Being grand doesn’t have to be a big deal. Inspired by the traditional grand cafes of Europe, Gusto is all about making the everyday exquisite. Join us as we take a look at one of the standout places to eat and drink in Glasgow.
Our classic and contemporary Italian menu takes fresh, carefully selected, simple ingredients to create the best tasting food around. And our timeless, classic surroundings make any occasion – whether it’s a family lunch or dinner for two – feel special. If you’re going to do anything, do it with taste. And do it with style. After all, life is a gift; live it with Gusto every day.
Opened in April of 2015 Gusto has been rapidly gaining a reputation for being the Italian restaurant and bar to visit in the City with a wonderful vibe. The first thing that grabs your attention is the stunning appearance of the place, and it’s hardly surprising – it was originally a Grade A-Listed disused bank until it was given a £1.3 million makeover.
As you might imagine it is very spacious. Set out over two floors, the designers of Gusto Glasgow have made plenty of playful nods to modern Italian culture – the solid parquet floor, tan leather booths, luxurious marble table tops, brass detailing and a striking square central bar with touches of art deco styling, oozing the quality needed for the food lovers of Glasgow.
The 150 cover restaurant and bar with an outdoor terrace space for 30 will serve a modern twist on Italian brasserie classics including twelve types of pizza, all the classic pasta dishes as well as some less common ones – white crab, chilli, garlic and lemon spaghetti; butternut squash ravioli with cavolo nero – a full roster of mains and some swanky specials some of which a venue exclusive.
Child friendly too; the wee ones can even have a go at making their own pizza, and there is also an early bird option and a rewards scheme, and Thurs thru Sunday there is also a cocktail club, as well as Cocktails Masterclasses.
Gusto can be found on Bothwell Street, and for more information, menus, and pictures please head over to their website here.
