I had the best ravioli in NYC! My friend who was visiting said " I could have eaten bread and the pasta sauce." Excellent food. Worth a visit for anyone looking for great Italian food.

We've entered the Gusto restaurant by chance, did know anything about them before. We enjoyed everything! The food was excellent and the service was the same. We'll be back for sure again!!!

A Very Pleasant Surprise

I recently had a light dinner there, not knowing much about it, except that I walk by it often, and is generally pretty packed. Between 2 of us, we ordered (3) small plates and a dessert and the portions were perfect for a substantial but light dinner. The ravioli (filled w/ ricotta and egg), beet salad, and grilled octopus were all equally delicious. Usually you end up with a dish you enjoyed more than the others but this was not the case here. I'll definitely be going back.

My family and I have eaten at Gusto many times when we've travelled to NYC to see family. All dining experiences have been nothing short of superb. The space, service & above all the food has been some of the finest culinary experiences we have had the fortune to experience! I know there was a short time when Chef Montiel was gone and some have written negatively about their experiences during this time frame. Fortunately he has returned with incredible enthusiasm, creativity and GUSTO!

Gusto offers lovely atmosphere and excellent service, but most of all great food that you will talk about even after dinner.

I went to Gusto last night for the first time and am ecstatic that I found it!!! It was the most pleasant dining experience I've had in a while. Friendly, efficient service and fantastic food. They also have a fabulous bar that lured us in as we attempted to leave the restaurant. We ended up staying for two more drinks. If you haven't already been, you've got to try it! My new favorite place in the Village.

One of the best neighborhood spots in the West Village!

Food is excellent, always in season, & beautifully presented. Gusto underwent a chef change in summer, but I hear that the former chef, Saul Montiel, is back in the kitchen. I've noticed a marked improvement since! Don't be intimidated by the fancy décor- staff is friendly & the atmosphere relaxed. Gusto has a unique ability to suit all occasions: I've come dressed up for a show; or shown up in jeans & tee. Rest assured, one will not feel out of place in either, as Gusto is filled w/ a mix of faithful regulars & ppl in for a special celebration. My faves: malfatti, pumpkin gnocchi, the meatballs (!), & grilled octopus - a Gusto specialty! Also, Gusto's brunch is the Village's best kept secret! There's a prix fixe for $16.95: includes 2 courses, pastries, & choice of a bellini/bloody mary!

Top Notch Neighborhood Italian

To me Gusto is a perfect neighborhood restaurant - cozy, relaxed but still kinda sexy and fun. A great vibe. I've eaten here every few months since they opened and the food has always been consistent. The artichokes and grilled octopus are delicious. Anything fried or anything pasta rocks, too. The staff is friendly. Good place to eat at the bar too. Outdoor seating. I mean what's not to like?
