We asked locals for a suggestion for a good dinner in Uvita. Gusto was highly recommended. They were Covid compliance. We enjoyed a delicious Italian dinner and a beautiful view of Whale’s Tail (although if you want to see the full tail try and be...there at low time) and a gorgeous sunset. The owner was very friendly and provided us with a sample of her delicious focaccia to sample while we waited for our dinner. I enjoyed my gnocchi. My only complaint was I couldn’t eat it all! My husband loved his meal, sorry I don’t remember what it was, I was too focused on my meal! My husband gave Gusto’s a huge 10!More

This family run, authentic Italian restaurant is a hidden gem. The service is warm and personable. On busy nights, they can get slammed and service may be slow for a bit, because they make all the food from scratch. That's when you sit back, listen...to the waves crashing below you and talk about the perfect sunset over the pacific you just watched... We love this place and everyone we have taken agrees that it is incredibly good Italian food and a great experience.More

We ate here for dinner and arrived just in time for sunset. You felt like you were perched on top of the world! The restaurant itself is tucked away and a little off the beaten path, which made it feel like a secret we stumbled...upon. The food was to die for and the owner (and his precious German Shepard) were great hosts. We would definitely eat here again!More

Nice view, but then there are so many choices. I was hoping for a great Italian dinner, since my husband is of Italian heritage. It was OK, but not great

We had the ravioli with pumpkin and smoked cheese twice. Perfectly balanced bites of deliciousness. We also had a pasta with tomato sauce, which was excellent. The bruschetta was good as well. I wish we had tried the gnocchi with Gorgonzola, pear and walnuts!! Lovely...service and fabulous view. You can’t go wrong!More

Friendly and attentive service, fabulous food, stunning ocean surf and Whales Tail views. This has become a new favorite of ours. We've been there twice and vow to make it a regular "date night" place to dine. The prices are extremely reasonable and the Italian...wine is devine!More
