Italian cooking with the hallmark of our famous Italian head chef Fabrizio Fattuci is what makes Gusto. But that's not all. Gusto is an Italian restaurant in the heart of St Petersburg, which combines the classic and the cosy, style and simplicity, and of course friendly service - all rare signs of great taste!
And the word "gusto" means exactly this - "taste". Our menu has already become legendary around the city. Roman rabbit with artichoke and pecorino cheese, beetroot risotto with gorgozola ice-cream, cappelaci with duck, ricotta sauce and red wine caramel...... head chef Fabrizio has travelled extensively around Italy, and in every region picked up new skills, new aromas, and new tastes, all of which he magically combined to create the menu for Gusto.
Our hospitality is renowned and valued by many of our famous customers.And Fabrizio always passes on their warm words to his Grandma Luigiana. This 90-year-old protector of Italian culinary traditions is now known far from her home in Lazio! It has been known on more than one occasion for people to travel from other cities to Gusto, just to try her unforgettable aubergine parmigiana.
Here at Gusto, we also take special pride in our vinoteque. This is the biggest wine storage system in St Petersburg, allowing us to serve any wine on our list by the glass. Instead of ordering a full bottle, our guests are able to sample many different sorts of wine in 25ml servings. We love the idea of the apperitif, and the first floor of our restaurant is the ideal place to meet friends after a hard day at work, or for a quick break between shops. And on our cosy summer terrace, just a stone's throw from Nevsky Prospekt, you can quietly sip a cappuccino with some mago tart or panna cotta with juicy forest berries.
Another unique feature of Gusto is Apartment Number 2 - a private area for guests, where you can enjoy all the advantages of a top class home-style restaurant. It comprises two rooms - a dining area and a lounge with a television and soft sofas. It is the perfect place to celebrate a birthday, throw a family dinner party, or have a private meal with your business partners. Guests in the apartment are not limited on their food choice, being able to order any dish on the menu or make a personal request. At Gusto, everything is like is should be at home. In the best home.
