We sat outside and it was a beautiful night. The service was attentive and efficient. The prawns with goat cheese and garlic appetizer was amazing. The beef tortellini in truffle pesto was amazing. There were a lot of items on the menu that tempted us.

Had a pizza and half carafe of wine. All was good, servers were great, pizza was thin crust, tasty, and the house wine was decent, but nothing to write home about.

If you're after some real and authentic Italian cuisine, Gusto delivers. There's no 'fusion-chai-latte-mambo-jambo' stuff on offer, but real Italian cuisine. We didn't check out the Pizzas, but pasta, salads and mains, which were freshly, home-made (like from la nonna) and absolutely how you would...More
