Real Italian Gusto ITALIAN RESTAURANT

We are Francesca and Matteo Ronzio from Italy, we fell in love with Boston after a trip to New England a few years ago. Here at Real Italian Gusto we love to expose patrons to authentic Italian food and dining customs. It will be just like coming to Italy if you enter our shop, which is exactly our goal. Real Italian Gusto is a great place to enjoy traditional Italian dishes that feature both local ingredients and Italian import but it is also a place to find imported Italian goods, such as olive oils, sauces, pasta. We have imported a fifth generation pizza chef from Naples, Ciro Langella, and an oven from Florence to add to the authenticity.

Beautiful restaurant with an amazing staff. The tiramisu is out of this world. I can’t wait to go back there again

Some of the best and most authentic Italian food I have had in the area, without the high prices of the North End. It was delicious and the restaurant itself is so cute!

Mark, August 5, 2019

Great place - terrific food, fast & friendly service and a pleasant, casual atmosphere.

Don, July 30, 2019

You could tell the pasta was made on site. The portions were bigger than I've come to expect in restaurants-a pleasant surprise.

Kathleen, July 26, 2019

The ingredients used to cook our meal wear fresh and delicious, but the center of the pizza was overloaded and a bit soggy. This can be fixed by making sure that the plates are slightly warm so that condensation does not form under the pizza

Alicia, July 21, 2019

Great service! Food was good, too, but doesn't stand out from other Italian restaurants. I would go back since it is priced and portioned well. It's also close to home and I never knew how much space was inside since the front of the building is a little deceiving. I always thought it was smaller, so never went it.

Amanda, July 18, 2019

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We had a fried finger food appetizer and a mushroom and prosciutto pizza. They use fresh ingredients and the red sauce was delicious.

Karen, July 12, 2019

Penelope was a wonderful server and the food was great. Thank you!

Elisabeth, July 10, 2019

Delicious food, wonderful service, along with fresh, bright, and modern ambience. Would definitely go back! We had a seat by the window overlooking the river, a lovely sight!

Albert, May 7, 2019

Delicious food, beautiful setting, central location.

I, April 25, 2019

The restaurant was very clean and nice. We enjoyed the pizza! The jazz band was very good, but slightly loud. I would come back to eat here again!

Rachel, April 24, 2019

The pizza was delicious and prepared very quickly. I enjoyed the decor and ambience, and the service was pleasant and professional.

James, April 23, 2019

They only do lunch on Saturdays now. for my lunch, I had the PAPPARDELLE ALLA BOLOGNESE ($19.50). "Classic Bolognese sauce". The pasta is made in house and was nicely cooked but unsalted. The sauce was very good and thick enough to stick to the pasta. It was a very pleasant dish, but it needed salt and pepper.

Peter, April 6, 2019

Real Italian Gusto has fantastic service, fantastic pizza, and honestly the best creme brulee I've ever eaten.

Muhammed, April 3, 2019

The food at Real Italian Gusto was a unique twist from the traditional, and amazingly delicious. Clean, quiet, cozy-chic atmosphere with tables set at the windows overlooking the river. Highly recommended for a date night.

Nicole, March 31, 2019

Very nice atmosphere but I wasn’t very impressed with the food - standard Italian.

Sylvia, March 28, 2019

We shared two appetizers, arrancini and artichoke wrapped with prosciutto. These were great. We shared shrimp risotto which was at best ok.

Mark, March 25, 2019

Great food!

Erika, March 23, 2019

Good food and good atmosphere, would recommend for a date. Mushroom pasta is highly recommended.

Amazing Italian food. Meatball starter was a pleasant surprise!

Tealim, February 24, 2019

Service was excellent. Food delicious and dining room has a nice ambience so was a great night out and will definitely be back.

Robyn, February 23, 2019

As a first generation Italian American I was a little skeptical of this place cuz the name is corny but it's actually the real deal! The wait staff was really prompt and courteous, I adored the wine I got as well as the Trentina Insalte and pizza (I think Puglia?). All of the food was super fresh and tasty! My only qualm would be that the prices are a little steep, especially to be so up in Medford. Not sure I'd go again without a coupon, but I totally would if they were in Camberville/Boston.

Victoria, February 22, 2019

Excellent food and excellent service. You can tell that the owners put everything they have into running their establishment!

Paul, February 20, 2019

Food was awesome, especially the gnocchi. Service was great. Truly one of the best Italian restaurants in Boston! Can’t wait to go back!

Tishi, February 19, 2019

Good service

Ana, February 10, 2019

The food was delicious. The service was wonderful. Our waitress was funny, polite and welcoming. Hearing some of the employees interact with customers in Italian really gave the restaurant an authentic feel
