charming, nicely decorated and the food is really tasty and nicely presented. Service is top notch. Keep it up. This is now our go to restaurant in Pietrasanta. Highly recommended.

I wanted to eat in Pietrasanta so we could grab the feeling of being in an old Italian town and get that Mediterranean evening feel of outside eating coupled with the freedom of being able to stroll down the small streets of window shop here. It's a perfect spot, the staff all want to speak English (although we managed to... More
