Really, I hope no-one reads this. We went for Pizza tonight, not really expecting much. We spotted Gusto in the Shambles in Settle. It only has 5 tables, and is the tiniest place you can imagine. The kitchen is open, and on the left as you go in. From here, they rustle up the best dough balls, a range of great pizzas and pastas, and even some full meal specials like a lamb roast dinner. How, I don’t know, but they do.
Front of house, is a lovely friendly chap, who clearly likes his food and beer. Suavely dressed in shorts and scruffy t-shirt, he was absolutely brilliant. A fan of Moretti lager, as is Neil, he had sourced a portable miniature cooler, and had the stuff on draft.
It is difficult to describe the place – but it was superb. Just, please, if you go, don’t tell anyone. With just 5 tables, it will be impossible to get a seat. No website, so no link – sorry. You’ll just have to find it for yourselves.
