Sure we know what a ristorante is in these enlightened days. But many will be in the dark when it comes to the term enoteca. Well, allow Gustoso Ristorante & Enoteca in London’s Westminster to demonstrate the meaning of both. An enoteca is literally an Italian wine repository, a place where guests can sample and learn about a range of fine wines. With authentic Italian food served up in the welcoming atmosphere of a traditional Italian enoteca, Gustoso’s Willow Place premises are perfect for a drink with friends, a light bistro-style snack, or a full trattoria-style meal.

Westminster’s Gustoso Ristorante & Enoteca is in good company, joining the London Restaurants family alongside trattoria Al Duca and Osteria dell’Angolo. Classic and Italian dishes come together here, presented to guests by staff selected for their knowledge and passion for Italian cuisine and wine. That’s for the best, because Gustoso’s wine list is long, as befits a place billing itself as an enoteca. A huge range of Italian and international wines are represented, with a good many available by the half bottle, which makes this Willow Place trattoria a great place for an after-work drink or aperitif.
As for Gustoso Ristorante & Enoteca’s food, the menu is classically structured according to Italian tradition, but also includes a great selection of stuzzichini, small dishes perfect with drinks. All of Gustoso’s dishes use only fresh and seasonal ingredients, and these variations are reflected in the daily-changing specials that are available both at lunch and dinner time. The warm and welcoming ambience at this Willow Place trattoria, with an open kitchen and stands of wine dotting the dining room, makes Westminster’s Gustoso perfect for private hire. There’s even a separate, intimate dining room that can accommodate up to 16 people. This is as good a spot to sample Italian food and drink enoteca style as you’ll find anywhere in London.
Another very enjoyable evening with friends at Gustoso. Thanks !
All the staffs were very kind and quick to take order and serve. Also, the foods and the bottles of wine were excellent! We enjoyed the dinner and we recommend this restaurant as one of the most reasonable restaurants in London!
I went to Gustoso for the first time and I was really impressed. The dishes were well presented and the staff was very friendly. Food and wine are outstanding. If you want to try some proper Italian dishes I strongly suggest Gustoso!
