For our one year anniversary, my boyfriend and I took ourselves out to dinner at The Gusto at the Grand Hotel in Auckland Central.

The menu, elegantly presented with a small, yet exquisite selection of true culinary masterpieces let us immerse ourselves into an authentic, Italian atmosphere.

The Ricotta Gnocchi

My boyfriend ordered the Orgy of mushrooms, Clevedon Buffalo Ricotta Gnocchi. Four generous sized, house-made gnocchi. The depth of ricotta flavour throughout the delicate clouds of pasta created a melody of flavours – cheese lovers would be in heaven.

The Sardinian Ravioli

I ordered the Sardinian Ravioli for my main. Presented among beautiful rosemary roasted potatoes, accompanied by mint, pecorino and sage butter – I was in true Italian heaven.

It makes such a huge difference to a dish when every component is homemade – this is what made the ravioli stand out from any other.

An authentic, high-class Italian restaurant, among one of the best in Auckland. Somewhere to go once every blue moon, for special occasions – when you feel like a real Italian experience, led by some of Auckland’s top chefs.
