Nice setting, however completely missed the mark on creating true Italian food. Lacked seasoning and depth.

Took some customers for a nice meal but had no idea what a great experience it would be booking the Chefs Table. If you want your night to be a real experience I suggest you do this at least once. The food and service was perfect, pricing was surprisingly good for what I was expecting.

we went to Gusto for our dinner when in Auckland. I asked for the chefs table and that was nice. I loved the fact that the table was in the kitchen because I could see them yelling and every chef to get peoples food out. my best dish was the chocholate cake that we had last.

Visited this Restaurant for the second time last night and don't believe we'll be returning. The staff were great but the meal was not. Highly over-priced and presented in a very trendy format, this place is trying to be the ultimate in sophistication but when faced with a bill of $24 for a plate of mussels you can buy at... More

Difficult to find superlatives to describe this place. The food was delicious and our waitress could not have been more helpful. I was especially impressed by the advice given by our waitress as regards which dishes would be good for sharing - as result we were able sample a greater variety than would otherwise have been the case (and saved...

I attended a work function at Gusto recently. The food and the service were very good. The staff did their very best to keep the crowd well fed and hydrated. My only moan would've been the young girl who served us at the coffee bar. No smile, no welcoming phrase and no eye contact. It felt like she didn't want... More

A friend who knows that I like Italian recommended Gusto at Sky City's Grand Hotel (right next door to the Casino). The sign said to book via Concierge but I just went straight in and the lovely young lady on the desk found me a table in an almost empty restaurant (early Thursday evening). The House Bread came with olive... More
