    Good but I went for the dollar an ounce wine and their system was broken so that was very disappointing.

    Really disappointed in the service. It was SO obvious our server either: 1) Had a severe hangover 2) Was on the verge of quitting or getting fired 3) Hated his job,l so much, it was showing on his face and attitude He wasn’t wearing the same shirt as the rest of the server, he lacked empathy, always looked confused and lost, even when we asked a simple question as, “We booked a large party reservation and asked for a family style menu, can you please give us that menu instead of brunch?”. Every question we asked, he would respond in silence and SCURRY off to ask someone else. No apologies, no excuses, looked so dazed, so confused, it makes me wonder if they found this person off the side of the street!??? I have many more examples of what he could’ve improved on but even at the end, one gentleman had told Table 1 that gratuity is included due to it being a large party size, no problem. OUR actual server did not tell that you Table 2 and when a couple included gratuity twice, the server dumbfoundedly responded with a..confused look and again, scurried off in silence. He also did not know how to split bills, so he had to fix that mistake too. Won’t be coming back, such a disappointment.

    Positives: The food was delicious and came out very quickly. The server was very attentive at the beginning of the evening but took some time to get our bill, which I understand because it became busier throughout our visit. Negatives: The tables are SO close together that it feels like you're eating dinner with strangers lol. It kind of ruined any "date night" vibes. I understand they're trying to fit as many seats in as possible, but even a few inches of room between two-tops would be nice.

    The food at Gusto is one of the best in the city. The mushroom pasta is to die for! But anything I’ve ordered has been fantastic. My favourite restaurant!!

    The food is good and a great environment. Service was fast and quick. $1/oz of house wine and the patio are another two reasons that makes this place. A little too loud to carry conversations especially if the roof is closed. We had the risotto balls, mushroom bruschetta, and mushroom pasta. All really good, but not the best.

    Dinner was delicious. The kale salad and (mushroom pasta) mafalde ai funghi is the best in the city. Wonderful staff took care of us Saturday night. You got to eat here‼️

    Can be a bit loud at times so if you're trying to talk, it may be difficult unless you're shouting at each other. But the food is oh so worth it!

    Reservations were requested to be on the rooftop patio and said they would be fulfilled, although they were not... i was quite disappointed as that was the main reason i had chosen Gusto 101. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was decent, service was average. In the future, i will hope they keep their word.

    I heard very good reviews about the restaurant and decided to try it for myself. I was disappointed to say the least. My daughter and I had the diavola pizza, ravioli and mushroom bruschetta. The bruschetta and pizza were fairly good but no way was it worth the money. The ravioli was very bad. It tasted like canned chef boyardee. The location and service were good but the food was not up to par.

    Some close friends and I went for the weekend brunch. We were seated on the upstairs roof patio which was lovely, but very hot. First we were seated in a non shaded area and the heat was almost unbearable, but our servers were able to accommodate us and move the group over to a shaded area! All of the food was amazing. As well as the coffee, soooo good. I definitely want to come back for more of the Uova in Camicia (with olive oil hollandaise!!).

    Gusto is truly one of the best restaurants in Toronto! The service was amazing - the servers were always making sure we had everything we needed just at the right time, and the food was, as always, absolutely delicious.

    We were coming in from Chicago to enjoy brunch at Gusto 101 for Canada Day. After receiving a few emails from the restaurant stating that if we were more than 15 minutes late they would release our table and they wouldn't seat us until 60% of our party was present, we received an email less than 24 hours before our reservation that they were closing that day due to excessive heat (the high was predicted to be 85 degrees Fahrenheit). We were disappointed to say the least.
