Having an Italian father as a chef, I can remember playing with the pizza dough in his restaurant when I was a little boy. For my holidays as a child, I always went to stay with my Grandma Silvia, in Bolzano, Trentino Alto-Adige. Her kitchen was my favourite place to be and cooking became the most exciting time of each day.
Going down to the markets, with all those smells, colours and tastes of the fresh ingredients, just couldn’t have been any better. That’s when I knew what I wanted to do.
Finishing school couldn’t come soon enough, and this was when I went off to learn my trade in some fantastic kitchens around Northern Italy.
After meeting my partner, Alex, and learning his expertise was in hotel management, we decided to venture into business together and in 2013 the restaurant was born.
Here at Gusto we pride ourselves in sourcing and importing the freshest and most authentic Italian produce available for our customers to savour.
