We were greeted by our servers on this dark, wet night arriving earlier than our reservation. Luckily they were able to accommodate us as our table was vacated sooner than expected. With a full house our server and hostess were attentive and gracious offering us a dessert after our delicious meal having had to wait longer than expected. We look forward to returning to the Tattoria Gusto.

Did not get a very good table in spite of a reservation. Asked to move and was told no, despite the table we asked for remaining vacant for the entire time we were there. Good portion of well prepared lamb loin. Pasta was average, which is odd for a Trattoria. Nice waitress. Good atmosphere with nice music.

The wait staff was very friendly. Unfortunately when I asked for a change in the preperation to my meal I was told that it would be done and it wasn't. Appetizers were fantastic, salads amazing, drinks were perfect dessert was delicious. Just wish I hadn't ordered the risotto. I will definitely give it another try as short of the main course it was great.

Our experience at this restaurant was excellent. I had been before and it did not disappoint! Great service, atmosphere and food. I highly recommend it for any occasion. I booked through open table and they had a wonderful table for us. There open spaces as well as cozy intimate ones. It has an old world charm but in a modern way...not stuffy or old fashioned.

there are only a few dishes I would had ordered, the trout, shrimps and scallops and chicken.
I like fish, but your trout is a cold dish, that's not for me, would not go to an Italian Restaurant
to order something cold except a beer. yes you beer was cold but not good, the William Street XXX Ale or Lager, must not be a good selling beer.
when I unpacked the napkin, I found my knife to be dirty, I asked for a replacement.
The waitress checked the other 2 sets of cutlery, and found the other knifes not clean enough, she replaced them all.
Sitting outside on this beautiful Sunday afternoon was in our mind the only way to have a meal. What we encountered was not funny, there were just too many flies around our dinner plates.
And finally there was something nice to say, you deducted $ 7.50 for the Birthday Cake,
our Grandson really appreciated the gesture.

Probably the best place to eat in Port Hope. The deck has been much improved by an all-covering awning. The food is acceptable but not outstanding. Service is inconsistent but is never bad.

We went for our wedding anniversary, the manager went out and purchased chocolates for us and left a note. Dessert was also complimentary.
We have been there several times and the waitress remembered our wine preference.
My vegan requests are easily accommodated!
Food and service is always top notch!

The service and staff were excellent .
The Puttanesca was just ok.
The most frustrating was the poor wine choice. The wines did not fit the cuisine and the cost of any wine was not a problem.
One of the few places that serves an 18 year old scotch. The new barkeep was polite and friendly.

Not only was the view beautiful, and our table ready despite us being a bit late from the theatre, but we felt welcome from the moment we stepped in. Sierra our server, recommended our appetizer, wine and both entrees, as well as our dessert. She also made the dessert complimentary since it was a birthday celebration for my mom. We never felt rushed and the food was amazing! One of the best places I've eaten at!

The appetizers were wonderful. My husband's Cesar salad was good and I had the fried halomi which was excellent. My husband's steak was nicely cooked, but not really flavorful. I had the chicken parmesan. I found it to be a little dry and requested some more sauce. The portions were ample and the service was good. Bit of a drive for us, but if in Port Hope again we will visit it again.

Lovely evening sitting outside on the patio, the sound of the river flowing was pleasant, and the overall setting was very nice.

Food was very good, with generous, but not obscene servings, and very good quality ingredients.

Out server, Lee, made us feel special, and was always there when needed, but never hovered.

Highly recommend trying this restaurant if you have an opportunity.

Unfortunately although the food was great and the staff very friendly, the wait to get the food jeopardized our evening. Seems like the Kitchen had a problem - even for simple dishes like pizza and lamb for a table of *two* (we weren't a large party of 8). We arrived at 6:15pm...ample time to order and eat prior to seeing an 8pm play at the Capitol theatre nearby. By 7:15, we had still not received our main course. We flagged the waitress...who promised to speed up the process. By 7:35...still no mains...so we asked for the bill and told them to forget the main course. At 7:40pm, the food arrived. We immediately asked for the bill & wolfed it down...and just made our show.
