Chose The Italian Restaurant to celebrate our daughter's 14th birthday and boy did we have a great time.I happened to mention this when making the reservation and to see birthday girl's face light up when we arrived to see balloons,banners and decorations at our table was a delight.A nice touch by the owners.The atmosphere was relaxed,informal and the intimacy of the restaurant a true pleasure.The good humor of the attentive proprietor went long way to making this such a pleasurable evening.The food was delicious,service excellent and the bill reasonable.We left with full stomachs,smiles on our faces and that warm glow that only comes when you,ve had a really,really nice evening

We rang on the off chance of a table for 4. Living in Settle, it was somewhere we had always intended to go but never managed it. There was a table available almost straight away, so off we went. The restaurant is in one of the old vaulted cellars under the shambles and very compact, but lovely. Service was efficient and the lady who served was friendly and had a little banter with customers. The food was very good, 3 had pizza, and 1 had calzone. The size and toppings were ample. What was nice, is the fact the toppings aren't the normal processed meats but appear to be proper hand cut ham and chicken. Don't expect a massively extensive menu, as the size of the restaurant would make it impossible. However there were pasta dishes and specials as well. If your looking for an intimate honest restaurant with good food I don't think you'll be disappointed.

We found this little Restaurant whilst staying in Settle in early April, the welcome and food were excellent, be warned that this is cash only so make sure you have readies and not plastic when you go, We would have enjoyed it more if it hadn't been for the obnoxious woman in a party of four at the next table who wanted everyone to hear her swearing, we would have stayed longer but paid up and left to get away from her, this was by no means the fault of the Owners but they must have been aware because all the other Diners were commenting

My wife and I decided to celebrate or 20th Wedding Anniversary with a meal at The Italian Restaurant.Living locally but having young children we seldom get out for a meal but with the kids that bit older and able to be left alone we were relishing "our" special treat.Settle has a good selection of eating places but wanting to get away from the "pub grub" places of which there are many we chose The Italian Restaurant(formally Gusto's)for its intimacy,ease of parking,proximity to centre of Settle and the re assuring reviews.We wanted to feel a sense of occasion and to be made to feel special and we were not disappointed.The delightful,intimate restaurant just heaved character and every detail had been carefully looked after.The wonderfully friendly host put us at ease immediately and being able to choose our table was a nice touch.Service was attentive,fellow diners amusing,the wine chilled(in an ice bucket at the table) and the food was fresh and absolutely delicious.The whole experience was a delight and great value for money.We are already planning our next visit.To avoid disappointment then its best to book but if you haven't then just call in...you might get lucky !!
