There are a good amount of Italian restaurants in Glasgow, and Gusto is one of the new kids on the block. I have tried Prezzo, Zizzi, Tony Macaroni, Bella Italia etc and found them nice but nothing special. I have a special place in my heart for Italy and Italian food so not finding a good Italian was a little disappointing.

Recently though I did find an Italian that is joint place with Gusto for me, but thats another review.

I tried to get in to Gusto a few weeks ago but due to it being very popular there were no tables free, but I have to admit the girl that was on the front was very pleasant. So I did the smart thing and book in advance.

The interior is very nice, its got a nice posh but casual atmosphere. It even has a small section outside at the front, that on a nice sunny day (granted Glasgow doesn’t get many) it would be nice to sit outside.

Starter:

I started with the mixed olives while waiting for my meal, these were very nice but sadly they had seeds which put me right off them so I only took half.

My starter was Calamari deep fried with lemon mayonnaise. This was very nice and was a good sized portion something I would have again.

Main :

My main course was Spaghetti Carbonara, one of my favourite Italian meals. This was done the correct way with eggs, and not cream and very tasty. If your a Carbonara fan get this, I also got a side of Polenta chips which worked very well with this.

Dessert:

Last I got a Chocolate Fondue which is to share and yes before you think what a pig I did share with my friend. To be honest its a good size, but I could have easily had one to myself.

Overall :

Overall my first experience at Glasgow Gusto Italian was very good, this and the Italian Cafe are currently my 2 fav Italians in Glasgow.

Next time I go back i will try different items.
