Trattoria iL Gusto Wine Bar
Wonderful food and service, lovely outdoor seating
Eat here several times a month. Good food, good service, reasonable prices. Lots of good outdoor table space.
was very nice, outdoor seating area had fans and was pleasant even on a very hot evening.
Party of 5 on Friday night.
Positives: nice outdoor space and lighting.
Food: cachio pepe pasta special was terrible. I have had this dish probably 50+ times, in US and Italy. This sauce had way too much pepper and they used parmigiana cheese instead of pecorino. Ugh.
Salads were large and the Italian dressing was great but the others were just ok.
Entrees were just ok.
Serving staff was lame.
Our last group dinner was at Scarpetta, that was fabulous.
Huge disappointment! This used to be a neighborhood gem. The prices listed here on OpenTable have gone up by 25-40%. These prices are no longer valid and they haven’t updated them. The food went downhill. My shrimp was over cooked and the waiter didn’t even offer ground pepper for my meal. Nor did he wear a mask.
I will not be returning here.
Good Italian food, very good service, reasonably priced. Have eaten here several times. Good outdoor space for seating.
Absolutely fantastic Wine and food. Thank you
Good food, nice ambiance as usual
Go there often
My Caesar salad was very good but was served at the same time as my entree. When asked if my entree could be kept warm, the waiter said no. When asked again he said yes. My entree was delicious. I ordered a double espresso. It had a slight burnt taste. Overall I enjoyed myself, would return and recommend to a friend and family.
Great food and attentive service
Great menu & service. Really delicious food. Will definitely go back.
Great! We ate outdoors. All 5 of us cleaned off our 3 appetizers and main plates.
Food was good. Sitting outside was very nice. Service and food always good
The food and service was outstanding! I highly recommend this restaurant
One of the best spots on the UWS. Food is great, prices are reasonable, service is friendly. The large outdoor patio (which pre-dates COVID by at least two years, BTW!) makes for a fantastic dining experience.
Great food and frisée service
Good service. Food tasted like it was frozen then they prepared. Bland or overly compensated with sauce.
Exceptional service! Pasta dishes were delicious. Definitely try the tortellini al funghi. I’d pass on the calamari - the pieces were cooked well, but sliced too thick.
food was mediocre.
Both the brunch and lunch menus offered great choices. Loved the poached egg with salmon. Party of five, which included three Italian-Americans, enjoyed the meal and the ambience. Very good value.
Very good food and reasonably priced - especially in light of restaurants hiking their prices “because of COVID”. Ambiance was very well attended, and service was attentive.
This is our second visit, and we plan to return.
Neighborhood gem! Good selection of wines by the glass, lovely setting, excellent service, and delicious food!! You'll be glad you went!!
Excellent service. Pasta tasted like it was made in-house. Huge portions. We will come back.
Go to restaurant for a night out! love it and love the staff :)
Food, wine, location were very good. Waiters were very helpful when my friend passed out at the table :-)
As on my two prior visits, the food was quite good. However, as on my previous visits, the servers seem to completely disappear after the entrée is served. I know virtually every restaurant seems to have service issues these days but iL Gusto seems to have plenty of staff. They just don't seem managed or deployed in a very efficient manner.
Excellent food choices. Good service. Nice location. Ate outside. It was Father’s Day dinner with family. Price was typical New York 230 for three which includes 3 glasses of wine plus dessert and tip and tax
The best place!
the food was good, small portions, nice place, good service.
This local restaurant is a gem! The food is delicious and the service is great! The specials are always worth trying and the prices are reasonable.
Such a great neighborhood spot you shouldn’t leave off your list. Delicious pastas and daily specials, good wine list and cocktails. Kind, caring staff as if they’re welcoming you into their home.
Really enjoyed our meal!! Everything was delicious, including the wines. We sat outdoors, which was delightful, but the indoor seating also looked very appealing. Will definitely go back.
A lovely experience- we’ll be back!
Service was very good as was our food
This is our go to in the neighborhood. Love this place. The salads are amazing and fresh as is the seafood linguine. The hot eggplant appetizer is delicious. The waiters and hostess are so friendly and very efficient.
Since returning to dining, I have been to this restaurant twice in the outdoor area. Somewhat enclosed, it is tastefully decorated with a true sense of ambience. What really impressed me was the food. My companion and I shared two entrées, one a pasta dish and the other a chicken dish. Both were delicious. The sauces were really excellent. We finished it off with chocolate mousse cake for dessert. Also wonderful. A great place to dine.
Lovely homey experience, good food, but service could have been better
Main course linguine with white clam sauce was outstanding.
I had a very poor experience yesterday at 3. It was my birthday and expected a good meal as I had in past years. I have no idea what has happened to this restaurant but I will not be back. It appeared the waiter was not happy to see us there. It was difficult to get a glass of water. And no one refilled them. The Branzino was very good. But the other meal is just average. Nothing was mentioned of my birthday. I will never go back. Poor attitude
