Whenever I come to visit family in Cape Coral we always come to Gusto’s for dinner. Reservations are a must as this place is always packed. Jessica our waitress was very friendly, service was quick, the food fantastic. Lobster Ravioli was one of the specials, my cousin and I chose that and it was amazing. It was served in a creamy red sauce. My Aunt & Uncle chose the Shrimp Scampi which was delicious (my Aunt & I split our orders so we each got to taste the others). We topped the evening off w Creme Brûlée and Spumoni Gelato. We highly recommend this place and again reservations are a must or you’ll be waiting awhile (which is worth it).

Although small, one could say intimant, the experience was positive. The four of us sat at a table in the back corner with mis-matched chairs but we had the feeling of a family dining room with chairs from all over the house brought to the table for a holiday meal. The food was excellent and it was obvious that the owners and the chef take the time to prepare your meal with care and attention to detail. This is not a place for a quick bite, rather to take your time with multiple courses from apps to salad then entree and dessert. Do not expect speed in prepartion as the entrees take time to prepare. I did see some take-out orders while we were there, but that would not do justice to the meal. On the whole, a very enjoyable meal.

We were looking for a local restaurant for good Italian food. This came up as #1 on our search. We decided to give it a try. It is not easy to find but definitely worth it. It is very small so I highly recommend reservations. They made every effort to accommodate us. The service and food were excellent. Prices are average. If we are ever in the area again, we will definitely return.
