Food is super slow but the food is super good. Worth the wait. Make sure you have time before dining here as they can be very slow. The chef is an italian. He will make sure your food is perfect before serving it.

We found Gusto our second night and had to repeat. Food is amazing! Real italian food (italian chef) listening to the sea with such nice staff. Must try Rigatoni al forno, Tuna Pizza (fresh tuna) and caprese salad. Have a craving for italian? Come here!
