Our Story

Gusto (pronounced Goo-sto) means tasty in Italian. Located in Toronto’s Corktown neighbourhood, Gusto 501 brings together the innovation of sister restaurant Gusto 101 and the soulful hospitality of Janet Zuccarini’s first restaurant, Trattoria Nervosa. Since opening our doors in 2020, Gusto 501 has been serving fresh takes on Italian fare in Toronto’s east end. Designed by award-winning architecture firm PARTISANS, Gusto 501’s space is punctuated by glowing terracotta walls and an oversized “garage door” façade that opens up to reveal a multi-level dining theatre. 

Every level of Gusto 501 unfolds into a unique experience. Enjoy soulful Italian cooking in our Trattoria - fresh pasta and pizzas cooked to order in a wood-fired oven. In the evening make your way up to Attico - our nod to the Italian spuntini bar - for elevated cocktails and sharing plates. Whatever you're craving, there's always a seat at the table for you - our famiglia.
