“Best Pizza in town-if they are open!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2012

Gustavos has a great location right on the square (near the General Store) with a new expanded location. Hands down some of the best pizza I have ever had. But I can't give 5 stars for a couple reasons. 1-it is touch and go on whether they are ever open. On two occasions I planned to go there with a group and they were closed. One time was Wednesday for dinner and another time was a lunch. 2-the set up in the new location is a little uncomfortable. You enter and order and pay at a counter. You then go to a separate bar if you want a beer and pay there. You ten sit and they bring you your food but you clean your own table (which I hate). They also serve Pepsi and not Coke.

I saw another review suggested getting the pizza to go and that is a great suggestion. The pizza is excellent and is true New York style and delicious. Best to enjoy it at home with a Coke :)

“Food is great, take it to go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

Went to Gustavo's to eat because we wanted Pizza. We actually wound up getting salads and stromboli, and the meatball sliders. We were going to stay to eat but I wasn't feeling well so we decided to take it to go. The wait is a bit long so calling ahead is a good idea and the ambiance in the restaurant is so so. The food was really good though so that is why I would recommend you get this to go.

“Excellent staff and friendly patrons :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2012

We recently hosted a gathering for my husband's work at Gustavos. The staff was super friendly and accomodating. The food was excellent and heard nothing but good things from the rest of the party :) Thank you Gustavos!

“Absolutely Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2012

Went with the Family last night to eat out. I had a Calzone, wife had pizza and my son had a hoagie. All were perfectly prepared and delivered hot. We sat at the bar and talked while watching some sports on the TV. Really a great night out. If you havent been in a while you might want to give them another try.
And yes they have weird hours but they post them and try to stay close to the posted hours. It is well worth the time to visit.

“Great little pizza joint!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2011

If you're looking for fancy Italian, you won't find it here. But if your looking for crisp salads & ooey-gooey cheesy pizza & a quaint atmosphere you should definitely give this place a try. They have counter service ordering, a beer & wine bar and a great corner view of the square. I had the house salad & a slice of margerhita pizza. My husband had 2 slices of pepperoni. These are huge slices & I loved that you could order just a slice of a specialty pizza. I highly recommend Gustavo's to those of you who are craving a little pizza while in Dahlonega!!!
