Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Gustami is by far and away the most authentic Italian restaurant in Birmingham. Excellent food, polite and knowledgeable staff and a fair price that doesn't break the bank.

Excellent, kind, sensitive, warm and friendly service. Delicious home-made sausage with potatoes, followed by a generous portion of tiramisu. Will definitely visit again.

We stopped by Ristorante Caffe Gustami for a quick lunch yesterday, on our way home from the jewellery quarter. It’s quite a distance for us and we tend to save our visit is here for special occasions, we hadn’t been for about 9 months. If...it was closer, we would eat here every month as a treat! Two of us had parmigiana, it was clearly homemade and a taste sensation. The other two had options from the specials menu, one had a homemade sausage swirl with little roast potatoes and my husband had a penne pasta dish with saffron and courgettes-bother were absolutely delicious. Sadly, we didn’t have room for a desert after our fabulous main courses, however they all sound delicious! The ownership of the restaurant has changed ( the new owner actually used to work here), however the food is still exceptional and good value too. Looking forward to our new visit very soon.More

As many people have said please do not judge a book by its cover. It’s no oil painting from the outside but once you’re in you will find a fantastic welcome, fantastic authentic food and very reasonable prices. You can smell the food cooking from...the kitchen, it’s obviously fresh and wonderful. All the staff are extremely helpful and attentive. So much nicer eating here than the ‘fake’ Italian restaurant chains found on the high street where it’s obvious that the inflated prices are just going to pay the rent rather than going on the ingredients. Highly recommend a visit here, well done guys!More

Excellent Birmingham gem, location was unexpected however don't let the location put you off from this fantastic restaurant. I ordered the carbonara, made authentically Italian style not the fake mainstream version. Had a lovely Montepulciano d'abbruzzo to accompany with my delicious meal. My fiancée had...a wonderful mushroom tagiatelli pasta with mushroom, she was extremely satisfied. We shared delicious flatbread starter. Price was very reasonable, highly recommend all Italian food enthusiastic to attend this restaurant and give this wonderful gem a go! Definitely better then most majority of UK's Italian restaurant. Lovely and fantastic waiter, comfortable and cosy atmosphere.More

First thing noticed was the home cooking smell. The food being prepared smelled amazing. I had the focaccia, picked veg and calamari - which was crispy and thin cut with a lovely aioli. Great food, lovely environment and wonderful staff. Really enjoyed and will be...going again. Bravo!More

Absolutely fantastic lunch. Visited on Saturday lunchtime when the restaurant had just opened greeted by a lovely chap who explained specials and the menu. Had two pasta dishes and a cheesy garlic bread to share. Everything was cooked perfectly pasta was clearly homemade and made...with great care. You can tell that everyone who works there takes real pride in their business and the quality of food served for the price was amazing. There are Italian restaurant in and around Birmingham that charge a lot more and produce much less quality. Brilliant local business keep up the great work!More

Visited for the first time. Was a bit unsure about the place to be honest but at a friends request gave it a go! Honestly don’t judge a book by it’s cover. The food and service was amazing! Very reasonable priced. There were a number...of specials on the board which the waiter kindly went through. Our waiter was great and the chef came out when he had a few minutes to ask if the food was good, which it was! Defiantly going to go back to this place! Tastes much better than the Italian ‘chain’ restaurants!More
