Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came to Gusto as my partner had just been offshore for 7 weeks and was craving some pizza and we were not disappointed. On arrival without a booking they were honest in saying there would be a wait for food as it is a very small team, which was absolutely fine for us. Situated on the waterfront area we sat with a bottle of wine quite happy. We opted to share the tomato & mozzarella which was delicious and of high quality. I then had a pasta dish with a tomato based sauce, while my partner had a pizza both were good and satisfied a craving. The staff were lovely and did not rush us at all. A hidden gem in Kota Kinabalu.

Dined here with family; what a special and lovely restaurant. The owner/chef's passion for food and wine was evident in the menu and the wine selection. The pasta was perfectly done, and the giant local prawns were cooked perfectly. Two bottles of well-matched wines (after a lengthy educational discussion of the options) rounded out a very nice evening out. The location on the boardwalk near the night market meant a beautiful sunset as well. Highly recommended for a classy night out in Kota Kinabalu.

This seemed to be a run-down place with rickety plastic chairs, a seemingly dirty kitchen and hardly any staff. They don't have print or digital menus, have just written it on a board with chalk. Basic stuff like parmesan cheese powder is charged, but the owner claims that "chilli flakes, salt and pepper are free". The prices are 30% higher than average but they're nett so you don't pay the 16% service charge and tax. Basically, the owner tries to save money and cut costs wherever he can, which makes me feel like the quality of the food would also be compromised on. I decided not to eat there and went to Ferdinand's at Magellan, which turned out to be so much better!

Went here to see the sunset. Beautiful view. Stayed for dinner. I asked if the tuna was fresh. The chef came out to talk to me and showed me the fish which was yes, very fresh. I had the tuna carpaccio. It was the best tuna I have ever had (and I have had tuna all over the world). Had the truffle pizza. Could only have a few slices but the taste was lovely, especially with the chili oil. Nice ambiance. Excellent food. Chef and staff were lovely. Would go back again (and I may!). You pay for what you get for and Gusto is worth every penny. Cheers!

After 10 days in a Mountain hut on Mt Kinabalu I was dreaming of some different food! This really delivered- excellent, thin crust pizza and Italian wine. The guy is from Milan so knows what he’s doing. Best book as it seems busy

The owner has been around a while. Cooking and presentation have always been good and now there is a food and wine retail side. There is a quirky rule that only tourists can walk in. Locals have to book and discuss orders. Most beautiful serving staff in KK.

Beautiful and simply place at the Waterfront. Best Italien food in town, simply, tasty food and wine with good quality products. Me and my wife always come here to our Italien friend with his lovely local wife and the service is very friendly.

Fantastic food! I had the four cheese penne pasta. Incredible! Made fresh with hand made sauce. Best I’ve had in years. Not expensive at all. Too bad they’re not open for lunch.

Just had the most delicious freshly cooked italian food here. Sat by the water front, twinkling lights and a great meal...what could be better? The bill that's what! 200rggt for 2 mains, dessert and 3 alcoholic drinks. We obviously left a good tip. Highly recommended.

Small Authentic Italian. We visited Sabah for a few days and heard about this place. Beautiful ingredients and big portions. Small place so you need to wait a bit for food to be served. Have a great selection of wine too. Highly recommend

Tiramisù Is prepared daily fresh We also daily do test of what we carefully prepare. While very possible is to attribute your problem to something Ingested around during the day That’s what mostly happen with some customers like you that arrive here once stomach compromised because they had adventure with local food in markets etc..

We had a excellent diner a couple of days ago in this restaurant. Location and atmosphere were very enjoyable, and pasta/ pizza just excellent. You can also try the home made tiramisu, which will not fail to impress!
