The food at Gusto Italiano is always delicious. They make a fantastic ragu and the risottos are also a favourite. It is easy to feel as though you are in a little village cafe in Italy rather than Ponsonby Road. The owner and staff go out of their way with good service and to make everyone feel relaxed and welcome.

We loved our meal here-beautiful food. The gnocchi is divine, the tortellini porcini was gorgeous and the carbonara was excellent. A nice salad and robust Shiraz topped it off along with a round of pizza bread. The service was lovely as well.

We are going back next week to an opera evening - awesome.

This is our second time here in our ten days in Aukland for the World Masters Games #WMG2017. Its right around the corner from the house we're staying in and has been a very comfortable, friendly place to eat. The food was excellent. I had house-made raviolis that were light and delicious. I'd recommend it highly.

This is a typical Italian neighborhood restaurant, nothing more, nothing less. For starters, we had the tomato mozzarella salad, good taste, but both the cheese and the tomatoes were a bit tasteless. For mains we had two different pastas, also good taste but I would have preferred more vegetables and meat, was mainly just sauce and pasta. Overall an ok experience.
