A complete disappointment for Italian food in Brighton, Michigan. We won't be returning as there are many other better options for Italian. We had veal and chicken piccata which were very tough and non flavorful. The wine we selected was not available. The waitress brought the wrong wine but had already opened it before bringing it to the table. Service... More

Best butternut squash ravioli I have ever had. Every dish tastes like it's made from an old family recipe. We have dined here twice during visits to family in the area and love it every time. Great for a family dinner or a romantic evening. Staff is excellent. Food is delicious.

It is a nice comfortable small restaurant. The wait staff was excellent. It was nice to see a decent gluten free menu. A nice accommodation. We found the food to be better Italian then most we've had in Michigan but not outstanding. The food suffers the Midwest blandness for spice. The minestrone soup was fine, but not notable density. The... More

Definitely have to say Buon Gusto in downtown Brighton is a favorite restaurant of ours. We ate dinner here on July 10, 2014. Service was good - we ate on outdoor patio - it was a beautiful sunny evening in Brighton. I ordered lobster ravioli which was delicious - dinner came with salad. My husband ordered spaghetti (whole wheat) with... More

I am gluten intolerant and this restaurant has a wonderful selection to choose from appetizers to dessert. My husband loves Italian food, and this place is authentic with the owners always present- the Mrs. in the kitchen, and Mr. out greeting their guests. Very friendly, clean, and cozy. Don't waste your time or money on Italian chain restaurants!

We knew we would be stopping to eat near Brighton on a road trip. Being very tired of chain restaurants right off the highway I checked tripadvisor for some better options. We chose Buon Gusto and were very happy we did. I thought on a gorgeous summer Saturday late morning it would be crowded but we were the first ones... More

Went for dinner during the week so it wasn't too busy. Great Atmosphere and outdoor seating and the staff is very friendly. Food was very good too. Prices aren't too bad but totally worth it. I'm not sure if I am an expert on Italian food but much better than your chain restaurants. Tastes homemade. Definitely would go again

Ordered the mushroom tronchetta. It was awesome. I wanted something different and I was not disappointed. Service was very good. Patio seating was very comfortable.
