Good local restaurant

Nice local family restaurant. Good house red with nice food if not eclectic menu! We will come back I’m sure

One of the best meals out we’ve had in a good few years. Food was superb, service was excellent. We’ll be back very soon to try the Tapas menu.

Highly Recommended

First time dining out since lock down. Whoopee ! Decided to support local as could walk down. Not disappointed. We both had the risotto one as a starter, one as a main course. Fantastic. I had the crab pasta as a main course, my wife had the mozzarella as a starter, both gorgeous. We were recommended the Sicilian Rose and we were not disappointed. Two courses each, bottle of wine, 10% tip, bargain at £77.00. We will be regulars. Highly recommended.

Even better than when they were based in Chorleywood

We used to visit Gusto regularly in Chorleywood before the restaurant moved to Amersham. It was previously ranked 1st in Chorleywood on TripAdvisor. Reviews started from scratch again after they moved to Amersham, but it’s the same great chef and the food is even better than we remembered. The new tapas menu was lovely, lots of variety to choose from and all extremely tasty, all of the brilliant quality we’ve come to expect from Allan the chef. Our 2-year-old also loves the food, and she’ll eat anything Allan cooks up (even all the vegetables!), but she especially likes the spring rolls. The new homemade ice cream is also brilliant and we can’t get enough. We’d highly recommend it.
