“Do not loose basics”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Each time I visit this place it was a pleasure. Today I TRIED the tagliateli bolognaise. I tasted this last time from my friends plate and it was like heaven. So I expected the real thing again. But no, nope, nada... What a shame... Chef, do not loose it , i did not taste the bone...

“Simply the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

Unique is an understatement. I don't think I have had a dining experience quite like it.
Restaurant busy but that didn't affect either service or meal. The waiter was attentive and helpful. All the food was excellent. The portion sizes were just right. Was worried about cost but it was great value.
My cousin, living in Diest took us. She is a regular here.

Tonino the owner is the level headed one and he was great. Warm and friendly beyond words.

They treated us as if we had been guests in thier home for years

The food we had been served was as good as any we have had. Lots of beautiful people and fun and drink, it was great. I would highly recommend this kind of dining experience.

“The best Italian place to hang out with your friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

My boyfriend and I were traveling in Belgium on holiday. One night we stop by Diest for a overnight stay and we were so so hungry. We saw this quiet, friendly and warm place called "Il Giusto Gusto". It was one of the best dinners we had in Europe.

The staff was very friendly accommodating any request we made. My boyfriend is Australian and I was very surprised that he loved everything we have eaten in this restaurant.

Yummy and fresh Italian food. For a moment, I though we were in Italy. My boyfriend ordered a lasagna which was so tasty. The tomato sauce and the mozzarella so fresh with a lot of filling inside. I ordered my favorite dish Tortellini prosciutto e piselli with fresh cream very delicate.

We also had a lovely surprise at the end. The owner approached our table and with his complimentary he offered us a free drink. We could choose between an "amaro" or "limoncello". He said that this was the Italian tradition. At the end of each meal, Italians have a short drink to help the digestion.

We really loved this place and we hope one day to go back. We recommended it to all our Australian mates.
