Stopped in for my first visit to Gus's. Had the half order of lasagna with garlic toast. It was delicious- on my first bite I thought I detected nutmeg or cloves but wasn't sure. Will have to go back to check out the pizza.

Ok, I'm going to admit that we order lots of pizza -from the franchises to the 'specialty' and local pizza joints, we've tried them all. Without a question, Gus's pizza is the best. In all the years I've lived in the NW, I've been to Gus's twice. Located on 16th Ave by Foothills Hospital, the in-house dining has good service,... More

Gus's serves pastas, pizzas and salads. Food is made fresh in the kitchen, and is very good! Pizzas are tasty, fresh made, salads are great and pastas are excellent. Restaurant is small and popular at lunch time and early evenings. You won't be disappointed.

Also, I have always found the staff to be rude and extremely curt. I cannot remember one time that any of them smiled.... More

What a spectacular neighbourhood find. It's a small quaint pizzeria. It was tough to know what to order as so many delicious dishes kept pulling our attention away from the menu. It was a busy Friday night but we were able to get a table when we arrived. We ended up ordering the pepperoni and mushroom pizza, baked manicotti and... More

We have had a salad, some bread and pizza's. They all are very tasty. Our mistake was that we ordered the medium size. Small size would have been enough as well. The restaurant doesn't have an Italian atmosphere. That's a pity.

This small restaurant is right next to the Foothills hospital. It was a great place to sit and eat with great customer service! You Also can call and pick up a great meal.
