"Magnificent food love the atmosphere and the stuff would highly recommend."

"We sat outside and it was a beautiful night. The service was attentive and efficient. The prawns with goat cheese and garlic appetizer was amazing. The beef tortellini in truffle pesto was amazing. There were a lot of items on the menu that tempted us."

"Awesome food and service my new favourite."

"My boyfriend and I went in for lunch and was greeted by the friendly staff (who I believe is the owner's daughter) and we were seated immediately. We ordered the beef carpacio and the garlic pizza marina as appetizers, and both were simple but very good. I had the tortellini as my main and it was nice, creamy and was very delicious. There was a bit of a misunderstanding with the dish that my boyfriend ordered but it was quickly handled and resolved by the friendly staff. He had the tagliata di manzo and the meat was tender and overall dish was full of flavour. I would highly recommend anyone to give this restaurant a try :)"

"HUGE thank you for your amazing hospitality the other week for a surprise birthday. Everyone had such an amazing time and are still talking about it a week later...You were all so good at going along with the surprise - was really special and hugely appreciated. Thank you and I think you've definitely got some repeat customers coming up - the food was amazing as always. We will be in again soon!"

"Food 10/10! My pasta special was zucchini and prawn fettuccine, so delicious! The ambiance was lovely, like being in an authentic Italian restaurant. They have an ipen kitchen where you can watch them male pizzas and it's quite ..."

"Great place! Lovely ambience - made us feel right at home. We ordered the ravioli and the pansotti, which were great! But the woodfired pizzas were the crowd pleaser at our table!"

"Went for dinner. Every dish was good. We ordered too much to try the pizza, will try next time. There's peppa pig pizza on kids menu, my daughter was really looking forward to try.😂"

"Delicious, authentic Italian food. The setting is neat as well....feels like you could be in Italy."

"Fab night with excellent good and service 😁"

"Excellent family run Italian place. Great casual, cosy atmosphere and top notch food! One of my favourite little secret spots."

"We really loved dinner at Gusto on New Year's Eve. Very friendly staff, great food and wine, and not so noisy you couldn't hear each other."

"Most excellent food and service!"

"Great cosy Italian with lovely atmosphere and great food. The filled gnocchi amazing (though everything was fantastic to be fair) Thankyou"

"We ate here our first evening in New Zealand. The locals eating there were very nice, and recommended it full heartedly. The duck was wonderful, my wife enjoyed Ravioli Verde, and my daughter loved the Spaghetti Al Ragu. It was pleasant eating outside and when it got a little to cool they turned on the outside heaters to keep us warm."

"Fantastic pizza!"

"If you're after some real and authentic Italian cuisine, Gusto delivers. There's no 'fusion-chai-latte-mambo-jambo' stuff on offer, but real Italian cuisine. We didn't check out the Pizzas, but pasta, salads and mains, which were freshly, home-made (like from la nonna) and absolutely how you would enjoy in an northern Italian trattoria in Tuscany, Piemonte or Udinese. The service was as Italian as it gets, friendly, attentive and always happy to give you a smile. We thoroughly enjoyed the 'voyage' back to Italy and only realized we were actually in Ponsonby, when exiting the cosy ristorante after a fulfilling dinner."

"Beautiful cozy winters dinner with friends. Calamari was perfect. Bruschetta amazing. They have a wood fired pizza oven and the pizza was exquisite. Great service. Definitely will be back."

"Top quality food. Warm and friendly atmosphere and service. Would definitely go again when back in Auckland."

"Delicious tasty authentic Italian cuisine"

"Nice food A"

"And extremely nice place with a large variety on the menu with plenty of variation including vegetarian and gluten free. The staff were very welcoming and the food delicious, while not the cheapest it serves authentic food and handmade pasta. I would highly recommended eating here if you are in the area. Desserts are offered however I did not try so cannot comment other than they looked amazing"

"I’m far from a Pizza lover, in fact I rarely enjoy Pizza. This place has the best Pizza I’ve ever eaten. The other options were equally as amazing too. Great range of drink options and amazing service. Very authentic and in fact I said to my wife I’m sure to get better Italian food is imaging having to go to either Italy or Nee York. Absolutely amazing place. Totally loved it. Sadly I think Pizza anywhere else would be a waste of time."

"Awesome place, amazing food. Thanks!!!"
