We had just a nice experience and tasty food in this restaurant! Relaxing time with the family and good talks with the owner. We will definitely visit you again.

We stumbled on this restaurant and went back that evening hoping to get in. They were kind enough to seat us outside, which was perfect since the weather was nice. Adam had the gnocchi al manzo, which had shredded beef in it, and cheese. I...had the cacio e pepe, and both were absolutely delicious. Definitely I will come back if I am ever in Groningen again! Five stars!More

We heard that this place had very good homemade pastas, so we decided to try. At the start everything sounded good, we ordered the food and wine without any recommendations. I ordered a pasta with prosciutto. When I got my pasta I quickly realized that...it wasn’t prosciutto, so I asked if it was, and the answer was yes. I finished my dish because it wasn’t bad, very average I would say. I asked the waiter to bring me a few pieces of the prosciutto on a plate so I can taste it out of plate. When delivered he said that it’s cooked ham. I googled what prosciutto was because it’s something I really like to eat very often, and I was correct. My girlfriend paid for the dinner because I didn’t want to talk to the staff, and the waiter was super agitated and aggressive towards her with questions about me. Anyway, they lied about the prosciutto from the start, and I think they should change the name of the dish in the menu because it’s so obvious what it is really. The squid ink gnocchi was alright, but I still don’t recommend this place to anyone. My first dislike 👎More

Owner was more than accommodating and friendly over email as our plans changed in the run-up to our visit due to new Covid-restritions. We enjoyed a long, leisurely lunch with our multi-generational family group of 7 people. Warm bread and delicious tapenades followed by a...selection of home-made fresh pastas. Gnocchi were heavenly but the pasta filled with lamb and artichoke was the absolute winner! Tiramisu and great coffee to finish. Relaxed vibe- definitely recommend checking this place out if you’re in Groningen.More

From when we first entered to when we left, tummies full, our experience at Gustatio was fantastic. I had spotted this establishment online several weeks prior and really wanted to check it out, and I am so glad that I did. The menu is extremely...clear that their recipes and the way that they do food is what you are going to get, so ignore any other reviews that say that they wish there was more of this or more of that. The first page of the menu informs you that they do things their way, so the other reviewers really should not have expected anything else. The portions are substantial, and compared to some other places in this city, they really are not charging that much. The food is just lovely. There are a few vegan options, and the waiter was very attentive to when we mentioned being vegan and ensured us that the pasta would be prepared accordingly. The ambience is great, it is an intimate restaurant with the waitstaff flying around the place. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant, and would specifically recommend the bruschetta, the puttanesca, and the wild boar pasta.More

Food was bland and service mediocre. Suggest they add more sauce to all their pastas and provide parmasean cheese at the table. Servers should also follow-up after serving the main courses to see if the food is okay or the table needs anything else e.g....more beverages. We had to ask the server to come over to our table and got a dismissive attitude with some of our requests.More

We have been here march 14th 2015 and loved it. And now, 6 years later, we were as happy with the taste and quality of the food as before. We will return again for this non-compromise italian food experience . Great!

I wasn't expecting much and was pleasantly surprised by this small authentic Italian restaurant. The seafood spaghetti was excellent with home made pasta perfectly cooked. Sauce was well seasoned. Having visited Italy for years this was one of the best I've had ... in Holland!

Small, but cute place. Delicious food. Almost everything homemade. Nice and friendly server. Six tables but it kept the server busy running up and down the stairs. We didn’t feel rushed, even though we had 1,5 hours (we were told in advance).

Gustatio is a no frills restaurant, with friendly service and delicious super quality well thought out dishes. The portion sizes are really good value. We enjoyed every single mouthful, especially our starter of pan fried mustard greens topped with burrata cheese.

The last : years i visited this restaurant for more than 20 times. Always exceeding my expectations. A few appetizers (try the cozze with tomato sauce) and lots of ‘primi’ (at least 20 sorts of pasta, gnocchi, risotto). Homemade, very distinctive even compared with many...restaurants I visited in Italy. And don’t forget to finish with a dolce (tiramisu is great). One of the best pasta restaurants in the Netherlands.More

Hi Simon, no we do not have parking onsite. But there are a few public parkings within meters from our restaurant. The closest on is in Vismartk "Centrum". About 100mt from our restaurant.
