Gusto Italian returns to Nottingham creating 80 new jobs

GUSTO ITALIAN is returning to Nottingham and will be opening in the heart of the city centre this winter – with the creation of 80 jobs. 

Occupying the former Frankie & Benny’s restaurant, the new ‘fully immersive’ Gusto Italian will sit on the corner of King Street and Upper Parliament Street. Building work has begun to transform the site featuring a truly open kitchen, a cocktail, coffee and cannoli bar and a chef’s-table-style pizza experience, just in time for Christmas. 

Matt Snell, CEO at Gusto, said:

“We’re thrilled to be bringing a new-look Gusto to the people of Nottingham. The new and improved restaurant and bar will be an evolution of the Gusto brand, offering an immersive experience for brunch, lunch, dinner and drinks. 

“Guests will be treated to our iconic Gusto Italian dishes and drinks in the most spectacular of surroundings, watching our talented chefs at work in our truly open kitchen. And that’s not all - we’ve got a chef’s table pizza experience for guests to enjoy too. 

“We are currently recruiting for the 80 roles, including management positions, and are already taking bookings for Christmas and beyond. We have found there is a great deal of excitement and anticipation for the opening of Gusto in the city which is fantastic to hear.” 

One of Gusto’s other new offerings in Nottingham will be its espresso and cannoli bar, which will see guests enjoying authentic coffee and delicious cannolis – tube-shaped Italian pastries filled with a range of sweet fillings. 

The venue will also offer a new brunch menu, including bottomless brunch, unique among its restaurants, to bring the finest of celebration breakfasts to the city. 

Matt added:

“This venue will be something new and exciting, both for the Gusto brand and for Nottingham. The open kitchens will allow our guests to see the passion, skill, and delicious flavours that go into their meal.”
