Diner Reviews
  • "Gustoso proved to be a winner. Four of us, including two teenage sons, picked this little gem about an hour before eating, early evening and were rewarded with a first class meal. Service was excellent, warm, friendly and knowledgeable. A perfect white wine recommendation was matched by delicious food and an atmosphere reminiscent of a local eatery. Just what we were after on a 2-day break in London. We would not hesitate in returning to this restaurant in the future and heartily recommend it."

  • "I have been to Gustoso perhaps 10 times, and that's because this is a lovely local restaurant that serves excellent food in a very relaxed ambience. "
    dined on 14/04/2014
  • "We chose Gustoso Ristorante & Enoteca based on the other people's reviews. We were not disappointed. Although the place was packed, the service was friendly and efficient. The food was delicious but a little salty for our tastes."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "I went for dinner with a friend on a Thursday evening. We shared some Bruschetta as starter, which were delicious - perhaps the pesto a bit on the bland side. We had different pasta dishes as main, which were excellent and also the selection of desserts was great. Ambience was good as we arrived and improved further as more customers arrived during the evening, creating a nice buzz. There was a relaxed atmosphere and service was friendly and attentive. With the 15% off food it was great value for money, but even without the offer we would go again."
    dined on 10/04/2014
  • "When you walk in the place has such a great look and feel to the place. The atmosphere is just perfect for a resturant. It was relaxed but had a nice evening buzz about the place. The food was pretty top notch and for the price it was excellent! I would 100% recommend it. We're still talking about how great it was 2 days after going!"
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "Food was ok but not worth the price. £17 for a sirloin steak which was poorly seasoned and absolutely tiny! I booked it because of the 20% off food but we were told we would only get the discount if we ordered two courses which we hadn't planned on having. Felt a bit like blackmail! The restaurant staff said that toptable stipulates this in the small print, but actually I went back and double-checked and nowhere does the booking page stipulate that this offer is conditional. I'm not sure that the restaurant could have got away with it, but I didn't want to make a fuss. I won't be going back - there are so many other fantastic Italian restaurants in London with better food at similar or lower prices."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "Have been to this restaurant a few times now. The food is great! If you're looking for something tasty but in a restaurant where you can be yourself, you're not sat 2 inches from the next diners but still looks fresh, modern and smart go here!"
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "Another enjoyable meal at this consistently good neighbourhood restaurant. It has firmly established itself as a favourite with the locals in this part of SW1."
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "The food is always fresh, very tasty and their menu is dynamic. One night fresh fish, one night chicken...the menu is very good. Soups of the day are fresh, innovative and lovely. My wife and go here 2-3 times per month and always want more."
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "We enjoyed a lovely family meal with wonderful music and perfect lighting. The atmosphere was well-gauged by the restaurant staff and our waiters were very attentive. The 15% off food TopTable deal doesn't make much of a dent in the bill (especially if you have a bottle of wine or two), but we didn't feel hard-done-by in terms of prices. Highly recommended, and just an 8-10 minute walk from Victoria Station."
    dined on 01/04/2014
  • "First visit for our guests who really liked the food. Good ambiance set by the staff and service "just right". Wine selection a bit expensive relative to the quality being the only negative. Discount on booking and/or the set lunches prices option help value for money for food. Would recommend and believe it offers the best food in the Victoria/Pimlico area."
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "Gustoso excels itself. A small menu but specials on the board ensure variety. Wine exceptional and good value, too."
    dined on 03/04/2014
  • "Like Sardinia itself-an isle of joy full of great things to eat & drink. In Gustoso’s case an island of consistently fabulous food & wine much needed in an SW1 ocean bare of decent restaurant-business accounts seemingly not caring for them! It’s also fabulously affordable- no need to rely on expenses here. The set menu is a delicious delight - a generous serving of mozzarella, & ripe plump plum tomatoes served at a perfect room temperature, followed by perfectly grilled swordfish - meaty, moist and treated with respect. Make sure to have the bread basket too-a grand selection. The service is a warm & friendly whilst the wine list has something for all. Highly recommended and obviously going from strength to strength-grazie mille to all."
    dined on 03/04/2014
  • "Off the beaten track, but all the better for that. The evening we went turned out to be a Sardinian-themed evening, so cannot comment on the regular menu, but we really enjoyed the food. However, since the menu included one glass of wine with each of the three courses, we found ourselves ordering by the glass as well, which will have bumped up the bill. Will definitely try it again."
    dined on 27/03/2014
  • "I was very pleasantly surprised by how good the food is at Gustoso. This is not just another Italian restaurant; it's a high quality, foodie restaurant, tucked away in Victoria/Pimlico. I am a big fan of Sardinian food and wine, and Gustoso delivers beautifully fresh and faithful Sardo dishes alongside more general Italian food. I've have now been twice, and the recent visit was for a business lunch for 6 of us. The service and food was spot on. Good value too, I think I will become a regular."
    dined on 27/03/2014
  • "Booked at late notice for a business lunch. Excellent food in what can be an expense account mediocrity black hole of an area. Special mention to the wonderful near liquid burrata and the meltingly delicious lamb ravioli. I'm going back next week for my own pleasure!"
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "A most enjoyable meal. I was glad to see one or two of my old favourites back on the menu.. The food is always well cooked and the staff friendly and welcoming. The tables are on the small side and it can get very noisy but those are minor gripes."
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "We have eaten here several times and we love it.....its a little gem of a place, tucked away in a side street of Victoria. Always friendly, superb food, love the wine......we also eat at their sister restaurant-a little more formal but also lovely..... Highly recommended Claire and Neil"
    dined on 27/03/2014
  • "Sunday lunch. 3 courses, all good simple food. Well priced and efficient unobtrusive service."
    dined on 23/03/2014
  • "I booked this restaurant on the strength of an online review and didn't regret it al all. The service was welcoming and friendly and the food was delicious and good value. We all had the set lunch menu and thoroughly enjoyed it. We highly recommend the bread basket as the choice of different Italian breads was a amazing. The meal was a meeting of very old friends and we loved the fact that we were able to have a leisurely lunch, with no loud music so we could chat for ages. This made us linger, have after lunch drinks, and enjoy the occasion. We would all happily return for our next reunion. This restaurant is only 5 minutes walk from Victoria."
    dined on 15/03/2014
  • "My wife and I booked Gustoso for dinner after a day out in London. It's very convenient for Victoria although not too easy to find. The table for two was right in the middle of the room so it wouldn't be any good for a romantic occasion. Although the menu was a little limited, our choices could not be faulted, especially the mains of salmon and the mixed fried fish with both portions being very generous. The value for money was quite exceptional."
    dined on 19/03/2014
  • "This is a restaurant just as they should be: friendly, warm and most of all, reliably delicious Italian food. It's one of my favourites in London."
    dined on 18/03/2014
  • "I was not impressed by any aspect of this restaurant. I have eaten in fair more spectacular places and was left feeling underwhelmed."
    dined on 12/03/2014
  • "This was the second time I'd been there and the fourth time my companion had - we have never been disappointed. It is excellent."
    dined on 15/03/2014
  • "Very nice restaurant and delicious food - just a little difficult to find the location!"
    dined on 13/03/2014
  • "A catch up lunch with a former colleague turned into a more special occasion with excellent food and discrete but effective service at Gustoso. Excellent starters followed by a perfect sole meunière. I'd be very happy to go there again. This is a little gem halfway between Victoria and St. James's Park tube stations."
    dined on 12/03/2014
  • "Slightly off the beaten track but very accessible, this Enoteca style bistro is fast becoming one of our favourite local restaurants. Great Italian food, made from fresh produce. It offers exactly what you would expect. Great selection of Italian wines, with some served by the glass/carafe. Would love to see even more of them offered by the glass. Would recommend this to anyone looking for authentic Italian food."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "Thriving and deserves it. Well worth a visit. Good wine list as well as delicious, freshly cooked food."
    dined on 03/03/2014
  • "I had pan seared salmon with balsamic reduction, was served over lovely spinach...wife had yummy ravioli sand our salads were brilliant, fresh and good price...dark chocolate,gelato ended the perfect night..."
    dined on 03/03/2014
  • "This is a very friendly neighbourhood Italian restaurant. I have dined here often, for lunch and dinner, and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, the staff are friendly and the atmosphere is just right, being warm and friendly. My friends who have dined with me have all really enjoyed it too. It is a very welcome addition to an area that is not very well served by restaurants."
    dined on 02/03/2014
  • "We've been to Gustoso a few times as we live locally and we always enjoy it. The ambience is very nice and the food is good quality Italian food. The pastas with crab and clams are quite good, as are most of the starters. Not sure about the mains as we don't normally go for them. Service is friendly but courteous. Recommended."
    dined on 02/03/2014
  • "Came for a business lunch and was very pleased with service and delicious food."
    dined on 24/02/2014
  • "Beautiful restaurant and the service to match! Would certainly go again."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "Off the beaten track in residential Victoria, this is a great restaurant ideal for social dining. Also, since Victoria has so few authentic restaurants for business dining, this is perfect for meeting clients etc."
    dined on 21/02/2014
  • "nice food and quite pleasant atmosphere but price is so expensive"
    dined on 18/02/2014
  • "A lovely Italian restaurant hidden behind Vauxhall Bridge Rd near to Victoria Station. Very accommodating, efficient unobtrusive service and very good fresh food at good value. Worth looking it up."
    dined on 16/02/2014
  • "Gustoso is the right place to have a quiet dinner and the possibility to sit down and talk with your friends. The place is friendly and relaxing. Our food was a bit hit and miss: tagliolini al granchio were fairly good, while the linguine alle vongole average. As far as appetizers we were happy to have followed the advice about the special of the day with sardinian ham. Overall a pleasant and relaxing dinner."
    dined on 11/02/2014
  • "There was a group of 7 of us out, we had a thoroughly great time, the staff were fantastic and the service was swift, yet not rushed. The food is great, they often have specials and the menu offers a lot of choice. Would most definitely go there again."
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "It comes as a bit of a surprise to find this buzzy place in a quiet backwater but it has been a welcome addition to the ranks of neighbourhood restaurants and is always full of locals."
    dined on 10/02/2014
  • "Elegimos el restaurante porque estaba bien puntuado por toptable y fue un acierto total. Además hablan español!!"
