Gusto Da Gianni

Hamilton Italian $$$$ +100

About Gusto Da Gianni

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!

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.

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.

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.

Nothing special! No arancini balls to start with they had run out! Chilli prawns were served in a watery tomato sauce. Garlic bread was very heavy. Seafood pasta was huge with very little seafood. The duck ravioli was OK as was the pork and potato. Service was very ordinary! We were given the dessert menu and no one bothered to come back for our order so we left! It was Father's Day so we just expected better!

The food was excellent. Unfortunately we had difficulties paying the bill. We were a group of 8, we wanted to pay part cash and part credit card and they could not accommodate this. We had pre-calculated how we would split the amounts but they still wouldn't entertain the request. Spoiled what was otherwise a nice meal.

My last experience at Gusto da Gianni was wonderful. The waitress were very nice and kind. The food was very nice. I loved the surprise birthday feast when my cake arrived and the lovely touch on it. Keep up the good service.

Service was very good and friendly. Our antipasti shared platter was huge & amazing. Main course was equally enjoyed by all. The veal saltimbocca was the best I've ever had. Veal so tender.

Over priced for Average Italian Food, Good service in a nice location. On paying the bill I was not asked if I would like my parking ticket validated & therefore paid an additional $8 for parking.
