Belfast’s first truly authentic Italian restaurant

Created by a group of Italian food and wine producers and restaurateurs who have been working in the food industry for more than 30 years, Gusto è restaurant (meaning ‘taste is’) is intended as a showcase for authentic, artisan Italian produce and cuisine. They have created a meeting place in Belfast between great food lovers and traditional Italian producers.

Gusto è brought in top Italian chefs, authentic Italian ingredients and beautiful Italian wines from small producers to bring the real taste of Italy to Belfast.

The main restaurant offers classic Italian cuisine just as you would find in Italy, expertly prepared by top chefs Philly d’Uva and Nicola Attianese, with antipasti, primi (pasta courses), secondi (fish, meat or vegetarian main courses) and dolci (desserts). Gourmet pizzas are expertly prepared by our highly skilled Italian pizzaiolo. You can also enjoy exquisite artisan wines by the glass with small plates of cold cuts, antipasti and cheese.

Gusto è offers a programme of exciting food and wine pairing events with live music throughout the year.
