Doors will open to the general public at 6:30 pm for music and drinks.

“We are so proud and excited to be opening our doors to guests for the first time,” says Chef Tonino DiBella, executive chef of Gusto Jax. “Our dream at Gusto is to bring the true taste and atmosphere of old world Rome to Jacksonville, and we know people here are going to love it.”

Gusto Jax features classic Roman dishes, including eight different bruschettas, an extensive antipasti menu, housemade breads and pastas, an open pizza tossing kitchen, full bar and Chef’s favorite limoncello and grappa.
