Gusto Italian

Gusto Italian

The crab fettuccine at Gusto in Edinburgh, Scotland was a delicious goodbye for my last dinner in Scotland.

By the time I’d arrived at Gusto Italian at 8:36pm, I’d already received four “I’m sorry, the kitchen is closed” responses from four different restaurants. Frankly the Edinburgh nightlife is set up for drinking to excess until 1am – without food. So, it’s safe to say I was feeling a bit hangry when I walked up to the doors of Gusto Italian and asked the hostess if the kitchen was still open.

When she said “yes, come on in,” I was ecstatic.

Soon I was seated and began browsing the menu.

The BOMBAY & WATERMELON (Bombay Citron Pressé, watermelon juice, mint, lemon and Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic) cocktail was up first. Followed closely by the GUSTO DOUGH PETALS™ (with tomato, crispy shallots, and homemade Romesco).

When my CRAB FETTUCCINE (in a rich lobster bisque, finished with butter, dill and red chilli) arrived, I was excited. With extra shaved at the table parmesan cheese and a little salt and pepper, it was exactly what I wanted for my last night in Edinburgh.
