Championing locally sourced ingredients, the authentic, fully licensed ristorante known as Il Gusto serves the people of Belfast some truly irresistible Italian cuisine.
A stylishly subtle interior projects a warming, welcoming ambience that’s ideal for a casual meet up as well as an intimate date night, as if guests aren’t immersed in conversation the food will certainly do the talking for them.
A wealth of wondrous Italian dishes, ranging from hearty pastas to light salads, are available to one and all to enjoy, yet these delicious dishes can be savoured at a superb price by tastecard members when they call in advance with their card.
The menu may be concise yet every selection is overflowing with flavour, as can be seen straight away in the sublime starters, with merit-worthy picks such as the rich Capesantee Risotto, mixed with seafood and king scallops, the refreshing Insalata di Avocado Barbabietola, a mixed leaf salad tossed with roast beetroot, avocado and a lemon dressing, and the juicy Polpette al Pomodoro, Italian meatballs in a special house sauce.
Equally as exquisite are the main dishes, which offer just the right amount of variety for carnivorous and herbivorous diners alike. Particularly tantalising dishes include the scrumptious Raviolo alla Zucca, ravioli stuffed with sweet potato and roast pumpkin, the succulent Bistecca alla Griglia, a 10oz ribeye steak garnished with rocket leaves and an herb garlic butter, and the delectable Pollo Capagnola, Parma ham wrapped chicken filled with spinach, feta cheese and sun blushed tomatoes and covered in a mushroom sauce.
Some utterly divine desserts are also available, providing the perfect Italian three course meal, as well as a few nightcap worthy liquor coffees for those in need of a particularly smooth conclusion to the meal. Whatever the occasion, diners are advised to quell those Italian cravings at Il Gusto.
