    The service was fantastic as usual but the food was not up to standards. Very disappointed as this is one of our favorite restaurants. Hope the quality and portion size goes back to what it was before.

    Party of 4. We enjoyed our time. Service was attentive, friendly and helpful. Food was great except one meal the lasagne special's noodles were a little crunchy. The other two pasta dishes were excellent. The mixed green salad was a treasure. The sea bass was very well prepared. Desserts were well received by all and included the Tiramisu, Italian donut, Pears and Olive Oil cake. Would definitely go back when in Toronto. Good selection on the menu. Only problem with atmosphere was the low level of lighting made it difficult to see the menu, but perhaps that is more my old eyes. Cellphone light did the trick in this regard. There is lots of parking in the general area. Was a fun and enjoyable evening.

    Loved the atmosphere and the decor on the first floor. The covered porch upstairs is also great. Service and host were fabulous! Good menu and great drinks list!

    I've been here a bunch of times before and this time I was less impressed. To start, my friend wanted the shrimp pasta and they said they were out of shrimp, so that was slightly annoying. Next, I ordered a whiskey sour only to have it taste only like bar lime and no whiskey. They had to remake the drink twice for me before they got it semi drinkable. Then, when we got our entrees of the mushroom pasta and sausage pizza they were both cold. At that point, we had so many complaints we just ate the cold food but it was less than enjoyable. All things considered, I won't be dining there anytime soon. It's also ridiculous that you can't book reservations past 6pm. Our only option was 9pm, they don't do reservations after 6pm, but can book for 9pm. Makes no sense to wait for 2 hours when you walk-in.. Lots of other great italian spots downtown that I would choose over Gusto.

    Service was amazing. Unfortunately, due to the weather condition they were very tight on schedule with seating. Management and staff were informative and handled the situation very well. The food and drinks were very good. Definitely will come back!

    A bit cold on the upstairs level. A few patio slabs could use a bit of leveling. My table rocked pretty badly every time someone walked by.

    You should not be seating the upstairs if the heating does not work. We shivered the entire time as we drank our cold bottle of red wine. We asked the server right away if it would be getting warmer and he said yes not to worry. It didn't. It got worse. The downstairs was full and not ONCE did we see a manager or anyone touching tables to apologize for the conditions. People shouldn't have to wear hats and jackets, or at least should be apologized to. We noticed that slowly all the staff were moving downstairs because it was full and we were just left upstairs to finish our meals and get out. Now I'm waiting to get a call back for being overcharged $30. It's a shame we used to always reccomend gusto and we might rethink doing that.

    Restaurant didn’t have our reservation when we arrived even though we had a confirmation. We waited 10-15 minutes until was made available.

    Service and food are good. Main dish took a bit longer but thats still okay. We were on 2nd floor and the heaters were off/not working. And it was -10 outside. It was quite cold the entire dinner.

    Way too loud which led to the need to shout to be heard. Too dark which made it hard to see the menu. The food tasted good but the portions were tiny and it was overpriced. I had a side, a main, and dessert and left hungry. I would not come back.

    The food was amazing. The mushroom pasta lives up to the hype, as does the grilled octopus. A great place to take my boyfriend on his 29th birthday on our last night in Toronto.

    I ordered steak rare and eggs sunny side up. The steak came out completely grey, except for the middle slice which was medium to well done. When I Asked the waitress to have a rare steak cooked, we waited 5 minutes, only to have another server come back and ask me why I wasn’t accepting the meal — putting it back on the table for review. (Which was only slightly socially awkward.) I told her the meat wasn’t rare (which should have been obvious). It took another ten minutes to get the meal, at which point everyone else was done. The steak was rare but the egg was still rubbery and well done.

    Very nice place to have a meal with friends or a family. Delicious food and good Italian wine. Very friendly service. The place is more trendy and laud, great for a night out but less suitable for an intimate gathering.
