Food was excellent! Had a kids menu and good choices for kids, mine shared a pizza and pasta and it came with drinks for a very reasonable price. Our dinner was exceptional and the cheesecakes were delicious. Service was excellent; friendly and prompt. Only negative...would be the lighting. Very, very dim and orange. Difficult to even see what you were eating. I used my cell phone flashlight to look at my meal when it arrived.More

Reserved at Gusto last night for 6PM with my son. All was well until I got to the second last bite of my dish. On the food was a long strand of dark hair. I didn't mention it to our waitress as she was a...super host. Instead, I thought I'd post a review here. I realize that at times things such as this can happen but regardless; it's so disgusting to see a person's hair stuck to your pasta.More

One of the few places serving later in the evening. Good for us. Had a great dinner. I ordered the Gusto Pizza which I ate in its entirety along with a few local beers. The atmosphere was loud upstairs even as late as we were....Food was delicious.More

We ordered take out as we are travelling with our dog and wouldn’t leave him at the hotel. The Caesar salad was perfect. Real bacon and lots of it, lots of cheese, croutons, it could not have been better. The margarite pizza was thin crusted,full...of flavour. The seafood linguine had scallops,crab and plump shrimp. Dessert…the carrot cake cheesecake was “ to die for” according to my sister. The limoncello cheesecake was light, citrusy and melted on the tongue. If I lived in Moncton this would be my choice for Italian.More

The server was amazing, but the food was just okay. The prices were high and the portions were small. We had mussel for appetizer and my partner ordered seafood risotto and every second mussel was just full of sand and one mussel has a rock...in it. Wish we just went somewhere else. Very disappointing. I work in one of the hotels downtown and lots of our guests ask for restaurant recommendations and i will definitely not recommend this one.More

Great dining experience. The food was delicious,the service great. We loved the atmosphere and decor upstairs, one of the best rooms we’ve ever been in and will choose to be seated there each time we go. My wife got the Classic Lasagna for 21 and...I got the Chicken parmigiana for 26. Both were very good with large portions especially the chicken parmigiana that could have served two people. Lots of yummy dessert to choose from if you have any room left.More

One of the best meals we had on our maritime trip. The pasta dishes are excellent and cooked al dente. Very good service. It is a very large busy eatery so not a place for a quiet romantic meal. The desserts are massive so you...will likely leave with extra. If not, I am impressed.More

This restaurant is a great experience in Moncton. Food is very good and plenty. You can share a plate without extra fare, and there is a good choice of wine by the glass.

My partner and I are from PEI and stayed 2 nights in downtown Moncton. Our first night we ate at Gusto's and we were SO glad we went. Beautiful interior and a fantastic ambiance. Hats off to the front of the house and back of...the house. Service was excellent. Other than our server, there were other members of the serving staff looking after us and I think the manager even came by our table and ask how everything was. The food was delicious and authentic. The portion sizes are generous and for a reasonable price. We ordered fried calamari to start. Let me say that I've never had to get a to-go box for an appetizer before! I had to save room for my meal which I also couldn't finish, but couldn't let it go to waste. My server even put my left overs in my to-go box for me at the table. Talk about service :D PEI NEEDS a Gusto's!!! I would seriously eat here every night. We will be back, thank you again!!!More

The food, atmosphere and service are all good. The only thing I wasn't a big fan of was one of their pizza's (can't remember which one) but everything else is just amazing. This is my go to restaurant anytime I am in Moncton. Save room...for dessert, their cakes are to die for. Make sure you make a reservation, this place books up fast.More

We had reservations tonight and we took our 82 yr old mom , I asked for a table downstairs, and we were told there was a private function, on the other side of the main area, across from the steps and ramps the area was...completely empty , plenty of tables to be had. So we were able to get her up the stairs and were offered a booth that she could not step up into, We were then given a table in an area that tables were so close to other tables you were less then 4ft from other dinners. This was most likely the worst dining experience we have had in the last 2 yrs, and we have supported all local restaurants during covid. On top of that the server was slow, unattentive and never asked how our meal was. I have eaten there many times but tonight was my last. Seems to me after the 6 ft rule between tables disappeared , this restaurant thought we should dine like sardines in a can. Thankfully the food was good as usual, but we wont returnMore

Took my gf out to this place for her birthday. The service was excellent..attentive and helpful, and very fast. Her food was quite good - a linguine with seafood...lots of fresh lemon zest, cream, garlic, all perfectly balanced with giant ass shrimps and scallops. I...would give it a 9/10 . Pasta was perfectly Al dente. Seafood was fresh and also perfectly cooked. I had read on Tripadvisor that the steaks at this Italian grill were quite good. The Barolo steak came with unidentified "wild mushrooms" - the waitress had no idea what types of mushrooms were included. She said she could ask, but it was busy, and i didnt wanna press the issue...but she shouldve known. The sauce was excellent - very intense and concentrated w a red wine reduction. The steak was perfectly cooked...med-rare. Pink in the middle, and not much bleeding.The chefs did a fantastic job... BUT the steak itself was a low quality cut. I had to hack away, sawing back and forth my my steak knife. Steaks here are locally raised and very high quality. So it's not that Gusto's cant find good quality steaks at a fair price. They chose to cheap out and hopefully pass off Sobey's quality steaks. Sadly i could not finish it, my jaw was sore from trying to chew through the rubbery fibers. I could only eat about half of it. The wine consultation was great...he knew his products and recommended a great wine for us. The bill for the meal was very reasonable, for the quality and service. I would avoid the steaks in the future tho.More
