Gusto Ristorante is a Northern Italian restaurant with a touch of the South at the Sea Turtle Marketplace in Hilton Head Island.
The executive chef and owner Giancarlo Balestra with his wife Nancy bring the vibrant flavors of his native hometown of Rome, Italy to Hilton Head. The couple who met in Rome 28 years ago discovered their shared passion for food and adventure and have since owned and operated restaurants in Aspen, Co, Winter Park, Fla and Saratoga Springs, NY. They fell in love with Hilton Head and decided to jump into this new exciting culinary adventure, hence the name Gusto, which means flavor and taste in Italian but also means a zest and enthusiasm for a delicious taste of life. The restaurant has a full bar, extensive wine list.

    I find that some restaurants have great food, but service is sometimes lacking. Others have great service but the food is not great. In the case of Gusto, I can say that the food was EXCEPTIONAL, but equally exception was the SERVICE. We felt lucky to have found this Restaurant on our first visit to Hilton Head Island. We would recommend this to anyone who wants authentic, exceptional Italian food on the Island. In fact, I would compare GUSTO favorably to any great Italian restaurant I have been to in any US city, including Antonello Ristorante in Costa Mesa which is my favorite for both FOOD and SERVICE for more than 40 years. Visit GUSTO when on the Island. You won't be disappointed!

    Service was great by staff and Gabriella, our server. Pasta was very good. Eggplant parm a little too mushy.
