At this chic bar and bistro, Singapore diners can experience la dolce vita (the good life, that is). Located in ION Orchard on Orchard Turn, just off of Singapore’s buzzing Orchard Road, Gusto serves up delicious Italian cuisine alongside wines, spirits and cocktails, in an al fresco setting. To snap up one of the best tables, make a reservation in advance.
At Singapore’s Gusto, located only a stone’s throw from Orchard Road, you could sit inside in the stylish bar or head to the outdoor dining area and dine al fresco, surrounded by luscious greenery. Begin your meal with some mozzarella balls before moving on to the main affair. You’ll find all of the Italian classics on the menu, from pasta and risottos to rustic meat and seafood dishes. We recommend the sea urchin risotto or the squid ink vongole with clams and a white wine sauce, while pizza lovers will be delighted with the range of woodfired offerings available.
Try the pizza burratas, a thin and crispy base loaded with basil pesto, gorgonzola, scamorza, mozzarella and parmigiano. Pair your meal with some Italian wine, or go for one of Gusto’s handcrafted cocktails, and finish it all off with an Italian favourite like the tiramisu, or some pear tart tartin. Located inside ION Orchard on Orchard Turn, a trip to Gusto is the perfect way to round off a day spent shopping in the area, or for a special evening out in the Orchard Road area of Singapore.
Had a great evening. The meal was superb with excellent service and great ambience. Worth the bill. We will definitely return for one more round.
Hearty portions for the price. Loved the salad and the squid ink risotto
It was pretty hard to get the attention of the staff, but food was decent and so were the prices. Nice place to sit and chill, great for catching up with friends.
Generous portion. Unfortunately food and service was average. Used the Entertainer.
We ordered the crab pasta and carbonara pizza as it sounded really interesting and it definitely didn't sound like your usual pizza. Food wise it was satisfactory where portions were just nice and the two items were just right for two people but the restaurant experience of course boils down to service as well. We have read countless reviews before trying gusto out and many mentioned their service as one that really spoiled the entire meal. To us service at gusto was not up to par for the price we were paying for each dish but could ultimately be due to them being shorthanded. It was hard to get their attention and the worse was when our order took over an hour. It could possible be even longer if not for the fact that we raised it to their attention that we had waited a good hour. We later found out that the order was not processed at all but we let it off as the waiter was really apologetic about it. I guess in summary if you are just there for the food, go for it but if you are hoping for the service to be up to the same standards, do mentally prepare yourself first.
The food was tasty with the thin Pizza with mushroom and truffles quite crispy and nicely textured. I also like the wagyu beef platter though it was a bit too peppery for me. Nonetheless, the beef slices were quite tender. The tuna salad had a great balance in flavour and freshness. Overall, the restaurant left me wanting to go back again to try other things on the menu.
The food was good. There was a small hiccup with our reservation. When my friend arrived. They told her there was no reservation made. I arrived shortly after and they found our reservation which was good. We were showed our table only to be told moments later our table was outdoor. I insisted I had booked for indoor table so they allowed us to keep the table.
This was my second visit. We ordered Black Angus ribeye steak and Wagyu pepper rum steak. Both were disappointing. The ribeye was 1/3 third fats while the rum steak was more a pepper than a steak dish. There was so much pepper that even after scrapping away most of the visible pepper, it was still overpowering with pepper taste. We will go back again but will stick to their pasta dishes.
Service was a little slow. Seems to be short handed. Overall food was ok. Could do a little better with the ambience indoor. Tables are too close to one another which doesnt leave much privacy for conversation over dinner.
Mushroom risotto is cooked very well, but the seafood squid ink pizza we ordered tastes bland. Service definitely needs improvement. It wasnt so busy at lunch time but the staff seems to be rushing when we got there.
