We visited gusto based on the high rating received and the recommendation that the steak was the best in town. The steak was sooooo tough and full of grizzle and smelt old. My friend could not eat his. Service was nice but wines overpriced.More

A really cool,modern, fresh feeling Italian restaurant. Really big inside and very professional. The food was good but what made the difference was the cool vibe. Can't fault the service too.

Setting little austere but food worth trip. Sunday night is pasta night with 6 pastas and 6 sauzes. They bring sampling plates to table so everyone gets to taste all. Pasta comes as long as you are hungry. Owner is delightful and clearly Italian.

Dear James, thank you very much for your visit at Gusto. We are very proud of our Pasta Festival, serve every Sunday all day. P.S. Thanks for the "delightful" compliment, yes I'm Italian from Torino and I'm the Restaurant Director not the owner. Alberto Cascio

The food is quite good, the service also. It's however very expensive and the panna cotta tastes horribly.

It is one of the most expensive restaurants in Addis, but still pretty affordable for the regular expat.
