This is the best Italian food in Cape Coral. EVERYTHING we have tasted, is amazing. Jessica is our favorite waitress, what a doll. My favorite is the salmon Gusto, my husband goes back and forth between the eggplant parmesan and the veal or chicken marsala....BUT, everything we have had was fabulous. Highly recommended.More

I had a birthday on Saturday and asked my husband to take me to Gusto Cucina Italiana on N. Del Prado. What a phenomenal meal! I had the Chicken & Shrimp La Rosa and my husband had the Veal Marsala. I could eat that meal...everyday and never tire of it. I could have licked the plate clean with no shame if my husband wouldn't walk out and leave me there. Chef and owner Vincenzo and his family spent some time with us at our table...it truly is a family run enterprise which, of course, ensures consistent quality. Like their website says: "You'll leave satisfied and addicted..." which I now am. I can't rave enough about what a great experience this was.More

Dinning at Gusto is absolutely one of the finest experiences anyone may ever have in dinning out. From the time you arrive your treated by Raquela as though your the most important guests they'll ever serv. It's a very intimate atmosphere no TV's just a...wonderful old world dinning warmth all around.Your dinner is prepared by Vince the owner each meal is cooked fresh & individually.The aromas & flavors that come out of his kitchen are truly special.For entree's my better half had the Gypsy Capellini a Wonderful dish with mushrooms, broccoli a light homemade tomato sauce, roasted red peppers,sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts,angel hair pasta.You can add shrimp or chicken.She Love's it with the shrimp.My favorite is the Veal Michelangelo, it's a melt in your mouth Veal,Sauteed Shrimp,sea scallops,a very light spiced tomato cream sauce,jumbo lump crabmeat, chopped clams,served over Angel hair Again keep in mind Vince prepares each of these meals fresh when you order.You actually can see & hear him back behind a low wall cooking your dinner.Nice touch.So in closing Thanks to Vince and Raquela for making her Birthday very Special I can't Thank you two enough!!More

I just had the best chicken marsala and tiramisu I’ve ever had in my life! it was made from scratch and was absolutely to die for! It was prepared quickly and to my exact specifications. If you’re looking for an exceptional, quick, and reasonably priced...meal don’t look any further! Chef Vince and Raquel have outdone themselves again. Gusto is the best!!More

We vacation here for three weeks and Tuesday evenings are our night for dinner at Gusto Cucina. Their house salad is fresh with a wonderful variety of salad greens, shaved cheese, tomatoes and cucumbers. The balsamic vinaigrette is delicious. My husband ordered chicken Alfredo and...I had the Pappardelle Bolgnese. Both were delicious and served hot which seems to be a problem in restaurants these days. The bread is of good quality. I always take home part of the meal so I have room for the luscious creme brûlée. Jessica, our server is friendly and very attentive to our needs. We look forward to next year’s visits!More
