Tucked away from busy Victoria, this restaurant offers amazing value and good service. You can taste the freshness of the ingredients and the exquisite combination of flavours. Great find!

Opened in 2007 Il Gustoso has become one of the most celebrated Italian Restaurants in West Kensington and the surrounding areas. Located on the doorstep of the beautiful Holland Park and within reach of Hammersmith Town Centre, Il Gustoso brings authentic Italian flavours to the heart of London. Il Gustoso is very popular with Italian tourists, putting you in mind of the old maxim that natives only eat their own cuisine abroad if it is truly authentic. Il Gustoso is a real rarity in London - an authentic Italian restaurant, which does the basics exceptionally well.
