I have been here before, but I have to say the experience this time was way better. As a couple we shared a great Gorgonzola Cheese salad & mild Piri-Piri Chicken Livers helped along with a good wine & the food & service was top notch. Brilliant!

Italian food is comfort food for me, especially when it's done well. Il Gusto does really good, honest Italian food and has a really comprehensive menu with something for everyone- even those on Banting! Pasta and pizza dishes are exceptionally good, beautifully supported by meat, poultry and fish dishes. The wine list is also impressive, focusing on South African wines.... More

Tucked in a small shopping center next to where I was staying, this place is a nice option if you’re sick of hotel buffets. Actually really nice seafood options, and the usual Italian fare. Reasonably priced. Recommended.

We celebrated our anniversary with dinner and found a gem! They have an amazing wine list with Sangiovese and Malbec. Our food was very tasty and well presented! The waffle trio is out of this world. We will definitely be back.

We found this place by accident as the ONLY fine dining restaurant on a long stretch of main road in Boksburg. You'd think the owners would know this and not bother to keep up appearances, but let me tell you, we cannot get enough of this restaurant. From the entertainment to the fine wines, fantastic sushi, to steak dinners so... More

Since my first review, we had not returned to IL Gusto and then one evening, I desperately felt like their fabulous focaccia with feta and pepperdew....upon calling and making a reservation, we were still apprehensive as to how we would be greeted and treated. To our surprise, the ambience was warm and welcoming and Caroline was over joyed that we... More

Went on a Saturday night 30/04. I had pasta dish, and my husband had the rump steak, enjoyed our food. Nice background music. Very pleasant atmosphere. Great cuppachino. The wine prices are reasonable , not very over priced. I would say value for money compared to other restaurants.
