Gusto Italiano Restaurant Restaurant Review

: The menu at this familiar formula spot consists of pasta, veal and chicken dishes that are dressed with some type of sauce --- often red. This leads, then, to dishes like chicken Parmigiana and sautéed calamari and kalamata olives over linguine. You’ll also find favorites like chicken Vesuvio, antipasto salad and grilled octopus. However, if you only get one thing, make it the eggplant rollatini. In the end, it's a nice family place with red-checked tablecloths and a garden-like atmosphere --- just don't expect to be floored.
