There’s not much this homely but classy Italian venue at Portside Wharf can’t do. With views looking over the Brisbane River from its Hercules Street spot in Hamilton, its location already makes it a winner for an evening cocktail or glass of wine whatever comes next. But what comes next is enough to make Gusto Da Giani a winner wherever it is, with a slew of fantastic Italian food that is refined but grounded in family-style Italian eating. From beef carpaccio or zucchini flowers to start, through an encyclopedia of gourmet pizzas and pastas, onto spectacular seafood and meat mains (the rolled pork belly stuffed with pistachios and grilled salmon with saffron sauce are just two highlights) and decadent desserts, this elegant Brisbane eatery has something to delight all tastebuds and any group size (they have room for hundreds as a function venue, too). To make sure you and your family or group don’t miss out, it’s wise to make reserve bookings because Gusto Da Giani gets busy!
Great food was had by all. Not a crumb was left. As I'm From an Italian background we have great expectations about food. Can honestly say they've passed with flying colours. Bravissimo!!
Always a pleasure whenever we visit. The staff are lovely and friendly, the food is simply delicious, which is why we keep coming back. Location is great with the river breezes on a warm day and just as interesting when the cruise liners come to visit.
One of the best restaurants at northside. Food was excellent ( as usual ), service was good and fast. We went there for birthday party, and my daughter felt special when all staff sang Happy Birthday. Would highly recommend !
Great service & food. Try the warm olives they are sensational. Daughter had wedding reception there 4 years ago & the service is still as good
Gusto Da Gianni has always been my "go-to" place for superb pizza. But it's not just the pizza that is good there; I had the lamb cutlets which were fantastic! Service is always excellent, even on days where they're very busy.
Great experience. Authentic Italian food and wine served by friendly and attentive staff. Lots of birthday celebrations going on with staff enthusiastically joining in. I can thoroughly recommend Gustos. We have been there before and this time we brought a couple of friends who were very impressed. We will certainly be going back, though we will leave a bit earlier because finding a car park can take a while.
Great evening , lovely food ,Gusto Da Gianni is easy to get to have parking on the river with great views , very nice restaurant to take family and friends to eat
Service was exceptional as was the food and attention to detail. Perfect location beside the river and the breeze kept us cool after such a hot day. Only issue [if you could call it that] was that although booking was for 5.30 pm restaurant had us in at 7.30. Table was ready for us anyway so as I say this was not really an issue. Thank you for making our Xmas dinner such a fantastic night.
Excellent food, excellent service, extensive wine cellar - one of our favourite restuarants! The menu caters to all tastes - we try to have something different each time and have never been let down. The 500ml wine carafes is a bonus - sometimes we dont want a full bottle.
Ease of online booking was a treat The excellent staff so courteous without being overly attentive Opened exactly on time Resturant was clean and fresh OH and the food was simply perfect Cant wait to visit again authentic italian
