“Excellent food and great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

We found this through tripadvisor and it lived up to the good reviews!! The pecorino with honey is lovely as was the bresaola.
The chicken main course was excellent and a few of us had pasta that was delicous too

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

Tables and decor are very contempory. More like a very casual restaurant. The tagliata (steak) was very good but the ossobuco was very bad. Instead of tender meat around a bone it was more a steak around a bone. It is supposed to be so tender that you should cut it with your fork but we have to use a knife. It is vey noisy when the room is full espacially when there is a group of 20 people.

“Just lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

It was the menu that attracted us here. We had planned on going to another restaraunt, Da Divo, but when it came to it we didnt fancy there menu. Osteria Del Gustos had a large choice in all sections and the prices were very reasonable, When the food came it was beautifully cooked. We choose a mixed bruschetta dish to start which was followed by chicken breast for me cooked in rosemary and pink peppercorns. The flavours were infushed right through the chicken which was moist and delicious. It came with roast potatoes and was served on a bed of wilted rocket. Hubby chose a boar ragu which we he polished off in double quick time. We had two glasses of the Chiani Classico which was very good indeed. The restaraunt itself lacked atmosphere but that was only because we were the only ones there having arrived immediately it opened on a rainy Monday night. The room was very modern, decked out in black and white photographs from the Palio, and two men, who I assume were the owners. Both of whom came over to speak to us despite the fact that we couldnt speak much Italian. It was a nice touch. definately an evening of good food and wine. Very happy.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Really enjoyed the food here. The grilled pork was wonderful and chocolate dessert was such that we wanted to lick the plate. We did not have reservations and they were very accommodating (mid-week). We'd go again.

“Yummy authentic Italian food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Very good food, good prices. This place is not tourist-y - real Italians were eating here! I had Pici (basically thick spaghetti) in tomato, olive, and garlic sauce. Yummy! Very nice staff, prompt service. Just a great experience. One of the best restaurants I found in Italy.
