This is the first in a series of (again) delayed posts. Life gets in the way of having fun on occasion… 🙂
Raegan and the kids and I had dinner at Pizzaria Gusto last night. We were in midtown, we drove by, and it didn’t look crowded, so in we went.
We ate outside in the courtyard area as the temps were pretty nice. We walked through the main dining area, and it struck me as being very loud.
This is traditional pizza from Italy, not Hideaway, so if you were expecting a Big Country you might be disappointed.
Raegan and Erin split a Margherita, adding prosciutto (ham) and extra cheese. Ian had a Margherita, adding soppressata (salami) and some roast garlic. I had a meatball pizza. The crusts were hand tossed and pretty doughy but had good flavor. Toppings were sorta on the thin side (not atypical of art pizza). No one had any negative comments, but not all that many positive either. I though my meatballs were bland.
We had sorbet, affogato (think a hot fudge sundae except the ice cream is gelato and the hot fudge is expresso), and a chocolate tart. All OK.
We all had water to drink as our advance party didn’t find iced tea on the menu. Service was pretty good. Our check was $74.24.
We usually spend about $50 at Hideaway for Americanized pizza, so you pay a premium for the art pizza at Gusto. It was not bad pizza, but it’s probably not something we would do often.
