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.

I have been to El Gusto on many occasions and every time, no matter what we eat the food is of excellent quality. This is one of my favourite restaurants in Boksburg.

I thought it was an Italian restaurant but then I had seafood antipasto and Sushi. The restaurant offers Italian, Japanese, Chinese, seafood, meats and local cuisine. The quality was ok and the prices were fair.

Food was excellent even tho a little different from your average Italian restaurant. Presentation was also a little different and the plates were hot, which helped to keep my medium rare steak at a nice temperature until I had finished eating, and my partner's pasta hot. Waitron was quite good. Ambience typical; create your own. A big plus for me:... More
