Italian
Gusto (pronounced Goo-sto) means tasty in Italian. Since opening our doors in 2012, Gusto 101 has been serving up modern takes on Southern Italian classics. As with Trattoria Nervosa in Yorkville, Janet Zuccarini has meshed a passion for creating memorable food with a vision for delivering soulful, transporting dining experiences.

We put as much care and consideration into our food and drink as we do our architecture and design. Located in a repurposed garage in the heart of downtown Toronto, our restaurant has become a neighbourhood gathering place. Whether you’re craving the warmth of a wood-fired grill or a glass of wine on our rooftop patio, we do our best to merge the everyday with the exceptional.

    Amazing food and great service. Two of our party have celiac disease, and they accommodated with gluten free versions of pasta dishes (the mushroom and the spicy tomato with cheese). Both were amazing. The server was incredible, and we had the best time.

    Server could have been a little more attentive, the food runner was sweet, but the server could have been more interested in the job.

    I’ve been to gusto once before and enjoyed myself, so i booked a little patio on the patio this time around. Our table was pleasantly taken care of and the food came quickly which was great. The food was enjoyable as well as the drinks we ordered. When the time came around to taking care of the bill, i was surprised to see that a simple cocktail was $20. I usually have no complaints over cocktail prices, but a $20 cocktail at gusto with the simple ambience it had was a little expensive. As mentioned, food was good but nothing i would personally recommend. I have no intention of coming back here again. There are honestly way better Italian places within walking distance with better value for less.

    Very disappointed and unsatisfied with our experience here today - I won’t be back for the following reasons. 1. The serving staff was incredibly rude and inattentive. It was 10+ minutes from when we sat down to our server or anyone else coming to our table. When our first server came up to us he just say “yeah what do you want” not even a hello or a smile. This isn’t how anyone should be addressed. 2. The patio is mainly in the sun and quite uncomfortable seating. The hostess offered us to switch to a table in the shade which was so kind - however it then started drama with the servers as I guess we moved to a new servers section. The two of them then argued infront of our table about how we switched seats and didn’t tell them - when in fact it was the hostess. Our new server once again didn’t smile or say hello until we had to wave her down for the bill. It seemed all the surrounding tables didn’t get good service as well. 3. It was very hard to get any service. Including cutlery once our food was delivered - our meals were getting cold waiting in addition to a water refill being very hard to get. The white wine came in a cute little jug which didn’t keep it cool unfortunately - probably not the best idea. I noticed the nearby tables having the same issue and everyone talking about the patio furniture being uncomfortable. 4. I also noticed a consistent line of people coming in trying to sit. It seemed the staff struggled to clean dirty tables and get waiting customers sat - I couldn’t believe how many people kept getting turned away! The wait list was so probably really long due to this. 5. Lastly, the restaurant on open table and their website advertise happy hour every Monday - Thursday. When we asked about this our server literally scoffed at us about how today is a long weekend so “of course there’s no happy hour”. I’m surprised that this isn’t on the website but also the attitude given to us? Overall just very unimpressed

    The food was great. Service was not. We had to ask if we could order after waiting 20 minutes and being ignored by the waiter. We weren’t checked on or asked if we needed/wanted anything else, until it was time to pay, they were certainly quick to bring the bill.
