I write with huge reluctance the recent decline of one of my all-time favourite restaurants. The ambiance and service staff continue to be amazing, but the kitchen, in my last few visits, has been very disappointing. My go-to dinner option is Puttanesca – linguine with...More

Our group of 12 was seated promptly and the orders taken. The complimentary bread with oil and balsamic was much appreciated -- the bread was freshly baked and still warm -- delicious. Our meals took about 40 minutes to arrive, and everyone was served within...More

A feel of the past. Beautiful setting and a feel of going back in time. The food and drink was exceptional. The staff were great and professional. The restaurant was clean and quiet. An evening to remember.

Enjoyed a nice family lunch yesterday. The hostess..non descript, but our server was very friendly. We shared a couple of appetizers...bruschetta & a large antipasto platter. I believe a restaurant needs to adhere to whatever is on their menu, unless you are informed of any...More

We have some amazing food in Port Hope and Gusto is my favourite. Lovely wine choices (with an always welcome heavy pour), fresh bread, delightful staff and delicious food. My go to is the Puttanesca and it never disappoints. Still the best restaurant in town.

We moved to Colborne a year ago and are still looking for a good restaurant to be our new ‘regular’ spot. I called last Sunday afternoon to ask if the patio was open for lunch and was told that it was. We drove all the...More
