Il Gusto Review

Chicken Ceasar

So impressed!

There's a new addition on the Lisburn Road and it is definitely a welcome one. Il Gusto is a modern Italian that packs a punch. 

We went for dinner here last week and it couldn't have been better. First up, the decor is modern, confutable and stylist - a delicate balance that's hard to create. It's a relatively small restaurant seating maximum forty people. This small set up creates an intimate dining experience, perfect for couples. 

The menu is great - there's all the Italian favourites with some additional dishes such as mussels. For starter I went for Caesar salad which came fantastically presented. It was loaded with thinly but bacon and tender chicken. The portion was just enough without being overly filling. A great set up for main. I went for pizza for main and my girlfriend went for tagliatelle so we could mix and match. The pizza was incredible spicy, but that's exactly what I was after. The tagliatelle was great, loaded with chicken and spicy peppers also giving it a real authentic flavour. Although we were full we couldn't resist having dessert. Once again we mixed and matched. I ordered chocolate fudge cake and my girlfriend went for cheesecake. Both delicious. The coconut ice cream was incredible - a must try! 

I can't recommend Il Gusto enough. You won't be disappointed.
