Had a great casual dinner here. Ate in & brought a bottle of wine(BYOB). Pizza & antipasto salad were delicious & the hardworking waitress could not have been friendlier. A great find !

This small pizzeria has the best pizza, sandwiches, and wrap! This small neighborhood "hole-in-the wall" is clean and offers friendly staff. Definitely worth going if you want someplace off the beaten path.

I have been working in the area and have been coming here for lunch about twice a week. The sandwiches are really good. I had a hamburger, hoagie and wrap so far. Today I decided to get a salad and it was delicious. The prices are reasonable and the service is good. One day I will have to try the... More

A great BYOB in Center City Philly. The white pizza is fantastic. Full of goat cheese and comes out hot and ready to munch. My favorite however is the home made burgers. They are cooked on a open wood flame and are the very best!! In town. Stop by with a great bottle of red vine and enjoy a great... More

WE <3 GUSTO! My husband is a pizza fanatic and he claims he keeps a pizza journal in his head! Needless to say, we've scoped out several pizza/sub spots in Philadelphia. This one has delicious steaks, subs, and pizza with no fuss with the decor. It has a few tables for people who want to eat there instead of take... More

What distinguishes a real Philadelphia steak sandwich from the Imposters served in other cities is the quality of the meat and the bread. Gusto knows how it should be done. Pizzas also excellent. Owner-run.

Shame the wine bottles on a long shelf are only for display, because it as an accumulation of some of the finest wines I have seen side by side in one place, since the bar at the Gramercy Tavern in NYC, "They're all empty"., the cheerful waitress told us "bottles the owner has drunk over many years". Meanwhile, this modest... More

Stopped here on a whim and a visit near Drexel. Our kids ask to go back for their hot out of the oven thin crust pizza. A cut above!

This is one of the best pizza BYOBs that we've come across in Philly. The pizzas are freshly made and are truly delicious! The prices are great too. You can either sit in and bring a bottle of wine, or do the take out. Also, students get 10% discount!
