Description: Italian cooking with the hallmark of our famous Italian head chef Fabrizio Fattuci is what makes Gusto. But that's not all. Gusto is an Italian restaurant in the heart of St Petersburg, which combines the classic and the cosy, style and simplicity, and of course friendly service - all rare signs of great taste!And the word "gusto" means exactly this - "taste". Our menu has already become legendary around the city. Roman rabbit with artichoke and pecorino cheese, beetroot risotto with gorgozola ice-cream, cappelaci with duck, ricotta sauce and red wine caramel...... head chef Fabrizio has travelled extensively around Italy, and in every region picked up new skills, new aromas, and new tastes, all of which he magically combined to create the menu for GustoWe also take special pride in our vinoteque. This is the biggest wine storage system in St Petersburg, allowing us to serve any wine on our list by the glass. And on our cosy summer terrace, just a stone's throw from Nevsky Prospekt, you can quietly sip a cappuccino with some mago tart or panna cotta with juicy forest berries.Another unique feature of Gusto is Apartment Number 2 - a private area for guests, where you can enjoy all the advantages of a top class home-style restaurant. It comprises two rooms - a dining area and a lounge with a television and soft sofas. It is the perfect place to celebrate a birthday, throw a family dinner party, or have a private meal with your business partners. Guests in the apartment are not limited on their food choice, being able to order any dish on the menu or make a personal request. At Gusto, everything is like is should be at home. In the best home.Culinary School GUSTOMAESTRO - an author's project chef Italian restaurant GUSTO Fabrizio Fatuchchi.

Visited Gusto today and the food was exceptionally good.

I have visited a number of restaurants in Saint Petersburg and Gusto is near the top.

Good value for money and good service.

Thank Keith W

We were really impressed by the restaurant. Cosy interiors, professional and friendly service, reasonable prices, good wines and, most important, great food. Tasteful presentation, everything we chose (pasta, meat, fish) was simply delicious. We make sure to come back, and not once, until we try the entire menu.

The food is good, but I left the place with sad feeling that I was somehow hoodwinked. They served me a glass (red wine) with some 75 ml inside. I struggled for a sec with myself to start a quarell or not but eventually decided to give up (i came to enjoy after all, so i just paid for one more glass). It was supposed to be 150 ml.

By the way, for their managers maybe, it was on late evening of August 23...

my girlfriend and I went here the other night because it is right down the road from where we live. It is very nice inside. I was very disappointed though in the service. People who got there after us got there food before us. Had to wait for it felt like forever to get our check. The was good by all means but the portion was smaller than i expected and service was terrible. Hard for me to recommend a place with bad service and not sure if i would ever go back or not.
