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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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 ...

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.

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.

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.
