Paid a visit Thursday night to Gusto in Roslindale, and liked it so much, we returned last night too!
There is a new bar at the back, not big, about six stools available. They don't have a full bar, but they get quite creative with alternative cocktails.
Started with a fantastic crab cake with greens, lumps of tasty crab, with really fresh greens. For the entree had the vegetarian pasta, with a choice of scallops or chicken. I went with the scallpos, which were juicy and mixed just perfectly with the pasta and vegetables. My sister had lobster ravioli with a cream sauce, and to her delight, it was just right; light tasting, and filled with chunks of lobster.
Adequate wine list, bottled beer.
The ambience is very welcoming, attentive service, and staff are very open to ideas and changes. Friendly neighbourhood feel, the decor is understated elegance.
On Friday night, I had the salmon with fruit salsa with rice. The salmon had a BBQ quality, which was great with the salsa. Light tasting, very fruity, but a great match.
I will be back again next week!
