Boasting expert chefs who prepare fresh pasta, focaccia, desserts and more each day, it is a restaurant to impress foodies.
Excellent food and service. So glad to have discovered this place.
By far the most genuine Italian in London, requires booking in advance most times
Superb as always!
Con gusto was honestly excellent Especially considering the price of the food. £25 for three courses of really rather great food! Something that’s a little confusing though is that they advertise themselves as fine dining. In this respect it’s not fine dining. One (very good) waiter isn’t enough to provide the fine dining experience but I do realise I’d expect to pay three times that At a truly fine dining restaurant.
Honestly I’d definitely go back here, the place is lovely and the food and service is excellent. And the price can not be beaten, we paid £117 for two with a decent bottle of wine and some extra bits too. We’d expect to pay double that for what we were provided with at Con Gusto. Excellent job guys!
Lovely dinner, food delicious as usual, prices seem to be increasing.
First class as ever. The pasta is perfectly cooked and the flavours are excellent. Only a suggestion maybe a couple of other exytra dishes now and again, having been a few times, whilst I love the food they do it would be nice to try something different occasionally but this is NOT a criticism, its fab
First time at con gusto. Been looking forward to going as my wife spoke highly of it. Managed to get a table the day before, so that was great. The place is lovely inside and the staff were polite, positive and not too attentive. Starters were good - wifey had prawns, I had a polenta based dish. Mains came. My wife enjoyed hers. I did too, but wouldn't say it was outstanding. The pasta was a minute away from being al dente - still a bit grainy for my liking, but the sauce was good. As usual with Italian dishes, they were both a bit protein light, so didn't expect that to be any different. Overall a nice place, decent enough food, lovely interior and a great location. Bit pricey for what you get, but it feels intimate - well it did, until a guy plonked himself a the vacant table next to us, whipped out his magic tablet and proceeded to watch MMA right next to me. It was worth a visit, but because of that, I won't be going back.
Intimate setting with enough space to feel comfortable. Reasonably priced food and drinks and very attentive service. Lovely venue for occasions.
Fabulous place. Authentic Italian food made with quality ingredients. Great selection of wines, beer and cocktails to cover all tastes and pockets. Good for casual meals, romantic dinners and special occasions.
Amazing New Year meal thank you - tasty food, generous portions and friendly and welcoming service!
I've eaten here a few times now and the food has been amazing every time. It is a little bit expensive but nice for an occasion. I've also been for their set price/menu pre-theatre sitting when you can have the delicious food for a fraction of the price! Well worth it.
The staff are really accommodating and friendly as well. Definitely recommend!
Superb all round! Great food, excellent ambience & service
An excellent anniversary dinner. Delicious food and friendly service.
Pre-theatre menu fantastic value. Food and service were excellent. Highly recommend
Lovely atmosphere, well presented food with. nice flavour. The pork belly was a little over cooked but my partner had the lamb which was sensational! It’s such a petite restaurant so it’s intimate and nicely decorated which I really like! Perfect for an anniversary dinner or another special occasion. Even better that we live 2 mins away! Highly recommend 😊
Pitched just right IMO - 6-8 dishes per course and a nice variety of dishes which were well presented and used fresh ingredients. Tiny gripe about my starter would be that my burrata was more like 1/4 of a burrata. The seafood pasta main was very flavoursome even if the sauce was a little excessive. A nice bottle of Puglian Primitivo (wine menu was also very good) and decent dessert wine. Came to £60 a head which was fine for London including the wine. Will go again.
Gem of a restaurant in Woolwich. Excellent food, wine and service as always!
We love this little restaurant. On this occasion there were 6 of us and we had the set meal menu for £39 which is great value. Our meal was amazing 10/10.
The set up and location are 10/10, the service again, fantastic - Alcohol - cocktails 🍷 are a tad pricey. See you in a few weeks, already booked to go back!
Food is great but the space is too small and music is too damn loud for dinner time.
Absolutely delicious food
Absolutely phenominal meal, it was brilliant from start to finish! Outstanding service, delicious food for EVERY course and really lovely wine to go with it. Can’t recommend Con Gusto enough!!! A jewel for the Royal Arsenal and perfect for both special occasions and a treat on a Saturday night
Disappointed with the beef carpaccio as it was swimming in tasteless olive oil, the beef ragu however was delicious.
Everytime we go here we always have a good time. Food is so fresh and tasty.
This restaurant is a true gem of the area. The food is always amazing, the service is always impeccable and I would highly recommend this to any in the area. You will not regret the choice.
Truly amazing food (up there with the best London has to offer), great value and great service...but the chairs are a bit oddly small.
One of my favourites
Happy to have celebrated my birthday there. My favourite place in SE London :-)
Always love going to Con Gusto, such an interesting setting and cosy restaurant. Would have given the food a 5/5 if it wasn't for my Ragu that was rather over salted. The remainder of the dishes ordered were very tasty.
The restaurant is charming and the food was very tasty. However, as the venue is full - with all tables occupied - and it there was just one waiter, the service was very time-consuming and the noise level was higher than the normal.
Was our third or fourth visit, food always excellent and very friendly staff. Atmosphere very good as well due to the cosy size of the restaurant and decor also warm and welcoming.
Finally got to eat here, been meaning to for ages. Was much better than expected, food quality amazing and fantastic service. Will definitely visit again soon. Cannot fault anything other than we were un fortunate enough to sit next to some loud and rude people who were extremely noisy, however staff moved us to a different table. Probably best quality food in the area.
Nice food, cosy environment.
We went to Con Gusto to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It wasn’t the first time but we loved every minute of it. The food is always exquisite, the place is cozy and elegant and the service is lovely. We will be going back.
Con Gusto remains one of our favorite restaurants in the world.
It's our first reservation any time we plan a trip to London.
Woolwich is lucky indeed to have such a gem tucked away by the Thames.
Our third visit here and we've never had a bad experience. Everything from the first greeting on arrival to - the ambiance - the meal, and the service was to perfection!
Such a special gem on our doorstep!
Another lovely meal at one of my favourite restaurants
Having ordered the strozzapreti pasta alla marinara, I was disappointed to discover that there were no large prawns in the dish. I was informed that the prawns had been cut up, which meant that you couldn't actually detect them as they were cut so fine upon close inspection. The dish was filled with mussels, which came across as if the cheapest option had been selected. Also, when we were finishing our dinner, rather than inform us that they were closing, our glasses (including water glasses) were removed from our table. When we asked what time they were closing, we were told it was 15 minutes prior, to which end the music promptly stopped creating the feeling of an unwelcome end to the evening.
This was the second time I’ve been here and both times were really nice. Great food, good atmosphere and really attentive staff! Could not fault it!!
Loved it all. 10/10
