Fabulous Food. Medicore Drinks. Awful Service

Food - good selection. tasted fabulous. Good portions. We had pasta, mozarella balls, and panna cotta and tiramisu
Drinks - seemed limited. Dirty martini was not proportionate. Singapore Sling was alright. They will not serve water.
Ambiance - for weeknight it was nice, quiet , charming. We had outdoor non smoking table.

Location - right in middle of orchard road and the mrt

Service - awful. The entre order of out food arrived at the same time, without the soup. The waiter failed to key in the soup. So we cancel. We were expecting to have drinks and the mozarella balls. But no the entire order came, followed by drinks. This left us disappointed, and was a bit angry at first. But realized it was pointless to talk to manager if their staff was like this. A weeknight meant it was not busy at all, but messing with our order made us think not to go back again. Even though the food was pretty good.

a step above Pasta-Mania or Pizza Hut, but nothing fantastic that I would recommend.  the quality of the place made it more appropriate for the lower levels of ION. Also they charged us a dollar for a cup of plain, un-bottled warm water for my wife.  To me, charging for tap water is aggressively low-class.

The competition of Italian F&B outfits is stiff, so Gusto needs to work harder

Went there for Saturday lunch, seated outdoor as the ambience outdoor is rather pleasant. It's a raining afternoon, so the weather was not hot and made outdoor sitting comfortable.
 
 Order 5 items:
 
 1. Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese
 2. Wagyu Steak
 3. Coldcut Platter
 4. Cabonara Pizza
 5. Prawn Squid Ink Risotto
 
 In an Italian restaurant which I have not been to and where Squid Ink items are avaiable, I will definitely ordered and this is how I gauge the skills of the chef. Results: It is decently done but a little too salty. Prawns are not entirely very fresh but it's acceptable (i hope it's not cos I am using a discount voucher and hence there is selective ingredient used here)
 
 The other items are ok but the wagyu beef is not impressive as it's cold when served and we are very sure it's not a cold dish.
 Servcie was ok..but it takes the serve staff long to refill our water and we needed to ask a few times. It's not crowded at all by the way.
 
 I indicated "recommended" as it's not that bad until I should put a thumb down. But I am hesitant to visit them again with so many other good Italian restarants around which serve much higher standard Italian food at the same price.

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
