A NOTE FROM US…

 

Following the latest government announcement, we are now open for outdoor dining in Liverpool, Leeds, Cheadle Hulme & Newcastle. We will be opening in Birmingham on 21st April and Edinburgh on 26th April. We have also opened up indoor reservations from 17th May for all of our restaurants so you can start planning your first meal out and give yourself and loved ones something to look forward to.

 

Obviously reopening our restaurants is subject to the lifting of restrictions but we’ve got everything crossed that we can welcome you back in a couple of months.

 

We’d just like to take this opportunity to thank you for the support you have shown us over the last 12 months – we couldn’t have done it without you.

 

Please take care of yourselves and look after those around you.

 

The end is in sight…

 

Matt Snell, Managing Director, Gusto Italian
