Gusto Italian opens its doors in Nottingham

PREMIUM casual dining group Gusto Italian has opened the doors to its new-look restaurant and bar in Nottingham city centre. The venue, (which opened on the 6th  December) on Upper Parliament Street, is an evolution of the Gusto Italian brand with an immersive pizza experience, open kitchen, and coffee and cannoli bar. 

 The restaurant occupies the former Frankie & Benny’s restaurant on the corner of King Street and Upper Parliament Street and has created over 80 jobs in the city of Nottingham.  


Matt Snell, CEO, said: “We’re thrilled to bring Gusto Italian to the people of Nottingham once again. This is our first opening for over 4 years and we’ve worked incredibly hard behind the scenes to create an immersive experience which will redefine the landscape of casual Italian dining. The open kitchen and pizza experience at the chef’s table will allow our guests to see the passion, skill, and delicious ingredients that go into their dishes.”

 The Gusto Pizza Experience is a new concept, exclusive to Nottingham, and offers a two-hour hands-on experience at the chef’s table for groups of up to 10 people. 

 Matt added: “This venue is something new and exciting, both for the Gusto Italian brand and for the Nottingham dining scene. We can’t wait to see what our guests are going to think.” 

 The venue is open every day from 10am serving coffee and cannoli with their à la carte menu available from noon. Gusto Italian also serves brunch and bottomless brunch from Friday to Sunday 10am – 2pm.
