This place has become synonymous with homestyle, hearty Italian fare. The casual but chic ambience offers multiple seating options. Pizza being prepared right before your eyes in the mammoth wood-fired oven is a sight to behold. Expect soups, antipasti, entrees, kinds of pasta, pizza and of course desserts in the varied menu. The ingredients used are fresh and of top-notch quality and the flavours are rustic and authentic. No compromise on the quality here and the very best San Marzano tomatoes, truffle oil, flour are imported. The 'Zuppa Di Porcini' expectedly boasts of comforting flavours. The 'Parmigiana Di Melanzane' is outstanding with a creamy texture and bold flavours. The baked and layered eggplant is akin to a well-made lasagne and is a must-try here. The in-house 'Tagliolini Bombay' is a treat for the eyes and the palate as the chef adeptly tosses it in a Grana Padano cheese wheel with a brandy flambe. Among the new pizza additions, 'Spinaci' is a worth trying. The 'Espresso Croquant' is a refreshing but intense gelato, to round off your meal. Plenty of other dessert options too. The service is impeccable and the staff articulate.
We LOVE the pizza at Gustoso. The fresh made sought and sauce, is excellent, and the cheese is just the right amount of stretchy! The service is great too! If you’re looking for a restaurant in the Peddar Road, area please go!
Ordered Margherita & Indianapoli Pizzas..both were excellent..Spinach Ravioli..very good..ended with Tiramisu..wonderful..
Well after seeing the rating of 4.5 and reading mini ribero review we decided to have lunch on a saturday at Gustoso. The arrival at the place itself is a challenge as the location of restaurant is right under the bridge at a corner and to top it they dont have a valet parking. Since the location of restaurant is at a busy corner driving vehicle around trying to find a place to park vehicle puts you off. Anyway parking was located after 10 mins of driving in the area and paying money to crossword valet. Now to the food, totally avarage affair. We ordered the following Frittura de Calamari --- Excellent Gamberoni All Aglio (prawn dish) - Poor Lasagne de Pollo --- Very Good Murgante Pizza --- Pathetic Going dish by dish calamari was amazing probably highlight of the lunch we had as it tasted good. Prawns were supposed to be king prawns but the size served was not even normal prawns and being in navy i know what the king prawns are. The dish was bland and the taste was spoilt seeing the size of prawns. Value for money six small pieces of prawns for 700, Guess its what is business these dAYS Lasagne tasted amazing but here again the size of portion was not even worth one person. My 16 year old daughter whi hardly has an appetite for lot was left asking for more, Thena again the reason could be the taste of dish. Now the worst part the pizza. It was like a half baked tandoori roti with sprinkling of cheese and other toppings and it was good for patients only so bland it was. On inquiry we were told that the chicken was marinated only in salt. So effectively no taste. Have travelled to italy and have stayed in Milan and Venice but their Pizzas were never this bland was it an off day for the chef or is it actually the way it was. However could se the snigger on the face of host when queried him about the taste and also the chef who conveyed that it was how it is supposed to be. Anyway a few pieces of Jalapenoes were sprinkled on the pizza to make it taste better. So you see a very average outing not worth the money and effort spent to travel from colaba to peddar road and definitely experience not matching with the review of Mini Ribero.
We always enjoyed our visits to Gustoso previously but this time around, we were left disappointed. From the quality of the food which has certainly gone down (soggy pizza, stingy toppings and a dip in taste - their seafood pasta left much to be desired) to the erratic service despite not being very busy (they forgot the pasta order!!!) I would seriously reconsider going. And it’s not inexpensive, at approx 2000 per head without alcohol..... 2 more things to be aware of - no valet with limited parking near the restaurant, and you are charged for absolutely everything, even bread on the table.
we ate there twice. both times the food was good but the service need to be improved several notches. the location is good too
Restaurants often find back their mojo after going through rebranding and rises from the ashes the way a phoenix does. There are several cases where a good facelift has done wonders for an eatery, giving the restaurant that much needed boost prior to some creative tweaking. Even the most popular chain of restaurants are going through the tweaking phase, coming back even stronger than before to revel in the accolades. Mumbai’s answer to budget-friendly Italian dining, ‘Gustoso’ of Kemps Corner at August Kranti Marg is one of the prime examples of how wonderfully rebranding fares out most of the time. Gustoso is a very popular chain of restaurants that are known for their quaint setting and an array of mouth-watering wood fired oven pizzas that puts even five star eateries to shame.
The menu of Gustoso is a likeable one, doing fabulously for the crowd who are crazy for their pizzas. Being a pizza connoisseur ourselves we find Gustoso’s wood fired oven pizzas to be top quality. Vegetarians need not fear as they are well looked after. The menu is hand-crafted by Chef Giulio Adriani who lends his creative expertise to take the menu to the next level. Sit in their outdoor area and relax over a bottle of wine. First course or as the Italians call it ‘antipasti’ features, arancini, crostini burrata, bruschetta, mozzarella caprese, tortelloni in brodo, pane pizza, involtini di pollo, bufala e prosciutto and parmigiana di melanzane. Although the entire menu is a wonderful compilation of dishes, pay special attention to the pizzas as they are the star of the menu. Marinara, Quattro formaggi, pesto e pollo, stella and prosciutto di parma are one of their best.
Italians are renowned for their desserts and at Gustoso it’s no exception. Fall in love with the classics again such as, tiramisu, panna cotta, torta caprese, mousse al cioccolato, pizza alla Nutella and zeppole. Gustoso is not exactly cheap but its lovely interiors more than makes up for it. A charming firangipani flanked façade opens into a long dimly lit room, fitted with sturdy wooden tables and lightweight chairs. Colourful murals on the wall depicting life at Italian piazza instantly catches your eye. The best place to sit however is outdoors next to the lush potted plants. The ambience at Gustoso is casual, charming, tranquil and easy to love.
