My husband and I happened upon Gusto and I'm glad that we did. We shared a garden vegetable salad (which was fresh, clean and reasonably priced at 190 baht). My husband had the ravioli, which was very good, and I had the mussels and clams in a chili white-wine broth. Outstanding. The house red wine was very good as well. Granted, Gusto is not anything 'extra-special.' But it's a lovely atmosphere and the food is quality. If you need a night off from curry, this is your place. We're going again tonight to try the pizza, which I was staring at with envy the other night.

Gusto, is a fantastic restaurant which makes you feel to be not a client but a friend and has it's unique atmosphere of a little Italy. We had 2 weeks vocation in Thailand and 1 week we spent in Koh Samui. We visited Fisherman's village walking street on Friday and Gusto attracts our attention immediately. We've been welcomed by the owner - Roberta and we were lucky to have a table exactly facing the sea. The food was amazing, since long time i didn't have such a great dinner, such a good service with the personal attention of the owner. After that dinner we have been back other 3 times and for sure when we are in Samui next time i won't miss a chance to return to Gusto. So, my advice if you are looking for good quality Italian food - go to Gusto and you won't regret it!! Roberta, thank you very much again and see you next time, Katty

This nice restaurant caught our attention because it looks very nice and has seats near the beach (like most other). The bruschetta were very nice but the pizza was a bit burned and very oily. Maybe the young boy, who made the pizza's, had an off day but everything was average.

We had a great welcome into the restaurant.

We had a brochette for entree, delicious! Pizza and Gnocchi for the main course. All dishes were very good. We were serviced very quickly and didn't wait too much for the food. The wine menu lacked a variety of wines by glass, and not by bottle. The house wine, only option for wine by glass, was average.

Altogether, an excellent restaurant. recommended.

i visited bophut for the "walking street market", but instead of eating in the market, i decided to go into a restaurant facing the sea, and i choosed gusto restaurant. i wasnt very hungry, so "only" had a plate of gnocchi al pesto, and they were very tasty and the way gnocchi should be. and also - as previously posted - the expresso was great as well.

the only very small negative point - almost everywhere in the world (including almost every other place i have ever visited in thailand, and i've been to thailand at least 30 times) , you get free drinking water, but not here.
