My sister and I had a wonderful lunch on the Patio by the Ganaraska river. We both ate a fabulous bowl of lobster and pea soup with a side salad. The service was excellent as they were so accomodating: my sister was late, we changed tables when she showed up, we chatted for a long time. One of my favorite restaurants in Port Hope.

I wasn’t blown away by the menu...I also didn’t like that we only received our bread and oil dip after the table beside us did...even though we were seated at least ten minutes earlier than they were. Last, we had a window seat which had good ambiance but our table was the target of numerous house flys and tiny fruit flies....

Great food, well prepared. Generous portions, so we enjoyed our leftover pasta the next day for lunch.

Went for dinner with friends on Saturday night and loved it. The food was great, service was good and the atmosphere perfect. The outside patio is lovely, as it looks over a river and greenery.

Food was terrific and good value.
When we arrived I made a point of asking to sit on patio - a few drops of rain were in the air and the hostess brought us back in saying it was not possible as it was going to rain harder. I doubted that as the sky was not dark with blue sky. I had the impression that she just didn’t want us out there for whatever reason. We were seated inside at a very nice table. Not 5 minutes later, tables were all prepared for guests and guests were allowed out. We should then have been offered the opportunity to have a patio table - we are owners at a golf course and I can guarantee that our hostess would have offered the opportunity. Summer is short and time outside is precious to me.
Otherwise the food, drink and service was top-notch. Thank you.

The food was excellent and delicious! The service, however, was somewhat slow. Our waiter also seemed stressed and treated an elderly member of our party with impatience. Hopefully this was just an isolated incident as we really did enjoy ourselves otherwise. I will definitely go again to give them another chance.

I already have recommended them. I had the brie and bacon sandwich on gluten free bread and it was delicious. My friend had it on regular bread and she liked it too. I would like to know where the gluten free bread /bun was from. We also had the beet salad (my usual) always a good choice. Thanks for the gluten free options - it is greatly appreciated.

We were very disappointed in this visit having enjoyed other times at Gusto very much. Kitchen was too busy. Food arrived cold and meat dish was so burnt that it was not edible. I was also served the wrong salad.

We took the family out for a birthday mean and the food was excellent however the service was below expectations. The servers were nice but very inattentive... we waited approximately 45 minutes for our meals however in that time we didn’t get a status update from the server to say how long we would have to wait. When the meal came it was amazing and beautifully prepared but the slow service took away from the birthday celebration. We have been to Gusto before and this was our first experience with an issue so we will be back to try again for sure.

It's 2019 and Port Hope is the kind of town that one would expect to be vegan friendly, yet Trattoria Gusto does not offer much for vegans (including a simple non dairy alternative for coffee). So many restaurants we go to have lots to choose from - TG its time to keep up with the times.

The food that we had and the service provided was excellent. We were disappointed that two of the items we had specially gone to Trattoria to have were not available. It was a rainy day and we were looking for homemade soup and Brussels sprouts. Neither was available.

Sorry, but we couldn't rate food much because we left before meal. They were so busy because of a show going on in area that it was beyond our expectations when we said we could be slower to serve. We were celebrating wedding anniversary and staying at Hotel. We think waitress misunderstood that it was okay not to rush for us but we would have liked to have appetizer served to help keep evening going. It was almost 1.5 hrs before we brought notice about that. Then my husband got his appetizer and mine didn't come. I was starving...they did keep saying they were sorry, offered more bread, but by this time we had two glasses of wine each and wanted food on our stomach. It was getting so late, we did have a reservation but we obviously hit them on a bad night. The staff were friendly and apologetic but it just didn't cut it for us so it was easier to leave and had an ice cream cone down the street to walk the park area.
I do say we wouldn't recommend but we would let people know that we never did try the food, we did see everyone else getting great dishes though. It looked good! We did have a great relaxing time at Gusto's bar before. Just would have liked to have a meal on our anniversary. They did not charge for what we did get so we thank them for that.

The wait staff at Gusto were very attentive and professional. They went out of their way to make our birthday celebration special. The pizza and salad were delicious. Eggs and bacon were a bit pricey. Thank you.

We have been to Trattoria Gusto many times, and we always enjoy the experience. We were there for brunch and the chef very kindly made us a pizza not on the brunch menu (we’re vegan). It was absolutely amazing - one of the best pizzas ever!

Very much enjoyed our meal at Trattoria. Our table of 4 was seated immediately and the ambiance was beautiful - simple yet rustic and elegant. The bread was amazing...warm and chewy on the outside...yum. We all very much enjoyed what we ordered - from Chicken Parm to seafood Risotto to a tomato roasted chicken pasta. Everything was delicious, hot and good sized portions. Service was friendly and quick. A definite must if you're looking for something a little more upscale that than norm and you're in Port Hope.
