My husband and I had brunch at Gusto this past weekend and it was excellent! We ordered from the prix fixe menu where you get an appetizer, entree, and an hour of unlimited breakfast cocktails for $22. Such a great deal! The food was wonderful, service was great, and the restaurant itself is beautiful!

I'd never have imagined such a nice restaurant on Greenwich Avenue below 14th Street, but this one is a great little find. Not only do their excellent bartenders know how to make lesser known drinks like a Salzerac, but the food is really top notch for any neighborhood. I was told the chef trained with Mario Batali, and after tasting the food, I wasn't surprised. The classic Italian dishes had a subtle nuance and sophistication that really impressed me. I'm sad the Malfatti is no longer on the menu as it was one of my favorites, but any of their pastas will make you glad you weren't carb counting. They also have a great raw bar worth sampling. The decor is hard to peg. It's restrained and elegant with a slightly rustic, retro clubby feel. I'd love to own any one of their vintage mid-century crystal chandeliers.

Had dinner this evening in a group of seven. Across the board the appetizers, salads, main courses, and desserts were competent, though none worth going out of your way for. That said, the waitstaff were welcoming and helpful, and the bartender poured a mean Negroni, substituting Punt y Mes for the usual vermouth, as requested. All in all, a competent, neighborhood Italian restaurant, but not a "destination".

This is a smallish restaurant. Well appointed. I was surprised that it wasn't real busy on a Saturday night. We rarely order pasta when we go out, but this night it was baby octopus, lasagna and orichette with sausage and rapini. Classic sicilian with a bottle of Mirabile Menfri brought the bill to $120 plus tip. Friendly hostess, good food, good atmosphere. Our waiter was a bit off his game.

I give this restaurant an average rating because as we sat outside, the sidewalk was tilted under our table to the point that everything spilled out of our glasses and we felt like we were teetering on the edge of a cliff. Seriously? If the owners would focus more on a good dining experience rather than trying to serve as many people possible - this place might be busier.
