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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
