“Unbelievable quality for such a small price”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

I have literally just got home from visiting this lovely little restaurant with my best friend and my 2 children! Upon entering we were made to feel right at home by the friendly staff, we visited at 4pm so we were the only customers in but it was perfect. Our orders were taken and within 30 mins the food was brought to our table, piping hot and smelling divine! The children's meals were huge, my youngest had spag bol with chips and my oldest had pepperoni pizza and chips (half a medium pizza on his plate) my friend got the Apollo arrabiata and myself the steak we shared the veg and chips, we all barely spoke to each other because the food was just irresistible! All in all for what we had and a bottle of house white wine and 3 soft drinks it came to £40 which is excellent considering for chain Italian restaurants is cost £20 extra! My boys were fussed over by the staff and got extra lollipops as we decided to skip dessert! I can't wait to visit again with my husband! It's located perfectly as it's away from the main hustle and bustle of the town centre! I honestly can't recommend Gusto Vero more than I have, everyone in Sunderland should visit!

“Wonderful food, please try”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Gusta Vero is so underrated, the food is absolutely gorgeous and excellent value for money! Please try the specials menu as well as this is so varied and tasty.

If you want to spend under £50 between two people then the Happy Hour is a must.

The food is cooked to perfection and boy does it taste authentic!

“Love it!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I come here on every special occasion, we just love it here. The owner can't do enough for you, it's so lovely. They are over welcoming which is great. The food is to die for. I wish they were in a better location and more people knew about this place as it's a little diamond. I wish them the best of luck in continuing good service. We will continue to visit. Amazing! :)

“High Quality Food”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Gusto Vero delivers an amazing choice of meals and drinks, I would highly recommend people to try it out, I would say they are the best Italian restaurant in Sunderland Town. They do delivery's to your home too, which not many restaurants do. There food is always cooked to perfection, I am a regular customer at Gusto Vero. All Staff are lovely and have excellent manners. Why not try it out, it's well worth it.

“Lovely Staff”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Gusto Vero staff are very friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The Risotto was lovely and they did not skimp on the seafood there was loads. Only real down point was a disappointing starter. The garlic bread had too much garlic on it. Apart from that had a great night.
