A taste of Italy in Southport

Gusto is a trattoria with a nice line in cheerful bonhomie and some good and proper Italian cooking. The two rooms are looked over by the charming service team and the open kitchen adds to the buzz of the place. The food does not attempt to reinvent the wheel, just to do things properly. The pizzas are very good - the 'ortolana', for example, topped with grilled vegetables - while octopus salad is a first course filled with the flavours of the Med. Pasta is made in-house and desserts such as pannacotta with raspberries and caramel sauce hit the spot.
