In the Cookridge suburb of Leeds is Gusto, a contemporary Italian restaurant and bar. Away from the chaos of the city centre, Gusto is a fantastic place to relax of an evening, catering a vast choice of food and drink which can be enjoyed in the restaurant’s buzzing atmosphere.
Gusto is a sleek and modern answer to traditional Italian dining. The interior is charming and elegant, lustrous and sophisticated. Wooden tables and plush leather sofas balance the décor perfectly between classic Italian design and smooth modern style. Choose between the comfort and privacy of a booth seat, or the social hub of open tables further down the dining space. Take advantage of the free Wi-Fi connection if you’re visiting on a business lunch or need to stay connected. These elements combined create a great atmosphere for all occasions, whether you’re there for great food, great wine or great cocktails.
A vast menu means that there is something for everyone, and a carefully selected wine list is separated by region, allowing you to choose the perfect wine to compliment your food. The restaurant prides itself in creating its dishes from traditional and sustainable sources, and the wood burning oven gives you the authentic taste of traditional Italian cooking in a stylish cosmopolitan setting. Gusto boasts an authentic homemade dough recipe too, originally sourced from a Tuscan monk. Try the slow roast pork pizza for richness, or a beautiful tagliatelli with prawns, garlic and sweet chilli tomato sauce. Meat lovers will be in heaven with the choice of 28 day aged premium steaks and a variety of other dishes, such as roast lamb rump. Gusto also accommodates for special dietary requirements, offering wheat and gluten free options on all its pasta dishes.
