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.

Superb small restaurant. Outstanding food and service. We came before it opened and when they opened we were seated immediately. They take reservations for parties of 6 or more. When we left people were lined up far down the sidewalk (so get there early or reserve your party of six). My only knock is that like most restaurants their cheapest red wine by the glass is 10 bucks. Restaurants unfortunately think that they need to mark up their wine 400%. They don’t, $7 should be the max for by the glass house wine.

We went to this restaurant for the first time last year and loved it. Had to go back again. The food is amazing and we have eaten in Italian restaurants all over the world. The eggplant and the fish dishes were unbelievably good. Will go back again before we return home. The staff are friendly as well. Don’t miss this Florida treasure ?

We one again had a terrific meal and experience at Gusto last night with friends. When we come back to Cape Coral for the winter we always look forward to this spot. Vince owner/chef and his entire team is simply fantastic. This is still the best restaurant in the area. If you are visiting do yourself a favor and go. Every item on the menu is excellent. Looking forward to our next visit. TREMENDOUS!!!!!!

Don’t let the look of the outside fool you. Our group had five different entrees and everyone was amazed at how good their dinner was. The service was as high quality as the food. Highly recommend!

Not sure how this place garners 5 stars on trip advisor. Makes me want to rethink the ratings on this app. We arrived the strip mall they are in is sketchy as hell. We were seated. Immediately informed that their so called signature Bolognese sauce was not available. Two of the people in our party ordered the Veal Piccata. More like salty mushroom piccata as they were hard pressed to find the veal in their dish. I ordered the Pork Milanese. Obviously the oil they cooked it in was not hot enough. It was a greasy mess. I am writing this hours after our meal and I still can’t get the greasy foul after effects out of my mouth. Horrible experience!

We had the most wonderful anniversary dinner tonight at Gusto’s. We both had the Tortellacci and I cannot praise it highly enough. Melanie was the perfect server as well.

We arrived by 5:10 and there were only two tables left, but were seated right away. We were offered bread that was freshly baked and right out of the oven. It was amazing! We started with an order of Calamari that was excellent - my husband especially liked the peppers in it. He ordered the Linguini Pescatore which he said was good, but thought it could use more scallops (he only found one in the dish). I ordered the special, Lobster Ravioli which was delicious. As the venue is small and everybody arrived at one time, when people came in afterwards they had to wait, which made them congregate at the front entrance (we sat at booth right by door). My husband did not like having people standing over him while he ate. The hostess attempted to get them to move to the back, but there was not much room there either. All in all, good food and a good experience.

Fine dining, excellent food, fast and courteous service. A must try!! Small restaurant, so I would suggest getting there early. We went off-season, and the place was packed in an hour. Proteins can be swapped, I had veal marsala and a side of pasta. Delicious!!

We, wife and I, live 3 blocks away and always bring visiting family. My daughter in law commented to me that the food here was better than what she had in a recent trip to Italy. We love to eat here.

They open at 5:00 pm and when we arrived at 4:45 there was a line already. Once inside, there were not many tables, so we were glad we got there when we did. Mark was our waiter and did an excellent job. We started with the calamari and the crostini. The calamari were cooked to perfection and had a nice accompanying sauce. The crostini were so delicious with tomatoes that were fresh and flavorful. The food arrived right out of the kitchen hot. I had the penne and it was perfectly al dente. My husband had the Michelangelo. The seafood was excellent, melted in the mouth, and he said “Just outstanding, I’m in heaven, this is just so good”. I wish we were in Cape Coral longer - we would have definitely returned!

We met with another couple when staying in Fort Myers over Christmas. I always make a trip to Gusto Cucina when in the area. The food is amazing and the service is excellent. We had the Calamari Vincenzo to start which was very good. I had the Salmon Gusto and it was delicious! My friends had the Chicken parmesan and the Fettucini Alfredo with Chicken and Broccoli. Everyone loved their meals. I will definitely be back!

Dinner for 4 of us. All were very happy. Delicious chicken parmigiana, crispy, hot great seasoning and flavor. So good. Bread to start with the right balance of butter and salt. Ended with tiramisu and canolli cake. They were good. Small space and older crowd. They knew what they were doing. My very picky 19 year old loved the pasta! You will not regret the visit. Cost was 137.00 for 4 with a 25% tip.
