Little Pizza and Pasta Heaven @ Gusto Giusto in Glenmarie Shah Alam by FollowMeToEatLa


Italians are known throughout the world for their pizza, pasta with tomato sauce, and pizza is one of the most popular Italian meals that almost everyone loves. Let me share some history in honour of this special pizza .....

Pizza Margherita was invented in 1889 to honour the Queen consort of Italy, Margherita of Savoy. The baker or pizza maker from Naples, Raffaele Esposito created the "Pizza Margherita," a pizza garnished with tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and basil to represent the colours of the Italian flag - red (tomato), green (basil), and white (mozzarella). 

Supposedly, this kind of pizza was then named after the Queen as Pizza Margherita. The first known pizza shop was the Port 'Alba in Naples, which opened in 1830 and is still open today.

Topped with homemade tomato sauce, Italian cheese mozzarella and fresh basil, the pizza sure hit the right spots. The flavours were rich and they were generous with the cheese. Loves the crust, it was baked to perfection and not too thick nor too 'crisp' thin. This 10" pizza is priced at only RM 9, real value for money too!

Other Italian pizzas that you can try out include Romeo & Juliet (GG's Special), Marinara, Siciliana, Diavola, Carnivora, Pescatora, Toono e Cipolla,  just to name a few.

I really enjoyed dining @Gusto Giusto as their pasta and pizza are some of the best cooked Italian food I have ever had. The food they serve is really good quality. As the saying goes like this "The best recipe comes from our heart" is no lie!


For the finale, I was served with Espresso to keep us in 'good health'. I read somewhere that coffee may have benefits, such as protecting against Parkinson's disease, type 2 diabetes and liver cancer. And it has a high content of antioxidants.

Real Italian Espresso comes in black, short and hot for only RM 4, pretty decent price to pay for any coffee drinker. What a great and satisfying way to end my gastronomic adventure at this charming Italian restaurant.
