🍷 Celebrate National Wine Day with us today! We recommend a bottle of Brunello 🍷

Made with 100% Sangiovese grapes, Brunello is a very elegant and bold representation of this grape and is a great example of terroir. The Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona estate is located on the southeast slope of the municipality of Montalcino, close to the medieval village of Castelnuovo dell’Abate and to the famous Romanesque Abbey of Sant’Antimo, which dates back to the 11th century.

"Aromas of red berry, camphor, and tobacco meld with rose in this fragrant, full-bodied red. The smooth palate is concentrated yet elegant, featuring raspberry jam, cherry marinated in spirits, licorice, and coffee bean alongside a backbone of firm, velvety tannins." ~ KERIN O’KEEFE, Wine Spectator

The Brunello pairs perfectly with our 44 Farms Beef Braised Short Rib dish, served with cacio e pepe risotto, red wine jus, gremolata, pistachio.

We offer competitive pay, shift meals, and a positive team working environment. We are focused on providing a quality experience for our guests and take our work seriously.

Now in it's 9th year, Gusto has proven to be a staple of the Rosedale neighborhood and Austin at large. We regularly cater events all over town for groups such as Austin Chamber Music, Culturati, the LBJ Presidential Library, host wine and chef tasting dinners here at the restaurant, and run chalkboard specials inspired by the season.

If you are a skilled, hard working, customer service oriented person who is passionate about good food and likes the idea of working for a locally owned restaurant under an experienced chef, then please apply!

THE BEAT GOES ON! Spring is in the air in central Texas and we are proud to introduce our new featured cocktail of the season. Made with Sweet Beat Vodka, "The Beat Goes On" is a refreshing concoction including St. Germain, Yellow Chartreuse, Campari, Lemon, Cucumber & Basil, and topped off with a splash of soda water. AND, both Gusto Italian Kitchen + Wine Bar and Sweet Beat Vodka will be donating $2 EACH from every cocktail sold to Austin Chamber Music Center!

03/17/2021

SPRING IS IN THE AIR! Bright, fresh, and dare I say, good for you? Anyone who tells you Italian food "isn't healthy" hasn't discovered the Italy we know and love. Trattoria style Italian cooking is all about sourcing quality ingredients and preparing them with love, care, and a bit of restraint to not make dishes overly fussy. Take our new salmon principale dish for example ... premium Scottish salmon seared to perfection over charred broccolini with toasted almonds, local herb salad, and a blood orange vinaigrette. BUON APPETITO! #goodfoodgusto #eatlikeanitalian #springisintheair

Our Story

Founded in 2012, Gusto Italian Kitchen + Wine Bar is located in the Rosedale area of midtown Austin. The neighborhood trattoria captures the warm, comforting, every-day flavors of Italian cuisine in its diverse menu. Dishes range from traditional Italian antipasti to hand-tossed pizzas, salads, fresh pasta, seasonal entrees, and scratch desserts made in-house.

A clean, inviting design by architect Robert Smith incorporates rich colors & fabrics and a large mirrored wall in the style of aperitivo bars found throughout the major cities of northern Italy (Venice, Milan, Turin). Specially commissioned pop art adorns the walls along with an angelic mural on the ceiling by local artist Federico Archuleta. At the center - a long, lively bar featuring boutique family owned & estate-grown wines from Italy and around the world, craft cocktails, beers on draught, and fair-trade Italian roast espresso drinks. Outside on the expansive patio guests can dine al fresco in the shade at a table or lounge at one of the couch sectionals for happy hour.

Whether it’s a casual weeknight meal or a leisurely celebration – whatever the occasion – the team at Gusto invites all to drink, to taste, and to enjoy!
