    A neighborhood charm! Chef Daniel was so kind and he let us eat in although … More they only do take out during lunch. We had calamari, Cesar salad and creamy pasta - so fresh and yummy. He prepared the dressing from scratch and it tasted so good. The pasta dish was filled with mushrooms, ham and onions. The price is very reasonable. Will definitely come back again!
  • Avatar Ailin Opazo ★★★★★ in the last week
    Such an amazing place. Calm environment, great food and good prices. We really … More enjoyed the meal and the service was great!
  • Avatar Carlos Fernando Vaca ★★★★ in the last week
    The service was great. I ordered Alfredo and it was good, it felt fresh and … More homemade, but I'm still trying to find the best Alfredo in the Chicago area.
  • Avatar Michelle Brady ★★★★★ 3 weeks ago
    Wonderful Italian dinner!! I’ve been searching for a new place as my favorite … More Italian place went out of business and I have found it. Pasta perfectly al dente, nice staff, and BYOB. Have already been back once and will be back many more times!!

    Very nice spot, not too pricey, unpretentious. Delivery was pretty good too. … More Try the homemade fettuccine, so good.

    Wonderful food, cute restaurant, kind staff- ordered it twice with family over, … More and everyone was duly satisfied.
  • Avatar Amber ★★★☆☆ 5 months ago
    All of the food had red bell peppers in it, making the entire order inedible. … More Nothing on the menu says there are bell peppers in anything. Had to throw it all straight in the trash. Also almost no sauce on the pasta. Very disappointed.
  • Avatar Nakohma Carpenter ★★★★★ 5 months ago
    They accidentally gave me the wrong sandwich. I wanted the meatball but got … More the Italian sausage. Luckily it was a good mistake.
  • Avatar Megan Wolski ★★★★★ 4 months ago
    Run! Dont walk to Pasta Al Gusto.
    The food was great. We had the fried calamari
    … More for an app, and it was perfectly cooked...not rubbery at all. The entrees were perfect, but the desserts stole the show. Get the cannolis and cheesecake. You wont regret it.
    Lastly, they are BYOB...who doesnt love that? 🙂
  • Avatar Amanda Betancourt-Szymanowska ★★☆☆☆ 5 months ago
    I mean the food wasn’t terrible but it wasn’t great. It did not justify how … More much we paid for it. The Gorgonzola cream sauce tasted nothing of Gorgonzola. No funk. And the gnocchi was too chewy. Like it was store bought.The ravioli with vodka cream sauce had too little sauce . And the pana cotta? That’s not a vodka strawberry sauce in it. They literally just poured vodka on top. Don’t order this for delivery. Not worth the money we paid.
  • Avatar Elizabeth Christian ★★★★★ 8 months ago
    Found this during the pandemic while trying to support some local places. I've … More tried both the pasta and sandwiches with fries which were both great and highly recommend them.
    Staff was also always nice and quick to get your order ready. Everyone was wearing their mask correctly and they seemed to be following all COVID regulations to keep customers safe.

  • Avatar Mykala Matheny ★★★★★ a year ago
    The owner and workers here were so kind and helpful to me. I am an Uber Eats … More driver that ran into an unexpected car issue after picking up an order here. It left me stranded for about a half hour, and the restaurant did everything in their power to help me out. They really made a wonderful impression on me, and I would love to come back to eat here anytime.
  • Avatar Tyler Yates ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    Terrific food, great staff, consistent service. My wife and I love this place … More for dining in or take out.
  • Avatar K B ★★★★★ 11 months ago

  • Avatar Greg Spear ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    When it comes down to it, over my 5 years in Lakeview, my GrubHub account doesn't … More lie. This is by far my most ordered from restaurant bc it is fast and delicious. Lasagna de la casa, rigatoni alla grassa, portabello rapini, insalta al gusto (don't be fooled by the salad title this is so delicious) are the staples.
  • Avatar Poonam Arora ★★★★★ a year ago
    Was looking for a great Italian restaurant in Lakeview and happened to try pasta … More Al gusto. Wanted to celebrate a special occasion at home during the stay at home pandemic phase and the food from this restaurant just made it so special. The gnocchi in Al gusto sauce, the shell pasta in Alfredo sauce, spinach salad all was so delicious. Can't wait to eat at the restaurant when things open up again.
  • Avatar Kate Gallagher ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Waitress was super nice very attentive. Ordered a couple pasta dishes portions … More were big taste phenomenal! The cheesy bread was so cheesy and delicious. Meatballs are so good as well. Would recommend this place for anyone looking for awesome pasta! Will definitely be back.
  • Avatar JeJe Beauty ★★★★★ 11 months ago

  • Avatar Devren Austin ★★★★★ a year ago
    Delicious! Can't wait to go back 🙂 the waiter recommended the rotini al … More gusto and farfalle aurora, and neither failed to please. Also, the best tomato soup I've had.
  • Avatar Mark Penney ★★★★★ a year ago
    The food is great, the chef and the staff are very nice, and the prices are … More reasonable. This is our new go-to Italian place.
  • Avatar Yesenia Feliciano ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    Great pasta, I love garlic
  • Avatar D M ★★★★ 2 years ago
    When you go here remember you can't eat the atmosphere! Nothing fancy … More but good Italian at very reasonable prices. Hard to find in trendy Southport corridor.
  • Avatar Dani Fehr ★★★★★ 8 months ago
    Love this place. Great atmosphere, delicious food, wonderful staff. We enjoy … More this for a family outing, a date, or a summer evening on the patio. Pasta Al Gusto is a gem.
  • Avatar Pink Lemon ★★★★★ a year ago
    I love it here! They have the best fettuccini Alfredo! I love ordering it with … More chicken! The food is always pleasing and is comforting. The prices were just like the ones at Olive Garden but the food was much better. Much appetizing! I will gladly come back! And recommend you do so! I’m picky with food so me actually enjoying it was surprising to me, but I love me some pasta! There’s also a tiny like museum I enjoy watching while going here, when you go to the bathroom you can see old pictures they used to put on the wall and a door they used to use and some old lettering sign. That says (states) “Pasta Al Gusto”. I might admit I don’t like the new photos but I love everything else otherwise 🙂
  • Avatar Noelle Sercer ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Absolutely delicious food. Friendly people. Ordered for pickup roundabouts close … More and was not disappointed with my pasta nor my cranberry goat cheese salad. The raspberry vinaigrette was so tasty I poured the entire container into the bowl! I will definitely be dining here again and this time I’ll come in and sit down ☺️👌
  • Avatar ellen maloney ★★★★ 2 years ago
    Had a good meal here with friends. Service is ok.Funnily, we all agreed that … More we'd walked by it a million times and never saw it. I'd definitely go back. Make a reservation, it's tiny and busy. Oh! It's byob too so come packing.
  • Avatar Charles Kay ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Very good Italian restaurant. Been here 6 or 7 times. Never disappointed. Prices … More are reasonable. And it's BYOB which I prefer. Simple atmosphere and Simply good food 👌.

  • Avatar aubrey iwanicki ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    The food was excellent as was the service. The lobster mac and cheese and the … More cannoli were to die for. I would highly recommend this place.
  • Avatar alexandria brown ★★★★ 2 years ago
    I ordered the Gnocchi with Gorgonzola cream sauce. It was decent, but was a … More bit too salty for my liking.
  • Avatar Brian Christ ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    This is a great neighborhood pasta place for a simple but delicious italian … More meal. The super casual atmosphere will make you feel at home.This place is right between the Mercury Theater and the Music Box Theater, so it's a great place for a quick bite before a movie or a show. But, don't expect anything fancy!

  • Avatar Cynthia Valtierrez ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    I used to live right around the corner. Now I live on the south side...but I … More still go to pasta gusto. Hands down, some of the best pasta in Chicago. The lobster mac is to die for! And the portabella mushrooms are my favorite thing on the menu.
  • Avatar Joanne Machain ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    We absolutely love this place. In fact, I’m getting ready to go there now. … More For the ones who are leaving a bad review, good, that leaves more seats open.
  • Avatar Gayathri Parthasarathy Nallore ★★★★ 3 years ago
    Food was great. Good options for veg, gluten free and meat. Taste was good. … More But service was not good. I am giving a 4/5 just for the bad service. If it was just food, ambience and cost, I would give 5/5

  • Avatar Kirsten Gustafson ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Absolutely love the charm of Pasta al Gusto. Our waitress was amazing and the … More pasta options were delicious as usual. Loved the gnocchi with vodka cream sauce and highly recommend the Pomodoro e Caprino for an appetizer. You can't go wrong with goat cheese, a rich tomato sauce and French bread! The lunch special and dinner entrees are affordable and the portions are perfect.
  • Avatar Troy LaRaviere ★★★★★ 7 years ago
    I've worked down the street from this place for awhile, but I ordered for … More the first time yesterday. I had the vegetarian salad (although I am not a vegetarian). The salad was great--colorful and delicious. The portion was satisfying and the price was very reasonable. I liked it so much that I'm having it again today.
  • Avatar The Lopez Family ★★★★ 2 years ago
    I ordered thru grubhub for delivery. I ordered the"Spaghetti Pesto e Pollo". … More So the order took very long to arrive, the food was a bit cold and the pasta was stuck together.....but with that being said, the pasta had a very good taste,it didnt have aton of oil like other places,it came with enough chicken pieces and vegetables and enough sauce that it was very delicious.. maybe next time I'll just dine in and really enjoy the meal directly from the stove.
  • Avatar Daniella Antilla-Porter ★★★★★ 5 years ago
    The food here is amazing. I've now had about 4 or 5 different dishes and … More I honestly am not sure how to pick a favorite. If I had to choose I'd say that the Al Gusto sauce is my favorite but man, they are all so delicious. And the price is so low for how much you get and the quality of it all.
  • Avatar Angela Lan ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    best pasta in town! Highly recommended! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  • Avatar Joe Gregorio ★★★★ 3 years ago
    BYOB is a plus. Good service and relatively quick. Decent price for what you … More get. The linguine pesto is solid
  • Avatar Gabriela Garay ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    This was our first time here; we were looking for an affordable BYOB pasta spot. … More This place was amazing! We ordered a lentil soup special, garlic cheesy bread, raviolo de carne and spagetti with meat balls. Everything was delicious and well seasoned with lots of flavor. The meats were cooked well and not too dry. And to top it all off, the service was attentive and super friendly. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu offerings and shared really great suggestions. 10/10 would recommend to a friend and will return soon!
  • Avatar Eric Schrader ★★★★ 3 years ago
    nice pasta selection. Nothing overly fancy but good home cooked feel.
  • Avatar Jonathan Douglas ★★★★ 5 years ago
    Surprisingly good, homemade Italian eats, tucked away in a small space on Southport. … More There are a lot of options to try, although the staff tend to lean towards many of the same dishes whenever we ask for recommendations. This is not a bad thing, they make generous portions of solid comfort dishes at very reasonable prices. The restaurant itself is a bit sparse, so we tend to eat on the patio, or get take-out.
  • Avatar Nicholas Johnson ★★★★★ 5 years ago
    Great food at a great price. Bruschetta was under $5 and delicious!Both entrees … More had great sauces and was cooked perfectly. Big portions and fast service.

  • Avatar Josh Cooper ★★☆☆☆ 7 years ago
    I liked these guys for a long time. We would always order them for lunch at … More work. They decided to change their lunch special menu and remove several of our favorites but refused to change their menu on their website. They also frequently would mess up basic parts of delivery orders (like not including salad dressing with a salad or forks with pasta). I put up with it for a long time but today was just too much. I'm done with this place.
  • Avatar Rachel P ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    BYOB and food is affordable and delicious. If you want a good meal without breaking … More the bank, this is definitely the place to go!

  • Avatar Ryan A-P ★★★★★ 5 years ago
    We were going out for a group dinner and were planning on trying The Butcher's … More Tap, but it was so loud in there I could barely hear myself think. We walked up and down the Southport corridor but everything was packed to the gills on a Wednesday evening at 6:30. So then we passed Pasta al Gusto, which was almost completely empty and had suspiciously reasonable prices. I was skeptical but we were at the end of our ropes looking for a place to just sit down and eat.It's a small space inside and there's nothing special in the decor, but it's clean and there's a nice, cozy theme. We ordered a caesar salad and cheese bread for appetizers, which were both good.For the main meal, I got the linguine pesto. I'm a complete layman when it comes to stuff like this so I didn't really know what to expect, but it was totally delicious. The noodles were cooked to just the right texture (apparently in white wine?) and the pesto sauce had the consistency of a really good alfredo, but was...well, pesto. It was delicious, and I sampled some gnocchi, lasagna, and some other stuff I can't name that was all really, shockingly good.We didn't get dessert, but our waitress (who was great also, by the way--we kept asking obnoxious questions about the dishes that she was happy and able to answer) claimed they were all made from scratch and made a compelling case for the tiramisu that I'm excited to go back and try.I tend to only write these reviews for restaurants that I really enjoyed but that I'm worried don't get enough attention. Pasta al Gusto definitely fits that bill. It's very inconspicuous among the boom and dazzle of the other restaurants along Southport, but it's also very worth the visit.

  • Avatar Maureen Koertgen ★★★★ 8 years ago
    We ordered Pasta Al Gusto for a graduation party. The Rotini al Gusto, Penne … More Bolgnese and the Spaghetti Pomodoro were all amazing! We also ordered several pans of Panini sandwiches to pull out later in the evening and they were delicious! Our guests were raving about the food. Thanks!
