Gusto develops specials menu based on guest insights

A premium-casual Italian restaurant chain has brought back guests' favourite dishes from past menus, available until 28 July. 

Following a recent survey, in which guests were asked to nominate their favourite Gusto Italian dishes, 500+ responses confirmed three standout meals. The most ordered 'comeback' dish during the period the specials menu is on offer will be added to the autumn-winter 2024 à la carte menu. 

The Comeback Tour menu

The winning starter, main and dessert chosen by fans were:

Creamy Garlic Mushrooms served in a white cream sauce, topped with crispy shallots and served with toasted Puglian bread; Flattened Rump Steak marinated in garlic and rosemary oil and chilli flakes, served with fresh rocket and Parmesan; and Nutella and Mascarpone Calzone, served with vanilla gelato. 

Kat Schofield, the group's head of marketing, says: "At Gusto Italian, our guest feedback is central to our marketing efforts. Following our recent survey, over 500 customers have told us they love these dishes and we're pleased to bring them back for this specials menu. We're also excited to see which dishes win a space on our autumn à la carte menu."

The Comeback Tour menu will be available across all 14 venues including Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Nottingham, Oxford, Liverpool, Alderley Edge, Cheadle Hume, Didsbury, Heswall, Knutsford and Cookridge.
