Gustoso Ristorante & Enoteca Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Though close to the hell that is Victoria station environs, Gustoso is tucked away on a quiet and unassuming side street. It's a soothing place with good straightforward food, interesting and good value wines often by the carafe, and helpful service. It feels Italian in an unstaged way."
