I enjoyed the restaurant and the food there. I had a nice salmon and the wine was really nice. People there were friendly and they spoke better Italian than English, which was interesting for me.

il Gusto opened in April 2010 and slowly has become one of the best restaurants in Tirana. A comfortable environment, with a Mediterranean brush in every detail which will impress you by offering moments of relaxation. Our gourmet cuisine with delicately prepared dishes from our experienced chefs, will transform your visit into an unforgettable culinary experience. Our wine cellar offers a wide variety of French, Italian and Spanish wines for an imaginary tasting travel into the most famous producers of Mediterranean wines. Our location is beyond perfection. We are located behind the twin towers, surrounded by a colored wall of flowers, away from the noise and close to the most important government buildings like PM’s office, the Parliament etc…If you think that too much talk is excessive, you can always visit us and check for your self. You’re welcome.
