A lovely restaurant tucked away behind Vauxhall Bridge Road. You wouldn’t know it was there if someone didn’t tell you. Delicious food and impeccable service. Only thing I’d criticise is the decor which is a bit cold and actually rather ugly. I shall definitely go back.

Excellent array of food on the menu, courteous, well turned out, attentive, but non-intrusive staff, nice ambiance, ‘slow food’ approach, and artistically tasty fare. Excellent value from money and what a restaurant should be. Gracie mille.

We were very pleased to be back at Gustoso for the first time in months. Takeaways are just not the same. I had bruschetta followed by seabass with the tomato crust and two white wine spritzers - a perfect lunch for a warm day and cooked just as I would want it to be.

A gem in Westminster. A true local Italian, family owned and with great menu. The service is always top notch, going out of their way to make everyone welcome. One small comment? portion sizes could be slightly more... well, more.
Still, we go back often for the many delicacies, crab linguine, calves liver, cacio e pepe...

They got my order wrong but I liked the dish that they brought by mistake! To be fair, I have been here many times and I have never known that happen before; this restaurant is usually completely reliable in every way. The staff are especially nice and friendly.

Tucked away from the crowds of Victoria Street this is a wonderful Italian restaurant that serves really tasty food, with a specials board that is changed daily and some interesting twists of flavour. Like to take friends there for a special lunch with attentive service. Recommend Carasau so crispy, and delicious with a glass of chilled Pinot Grigio, the salmon is superb and the Lemon Cake so moist. I had the enjoyed the Affogato which helped stop me falling asleep at my desk when back in the office. Will no doubt be back again soon.

I went there for my first date with a wonderful lady
Th food was wonderful
The manager was so helpful with bringing the perfect wine and liquor for our deserts
But the waitress totally ruined the service
Cause she brought 1 desert and walked away
Without even remembering to bring mine
And I waited 3-4 minute before I could tell anyone
And the manager released what had happened
But overall the restaurant was wonderful

Pros:
+ Good service
+ Fair priced
+ For central London not too busy or loud

Cons:
+ They had a special menu which didn’t include any of our favourite dishes. The only reason we booked it for Valentine’s Day was because we wanted our favourite dishes.
+ Felt very rushed like they wanted us to eat and get out ASAP whereas we prefer a leisurely evening. We tried our best to fend off the waitress but she was hovering constantly asking what our selection is.

Tip to restaurant:
+ Don’t limit your menu on special occasions. I mean an Italian restaurant without lasagne??!?!
+ Don’t rush your guests. Ask if they want to take their time or if they want everything ASAP. You will find most people just want to take it easy. This isn’t Wagamama.

The restaurant was a lovely place for a valentines evening meal. It is located on a quiet back street and has low level background music so we could talk. The only thing that was a downside was that it was a special menu for that day and we were a little confused by it, We both made good choices though

A good value neighbourhood restaurant that remains deservedly popular in this area. The only minor criticism that I have is that the wine is probably less good value for money than the food.

I have been here several times as it used to be the best Italian in the neighbourhood. It was half empty and we were shown to a cramped table, wedged between other occupied tables. I let it go as there was a very noisy group of diners half way down and I did not want to be any closer. The food is always good here and they usually have a very friendly and efficient maitre d who conducts proceedings. The waiter could not have cared less, totally indifferent, bordering on rude. We were eventually able to order, the starters came quickly enough, the main course 25 minutes after, basically had to shout at him to get a dessert menu.

This is a pity as it used to be a good restaurant. They now have much competition but don’t seem to have stepped up to the plate. Very disappointing.

This was our first to Gustoso since the change in management. We entered a very smoky restaurant, their ventilator had broken down! A couple of open doors sorted the problem but plenty of cold air got in too!
The food was overall similar to previously, just a tat on the salty side, will remember to remind them if that next time.
Other than that and building a relationship with the new staff who were friendly, all’s good!

I have to say I was a bit concerned because Italian but the food we ate was as I would do at home if not better. The ambience was nice and the staff all spoke Italian which was lovely too. The food was well priced and if I can make only one suggestion is to have some wine selection of wine under the £20 price tag.
I will definitely go back again and this time bring my family.
