we had dinner with friends who made the choice. I had read some of the reviews and had reservations, and unfortunately they were before place. we had all pasta dinner. the servings were good, but unfortunately the taste was average. best. the service member who took care of us could no longer be distracted. we had a drink when we had set ourselves and that was not a offer for anything else, whether it drinks or dessert from that time. if there is another option, I would suggest that would be a better option. disappointment for the peculiarities if they do not know what is happening with their business.

We had dinner here with friends who made the choice. I had read some of the reviews and had reservations and unfortunately they were spot on. We all had pasta for dinner. The serves were of a good size but unfortunately the flavour was average...at best. The service staff member that looked after us could not have been more disinterested. We had one drink when we sat down and that was it no offer for anything else be it drinks or dessert from that point onwards. If there is another option i would suggest that would be a better option. Disappointing for the owners if they are not aware of what is happening to their business.

We've been to Gusto a few times and it's not a bad place for a quick meal. The pizzas are really nice, wood fired and very traditional. Pasta serves are generous too. Service though is a bit slow, when we ate here with a group of 15 it was super slow to get food out and the staff seemed a bit disorganized. It out a dampener on our group catch up.

I only come here for the gnocchi. Best in town thus far.... if i found better gnocchi i would go there. Service is always below average, randomly forgetting something, mumbling through orders, hanging around the table, talking to locals and chatting to regulars outside on the path. Just plain uncomfortable. In one minor instance i asked for a diet coke, he came back with a coke zero. "I said this isn't Diet Coke", he said "oh we dont have it". I said "Well i dont like Zero j am sorry", he said "It's the same thing"...I explained, no its different, which is why i asked specifically for Diet Coke... he continued off laughing and just walked away. I refused to pay for it! Seen a few little arguments between two guys on a few occasions, assuming they are brothers?!, but i literally come here for the soft pillow like clouds that melt in your mouth, not the service. Some time you just have to take the amazing with the average. I am normally all about service, but literally my score is for the food downgraded by what you have to put up with when you get it.

I don't think this place even deserves a rating of 1 out of 5. Very, very poor service- I feel bad for the waiters/waitresses that actually DO a good job. Food is less than standard, no surprises there. Food tastes just as the interior looks. I really do hope that they use these negative reviews as a way of moving towards improvement. I don't like leaving bad reviews but when a place neglects taking customer orders in order to chat to their "favourite" customers, that's when it becomes unacceptable. Please improve your customer service, seriously it's so important! Don't walk past diners without asking if they're ready to order. Also, food shouldn't take an hour to arrive.. If you want to keep serving food of the same quality you should at least consider putting the prices down. I ate at this place a year ago and I can still remember the horrible experience....how sad.

Rubbish! One of our party had the $39 seafood dish: the Morton Bay bug was we'll past it - soft, mushy and smelt. Chef's reaction: "It's Good". Back comes the dish. Good lack with that strategy Chef. We won't be back!

I will give the guys credit for quick service.  We ordered two servings of tiramisu for dessert at about $15/serving. It did come in fancy glasses, but my family are not even Italian and we could have made better tiramisu than that. Given that we come for the food and not just for posh service: 1) There was very little cake in it 2) There was practically no frangelico or the taste of alcohol at all (no my family are not alco's!) 3) The cake did not seem to be pre-soaked at all or there much evidence of any preparation. Basically it was mostly just cream in a cup with some cocoa on the top.   I could have bought a large sized bottle of frangelico from Dan Murphys and made a good 4 trays of premium tiramisu dessert for the whole family for that price.   Yeah I think I will just stick to Vietnamese food from now on.  Italian food in Adelaide is way overpriced and most of it I can just make myself.
