A review of Gusto by Sally written on Friday 17th of September 2010
I popped in here with my grandparents and my boyfriend on a Saturday evening. We had not booked a table and while the place looked very busy, the manager at the door said she had a table available but if we were willing to wait for 20 minutes she could get us a booth on the ground level to make it more comfortable for my grandparents and directed us to the bar for a pre-dinner drink. True to her word she came back 20 minutes later and took us to a big round table. I was so impressed because she had gone that extra mile to ensure that my grandparents were looked after. She wasnnt one of those snooty girls either that you see on George Street normally but was chatty and friendly and didnt seem bothered by the fact my boyfriend was staring at her.
A waitress appeared after about 5 minutes and took a drinks order - a cosmo for me and wine for the rest of the table. We all had 3 courses with the highlights being the partridge and the seafood risotto. I had heard so much about the chocolate calzone that I had to have it to. It certainly lived up to the hype but may be a little much after the previous 2 courses.I think Gusto is great and wouldn't think twice about going back or recommedning it to friends..
