Great food, great staff, will definitely be back.can’t wait to try the patio this summer.
Trattoria Gusto is an amazing restaurant. The food and service are amazing. Our server made recommendations for both food and wine that were fabulous. We will be back.
Food and service was amazing!! It’s a perfect spot for a quiet and or romantic meal. I highly recommend!!
Thank you so much! Everything was delicious! The ceaser salad dressing was phenomenal and the calamari I highly recommend!
Great food on New year's however 75$ was a bit steep.
Two little scallops lol
Excellent food, large portions and nice ambiance. Wish it was summer so we could dine on the patio beside the river
Introduced Trattoria to two coworkers/friends. They enjoyed it very much and will bring their own families soon.
Personally this restaurant is an absolute favourite and our community is so fortunate to have top notch dining options.
My husband and I will be back this evening to enjoy their New Year’s price fix menu! 🍾🎉
Appetizers & mains are delicious. Desserts have been disappointing 3 of 4 times. Service depends on who your server is. Previously, had great service but last night was adequate.
Food was excellent with very large portions. Neither of us could finish our meal and we are good eaters!
Lovely for lunch and perfect setting.
I had the puttanesca pasta. It was perfect to my taste. A very good tomato sauce generous amount of seafood. Very good Caesar salad too. Definitely worth going to
Friendly attentive service, delicious menu, wonderful ambiance! Will definitely go back!
Always a pleasure, always great food and we appreciate the little personal touches that makes a soul feel welcome...
The proportions were huge. Very tasty meal with quality ingredients. Will definitely return next time we are in town.
We were greeted promptly and pleasantly and covid protocols were followed. Our server was lovely, friendly and knowledgable. All our food was delicious including dessert. Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be back. Thank you.
Our experience at Trattoria Gusto was terrible. I had reserved a table to celebrate my husband’s milestone birthday and it was not ready upon our arrival, so we were seated at the bar. It would have been nice to have been served a drink , or even a glass of water while we waited but that was not offered. We were finally seated at 1:15, given menus and then simply forgotten about! We watched the table next to us promptly receive water, then a beverage and heard them place their food order (they arrived after us). We were completely ignored and left at 1:35 - no one saw us a leave.
It was our first time to dine at this restaurant which we made a 45 minute trip from home to try. Needless to say, we were incredibly disappointed!
Another fabulous lunch with a favourite friend in my favourite Port Hope haunt.
Food is always good, service is friendly & warm, there's no other Port Hope eatery that compares.
What a superb lunch! Our risottos were delicious, hot and inventive. The servers gave us ample time to enjoy our lunch and returned periodically to check our meals, and if we wanted anything else. Beautiful ambiance in an older hotel and during the summer months the patio is delightful, with a view over the Ganaraska River and a very short distance to Lake Ontario. Thank you to all for making our Christmas shopping trip so delightful.
This restaurant has it all! Great food and wonderful ambience. I have been many times and regardless of what I ordered it was delicious. Portions are extremely generous. Highly recommend!
Always a treat! Love the food and service! the carbonnare can't be beat!
Excellent service. Never felt rushed. Food was fantastic.
Delicious food, very friendly service...great spot!
Always good. Always looking forward to next visit.
Went for lunch before a matinee theatre production. The service was great and menu choices inviting. Service was brisk and we were not rushed to make the show. Our lunches were excellent and the price was very reasonable.
Great dinner & great atmosphere. Service was excellent and the restaurant was cosy, perfect ambiance!
Had a reservation for 6:30, we waited half an hour just to be seated. Then waited an hour and a half for food.
A wonderful girls night out
It’s always a pleasure to bring visitors to this charming traditional restaurant. It’s my GO TO on special occasions and when I wish to escape my normal routine and diet :)
Worth every tasty calorie. The salads always nicely garnished & fresh. Conversation flows nicely as we are served graciously by our host and or their assistants. We were seated with a view of my favourite river . The Ganaraska River makes Port Hope my happy place! The Waddell Hotel perfectly located and Gusto Appetito!
It was an amazing experience. Wonderful service, table, ambience and very delicious food. Will go there for a celebration any day of the year. Surprise dessert for the occasion. Thank for a wonderful evening.
Great food, friendly staff, romantic atmosphere! 10/10 will come again.
I had the Shrimp Risotto and my mom had the gnocchi and both were delish. Great service and comfortable setting. Will be back again.
They were very busy and we understand there is a shortage in staff, but we had to ask the hostess to find our waitress as we had been seated for a while before drink orders where taken and we didn’t even have water. (In all honesty I don’t think anyone told her we were seated) But after that the service was great and waitress was great and knowledgeable about the menu. Food and drinks are awesome.
Food was excellent! Service was also very good….a very nice restaurant we will be going back!!
Overall, this was a very nice choice for dinner. It is unusual to criticize a place for portions being too large, but the pasta dishes and the risotto were over-generous. In our party of six, only the young adult male was able to eat a salad, entree and dessert without being stuffed. Of course this writer, being a foolish old pig, did it as well, then lived with the pain. A man's gotta do ...
Food is incredible!
Service was 5 star
A wonderful gem in lovely Port Hope
Excellent meal with top notch service. The best server ever. There were four of us for dinner and we had a great time with great food. The restaurant is lovely and the fireplace was much appreciated on a snowy afternoon. None of us live in Port Hope but if we did we'd be dining there often. Lots of interesting menu choices. . .can't wait to come back.
Excellent spot - request the front table in the window for cozy chairs & privacy. Great food & service.
Fabulous food. four of us arrived for a early lunch (11:30) lovely service. We all ordered a different dish. We all scraped the bowl. Huge servings.
Got a little noisy by 12:45 but still could talk.
Great food, good portion sizes, great service, good atmosphere. Can't ask for much better.
I had the calamari. Delicious. Was not rubbery like mosty calamari. It came with two dips Yummy!!!
We were disappointed in the gelato as it was more like ice cream but we were not charged for it as we didn't eat it all. Two people had the soup of the day but did not like that very much either.........very heavy......almost sticky!! Excellent service and very good main meal.
