The food is minimal and expensive Italian fare. If you can sit on the small patio with no view, it is tolerable but the inside is cavernous and so noisy you can't talk to anyone or hear anyone. I went for Sun. brunch and the hollandaise on eggs Benedict was so bland is was not worthy of the name.

We liked both the bar and the restaurant. Excellent wine list. Good food. Very good staff. Try the beet salad and the antipasto plate.

Food is fresh and properly prepared. I've never met any of the kitchen staff but, it seems they enjoy food and take care and pride in what they are preparing. They've never failed to impress with the quality.

Our server Heather set the tone for the evening's meal with exceptional, knowledgeable service, providing efficient and dignified visits to the table when needed. The menu is compact but varied, with the roasted brussels sprouts being an inspired offering in the appetizer section. My main course was the trout, served on a bed of greens with quinoa and other veggies.... More

Trattoria Gusto astonished us with its service and food. We made an unplanned stop at Port Credit during our usual Montreal to Toronto road trip, and the time spent at this restaurant became the high point of the whole trip!! A shout out to Heather who was fantastic in serving us the food on Easter Sunday. And hats off to... More

We don't visit Port Hope often, but when we do and are there at dinner time, this is our restaurant of choice. The location is central and easy to find, there is on site (although limited) parking, and nice view of the river, and the staff are friendly and professional. On this last visit, though, the food was a wee... More

I dined here with 2 of my girlfriends that I had dined here with previously (in 2016). The ambience is still very welcoming & the staff friendly. It was a lovely sunny afternoon (after spectating at the Float Your Fanny down the Ganny event) we attended earlier. The food is still gorgeous & the prices fair. I would definitely have... More

It was our first time here and we were very impressed with this restaurant. We sat at a table over looking the creek, great view. The food was absolutely delicious, and they had a nice wine menu too. We can't wait to come back and try their summer menu...on their patio.
