The Gusto restaurant serve slow food and can taste real Italian food from the best Italian chef. No doubt!! =) 코타키나발루에서 리얼 이탈리안 음식을 맛볼 수 있는 유일한 레스토랑. 충분한 시간을 가지고 여유로운 식사를 하시길 추천합니다!

Looking forward to a good pizza, and the chef was rude to us. Also told us that we could only have 2 pizza, because this was all hi got.
