“Relaxing Monday night”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Went here with a friend on a Monday night (quite busy!) and had a lovely relaxing time. We ordered starters to begin with and found that we couldn't fit in any more after sharing the houmous with flatbread and a garlic bread with cheese. The garlic bread was the same size as a pizza and we couldn't possibly have eaten a main as well! We did squeeze in a dessert though and the chocolate brownie was lovely. The drinks were quite expensive (£4 for a pint of Coke!) but the food was great and the service good.

“A bit slow”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Visited recently with family - very welcoming and attentive throughout the meal. Food was excellent and nice touch to let children "make" their own pizza. Restaurant has good atmosphere BUT we did have a wait for each course - just the kind of wait when you begin to think the order has gone missing ! However food was worth the wait and we had a good time.

“Great night out. Rated as an informal bistro”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Friends booked it but been before. Very lively place particularly on a Saturday night typical upmarket Italian bistro. If you like the liveliness and therefor atmosphere and noise this is a place to go. That is not a criticism but just a statement we did and had a great night. All 4 starters excellent pâté,mackerel,calamari and for me mussels which were great. Mains of risotto and pasta which again were perfect but others had excellent large portions of hake and sea bass. Merlo and valpolicella wines normal at £20 and £26 perhaps on the high side for the quality. Service friendly and fun. Only down side is whilst toilets ok access grubby.

Overall very good in all areas and we will go back

“The best Peking Duck pizza!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

After hammering the Seacroft in Trearddur Bay because the duck "walked through my pizza on stilts", it is a pleasure to be re-united with one of my favourite and unusual pizza's!
I first had it at a GUSTO in Alderley Edge a couple of years ago and it still remains one of my favourite casual suppers! - occassionally! You can have too much of a good thing!!!
Great atmosphere in this bar and all seem to enjoy the food. Staff are attentive and for Cheshire, Gusto remain good value.
