As the autumn nights are closing in, the temperatures are dropping and the clocks are going back my food choices change. Out go the salads and light meals instead I start to crave comfort food. Big steaming pots of casseroles, stews and my favourite pasta.

So when invited along to check out the newest Italian restaurant on the Lisburn road, I was hoping for authentic Italian cooking which would leave you feeling full and with a smile on your face.

Il Gusto did not disappoint the restaurant is small but cosy. Has a modern feel and very well trained staff. I had a mouth watering dinner starting with some delicious meatballs, I had a comforting salmon dish for main and my favourite chocolate fudge cake for desert. I was feed like a queen and enjoyed every morsel.Food is comforting, portion sizes are perfect and the menu is vaste with lots of fresh local ingredients and homemade treats so lots for the picky eaters out there. I also found the prices to be reasonable for Belfast. Check out the menu below.



Overall it’s another great addition to the Lisburn road and I am sure I will be back over the threshold very soon.
