Great service nice open space. The new roof has improved the flow of traffic, nice to to have to trip over the umbrella stands and constantly rearranging angle.
Four us all enjoyed our food.
We will definitely be coming back.

We made reservations through Open Table for 11:45 am & arrived 5 minutes early. An employee hanging flower baskets informed us the restaurant had changed it's policy and wasn't opening until 12:00 noon. Eventually, some one else came by & said we would be seated shortly. The tables were a couple feet away from us and a line up had started behind us. I explained 20 minutes was too long for my husband to stand after having hip surgery but we still weren't offered a seat. At one point, an employee rolled her eyes at me & shook her head like I was asking too much. Luckily the food was amazing and our server was great. They could definitely benefit from a better "front of house" crew though.

Great patio. Expect a little bit of noice from the street if you go on the weekend. Food is some of the best I've had in Northumberland since I've moved here.

The food was delicious, the environment was very welcoming, a bit noisy with motorcycles and loud mufflers but that was out of their control.

We want to thank the staff at Trattoria Gusto for an amazing lunch on the first day of re-opening after this long and exhausting 3rd wave. Service was great, food was timely and tasty and it was so nice to be doing something normal once again.

Our party of 3 felt completely safe as the tables were nicely space, signage was clear for covid regulations.

Great job!

We came here for lunch.
Prompt service and terrific food.
It was our wedding anniversary and we received a free desert.
We also had a table at the window that was overlooking the river and we could see trout trying to navigate the rapids going upstream.
We live about 90 km away from Port Hope and have been to this restaurant at least a half dozen times during the past couple of years and ate both inside and on the outdoor patio.
Always liked coming here and will definitely be back.

This is a lovely restaurant located in a historical hotel right downtown surrounded by great little shops.
It was a great way to end our day. We can't wait to visit again.

We went there for a birthday celebration, and had a very good time. It's a nice space, with good food. I loved the pizza, and duck wings! It's a little pricy, but for a special occasion it was a great experience.

This is a very nice restaurant with delicious offerings. It’s a little pricey but still worth going to. I found the service was good but a little inattentive for my liking considering the lower occupancy. Looking forward to trying it in the spring/summer on the patio.
Bruschetta, grilled brussel sprouts, braised beef rib were all very flavourful and plentiful.

I love Gusto, unfortunately the last time I was there my meal was just not up to par. Having said that I am going again in a day's time. Every restaurant kitchen has an off day. My two friends loved their meals

Food quality was excellent and our service was excellent. Two tables of families with small children, arrived for the last 20 minutes of our meal, which changed the atmosphere completely. Overall a great experience and we will return to try more of the menu in the future!

Love the vibe, the restaurant is next to the river at dinning area and the sunlight came through from the windows are just chill and warm. They accept online booking, much easier for customer to make adjustment.
Food is good, too. We enjoyed the dishes very much.
The server was friendly and she always checked on us *5 stars to her.
Thanks for opening during during such hard time (pandemic) for everyone, and thanks for the hard works on sanitizing.
Will definitely recommend your place to friends and families.

Our experience at Gusto was lovely. Our server was a delight. The menu was inviting. The food was delicious and very generous. They were very conscious of social distancing and safe practises. We had decided to share dishes and they arrive proportioned. The only teeny tiny thing that could have been better was that our table was in a bit of a dark corner. But we were early for our reservation and didn't specify. It was so, so nice to have a quality meal out and just be able to relax. Thank you! We'll be back soon.
