“Quaint atmosphere and location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

I had THE best liver ever! My mouth is still watering while I write about it... It's not something that people normally order in an italian restaurant, but I had a craving and I saw it on the menu. It was lightly cooked in butter and olive oil with sage. A heavenly, melt-in-your-mouth experience.

We were a party of six and were easily accommodated by the waiter who spoke to us in no less than three languages (He was Italian, spoke german and french fluently). Each dish was paired with wine and made the whole experience even better. It's nice to have a helpful staff that is not snobish or borish...

All the meals were fantastic and prepared with fresh ingedients. The sauces were light and very southern italian in style... the cook knew what he\she was doing! A perfect evening was had by all... there are several gelato vendors in the area to top it all off.

“Excellent food, Warm Environment, Superb Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

The wine list is comprehensive and the food is always excellent. The owner of Gusto used to work at the nearby italian restaurant Incontro (which is also superb - especially the pasta with truffles) which we often alternate with Gusto. Gusto is very accommodating of people who speak other languages and have menus for English and work to explain the menu to you. Being able to sit on the street and watch people walk by during pleasant weather is also a plus -especially in the old and scenic part of the city. Friendly people are great food make it a wonderful choice.

“Another perfect evening outside with quality food and wine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2011

Excellent service! Made great wine recommendations and helped with the menu. We had 3 servers and all acted as a team. The food was perfect from caesar salad, bread and oil, sausage and veggies, tiramisu...Planeta Merlot 2007 so good!
