Gran Gusto atmosphere?
Does anyone know what the atmosphere is like at Gran Gusto on a Saturday night? I have reservations for tomorrow at 6:30 with parents who would generally prefer semi-quiet restaurants and I'm starting to second guess this decision.
The room has a lot of tile (on the floors, etc.) so sound tends to bounce - but it is not a loud place in terms of patrons - so I think you should be fine. There is also a smaller room that might be quieter.
The restaurant will not be full until 7-7:30pm. And IME, at least half the patrons are over the retirement age, so there's not much rowdiness. I haven't even seen the tables of young Italians get loud in there.
The host is super-gracious and would do everything to make your parents comfortable.
Funny, I thought about starting our post on Gran Gusto with, "please, try the food before you walk out because of the decor." The food was divine, the decor needs an HG TV makeover.
There are some photos here. I would say GO and try the Piadina if it is available in the evening. It is wonderful and I don't understand why we don't have at least half of the pizza places serving it.
