we were there for a late lunch. the restaurant had one other couple at another table, and us. So it was a lovely quiet lunch in the heart of Orchard, which is such a pleasure. Food is tasty, with quality ingredients.

No self-respecting restaurant claims to be fully reserved, as they will always allocate some tables for walk-in customers. The staff at Gusto did not even care to ask if we'd like to come back to check if there was availability at a later hour. We were there early (6.30pm) and there were only 2 occupied tables, with the entire restaurant... More

The ambience was absolutely fantastic! Good for couples to hang out for a romantic meal. Highly recommended for group of friends for chilling out. Wide range of drink list is available and the food menu was great! Cheese stick and pizza burger are must try items! Will definitely return again :)

Bistro is divided into 2 sections with an alfresco dining area and also an indoor space. Do indicate your preference when making reservations. Food wise, the pan fried seabass did not disappoint with its tender flesh and beautiful mango salsa. The sous vide wagyu rump was too peppery for my liking. Being a cut from the rump, the texture was... More

Food are okay. Price is a bit on high side but is expected price in Orchard area. However the service is slow and the waiter has made a few mistakes. We pointed on the menu, ordered chilli crab pizza and wagyu beef chorizo. But he gave us wagyu beef pizza, which was not even in that menu! Then we had... More

The bistro has an enviable location at Ion Orchard with pleasant alfresco seats. I would recommend sitting outside instead of inside, as the latter has limited seats and is quite stuffy. Food offerings are average by the standards of Italian cuisine in Singapore. I tried a range of their pasta and pizzas, but would not comment on any being very... More

If the shopping has got to much stop off at Gusto for a quick bite. They have a great menu with something for everyone, a good wine list and good service. Spend some time on the deck and enjoy definitely a great place to stop on a Saturday. Enjoy

Came here for lunch today and opted for the Sea bass as main course whilst my friend chose the Wagyu cheeks. Food was good, although a little on the small side. Service was efficient. Probably a little overpriced for what you get. Water costs extra.

Was there with my Sister and bro. Nothing spectacular. The food was good but that was it. I believe the ambience of the bar will be Albert nice at night given the lightings and layout. The food though, I've tasted better. You can still give it a go. It is not bad.
