My kids eat better here than anywhere in the world, including my kitchen. The meatballs are great, drinks are decent. There is also a nice wood fire smell in the restaurant ( and actually outside in the parking lot) that I find pleasant.

Yes the menu has all the right words describing each dish, but what comes to the table is just one degree better than the average diner. Pro: loved the complimentary baked garlic bulb for the yummy bread. Con: the pasta side was terrible that came with chicken piccata. They must have gotten it from the leftovers from a banquet they...

Good food, good service. I would recommend this restaurant to people wanting good Italian food at a reasonable price. They have expanded to an outdoor patio which is enclosed for winter dining.

When I started dating my husband this was a restaurant he liked to frequent since it was close to home. Food is average. Always packed so they must have a good local following. Pizza is so so. I was not blown away. Ordered the broccoli rabe and it was so salty I couldn't even eat it. I had to send... More

Met friends here for dinner. Never been here before, found the restaurant via TripAdvisor. Gusto's has a spacious dining area, and a separate bar with flat screens. The waitstaff is professional and well trained. Our waiter was perfect, did not rush us, but was at the table when we needed him. The menu is fairly expansive, and as expected for... More

Went here for dinner on a whim. My daughter had veal Marsala and I had the chicken Marsala. No choice of pasta and the pasta that came was gummy actually tasted like it sat for awhile. No salad came with the meal it had to be extra. Overall I have had much better. I won't be back
