I arrived to find Il Gustoso had not received my reservation (booked through an agency) and were fully booked. Nevertheless they took the trouble to set up their private dining room for just two of us and served us an excellent lunch. Though extremely busy they were discreetly attentive and the waiter was charming. Thoroughly recommended.

Pleasant waiters and staff. If you like pre-cooked and microwaved food then this is the place for you.

I really like this place. The food is always good - they have a white truffle special menu from 1-3 December - and the service also.

6 of us ate this week and it really was excellent. Both the service and the food was awesome. I had the chicken with chilli dish and my colleagues had a variety of the pasta dishes which they raved about. A lovely atmosphere and you can see how the food is cooked with the kitchen visible. A great night and... More

We were refused a reservation for a group of twenty, and had to revert to three small group reservations.The boss is slightly related to Napoleon in his empirical attitude, but he runs a great business, where service is first class, and the food excellent.Would find my way back blindfold!!

We had a random walk in lunch here. The service was prompt and friendly. Pricing was very reasonable and the quality of the food was excellent. I ordered the 2 course lunch menu (minestrone soup + beef lasagna) which was very good and was pleasantly surprised to see they included a dessert which was not part of the lunch set... More

We were staying in the area and found Gustoso via a web search. It is located on a side street so a bit hidden from view. The place punches above it's weight. The food was excellent and the service was friendly and helpful.

The hand caught baby octopuses were great disappointment. For 9 GBP, you get 4 little pieces, fried in batter and served COLD??!! However, I would recommend to the mussels if they are on special. The tomato based broth was excellent.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
