    It's always a pleasure to eat outdoors at our favorite neighborhood trattoria! The food never disappoints, service is gracious, the atmosphere is inviting, and they never rush you. We will continue to return.

    Love this place. Because of Covid I only eat on the lovely spacious patio, tables are nicely separated and it's a covered space so no need to worry if it rains. The food is very tasty and plentiful.

    Nice ambiance and good service but disappointing food. Ordered a salad, appetizer, special pasta and special chicken dish. Past was overcooked. Salad was meh. App and chicken were very bland and under seasoned.

    An under-the-radar neighborhood gem. I’ve walked by hundreds of times, but this day we were looking for a last minute resy. Dined outdoors. We four were pleasantly surprised. We will definitely return.

    The specials menu is so worn that it is barely readable. The food was poor. The Cacio e Pepe had a heavy, salty sauce that was thick and tasted odd. The chicken was tough and tasteless. Salad was not fresh. Chicken Parmigiana was okay but not much of a portion. We were seated on the street outside the patio dining area. Throughout the dinner pigeon feathers floated onto our food. The prices are at a level that we expected a decent dinner. What a disappointment.

    Despite the very good reviews, I think this must be a neighborhood favorite, bc it didn’t cut it for us. Food was mediocre and so was the wine list. It’s perfectly pleasant but there are better options within 10 blocks.

    Il Gusto has seen better days. It relies on a good location and the momentum of time which has yet to catch up with the fact that it is definitely not as good as it was. Slapping carbs on a heap load of pasta may fill the stomach but it is cooking at its most basic. We ordered the buffalo appetizer and the cheese was dry and the tomatoes not ripe. The veal was thin and tough and awash in a tomato sauce. I could go on but my basic warning would be that New Yorkers vote with their feet and if the staff begin to find the tables are getting less and less crowded they have only themselves to thank.

    This restaurant was OK but the food was not very good. I got a chicken dish and it was just huge square chunks of tough chicken and sausage. If I go back there I will not order this dish.

    We love this place! They have a great outdoor covered patio and all the staff is very friendly (although they could probably use one or two more). The food is excellent - we had some great pastas, salads and veal dishes. And don’t skip dessert - the mousse cake and cannoli’s are both delicious. They have great specials but don’t print the prices; we suggest you ask because they can be quite a bit more expensive than the regular menu items.

    Very nice neighborhood Italian w outdoor seating that is among the nicest I’ve seen - tables are spaced apart, there are plastic dividers, and you’re outside but still separated from sidewalk traffic. Good service and food - only thing was that specials are not priced, I ordered Cacio y Pepe and it was $27 for a not large portion of pasta (no seafood or meat or even vegetables). Would be helpful to list the prices on the specials card. . I’d return but just be aware of that. Otherwise it is a good place especially if you’re in the area and want to sit outside and have a conversation (it’s not noisy).

    This is our neighborhood 'go-to'! The food is delicious, well-prepared and presented, and the staff professional and cordial. We always feel welcomed and cared for, and that, coupled with the truly delicious food is simply a win-win. Thanks Gus, Ari, and staff for another wonderful dinner ;-)

    We were there on Sunday evening, so it wasn't very crowded. The tables are nicely space, so the noise level was only moderate, and it because very quiet as the evening proceeded. Very good food and service, and it's not overly expensive. We would definitely return.

    We ordered the special salad of arugula, pecans, oranges and pomegranate seeds which was tasty. Bigger pieces of pecans would have been better and more of the other accessories would have been better. I had veal scallopini and my companion had the mediterranean salmon-both very good. The negative was that they charged us for a second cup of coffee, which other restaurants do not. The service was good.

    Great little gem on Upper West Side. Nice ambiance. Good service. General manager was attentive to all patrons. Menu had a nice variety of authentic Italian dishes. Food was DELICIOUS (I had the Veal Francese). One of the best Amaretto Sours I’ve ever had. Dessert was a little disappointing but still tasty.

    Excellent food and service. The exterior doesn't look super inviting but once you're inside you'll find it very comfortable with a great ambiance. Some of the dishes are expensive but others are reasonably priced. Great wine list.
