Looking for date night worthy Cuban cuisine? Gustavo (“great pleasure”) is the place for you. The Waltham restaurant elevates simple dishes to fine-dining levels: chicharrones made with pork belly and served with avocado puree, sweet plantains wrapped in bacon and olive oil-poached octopus. But the classic entrees are still well represented and exquisitely turned out, including puerco asado and Arroz con pollo, the Sunday dinner favorite. If guests hit a lull in conversation, they can peruse the Cuban-themed book covers that plaster the restaurant walls.
