We have visited here several times in the past and found the food somewhat boring and uninspired, so we stopped eating here. That was about 1 year ago. Stopped in tonight for dinner, as a last resort, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent and the food was very good. We had the Scallop appetizer and Beef Tartar appetizer, both were delicious. Then we had the meatball special and chicken parm, again both were fantastic.
We will eat here again!

We wanted to explore the town and spend the whole day exploring since we had a big lunch. Usually in small towns, most restaurants close sunday or close early, but they were open till 10 pm. Two items which I had never had in my entire life were the deep fried Brussels sprouts and spring roll cheese cake. Those two were the most deliciously unique creations I have ever had. The spaghettios were a bit though, but tasted good. Finally, i had never thought of eggplant being on a pizza, and i had it, and loved it. Perfect for the last night in town as you enjoy a nice dinner and reminisce about your stay.

Trattoria Gusto in Port Hope is a very pleasant surprise to find in a small town. The restaurant is in a lovely boutique hotel (The Waddel) and features a comfortable bar/lounge that is a great place to meet friends, read the paper and enjoy a glass of wine from a well thought out wine list. The dinning room is nicely done and they feature a lovely patio overlooking the Ganaraska river....right in the heart of downtown Port Hope. The food is excellent without being over the top. It is Italian as you can guess from the name. Their specialty thin crust pizza's are excellent...great to share as an appetizer or to have as an entre. Of the pasta's I enjoyed their version of Putenesca. Very flavorful with generous portion of scallops and shrimp pasta perfectly done. Grilled tuna and scallops as appetizers were excellent. We sat on the patio and as the sun set it felt 'dark' candles on the tables would be a nice touch outside. Trattoria Gusto is one of our favorites when in the area and we will be back. Well done!

Sitting here after enjoying the pheasant sausage pasta. It was excellent. My wife had the arrabiata and it also was excellent. As said in other reviews the patio is a very pleasant spot on the river n
