We went here for our son's birthday and joined him and his fiancée for dinner. It is a cute italian restaurant in downtown Brighton. Since we had no speciic dinner plans we walked the downtown area and decided to have dinner here since it smelled wonderful from the sidewalk. We were promptly seated and ordered a carafe of italian Chianti... More

This wonderful little restaurant serves the greatest healthy Italian food. The people are warm and gracious, and the food is the best. For fancy linens and gobs of pretense, show elsewhere. For real good food and people, you can't beat Buon Gusto.

Date night - perfect choice. You could tell the food was made fresh - it was delicious. Jennifer waited on us & was perfect - funny & knowledgable. Sat on the patio - will return with friends.

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
