After a disastrous failed booking at another establishment we were faced with trying to obtain a table for 7 on a Saturday night with 30 mins notice. Enter the shining knights and their ladies at Gusto. Yes we had to wait 30 mins but no problem. The atmosphere was bright and lively and seemingly all the staff had been made... More

We visited early January. I was suprised how busy it was even on a week night. So booking on a weekend is essential. Relaxed atmosphere, very big inside, waiters leave you to get on with your night, but if you need assistance are more than happy to help. To start I had smoked salmon, very nice! My partner had meatballs... More

This was my first visit in about 3 years and I was very pleasantly surprised. We went along on a very busy Monday evening (many others taking advantage of the excellent 40% discount offer) and enjoyed a girlie catch up with good food and service. My mushroom risotto starter was very good and was followed by a delicious lamb cacciatore.... More

I have visited this restaurant a few times before, however this visit will be the last and was very disappointing. Upon ordering our starters arrived promptly, however this is where the sharp service ended. Had to wait a while for our starters to be cleared, then a long wait for the main course to arrive. When the main course arrived... More

Our first visit last night & will not be our last. Parking available outside. The decor is lovely, very nice chilled back ground music playing & a great ambiance. Good temperature in the restaurant too. We sat having drinks at the bar first, barman was pleasant and offered a tab. Amiable greeting by staff, told not to rush as our... More

We visited Gusto tonight for our first time in about a year. Have always loved the restaurant but tonight our experience was even better than usual. We started with cocktails at the bar - asked the barman for recommendations on a choice of drinks. He had no hesitation in helping and suggesting ideas. Cocktails were lovely. We got seated at...

Went here with a ex-workmate Quickly seated and drinks ordered. Ambience was good and restaurant about 1/3 full with a mixture of businesspeople, couples and a well behaved group of schoolchildren and their teachers. We chose from the set lunch menu, both choosing the cauliflower & onion soup followed by pizzas. The soup was delicious and pizzas fantastic. Service was... More

We have dined here a few times on different days, we have always had great service and the food is consistently nice, I particularly like the low lighting and ambiance of the restaurant

Style served in the heart of Yorkshire. In the leafy Leeds suburb of Cookridge sits a 200-year old Olive tree, providing the perfect backdrop to the timeless elegance of Gusto. Add to that a superb wine and cocktail list and you'll get a real flavour of Italy combined with proper Yorkshire class.
