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.
I revisited Gustoso after two years. I was disappointed to find that the restaurnat's choice of Italian dishes has shrunk, amd the main items are pizzas. This is perhaps because the excellent Italian chef is no longer there. The pizzas are enjoyable, thin crust and made in front of the customer. Service is efficient and polite.
What a hidden gem and iasis of Southern Italian cuisine in center of Mumbai. Unexpected true Italian recipes, very friendly smiling staff and great vibe. Try their two pastas as we did, and you will fall un love with this place. Tagliolini Bombay --- homemade tagliolini tossed in a Grana Padano wheel with a brandy flambe'... yummy!!!! 10/10 And Scialiatielli pesciosa: signature pasta with king prawns, clams, calamari in a white wine and cherry tomato sauce. Good as well. Great choice of wines or mocktails.
Absolutely great AUTHENTIC ITALIAN PIZZA in Mumbai! We loved the service and the decoration, everything made with great taste and a lovely Italian atmosphere!! They even has a Vespa in the dining room. Menu has a rich choice of pastas (linguine alle vongole, truffle pasta, ravioli burro e salvia), fantastic appetisers (parmigiana with buffalo mozzarella, arancini) and PIZZAS to die for!!! The pizzas are made in a huge wooden oven, Neaples style, that means thick crust and the best ingredients, such as prosciutto ham, burrata, tomatoes San Marzano.. It was a FEAST. The prices for pizzas around 900 Rs, you can add ingredients, no problems, to compose the pizza of your liking. They serve PIZZA AL METRO, as well, so if you come in a company, you can get a really HUGE pizza on your table, which is not only big but also super yummy!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. NOT TO MISS IN MUMBAI!
restaurant a total different experience with European delicacies. fine dining and prices are high valet parking available. lots of varieties but nothing indian
Your first question might be why I would choose to have an Italian dinner in Mumbai. In the past, some of the worst meals I have ever had were in such non-native locales, such as Mexican in Paris and Queenstown, NZ, or hamburgers in numerous places. But I didn't choose; my host, a long term resident of Mumbai, did, and it turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. For me, there are a few dishes that are my best indicators of an Italian restaurant. So I started with risotto and finished with tiramisú, and had a glass of Barolo. I can't say much about the other items on the menu, but my choices were all very good. The service was fine and the price was reasonable. Plus, it was a good break from chicken tikka masala and rogan josh. If I lived close to the restaurant, as my host does, then I would probably go back, especially if Milano wasn't on my short-term travel itinerary. For me, as a visitor, Gustoso was an interesting curiosity, but I would probably choose to explore some of Mumbai's multitude of dining options on a future trip.
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.
