Went there to round off a business trip with colleagues but what was supposed to have been a pleasant evening was spoiled by terrible and slow service. We waited 1 hour before getting our starters, which of course didn't come at the same time. Then we waited 1 hour before the main dishes, which also were served randomly and two... More

This is considered an upscale restaurant. The food is nice. Mango pie was delicious. Crab and cheese stuffed pasta was delicious. Bread was not warm and stale.The service by wait staff was a little lacking. Food was delivered quickly and a "bon appetit!" but had to ask for utensils. No follow up for more water.

Visited Gusto today and the food was exceptionally good. I have visited a number of restaurants in Saint Petersburg and Gusto is near the top. Good value for money and good service.

We were really impressed by the restaurant. Cosy interiors, professional and friendly service, reasonable prices, good wines and, most important, great food. Tasteful presentation, everything we chose (pasta, meat, fish) was simply delicious. We make sure to come back, and not once, until we try the entire menu.

This restaurant was a recommendation from a colleague and I am very grateful for it! Everything that was presented to us, from the bread basket to the cheapest bottle of red, was extremely tasty, well presented and served by pleasant and efficient staff. I hope to return!

Italian cooking with the hallmark of our famous Italian head chef Fabrizio Fattuci is what makes Gusto. But that's not all. Gusto is an Italian restaurant in the heart of St Petersburg, which combines the classic and the cosy, style and simplicity, and of course friendly service - all rare signs of great taste!And the word "gusto" means exactly this - "taste". Our menu has already become legendary around the city. Roman rabbit with artichoke and pecorino cheese, beetroot risotto with gorgozola ice-cream, cappelaci with duck, ricotta sauce and red wine caramel...... head chef Fabrizio has travelled extensively around Italy, and in every region picked up new skills, new aromas, and new tastes, all of which he magically combined to create the menu for GustoWe also take special pride in our vinoteque. This is the biggest wine storage system in St Petersburg, allowing us to serve any wine on our list by the glass. And on our cosy summer terrace, just a stone's throw from Nevsky Prospekt, you can quietly sip a cappuccino with some mago tart or panna cotta with juicy forest berries.Another unique feature of Gusto is Apartment Number 2 - a private area for guests, where you can enjoy all the advantages of a top class home-style restaurant.
