Hidden in a small square in the center of Treviso, Gustolia is a gastronomic osteria that perfectly combines the atmosphere and flavors of Venetian wine bars with the international mood of the Brooklyn gastro-pubs or the Marais bistros.
Opened in 2013 by three partners, Gianluca, Michele, and Paolo, friends who are passionate about food and wine, it is reborn where the tavern Da Elsa, a historical hanging-out joint in Treviso for artists and bon vivants, left us at the beginning of 2000. A spirit that Gustolia intends to pass on and pay homage, as evidenced by the details of the old tavern, including the beautiful pencil drawings at the entrance to the restaurant, which blend with the industrial design of the interiors entirely conceived with a lot of passion by the owners.
Open every day (Tue-Sun 11: 00-15: 30 and 18: 00-00: 30, Mon 19: 00-00: 00), Gustolia offers an intelligent and versatile menu consisting of both creative and traditional meat dishes and fish, burgers and gourmet salads, with an excellent selection of vegetarian and vegan proposals as well. Many specialties are served in “pots”, perfect single portions for an informal lunch or dinner without giving up a gourmet taste, produced by Le Parfait, a French company chosen for its pot de verres that combine the convenience of finger-food with a très chic design.
Extreme attention is used by the owners in the choice of raw materials and in the selection of wines and spirits, for sale in the small wine shop, carefully chosen to offer the highest quality on the market.
In summer, you can eat in the suggestive outdoor area under a bamboo canopy, illuminated by industrial lights and oriental lanterns, or have an after-dinner drink in the little square in front of the building.
The pencil drawings that adorn Gustolia are the result of the precious artistic work of Giorgio Colleoni, companion of Elsa, the former owner of the homonymous tavern, who delighted in drawing customers and moments of convivial life on the walls of his restaurant. Still incredibly intact after the many restorations of the building, they are a “gift” for all of us, left to remember that respecting history truly enriches our present.
