Gusto Cucina Italiana Appetizers
Start with a traditional Italian crostini! Crostini bread, fresh mozzarella, tomato, and roasted red pepper are finished with a Balsamic glaze. Choose the mozzarella frita, homemade fried mozzarella with marinara dipping sauce, or taste the sea with sauteed mussels in a light plum tomato sauce. You can also choose a caprese salad full of fresh mozzarella, tomato, basil, Balsamic glaze, and oil.
An Italian restaurant by the sea is bound to have plenty of seafood dishes. Shrimp Scampi and Parmigiano join linguini pescatore – sauteed shrimp, calamari, scallops, clams, and mussels in a white wine red sauce with a touch of spice over linguini.
Taste traditional Italian chicken dishes like chicken parmigiano and chicken marsala or try something new with chicken and shrimp la rosa, a bed of angel hair pasta hosts sauteed chicken breast accompanied by shrimp, garlic, spinach, and tomatoes in a white wine sauce, and melted mozzarella cheese.
Choose an Italian favorite like cheese ravioli, or pappardelle alla bolognese, or go for something new like tortellacci gusto, a stuffed tortellacci mixture, veal, beef, grana padano cheese, tomato cream sauce, ham, ground beef, and onion.
Vegetarians have choices, too! Enjoy traditional eggplant Parmigiano and gypsy capellini: mushrooms, broccoli, light tomato sauce, roasted red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, and artichoke hearts over angel hair. Ask about making one of their other dishes vegetarian friendly!

Pork Milanese features breaded pork, arugula, tomato, Parmesan shavings, and roasted potato in lemon butter sauce, while veal picata boasts a tender selection of veal accompanied by fresh mushrooms, capers, and roasted potatoes in a lemon butter sauce.
