Trattoria iL Gusto Wine Bar
I chose Trattoria iL Gusto Wine Bar to celebrate my birthday with a friend. We had dinner here several times before. The food and service always excellent. We chose the frittata on the brunch menu which came with a nice salad. Later tea and a wonderful ice cream dessert. The ambience for these pandemic times is great The restaurant set off from the street with huge heaters. Although the day was cold we never felt it. Highly recommend!
Had dinner with friends-veal is delicious! Great service. Very nice and warm outdoor dining.
A fine dining experience...food is always well prepared and served by a kind staff.
This dining experience has been the best relief from the pandemic so far! Food is fabulous , service is excellent and the outdoor dining experience has been so pleasant. Highly recommend them.
I have been here 3 times and it is the BEST place on the Upper West Side for outdoor dining in the winter. The food is delicious and the heaters are perfect. The tables are perfectly spaced and the ambiance is just lovely. I cannot recommend it more highly! I had two delightful evenings there. A truly welcome break from the pandemic.
Covid-safe, warm despite subzero temperatures, delicious food!
Had Christmas Eve dinner at Trattoria. Sat outside with the heat
lamps which kicked off enough heat to permit us to take off our coats. They were busy - no empty tables - yet everyone
was spaced out. EverythIng we ordered was perfectly seasoned and prepared and we had the usual attentive service. It’s our neighborhood go-to restaurant for a reason.
A warm hearted outdoor dining experience. Grateful for a lovely space for an annual holiday dinner. Gracious service.
As good as or better than usual. We love this restaurant. The staff is always wonderful and the food and drinks are delicious.
The food has gotten bad and skimpy I just can’t stand there arrogant attitude Used to enjoy place but ate there Sunday was terrible Bloody Mary stunk my eggs were terrible and French fries were greedy and skippy for a charge of 8 dollars All and all not going there anymore
The food was exceptional. The desert was fantastic. The drinks were delicious too. The guy who waited on us was short and condescending. outside of him the staff was very polite. The guy's mask wasn't on properly either and it was def uncomfortable. However as a whole I give it amazing ratings. The food here is perfect and so full of flavor. The outdoors spot has heaters too. Def check it out and pray you dont get the @$$ :)
Very pleasant as always. This is a convenient neighborhood place for us for lunch, brunch or dinner, and the food and service are good and a good value. They're managing outdoor dining well, even in chilly weather, so we'll keep coming for now.
Very poor service, mediocre food, and high prices.
Even with current challenges of space and warmth, il Gusto creates a welcoming envirnment.
The outdoor seating set up is great, and our waiter was also great. Appreciate the high level of service despite also being very careful. Our group of four felt very safe dining there. Nice atmosphere despite being outside on a chilly night.
It's becoming our go-to neighborhood place, moderately priced, good food, pleasant service, sheltered outdoor dining.
We celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday with his family. The food was incredible (as always) and the wait staff could not be any kinder.
We feel comfortable dining at this restaurant during this time. We have eaten here often. Always good service. Always good food.
I love our neighborhood GEM!
Great neighborhood place. We've been going for brunch or lunch. Not an extensive menu, but varied enough for different tastes and appetites. Managing pandemic precautions quite well with outdoor dining. Pleasant service. Enjoyable place to linger over coffee.
Found this nice spot on the UWS - large outdoor dining area on a wide part of the sidewalk on Columbus Ave. We went twice recently. Service was very attentive, the meals were fine, particularly the veal dishes. Pasta could have been bit more al dente. Will go back.
Really great outdoor dining!
Good food, not exorbitant prices. Sheltered outdoor dining observing COVID-19 guidelines. Strategically placed heaters take the chill off the air. Very pleasant service. Nice place for leisurely conversation or a celebration.
My friends and I booked this place via individual reservation. Our group together was approx 20 people. We decided to go there at 4:00 last Friday hoping to help support our local businesses.
Sadly we were greeted by a very rude manager who seemed absolutely bothered that we were there. He instructed us to stay seated and not be loud. Throughout our stay he remained unbelievably rude to us. We spent a lot of money there.
The food was great. I will never go back. The manager’s attitude was like nothing I have ever experienced.
does a great job making you forget that we are in the midst of a pandemoc.
The real treat of the evening was definitely the cacio e pepe--even without the truffles it would have been authentic. We felt as if we were somewhere in Rome. The lamb chops were perfectly cooked and the sauce was absolutely gorgeous. We loved the delightful glass of limoncello to top off a perfect evening. Will definitely be back--the heaters kept us warm and comfortable.
Impeccably attentive but unobtrusive service. Excellent wine list. Homemade tiramisu was 10/10.
Service is excellent. I'm a vegan and they made accommodations for me by leaving dead pig out of my yummy pasta dish, and replacing with beautiful mushrooms. So, that was nice. I think they could use a few vegan options, as the future is vegan as we all can figure out by now. Terrific wine list. Service is very top. Thank you for your efficient and knowledgeable service. Always a fun night there!
Eat there all the time find them very indifferent
The waiters could have been a bit more helpful in explaining the electronic menu.
Great neighborhood restaurant and covid friendly outdoor patio. The additions of heat lamps a big plus.
We were not rushed and had great food and service! Great outdoor dining!
Very good. Will be back on our next visit to NYC. Highly recommend
I'm picky. I'd go back. Eggplant appetizer was particularly delicious. Staff very professional.
So wonderful! We’re treated so well.
Everything was great it wasn’t busy so got great service and my fish was fresh and delicious
A bit of a slow start, service-wise, but everything was delicious and fresh. Our waiter suggested an excellent wine to substitute the one we chose but wasn't available. A really nice outdoor setting, so hopefully they'll have heaters as we approach cooler temps.
Excellent birthday dinner experience. All 5 of us loved the food, service and ambience.
Amazing service and food. Did not have to wait for our table and I will be going back ASAP. Thank you to this staff for making our night memorable!
