We had a late night reservation (9pm) and arrived right on time, we were lead to our table by the hostess but after 10 minutes had not been greeted by a server although there were 3 buzzing around the tables in our area.
The atmosphere of the restaurant is great, we enjoyed the open kitchen especially. Meals arrived in decent time but after realizing I was never asked for my preference of sidedish, flagged down the next server to walk by who happened to be the manager, I believe. His manner was short and a little off putting ("What can I do to make you happy? I can bring you potatoes, would that make you happy?").
We were both very satisfied with the food, but the service was lacklustre and disorganised.
The cheesecake, which came highly recommended, was over the top gluttonous, and contained very little actually cheesecake, mainly made up of regular chocolate cake and icing. In our opinion, overrated.
To summarise: good atmosphere, good food, overrated desserts and disappointing service.

I enjoyed my time at Gustos. The pizza was great, and it tastes just as good when heated as well! Service was great. Our waitress was called Christine W. The atmosphere was great.

Visited Gusto for lunch with my sister today on the recommendation of a lady while waiting in line to get into Costco. So glad we did. The atmosphere is very unique and service was exemplary. Our waiter Thomas was amazingly friendly and knowledgeable about the menu,our food was delicious and VERY reasonably priced. It was recommended we not turn down dessert and wow.... so glad we didn't! ! This place gets 5* from me!! Highly recommend it!!!

When we arrived the manager came directly to our table and welcomed us and advised us of the specials.

Our waitress was amazing, friendly and really made us feel at home.

The food was incredible. Pizza was the best I've ever had. We wanted to have dessert, but were too full!

The experience was so great that we planned to come back the next night to eat less and have room for their amazing cheesecake!
