There is a remarkable current of wonder running through this festive family owned restaurant with its devotion to homemade pasta and wood fired pizza. Their dishes are inspired by Executive Chef Michele Cremonese and his family recipes which highlight local and seasonal ingredients. This family owned restaurant offers a full service bar featuring Italian and California wines, specialty cocktails and craft beer. A visit is truly not complete without ordering one of the of the fresh pasta dishes or incredible pizzas. Place the Linguine Carbonara at the top of your list, for the sheer fact that the pasta is tossed tableside with fresh organic egg yolk and parmigiano. And your meal would not be
Food is so delicious! Due to the shutdown, we've been picking up our orders, this doesn't change the friendly service we receive every time! We recommend the Wood Fire Chicken for sure! Excellent meal at a reasonable price!

Thank you for kind review and being one of the family.
This place was next to our motel. So out of convenience we tried it. I’m so happy we did. The pizza was delicious and the chicken marsala was the best I ever had. I can never order it at another restaurant again, cause I’ll always...be comparing it to Gustos! #brokedamouthMore

Met a friend here for lunch today, and we both decided on a pizza. The pizza price was excessive, $21, to begin with. I asked that one type of prosciutto be substituted for another, and the waitperson said it wouldn't be a problem. I chose...to drink water, but it was very lukewarm. I ended the meal with a double cappuccino. The bill came to $36 before tip for basically a pizza and coffee. I saw that an extra $6 had been added for the prosciutto, and when I questioned it, the waitperson said it was an add-on per the menu. She failed to mention it when I asked. But I noticed they didn't give me a credit for the prosciutto I didn't use. While the pizza was good, I'll never go back. I live part of the year in Italy where exceptional pizza is available for about $10, so I'm going to limit my pizza consumption to the country where it was invented. I keep trying to find something reasonable here, but it just doesn't exist - even $15 would be Ok for a decent pizza. How can a family of 4 afford these ridiculous prices?More
They are back to doing Dine-In!! Cheese Pizza: Solid flop, overall good crunch. Tasty cheese but not overpowering. Sauce was on point. 9 on the pizza scale. Perfect combination. We just found our go to spot. We also had Spaghetti Marinara: great sauce, thick noodles,...Fresh Basil. Very tasty as well. Then to finish it off we had Tiramisu, the presentation was phenomenal. Sweet treat, well made, I’m not a huge coffee fan so a few bites were a little too much for me but my husband thoroughly enjoyed. I believe our servers name was Diego, friendly fella, and quick to clean up and fill our drinks. We’ll be back again!More
This is my first review ever!
You would think that if you order something other than pizza you should get silverware (plastic)?! Well not here!
Ordered pizza, seafood linguine and a Cesar salad...
Just like anyone, I would eat my pizza without but have you...tried to eat a salad or linguine without a fork?!
Of course, he was there with the bill and a pen! Where is my tip?!!!!
Now let’s talk about the food. The pizza and the salad were ok. No much of a challenge! But the linguine...don’t know what the reviewer that claim this is good Italian food. Mia nonna and mama, would think totally different!
All in all...avoid this restaurant, no good service and the food not much better!More
They are NOT set up for curbside pickup. We waited for one hour in the parking lot on Mother's Day. They came right up to us to look at our phone for the order #--even though we already told them--they had to see it themselves,...so they did not maintain distance when that was the whole point! They were unapologetic and very unprofessional. The food was cold and the pasta was bone dry. Literally--stuck together parpadelle with one artichoke. $26 ?? a total rip off. We will never go back.More
Best Italian food I’ve had in awhile! Arrived in town for a conference and wanted to check out this place due to their handcrafted pasta and Italian options. Everything was delicious and the staff were incredible friendly. Ordered the Gorgonzola gnochetti which was amazing and...probably the best Gorgonzola sauce I’d ever had, and was a perfect size appetizer. For dinner, I ordered the Spaghetti Bagilio which was delicious with added shrimp. Best pancetta and red tomato sauce with perfectly al dente homemade spaghetti noodles. Dessert was their tiramisu which was also incredible. Definitely hit this place up if you’re in town and looking for authentic Italian!More

Everything was excellent. We arrived early and had wine, beer and calamari from the happy hour menu. The black berry salad was enough for 2. I ordered the artichoke ravioli, it was perfect. My son had pasta carbonara, delicious. My husband had the pizza, so...good. Loaded with cheese and toppings.More
