“A great local find” chime fans of Gustoso – a “sweet” neighbourhood ristorante that also offers the oenophile pleasures of an enoteca, plus an interior piled with provisions. From the same Claudio Pulze stable as Al Duca and Osteria dell’Angelo, this place is also greatly appreciated for its relaxed, family-friendly vibe, gentle prices and uncomplicated trattoria food – from sliced-to-order Parma ham to homemade pasta and more besides. Aperitifs and nibbles are available at the bar, while the full menu offers authentic flavours ranging from thin-cut vitello tonnato or a risotto with cuttlefish ragù to fritto misto, beef tagliata or pork fillet with savoy cabbage, raisins and apple sauce. To finish, try nougat parfait with hazelnut and chocolate sauce or pick from the selection of artisan cheeses. “Happy, willing staff” get good notices, and there’s a substantial list of Italian regional wines.

It's not often that a revisit totally changes my view of a restaurant's worth, but this time it did.
To recap, I visited Gustoso for the first and only time a few years back and had a pretty mediocre meal though served by smiley and helpful people.
Then a few weeks ago I needed a restaurant for lunch in that area, and looked around. I just didn't find anything that was really dragging me towards it so with some trepidation I booked Gustoso , noting the good reviews and hoping that I'd just caught in on a bad day last time.
I have to say that we came away delighted. Same smiley people and good, brisk service, but this time everything we ate was tasty and great value. The soup, pasta special and calves liver mains were all nicely cooked and altogether we had a very pleasant meal. Our two courses each with coffee and a bottle of a decent Nero d'Avola came to £68 including service - great value we thought. Its not a gourmet restaurant , won't win a Michelin Star but has a good wide choice and tasty food . I'm pleased to have been wrong and will have no hesitation in going back

Had a really enjoyable evening meal for four. Menu and specials all sounded enticing and wine list looked very good (if a little pricey!). The waiter was very attentive, allowing me to taste before buying the wine and he had a great sense of humour which only added to the overall enjoyment. Food tasted excellent and I would highly recommend this place for Italian food lovers.
