The menu has a lot of choice and I was struggling to decide between a couple of dishes. I settled on the crab spaghetti with chilli and garlic. Overall, This... More

Came with my girlfriend on 3rd of May and everything about this place was amazing. Such a lovely looking restaurant and a very warm welcome as soon as we entered. The food was exceptional and all of the staff were amazing. I would definitely visit this restaurant again

Visited this restaurant with friends, the food was lovely however not good for what you pay as the portions are rather small which is a shame..quick pop in to local chippy on way home was an added bonus.

Tagliatelle and prawns for starters and lamb for the main course. It was all fair enough albeit that there was not enough vegetables with the lamb. Presentation was good and service was warm and friendly. The maitre d' could have smiled a bit more) but you don't mind a bit of moodiness from the hostess. Food was just a bit... More

Great food as usual with several nice veggie choices. Only problem was that my plate was almost snatched away before I had finished eating, (put down your knife and fork at your peril)!

Description
Style served in the heart of Yorkshire. In the leafy Leeds suburb of Cookridge sits a 200-year old Olive tree, providing the perfect backdrop to the timeless elegance of Gusto. Add to that a superb wine and cocktail list and you'll get a real flavour of Italy combined with proper Yorkshire class.
