    A good choice if you like eclectic pizza with different toppings using fresh ingredients. I'm something of a pizza snob, as oxymoronic as that may sound, and have made a point of trying pizza all over the country. If you like the thin crispy style crust with the toppings as the focal point, you will like Gusto's. If you are a big fan of NY style, neapolitan style, Chicago deep dish, or brick oven, then this will probably not be high up on your list. Had both the Mona Lisa and Spartacus and enjoyed them, but I thought the Spartacus was too salty and the Mona Lisa was overpowered by the black olives. The mozzarella was of medium quality. Toppings are what make a pizza good, but the crust is what makes a pizza great, something which most pizzerias in Iowa haven't quite grasped.

    Ventured here on a Saturday for lunch. There were plenty of people there as just two tables were open and some seats at the bar. This is an order at the counter, get your drinks, forks, etc and sit down with a number. Their menu is posted behind the counter but you can also get a paper one and sit and ponder for a bit. The menu has unique pizza topping options that include Thai, Mexican, Philly, Buffalo and the more Traditional too. The pizzas are either 10 or 14 inches. The 10" ranges anywhere between $9-$12 while the 14" are between $16-$19. There are also salads and sandwiches. I had been craving some Mexican food so I ordered the El Mariachi. My husband ordered the Thai Kwon Dough. We waited what I would say is a typical wait time for the pizzas. They were both really colorful and had lots of toppings. The crust is on the crispy, thinner side of things. The Thai Kwon Dough was my favorite out of the two. Not that the El Mariachi wasn't good, it was, just the Thai Kwon Dough had better flavor. The only reason for the 4, not 5 stars is that I like a doughier crust. This one was simply too crispy for my liking. If we are in the area again, we would possibly stop in.

    Went to gusto for the 2nd time and i think i have a handle on this spot. I will start with the good. The crust is very good, not awesome but still really crispy and thin and not greasy. 2Nd i like the layout and ordering when you walk in and getting the bill handled before you eat. That way you leave when ready. Now on to the not so positive parts. The cheese was nothing special. Reminded me of pizza huts cheese. Lastly the top of the pizza wasnt cooked long enough. You can sometimes slide by with mediocre cheese if you cook it long enough. Overall i give gusto 3 stars.

    This is one of the restaurants I always make a stop at when I'm in the Des Moines area. Offers an amazing assortment of pizzas, appetizers and salads. The atmosphere of the establishment is amazing and makes for a great place to catch up with friends or watch a game on the various televisions mounted on the walls. I would recommend this place to any pizza lover.

    Great thin-crust pizza. Happy hour from 2-4PM (on weekdays?) means half off the signature pizzas! The Stallion (red sauce, mozzarella, Italian meatballs, spicy capicola ham, yellow onions, green peppers, green olive relish, garlic and red pepper flake): Impressive presentation. Verrry meaty and filling, though a bit too salty. I think it was because the pizza was buried in chopped olives, which is great if you love the stuff. I definitely enjoyed the meatball pieces!

  • Suzan H.

    Everyone I talk to says they love this place but I just don't get it. The pizza is good as are the salads but they aren't THAT good. Staff is friendly and the restaurant is clean but for the price I would rather go elsewhere. Parking is terrible at this location unless you go at an off time.

    If you are a pizza lover like I am, then this is a must try experience for you. First off, awesome lunch special! 7 inch signature pie, choice of side and a soda for $7.95?!?! This is crazy for such great food. The pie selection is spectacular with an array of fresh ingredients. On our recent trip we took advantage of said special. My husband had the Stallion which I sampled and loved the olive relish on it. The twangy, salty flavors were a welcome addition to the other ingredients. I had the buffalo chicken, the flavor combo was perfection. Everything melded so well and the fresh roma tomatoes was a refreshingly bite of juiciness. My husband commented on how fresh his salad greens were and I enjoyed the panzenella salad. So many great options to choose from. Plus the staff is always friendly and helpful. Bravo Gustos!

    Gusto really does not disappoint! When weather permits, take advantage of their outdoor seating. Also, do not neglect the salads on the menu. I shared a phenomenal italian cobb, which had kalamata olives, tomato, chicken, artichokes, shaved onions, and a wonderfully light vinaigrette. The Francesco pizza is a must if you love a white sauce. It's full of mushrooms, spinach, garlic, artichokes and plenty of cheese. Plus, if you miss your momma's homemade baked goods, they sell scotcharoo & carmelitas by the cash register. REALLY darn good.

    They have a great selection of specialty pizza - even vegan/vegetarian options! They have an assortment of beer and wine. Everything tastes fresh and the ambiance is comfortable. We also love their patio - it's perfect for sitting and chatting on a warm summer evening. This place will not disappoint :)

    Tasty pizza made to order, quick and friendly service for a good price. The thing I like most about Gusto's is the *variety* of pizzas available. They are creative and fresh. Good vegetarian options too!

    Simply put, the most tasteful and appetizing pizza we have ever tasted. We are huge fans of the "Vincent Van Goat". Staff and service are excellent. Very clean and well kept restaurant.

    I stopped in for lunch with the family to try this place and was not disappointed. We got there just after 1 so there were not many patrons. The restaurant is very clean and the decor was nice. The person taking the orders was nice and didn't rush us to order so we had a chance to look over the menu. We ordered the Duke and we all loved it. The crust is a thin crust and was awesome. I loved the brisket and BBQ sauce, not to sweet. I will definitely be back to try some of the other pizzas. The waiter did an excellent job, not bothersome, but seamed to know the right time to ask if everything was good and when to refill drinks. Great job and keep up the great service.

    I just moved back after a decade away and Gusto has been recommended to me multiple times. First off the G sauce logo is stellar (I'm a graphic designer). I recently dined at this Ingersoll location. First impressions: Cool space albeit the hard surfaces can make it loud. Cool movie themed artwork. ORDERED: 14" Fromage-a-Trois and The Scampi pizzas. TASTED: If you read my reviews you'll know I'm a foodie who's brutally honest. The Fromage-a-Trois, I had to explain the pun to my mom (awwwkward), is a great pizza but I feel they almost put too much cheese on it. It over powers the red sauce, which is delicious. The garlic also is a bit too strong. It's a three cheese pizza, let the mozzarella, provolone and romano harmonize and taste these great cheeses. Incredible crust. The Scampi was outstanding. The garlic butter, shrimp, tomato, capers, fresh basil, mozzarella and asiago really are a great combination. It really is like the pasta dish in pizza form. Generous amount of shrimp. The capers add a nice briny saltiness to balance every bite. NIT PICKS: Two large pizzas and three napkins. Pizza is messy. People are messy. Napkins are cheap. I noticed the employees seem to take shifts going outside to smoke or whatever they do outside. Kind of unprofessional. TIP: After eating salty pizza there's a froyo place Orange Leaf right next door. Was the perfect dessert. CHANCE OF RETURN: 9/10

    We ordered the Deburgo ($12/$19) and a side of their garlic breadsticks ($4) to go. The Deburgo is a pizza with garlic - herb cream sauce, sliced sirloin, mozzarella, smoked Gouda, cremini mushrooms, lemon-herb viniagrette, romano, and fresh basil. This pizza is perfect for anyone who likes white pizzas. There wasn't much sirloin on it, but there was plenty of mushrooms and cheese. The sirloin on the pizza was tender and not chewy at all. As for the garlic breadsticks, the garlic is pretty strong (I personally like the strong garlic taste but I can see how others may not). If you're on a date, maybe you should stray from anything served with garlic here ;) the breadsticks also come with a red marinara sauce for dipping. Overall i was very pleased with Gusto's!

    Had the saltimbocca pizza......all I can say is wow!! It was fantastic and the whole group was impressed with it. I even purchased some to take home. The restaurant was a bit loud with music and lots of televisions but you couldn't hear them over the music. It was a fun place

  • Bill L.

    I decided to try this place after hearing good things about it and driving by it everyday. The interior is very nicely decorated, a modern sleek look. The features here are their freshly made pizzas. You order at the counter and take a seat anywhere in this modern seating area. The wait for the food is not long, but I recommend getting appetizers because they taste great. Their special pizza select is extensive but not overwhelming by any means. I personally did enjoy the pizza, but I have had better specialty pizzas at other locations. I would without a doubt come back here to try their other pizzas to see how they taste. The staff ate friendly and accommodating. It gets busy here , but you never feel this place is overwhelming. Parking was a bit frustrating, but we managed to work it out.

  • Andrew D.

    Great Za. In my opinion the dining in exsperience is a little flat. It's just very spacious and sterile. Don't let that fool you about the love they put into their unique pizza. It's all very tasty. Not traditional specialtys, thought they do have a few. The Duke is the best with a side of cheese bread. Take out more than I dine in. Order 15 minutes before I leave work downtown and pick it up hot and ready. Enjoy a beer If your early.

    Never have I ever had a bad meal here. This is our go-to for taking friends and family that visit the area. Being vegan my pizza place list is small and Gusto is definitely at the top of the list. The staff is always so helpful, even in a rush. I usually get the Mona Lisa veganized ( make sure to switch to the balsamic reduction if vegan) but I've tried the make your own option many a-time as well and have never gone wrong. Huge list of options and they even have a gluten free crust that's AMAZING! And the Mon-Fri 2-4p 1/2 off pizza happy hour is divine. If you're visiting DSM this is the place to go for pizza.

  • Patrick T.

    Gusto is great! I love the vegan pizza options they have, I love the patio for outdoor sitting, I love that you can buy huge beers, I love the local art they have displayed inside! Only thing I'm not that into is the counter service! I kinda like having a waiter/waitress.. Cause I never know quite what to tip with counter service! Yes they are still bringing the food out and cleaning up so I leave a good 15-20% but when I'm with friends I see them leave hardly anything because it's counter service! Oh well. This place is great and I love that they have pizza options for the vegan!

  • David M.

    Great pizza - very high quality and tasty, but just a little pricy for the quantity. The topping combos suggested on the menu are all really creative and blend well together for some well thought out flavors. The appetizers and desserts are also great. My favorite - the Saltimbocca

    I just can't find a complaint about this place. Following my surgery my wife brought me home a Pancho Villa--amazing blend of flavored without anything being overbearing. Also tried the Mona Lisa and the Saltimbocca-just all very well done! Great please. Good atmosphere and a nice staff.

    At the moment, this is my favorite pizza place in the Des Moines area. The food is all realllllly good. Whether you order something simple or one of their original pizza creations, you will leave Gusto's with a full stomach and satisfied tastebuds.

  • Anji H.

    Started looking at their menu on Yelp while looking for a thin crust pizza, & I wanted to order one of everything! We ended up calling in a pick-up order for 3 pizzas: Thai Kwon Dough, Spartacus, & De Burgo. They were all delicious! I love fun & different kinds of pizza, as well as a good crispy thin crust, so we will definitely be going back to try more of their creative food!

  • Isaac T.

    One of my favorite pizza places in Des Moines. Atmosphere is casual, but more on the trendy side. Staff is friendly and helpful, especially when I first came. The pizza is excellent, sometimes the edges get a bit burnt though. Overall, it is an exceptional pizzeria that you should definitely check out if you're in the neighborhood!

  • Mark R.

    I had the Hawaiiowan pizza. It was excellent! Spiced pork, mango, onion, pineapple flavors. Fair selection of quality beer (in bottles) and wine. Staff was friendly and courteous. Oh, and right next door to Orange Leaf...a definite plus.

    Editing this review to 5 stars after going to other places and wishing I had just went where I knew I'd get amazing pizza at Gustos. They just can't be beat! The pizzas aren't coated in grease and the variety of choices is the best. Goat cheese?! C'mon, almost no where has that as a topping and it's on more than one pizza standard! I always mean to try the sandwiches and salads, but the pizza is too good to pass up! The bacon vinaigrette dressing is stellar too, in case you were wondering.

    (5)
  • J D.

    Awesome thin-crust pizza with unique toppings and gluten-free options for those that are into that sort of thing. :) Like other reviewers have stated, the service here is "meh"...after we ordered and the clerk swiped our card, we decided we wanted to add an order of cheese bread. The younger gal that helped us there today rolled her eyes at that request--that's not good customer service if you ask me. Also, all of the staff here seemed rushed and didn't seem overly happy.

  • Brooke P.

    Good pizza but way overpriced. The lunch slices are $4 and small, and to be honest not even that great. I do like the pizza with figs on it but not my favorite pizza place in town.

    (3)
  • Dillon T.

    I thought the pizza was great! They had a wide variety of premium pizzas. We ended up getting three small pizzas for four people and splitting them all. It was more than enough food and we even had a few left over pieces. The reason I gave it four starts is that I thought the services seems kinda off. When you eat a premium pizza place I don't want to walk to the counter to place my order and get drink refills. Overall great place that could be improved if they changed there service model and stepped up their bar.

  • Mark G.

    Loved the pizza here, they have some fun names to their pizza. Every bite has a lot of flavor, they do a great job of making sure everything fits well, some places one part of the pizza stands out from the other, not here they are pizza pros. This is one good pizza shop def stop by and try this pie.

  • Sarah C.

    A friend and I tried this place for the first time recently. We had a Mona Lisa and the #24 and thoroughly enjoyed both! Great crust and just the right amount of toppings so as to be filling but not heavy. They offer a lot of unique topping combinations that you can't get a pizza chain, and probably not even at an upscale pizza place. The ambience is a little more "fast food" than "pizza restaurant", but still a nice place. Staff was pleasant and everything was very clean. There are a lot more pizzas I want to try, so I'll definitely go back :)

  • Chitterne B.

    I have never actually had a sit-down meal here; this review is for take-out only. I agree with other reviewers that some of their combinations sound better than they taste, but the reason I like this place is for their custom pizzas. I LOVE their super thin crust, they are happy to leave the cheese off for a healthier pizza, and they have fantastic toppings like La Quercia Prosciutto, beef brisket, goat cheese, capers, etc. Veggies are always fresh, and the pizza is always cooked to perfection.

    It seems like gourmet pizza places are popping up in DSM faster than I can keep track of them. Since Gusto is affiliated with my absolute favorite restaurant ever (Cafe DiScala), this one has been at the top of my list ever since I caught wind of its opening. I'm happy to report the pizza lived up to my expectations! First of all, know before you go: Gusto is BUSY right now. I don't know if it's just because they're new and the crowds will eventually die down, but you may need to elbow through lots of hungry people and wait in a long line. Since you order at the counter and seat yourself, many of your fellow diners may also be waiting to pounce at the first sign of an empty table. We stood around for awhile before finding a seat. The building itself is brand new, with floor to ceiling windows, wide booths, a few tables, and a bar with several large flat-screen TVs. It's bustling, but once you find a seat you can relax and enjoy the atmosphere. On our first visit, we snagged seats at the bar and grabbed a couple of beers while we waited for our pizza. Gusto has a great beer and wine selection. They've also got sandwiches, pastas, and salads for those who aren't pizza fans as well as a handful of appetizers. I'll admit I was a little disappointed by the utterly ordinary breadsticks; they just didn't live up to the rest of the menu for me. When it was time to order pizza, I had a really difficult time. The signature pies all looked really fun and interesting - I've tried (and loved) both the Pizza de Burgo and The Duke, though Il Figaro looks really tempting and I'm probably going to have to order it next time I go in. Gusto is in an easy-to-find location on the corner of MLK and Ingersoll with a decent amount of parking behind the building. We've done carry-out a couple of times just to avoid the crowds, but the pizza is absolutely worth braving the hordes of people. I'll definitely be back!

    I love love love their eggplant pizza. It's not on the menu but they will make it for you if you ask. Pizza crust is great, toppings are too. Iced tea isn't brewed, but it's still pretty good (I am an iced tea snob). We like to go during "off" times (not at noon) because it can get noisy. The people are very friendly and accommodating. Nice locally owned place.

Not place is 100% perfect; -Not a fan of the super screaming kids each time when we go there, suprised mangement tolerates it, I don't want to go places and pay to hear other kids scream -The App needs some work, some sections recent posts are 9 months old, the coupons and deals section is all alcohol related Hearing rumors of a 2nd location, Jordan Creek Area or Univ. Ave area please!!! Univ Ave near Whole Foods majorly busy area!!

    Made a stop at Gusto Pizza Co. in Des Moines and had some great pizza I had no idea what to expect and was pleased. I was encouraged to try the meat balls and I'll be honest I am not much of a meat ball guy but Gusto has changed that, can't wait to have some more. The marinara Gusto serves is awesome and came with the meatballs and with the cheese bread. It just plain tastes fresh. The pizza had a good crispy crust and topped with what you could tell were quality ingredients. I ordered the "The Duke" which consisted of Russ & Frank's Sassy BBQ sauce, smoked brisket, mozzarella, colby jack, red onion and cilantro. When I saw brisket I was sold, because I love brisket. Personally I like barbeque sauce less and less and could have used less of the Russ & Franks but overall a great pie. Besides the meatballs the Spartacus was the surprise of the night is came with a Red sauce, Graziano's Italian sausage (yum), pepperoni, mozzarella ,and banana peppers. This was my favorite of the two. Overall a great place for pizza that has made my top 5 pizza places I've ever been. As far as a pure pizza place goes I would give it an overall rating of 5 out of 5

  • Liz A.

    I've been here twice now, so I feel like I know what to expect at this place. The first time, I had the Francesco. The second time, my family went and we split three pizzas: the special (John Wayne), West of Philly, Pizza de Burgo. Everything was good - my favorite I think was the Pizza de Burgo. The thin crust, the excellent portion sizes (no need to get a 16'' pizza here or try to figure out how to agree on toppings with a friend..), the variety of pizzas and fresh ingredients will all keep me coming back. The fact that the restaurant is informal and you order at the counter seems perfect for our current economy. The price on wine/beer seemed appropriate as well. Since I drive by on my way home most nights, I think this will be at the top of my list for take out.

    (5)
  • Eric A.

    I've been to Gusto twice now and have enjoyed it both times. While it is a little pricey for being limited to 10" and 12" sized pizzas, it doesn't leave you feeling stuffed and there is a wide range of pizza styles available. The Buffalo Chicken Pizza is excellent if you like that sort of thing. There is a nice little selection of beer to choose from also (think PeaceTree and Madhouse brews).

  • Kris G.

    I really like Gusto pizza, So when I had a lot of family in town, I said lets have pizza and beer tonight. I had three coupons so I called my order in and told "M". At first i was told "one coupon per customer" but after explaining the size of my order (seven pizzas for $130), I was told ok (saving me 20%). BUT, when I got there I was told by M that I could only use one coupon. Sure saving $27 vs. $9 would have been nice, but changing your word is unacceptable to me. I run a small business and I know the value of repeat cutomers. Your decision to charge me $18 more will cost you a lot more in future business. The pizza was still good, but the service left me with a bad taste.

    Love Gusto, The Duke is an Awesome Pizza, also love the Cheezychanga. Some of the other combinations didn't do much for me but to each his own. Parking can be a bit tight since Kosama is right next door.

  • lttlod i.

    Tried Gusto Pizza tonight. We ordered 3 pizzas, forget the names but one had the graziano sausage, peperoni, and banana peppers. The second had meatballs, peppers and onions. The third was the thai chicken. I thought they were all just OK. I've had better all around pizza at Fongs and Big Tomato. Actually, 3 out of the 5 of us wished we had ordered Big Tomato instead. My friend who picked up the pizzas had to wait forever. I guess it was busy and the employees kept letting people cut in line. Uncontrolled chaos. They did just open but with that service they won't be open much longer. Basically, if I had the option I wouldn't go back. expensive for what it is in my opinion. Nothing special

    I am not a pizza person so don't take this review too serious. The atmosphere was really great, modern, clean, bright. Sorta like sports bar but can still be good for family dinning. We had 2 pizzas on St. Patty Day, not packed at all but probably cuz it was pretty new. The cashier was mono-tone but the pizza serving guy was super nice. I liked how they serve the pizzas on the racks so it can save space, but cutting it can be somewhat a challenge. The only thing I can comment on the food was probably how outrages they sound. One of the pizza was Thai Chicken (something like that). Unique flavor, but personally I think the sauce was a bit too salty; another one was BBQ beef (again I can't recall the name), too sweet :S. I mean they are not bad. A fun spot to hangout. The food sound unique but tasted rather conservative. If you are looking for somewhere just to hang, Gusto Pizza would still be a dencent choice.

  • Tony D.

    Actually I did enjoy the pizza I would probably get it takeout next time. When I went there all tables were taken - you place your orders and then it becomes a free-for-all trying to get a table before your food is served. I do not know why any restaurant would want your first impression sitting down to be a filthy table (from sliding into a chair as the previous party is getting up before someone else climbs into it). If they could put together a queue in their busy times and seat people in clean tables I think it would be worth returning

    Eaten here two or three times. Although the pizza concepts sound great, they are only okay. And it is very disappointing because the other restaurant run by the owners of Gusto, Cafe di Scala, is one of my favorites in Des Moines.

    I live in LA, but whenever I'm in Des Moines I make sure to eat at Gusto Pizza as often as possible. Their 'Frank's Special' eggplant sandwich is amazing. I could eat it every day. Their soups are always delicious and their pizzas are awesome. All in all, it's the type of place to find yummy food with yummy ingredients.

  • Mark G.

    Great pizza, great atmosphere. I went there for lunch on their opening day and their Spartacus pizza rocks! Looking forward to trying all the flavors. Glad to see they have a wide variety of flavors and who doesn't love a little gelato after their pizza?

  • Kris D.

    I've tried this place a handful of times now, and I really like it. I like their thin, crispy pizza crust and the top notch ingredients used for toppings. I especially like their $7 pronto lunch special which consists of a very large slice of pizza and a side salad--although are only given the option of two different kinds of pizza on any given day. Their sandwiches I have tried are equally tasty and filling, and they are constantly coming up with interesting new specials.

    Just okay, I prefer a neapolitan pizza. Berry vinaigrette was seedy, needed to be run thru a sieve.

    The topping combinations sounded pretty good, but the several pizzas we tried were all just underwhelming.

    (2)
  • Brett F.

    Eh, the specialty pizzas sounded like a good idea but the combinations end up being a little bland. This is what I call foo foo pizza, or designer pizza. If you are like me and enjoy a big slice of greasy italian pizza then this isn't the place for you. As a matter of fact if I am craving pizza this place doesn't hit my radar as a possible place to go to eat. I will put a positive in this review, their sandwiches are pretty good.

  • NIffer B.

    We really liked Franks pizza when it was down by Drake, so since Gusto has a connection to Franks, we assumed it would be good, and it was. It was the other stuff that makes me give it a 3. We had the house salad, unfortunately overly dressed. We also had the cheese bread, which we agreed was bland. We had the Spartacus pizza which was great, no complaints there. I've heard great things about all the pizzas and appreciate their inventive combinations. What was got really annoying is that by 6:30 it was really busy (awesome for Gusto!) and there was no where for people to wait for a table or food so we had a cranky lady basically standing over our dinner waiting for our table who proceeded to give me dirty looks when we didn't immediately leave after swallowing our last bite. Granted, Gusto can't control rude customers, they could do something to prevent people who are waiting from stalking tables and bumming out other customers, like having a waiting area. We'll definitely go back, the pizza is great, we'll just know better than to order some of the other stuff or go on a busy night.

Pizza

Pizza is a famous Italian dish savored around the world. The entire credit for the popularity of Pizza in the United States goes to the chain of pizzerias all over the country. While the base and the texture of Pizza remains same across the globe, it's the toppings that differs from country to country.

Italian Cuisine

The immense popularity of Italian cuisine globally isn't unknown. You can find an Italian Pizzeria around every corner of almost every city in the United States. Not to forget that in every house, people enjoy mac and cheese as comfort food. But it would be wrong to believe that Italian food starts with pizza and ends with good pasta as this Mediterranean country has much more to offer other than these two dishes. In Italian Cuisine, there is a high use of fresh tomatoes, all kinds of herbs, great quality of cheese, all types of meat, seafood and fresh handmade pasta. Many find it hard to believe that Italians have been making noodles long back.

Italian and Greek cuisines are always mistaken to be same, but they are poles apart. The primary difference between the two cuisines is the use of cheese in most of the Italian dishes. Italians love to cultivate their own cheese and process them as per their food requirement. It is believed that some cheese is so expensive that cheese producers secure them in lockers.

If you are bored eating the same old pasta or pizza, you can try some of the authentic Italian dishes like Risotto, Polenta, Ribollita, Lasagna, Fiorentina Steak, Bottarga, Ossobuco, Carbonara, Focaccia, Arancini and Supplì. Another item which Italians love to relish every morning is a good cup of Italian Coffee. Once you taste a freshly brewed cup of Italian Coffee, you might not visit Starbucks ever again. Authentic Italian food is made with heart and soul, so go find a restaurant where you can relish Italian cuisine in your city.
