Favorite places to eat

Our all time favorite restaurant is Trattoria Gusto (Port Hope). Great for an evening dinner out. It has a beautiful terrace on the Ganaraska river where you see fishermen in season catching trout or salmon. We recommend any of the Risotto dishes, all their main courses are very good as well as their beet salad. https://www.thewaddell.ca/trattoria-gusto (22 min)
