“Very nice food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

We ate here some time ago and the food especially the pizzas were really great. Everything was good except for the environment. The smell and sight of the trash from the sea is a bit turn off. They put up a sign, "Snail Food" here to indicate the serving could be slow, but it is worth it.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Fantastic food in a good location, we ate here about 6 times in a week. Sometimes certain food wasn't available, due to the humidity and the dough not rising but this is KK. The food starts at 18.30, so get there early (18.15) if you don't want to wait too long.

“Ran out of Stock”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

It's very disappointing to have your heart set on a couple of certain dishes and when you arrive at restaurant an hour after they open to be told they are nearly out of everything including your favourite choices does not go well .

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

The good: Gusto has great food! Definitely try the tuna carpaccio, eggplant parmigiana, pizza, pasta with mussels, and rib eye steak. All were delicious! Service was good, but very slow as there is only one waitress and only one chef! Just relax, the food is worth it!

The bad: (which, by the way, has nothing to do with Gusto's) When we arrived, there was an awful smell coming off of the ocean, until towards the end of the meal when the breeze came. Also, if you need to use the toilet, you will need to use the public ones which are FILTHY and you have to pay Rm0.30. Bring your own tissues and wet wipes/hand sanitizer as there is no toilet paper or soap.

“Yum Yum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Absolutely delicious authentic food. The pasta tasted like it was home made. Loved it, wish I could eat there again! Keep up the good work! Nice setting on the waterfront.
