Diner Reviews
  • "This is the second time in Gustoso and I really enjoyed both times the meal, the atmosphere and the service. We took a burrata with pesto that was amazing. As a main course, pasta and lasagna, both delicious! We will come back for a third time!"
    dined on 23/08/2014
  • "Went there for a Saturday night meal for a date. The service is excellent, they gave us a quiet table as I had requested. I used the 20% off food TopTable discount which they already knew about and it wasn't awkward. Service was excellent, the waiters and manager are Sardinian and they love their food. (I could see the manager inspect every dish before it was served!) the pasta special I had to start was brilliant and the main also fantastic beef, they added in roast potatoes for free as I didn't fancy salad. Tiramisu to die for, house wine was well priced and excellent. Overall I would say this is a little Italian gem hidden away in between Westminster and Pimlico and we will definitely be going back!"
    dined on 23/08/2014
  • "The food was delicious and well presented. I couldn't resist three courses. The staff were attentive and, considering how quiet the restaurant was, they managed to provide the right level of input. The only negative was how quiet the place was for pre-theatre dining on a Friday night. There was only 1 other table. The quality of the food meant that this didn't affect our enjoyment."
    dined on 22/08/2014
  • "What is good about Gustoso is that the quality is consistent - it never has an off day and you won't be disappointed. However, the prices are creeping up a bit and I found myself with a bill for £70 for a two course lunch with house wine for two people and that's after the Opentable discount. I'll be keeping an eye on this."
    dined on 22/08/2014
  • "The atmosphere any given night is warm and inviting, usually full of diners including italians, and emitting a gentle buzz of conversation. The food is wonderfully italian and well executed. The service is delightful and efficient. This is a great addition to Westminster and increasingly a first choice restaurant for us for informal dining."
    dined on 20/08/2014
  • "I booked Gustoso for lunch with a colleague when we were looking for a new place. As we work in Victoria, we usually choose from the more obvious options, but Gustoso came up on my search and, although it's technically Pimlico, it was a close walk from Victoria and Victoria Street, where we work. The atmosphere is lovely and the service and food terrific. It was so good we hesitate to tell others (but that would be selfish)."
    dined on 20/08/2014
  • "Nice food, not overpriced, nice service, they accomodated my diet requirements (food allergies). I'd recommend it for a good catch up with friends or to stay with the family."
    dined on 18/08/2014
  • "The food was very good and the service excellent. The only downer was the restaurant was pretty empty - I had a reservation at 1.30 on a Saturday with only a couple other tables in use. Ok value with the 20% food discount."
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "The food was good as well as the atmosphere and service. Great food-quality value. Will come back"
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "Excellent food and service. Not cheap, but the prices are at least reasonable for London, when other restaurants may not be. We had a wonderful experience."
    dined on 31/07/2014
  • "Very impressed with the food offered here, menu gave a wide variation of dishes making the choice a hard one !, staff were friendly, informative and well presented, myself and my other half would be happy to dine again"
    dined on 27/07/2014
  • "We were going to the Tate Gallery and we have always found it difficult to find good food at a reasonable price especially on a Sunday. Lovely service and good food and even made us oldies romantic in the afternoon."
    dined on 20/07/2014
  • "Nice food, friendly and sufficient service as always. I am confident to bring any friends/clients to dine there. :)"
    dined on 14/07/2014
  • "This is the 3rd or 4th visit to Gustoso. The staff are charming and there is a nice relaxing ambience. Unfortunately after giving feedback last time, there was no change to the carpaccio starter - waifer thin and therefore overpowered by the rocket. The scallops & pea purée however was very good, as was the calamari & zucchini fritti. The calf liver main was too chunky/ thick, and the Beef joint "special" was just 2 large slabs of beef with spinach - felt like a sunday roast but with no roast potatoes or other garnish. Not a dish to call one of the day's "Specials" although was lovely and tender. But Gustoso are generous & welcoming, and we were offered a delicous assortment of desserts on the house including tiramisù. Will return soon. :-)"
    dined on 07/07/2014
  • "What more can I say - very good food, ambiance, service"
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "Visited recently with wife and young son for a 6pm booking on a Saturday evening. Friendly and attentive service, which incurred a 12.5% charge. A varied and extensive menu, specials board, a great choice of wine, but no consideration to meals for children, save for offering smaller pasta options. The food we had was very good, but as someone who enjoys their Italian food I found the portions a little too small. In summary, a wonderful little restaurant around the back streets of Pimlico that’s worth visiting. 8 out of 10!"
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "Second visit to Gustoso, but several months after the first. A welcome return. Great wine list, and superb food. We started off with a glass of prosecco. The starters of calamari and fried zucchini were delightful. The mains of ricotta filled pasts and a Italian sausage pasta and wild mushrooms were very nice indeed - in fact the sausage pasta was exceptional! Both went well with our bottle of Sicilian Red. Service was impeccable throughout, and there was a good break between the starter and the main. The tiramisu was scrumptous. This is an excellent restaurant which I shall try to visit more often, and go through their whole menu."
    dined on 02/07/2014
  • "Another good meal at this consistently good neighbourhood restaurant. I took two friends who live in Bayswater and they said that there was nothing comparable in their area. It's not haute cusine and the portions are not huge but there are some interesting and unusual dishes and the quality is always good."
    dined on 02/07/2014
  • "Rather noisy at lunch time. Half of my party liked their food the others weren't impressed. Quite a lot of emphasis on deep fried which is a bit heavy."
    dined on 30/06/2014
  • "We had the set menu which was excellent as a quick meal before going out. I would recommend this place to anyone for any occasion."
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "Took my best friend to Gustoso yesterday as we both work locally and I'd been raving about it and as ever the experience was marvellous! Ensuring they've another dedicated fan. I would urge all who delight in fabulously prepared Italian (and especially Sardinian) food, warm, friendly informatively efficient service, great wines, a relaxed bistro atmosphere, and superb value to visit too! Grazie mille to all involved - we’ll be back again and again!"
    dined on 25/06/2014
  • "Gustoso is reliably good - tasty, good quality food, nothing too fancy but always hits the spot. Good value and very friendly service."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "This is our local cantina. Reliable, imaginative food, attentive service, fair value for food and wine. The fried calamari starter is excellent, as is the fritto misto main, though not at the same sitting! Pork belly also excellent. Daily specials consistently high quality."
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "A very good "local" restaurant. Always a warm welcome and good service. Food up to scratch. There are better value (i.e. cheaper) restaurants in the area, but not with the same service etc. The discounts available do help though. Would always recommend Gustoso."
    dined on 16/06/2014
  • "Freshly-cooked, delicious and interesting food - this restaurant is a real bonus to this area. Specials always are special, and there is a good choice."
    dined on 16/06/2014
  • "This lovely little restaurant is light and airy and full of character. it's situated in a quiet little side street and feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle. In the restaurant desert that is WestminsterVictoria this is a welcome find! The food is absolutely delicious and the service attentive and smiley. Highly recommended."
    dined on 10/06/2014
  • "Had a great evening at Gustoso catching up with friends. Food is excellent and reasonably priced. The restaurant has a pleasant ambience, the service is efficient but not overly attentive and we weren't rushed at all. Overall an excellent evening and we will definitely visit again."
    dined on 09/06/2014
  • "Back for another early evening meal. Exceedingly well looked after and most excellent food. Cant wait to return."
    dined on 06/06/2014
  • "Great Italian restaurant, high end food and service at midrange prices. Welcoming staff and nice atmosphere. "
    dined on 05/06/2014
  • "Easy to find and to book through internet. Very nice atmosphere. The staff where very friendly and service minded. The meny was very good. Everyone found something nice to eat and it tasted very well. The waiter found a perfect wine to match the food."
    dined on 31/05/2014
  • "Excellent. Freshly cooked food and a very good wine list."
    dined on 30/05/2014
  • "Had a fantastic lunch here. Outstanding food with the most delicious home cooked pasta. I will definately be back."
    dined on 29/05/2014
  • "Gustoso is a fabulous Friday evening choice for a post work date evening to set up the weekend in a wonderful fashion. The relaxed vibe made buzzing and cheering by the great quality of the food and friendly warm service showing off all that's best about Italy (be it Italy in the home of the UK's political classes here!). The set menu is outstanding value for excellent cooking of fine ingredients and always tempts. The whitebait so fresh and succulent with the salmon light and healthy but still luxurious. Marvellous all round and very much recommended. Thanks again to all involved. "
    dined on 23/05/2014
  • "A very good meal was had by all in our party. Addionally we were able to discuss buisiness without difficulty hearing and the ambeance and wait staff did an excellent job. "
    dined on 21/05/2014
  • "This restaurant is tucked away just behind Westminster Cathedral. It is a peaceful street and the relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant reflects this. Service was attentive and friendly. Even though it was a Monday, the place was buzzing when we left. Food was freshly prepared and very tasty. The mixed fried fish dish was enormous! Value was great with a 20% offer on food at the time that we went. In all, a good experience."
    dined on 19/05/2014
  • "This is one of those places that you just don't want to tell anyone about and yet, you want to tell everyone about. The food is great and the servers and owner really want you to just relax and enjoy when dining here. Great for friends, family or business - why go anywhere else?"
    dined on 17/05/2014
  • "This is our local now, we live in SW1 and love coming to Gustoso...they have recently updated their menu, simple choices, not too many items to make which improves the quality of what is cooked FRESH!! The fish, the game and the sauces (gravies) are all fresh and delicious. Using Toptable affords us 15% discount, which pays the service charge and a bit more, which is nice. I don't drink, but my wife thinks their Sardinian red wines are wonderful. Great ambiance, lovely food, good prices, friendly staff...what more does one need! "
    dined on 07/05/2014
  • "I had dinner with two friends in this local restaurant on 6 May. I had been there several times before but my friends had not. We had a great time, thanks to a wonderful ambience and excellent food. My friends were very impressed. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant and the fact that it is a relative newcomer in an area which has so few restaurants makes it even more welcome. "
    dined on 06/05/2014
  • "It was an enjoyable evening with my family. Would go again, perhaps."
    dined on 03/05/2014
  • "Carpaccio starter very good but slithers were way too thin and therefore the parmesan shavings and rocket on top overcrowded and overpowered the star ingredient. Same for the Sea Bass main course - the fish piece was much too small in comparison to accompanying elements. Delicious tiramisù dessert. Overall very good, but must look to reassess the balance and proportions of the dishes, so as to avoid giving the impression that they are saving on costs and selling customers short."
