Came here on a Saturday night with 5 others. Decor is great and the atmosphere was good. It was very noisy not somewhere to go for an intimate meal! The chef was really noisy shouting out when orders were ready- perhaps someone could buy him...More

The Inside is very beautiful and staff were really lovely however, the spaghetti bol was awfully flavourless and somewhat dry. Can't complain as the rest of the food was fabulous but I would not rush back here to eatz

Upon a recommendation from someone staying in our hotel, we tried Gusto. Service was good although the drinks seem weak. Mushroom Risotto was very good. Enjoyed it.

We were staying at the Tigerlilly hotel and asked a receptionist for a nearby restaurant that wasn't seafood. She recommended Gusto and the four of us were well pleased. Menu was broad and prices were reasonable. Risotto, spaghetti and pizza were all first rate and...More

Our staff were very excited about eating at this establishment but now feel let down. We were offered a set menu for 12.95 which seemed very reasonable and had a wide range of tasty offerings. Unfortunately our party changed from 15 staff members to 16....More

Very good food. Excellent service. Will visit again next time in Edinburgh. The Gusto in Glasgow is equally as good.

As soon as we entered the premises, we seemed pressured to get sat down, menus were strewn at us, before we had time to remove our coats, jackets etc. which no one offered to take from us to hang up, there was nowhere to lay...More

Had a lovely family birthday celebration meal for an 89th! My auntie was made to feel very special by the delightful young man who served us. The food was scrumptious and we aptly managed to demolish each course with gusto!

I was a great fan of this chain when I lived in Leeds so remembered to go to Edinburgh as it was convenient for the book festival. Twice with different friends. My sandwich meal was to share their garlic bread with rosemary and sea salt....More

Managed to get a table outside on a busy Saturday evening, friendly waiter and there was a small menu for children. The pizza was very large and everyone was happy. It was very noisy and busy inside but people seemed happy, lots of large groups...More

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric

Looks like Business Casual will be appropriate. You see everything from dressed up jeans to cocktail attire. I think respectable will be fine. Enjoy!

I was a lone diner that evening. It was probably not a Friday. I went in, not very confident as other places did not have a table. But staff were immensely helpful. Did not even ask, as they do to make you feel terrible, if... More
